Bob dylan - Now's the time For Your Tears [Bootleg] [1965]

Free Trade Hall, Manchester, UK May 7, 1965

This is one of many Free Trade Hall Bootlegs of excellent sound quality and, most important to me, this is Dylan at his very very best.
I cannot get enough of his shit from back in the day when he really put some effort into his gigs (It is arguable he no longer does according to my very reliable sources)
This disc will wow you. It will send you into silence from the moment the opening track begins until you find yourself in awe and stunned when it ends!
Believe me, you haven't heard Bob Dylan if you haven't got much experience of his pre electric 1965 shows.
He sometimes sounds like a totally different artist on some of the tracks.
Something I always note on discs like this is the way he sings so tunefully(something he later lost in my opinion) and also the way he prolongs certain harmonica sections to show just how well he can play the thing.
If you want a bit more info then have a look Here (and more confusingly, also Here), Here and Here where I lifted this quote - 'There is perhaps no better bootleg available then this one. This could easily be a commercial release. The CD provides the complete concert with the exception of the opening lines of Talkin' World War III Blues (8). This is one of the last recordings of a purely acoustic live Bob Dylan concert...'

This is generally regarded as one of the best Bob Dylan bootlegs ever and it is a huge pleasure to bring it to you here.
I encoded it from the FLAC files at the same Highest VBR setting as I use for the Theme Time Shows so it sounds great.
Oh I only included the covers here for effect, the better quality covers are also included in the rar archive. They aren't that good anyway to be honest. Pretty shoddy artwork!
Maybe I'll make my own and share them if anyone wants them.
One last response to the request for different mirrors I posted this one also up on Depositfiles as it has a good policy for keeping the files. Sorry but turboupload is not turbo for's slow and uploads kept disconnecting! Hope this new additional mirror helps someone.

Enjoy Enjoy Enjoy!
And leave a comment if you are an old fan and already have this and a million other boots or if you are new to this style of Dylan. Just let me know what you thought!

This is the first of many let me say but also let me remind you my health is just shit right now and I apologise for the delay between posts around here.
As long as people keep downloading and post the odd comment then I'll keep doing this!

The story of Bob Dylan is that of below average musician who through his extraordinary songs became superimportant and then fell from a horse of fame and finally lost his importance and was left with crazy fans who are telling him to this day that he is still fine, and his music is still great, while that's a terrible lie. Wake up, Dylan, and write - if you really want it and if you read it, of course - for a new generation, for which you're almost nobody in this moment. Leave all your old fans behind and write for new ones. Fuck all your past records and create an album as if it is for the first time.

Thanks for the comments people. I agree this is definitely my favourite period from Dylan's history. I am now starting to hardly listen to his later stuff as it is so different and nowhere near as stirring or cerebral with the lyrics,.
Regards to the last comment rzy, sounds a bit harsh when you put it like that but I tend to think that underlying it is a valid point. Dylan isn't part of the music scene these days but come he 'supposed' to be? How many other old rockers his age are 'convincingly and seriously' fitting into this new age of music?
They all get by on the strength of their older and crazy fans. I don't know of many new or young fans of The Who or The Rolling Stones do you??
I think their time came and now has gone. Dylan HAS written a new album remember...not very long ago.
I hate it.
A lot of people think it is great but I suspect, like you say, most of them are die hard fans or fans from the older times when he really was a super talent.
I wouldn't go so far as to insult him as I think he should just get old gracefully now...though I would start being insulting if he just refused to give it up and kept bringing out bloody albums of mediocrity that are shaming his past musical history by their very production!
