My Back Pages - as previous, but with Dylan vocal overdubbed (5 Min)

This set brings together all available rehearsals, interviews, extras, and performances. It was compiled in the spirit of other Genuine sets, eg., The Genuine Basement Tapes, where all available resources are sought for the sake of completeness. It thus includes three pre-broadcast performances, two by G.E. Smith and one by John Hammond, Jr., that are not included on previous DVD sets, as well as interviews that were conducted with the performers. It also restores the original order of the pre-broadcast and broadcast performances. Finally, Disk 4 contains an overdubbed version of My Back Pages, the one in which Dylan's vocal was improved. Also see D343, D050, D050.3.

Authoring: DVDs with menu and chapters are circulating

This four-disk set is culled from the best available sources and was professionally-edited and authored by Backpages. Except for the G.E. Smith and John Hammond, Jr. pre-broadcast performances, the quality is excellent. The Smith and Hammond performances were transferred from a 3rd generation tape and are thus only fair video quality with audio static.
