...When word came through of a pending '81 BOB DYLAN Earl's Court title last week, I made the immediate assumption that it would be a previously unreleased audience source tape, and when the scans arrived I was really surprised to see 'stereo soundboard' on the sleeve...well, it turns out it was a misprint.  Oh well...this new title from Euro player Raz Records, "Live In '81 Earls' Court" 2CD set (pictured above) is an alternate audience tape of the June 28th, 1981 London concert which includes for the first time to CD, the gospel portion of the show that precedes Dylan's set...this recording comes via the collection of Mike B. who provided the ROLLING STONES September 8, 1973 audience tape from last year, as well as the fairly recent new GENESIS recording from Earl's Court 1975.  This DYLAN '81 set should be a great title given how inspired these London shows were!...Also from Raz is a limited 2CD pressing of the two 1988 Denver and New Jersey soundboards that were just issued from Scorpio earlier in the  year, the set is simply titled "Live In '88" and is pictured below...
