"Acoustic" - lun - nun - qun
Recorded at Byrne Arena, East Rutherford on 8/5/92.
10 tracks on 1 CD.
EC/ Chuck Leavell (Keyboards)/ Andy Fairweather-Low (Guitar)/ Nathan East (Bass)/ Steve Ferrone (Drums)/ Ray Cooper (Percussion)/ Gina Foster (Vocals)/ Katie Kissoon (Vocals)

Circus Left Town/ Tears in Heaven/ Before You Accuse Me/ Tearing us Apart/ Old Love/ Badge/ Wonderful Tonight/ Layla/ Crossroads/ Tears in Heaven

Whilst this CD is titled "Acoustic" certain sections of it cannot be so. The second version of "Tears in Heaven", however, is unexplained, although it's quite possible that it's taken from the widely-sourced "Unplugged" sessions *or* the equally-widely-sourced MTV Awards on 9/9/92.

Despite claims to the contrary in the Bootography Companion, it is my opinion (shared by others) that there is no difference in sound quality between "The Circus Has Left Town" (KTS) and "Tears In Heaven" (KTS). (R.B.)

Rehearsals also took place on the 15th and 16th, but Dylan did not attend, making the likely date of this recording the 13th or 14th. Note that this CD includes an 11-minute interview with EC. (R.B.)


"Celebration Night" - Rare Life Treats - LTCD001/2 - qun
Recorded at Madison Square Garden, New York on 16/10/92.
24 tracks on 2 CDs. Total Time : 74:18/76:17
Band lineup unknown. (See below)

Like a Rolling Stone/ Leopard Skin Pillbox Hat/ Blowin' in the Wind/ Wanted Man/ I Want You/ Foot of Pride/ What Was it You Wanted/ I'll Be Your Baby Tonight/ Highway 61 Revisited/ Seven Days/ Just Like a Woman/ Just Like Tom Thumb's Blues/ All Along the Watchtower/ I Shall be Released/ Love Minus Zero/ Don't Think Twice (It's Alright)/ Emotionally Yours/ When I Paint My Masterpiece/ Absolutely Sweet Marie/ Mr. Tambourine Man/ Song to Woody (Acoustic Version)/ It's Alright Ma/ My Back Pages/ Knockin' On Heaven's Door

Band lineups uncertain because this is the all-star 'Bobfest' from 1992. Eric only played on "Love Minus Zero" and "Don't Think Twice (It's Alright)" plus the final two tracks. Probably to be found filed under Bob Dylan.

Here is a note of interest concerning this release:
"The source is different from the "official" releases, the mixes are quite different in part. If you listen to ECs first opening notes from "Don't Think Twice" on "Celebration Night", the sound is real "open" like an audience recording, then closes in, this doesn't happen on the official releases, I've listened to the CD, the laserdisc, and today the VHS (hearing the tape hiss on Celebration Night, I thought maybe the boot was sourced from the video). And the mix on Harrison's "Sweet Marie" is COMPLETELY different, GE Smith's wonderful Tele work is nonexistent except for his solo on the official release, on the boot it's quite prominent. These are the two most notable differences I can think of, but there are more. A note to that effect might help people wondering why they should purchase Celebration Night if they already have the Bobfest." (M.D.)

Anything for Your Love/ Pretending/ Badge/ Wonderful Tonight/ Layla/ Crossroads/ Sunshine of Your Love/ My Father's Eyes/ She's Waiting/ Let It Rain

There is no doubt that this recording is largly taken from the Brighton show. It is also certain that "Let It Rain" is from another show, and possibly there are other songs from yet another show. I personally have only heard one song from this CD ("My Father's Eyes") and it from Brighton. I've received conflicting information from a number of Slowhand subscribers, but it would seem that perhaps all of the CD is from Brighton except "Let It Rain", which I've been told is from Festival Hall, Brisbane, Australia on 14-04-75 and was released on "Milk Cow Blues". (R.B.)


"Tears in Heaven" - Kiss The Stone - KTS 138/9 - 4
Recorded at the Brighton Centre on 01/02/92.

Despite claims to the contrary in the Bootography Companion, it is my opinion (shared by others) that there is no difference in sound quality between "The Circus Has Left Town" (KTS) and "Tears In Heaven" (KTS). (R.B.)

Elton John introduces "Runaway Train" as its first public performance. The guitar is faint for this one track only. (R.B.)
