Was just in my local HMV (Dublin) wer it was €149.99 !!!
So cheap by all accounts.


It’s now £100 on the Rise site, looks like they made a mistake. I’m going to gamble on a post release reduction or getting it second hand from someone who doesn’t like it. The contents of this release will not be everyone’s cup of tea.


Not as good as Amazon.de, but Rise Music (an independent for those of you wishing to support the independents) in Bristol are offering the 6CD version for £90 with free postage (www.rise-music.co.uk); £9.99 cheaper than many (most?) places at the moment and £11.99 cheaper than the current price on Amazon.co.uk. I should say I have no affiliation with the store ….. looking forward to getting my hands on this shortly!

Does look like a beautiful set though. Seems they’ve learnt from the standards / packaging of the ‘Genuine Bootleg Series’ & ‘Genuine Live ’66’ sets on Scorpio in the ’90’s. Jeez, they were superb. Assuming they’ve improved the audio significantly from the ‘A Tree With Roots’ boot, this could be the sort of set you live inside for a while, to the exclusion of anything else. (The first Guided By Voices ‘Suitcase’ set was like that. Don’t think I listened to anything else for 6 months!). Dammit, I’m in!

Even if I am sort of fan Dylan, I think this set might be little overkill for even me. Dunno really, well I got the preorder still alive..

Charles Hodgson

“The way of the future”, as Howard Hughes said. Maybe I’m a little too “Howard Hughes-like” though. I like my possessions (well, my records anyway) too much to part with them!


Well I buy the box sets then make lossless copies of all the audio files and sell the boxes on. All the audio for little money spent. I can live without the books and memorabilia.

Charles Hodgson

Works out at £73.45 with the additiional UK shipping. The cheapest UK option so far, but still too pricey. Surely £50 would be fair for 6 CD’s and book? Pre-ordered the Velvet Underground Third 45th Anniversary Super Deluxe for that price with similar contents / dimensions.

Mike, heres few answers:

Vinyl version is 75€ on Amaazon.fr, cheaper than amazon.de. Why is amazon.de cheaper on cd and not the vinyl version?
I think the products are sent from the same warehouse in Luxemburg.

It’s usual for Amazon that each store has certain price, and some formats are cheaper and some little higher price than on another Amazon. I have been looking for few different items on various Amazon-stores in last few years and it seems that FR and DE have almost similar prices, but like for example some cd-boxset might be 5-15€ cheaper on another then the vinyl-box is likewise on the other.
It does not actually mean anything, eventhough the items probably are dispatched via the same place, sometimes Amazon hides or atleast tries to hide the origin of the place the package was dispatched from.

Do you know if the vinyl comes with the same book as the 6CD edition ?

Nope. It wont be the same book. As the deluxe-edition boxsets from Bootleg Series 8 Tell Tale Signs and Bootleg Series 10 Another Self Portrait, those cd-set had 2 books and that particular book is not available with any other option or format. Surely, 2cd and vinyl-edition will have something but completely different smaller thing.

Is there a plan of a complete vinyl version with the 138 tacks ?
Nope. There are no plans for such boxset to be released on vinyl at the moment. The Only places to get full 138 songs is to buy the cd-boxset or get the digital download (for example from iTunes).

Thanks John

Colin Fletcher

Thanks Richie


I had it on order with both Amazon uk and de too with the idea being to cancel the most expensive one just before release. However, I’ve cancelled both, ordered the 2 disc version instead and will spend the money saved on the forthcoming Wilco boxset:


Justin Isbell

Thanks for the tip…I’ve placed my order on both the UK and German sites now. I’ll cancel the most expensive just before dispatch!!

Colin Fletcher

This may be a silly question, but is it the same package throughout the world ie. written in English regardless of where it is released?


Same all over.

It has been on that lower price over at Amazon.DE for sometime already now. Seems to be the best price in EU.
