“Hey Joe” is an American popular song from the 1960s that has become a rock standard and as such has been performed in many musical styles by hundreds of different artists. “Hey Joe” tells the story of a man who is on the run and planning to head to Mexico after shooting his unfaithful wife. However, diverse credits and claims have led to confusion as to the song’s true authorship and genesis. The earliest known commercial recording of the song is the late-1965 single by the Los Angeles garage band The Leaves; the band then re-recorded the track and released it in 1966 as a follow-up single which became a hit.
All things considered, this set stands as one of the all time great musical releases. Yes, that includes legitimate Label releases as well. Dylan and CBS have truly missed the mark here by not giving a thumbs up to this shows full release.

Bob Dylan played Carnegie Hall, NYC on October 26 in 1963.
The concert was professionally recorded & Columbia was planning a release in December 1963.. rather late 64 or early 65 (check out comment from Peter Stone Brown), but they did not put it out.
6 songs were released in 2005 on the EP “Live at Carnegie Hall 1963”
“Talkin’ John Birch Paranoid Blues” and “Who Killed Davey Moore?” were originally released on The Bootleg Series Volumes 1-3 (Rare & Unreleased) 1961-1991
“A Hard Rain’s A-Gonna Fall” and “When the Ship Comes In” were released on The Bootleg Series Vol. 7: No Direction Home: The Soundtrack.
The 30th Anniversary Concert Celebration is a live double-album release in recognition of Bob Dylan’s 30 years as a recording artist. Recorded on October 16, 1992 at Madison Square Garden in New York City, it captures most of the concert, which featured many artists performing classic Dylan songs, before ending with three songs from Dylan himself.
As a precursor of things to come, Winston Watson is the sole beatmaster tonight. Watson does not attempt anything too ambitious, although Dylan
does attempt “Pretty Peggy-0” and “Queen Jane Approximately” to test his mettle.

“… he was clearly more than up for it, leaving his keyboard and standing centre-stage, sans guitar, for a mesmerising Love Sick, acting out the song with hand movements and, er, strangely demonic grins. I’ve never seen him like that before.
The energy level was maintained for Just Like Tom Thumb’s Blues but ramped up still further for Can’t Wait, delivered in a pile-driving stop-start fashion.”
