Unfortunately there was an import duty to pay of £119.36 to pay. (Which means I'm not too popular with Mrs Bill!)
Mine is number 3008 out of the 5000 issued.
I may be away for a while now!


you'll have to lay off the beer for a week or so to pay for that! the inhumanity of it all

I need someone, Bill, Jules, Gub, to talk to me about being a completist cos it's never been something i have ever felt motivated to do.
I have one version of Sailors Life. Do i want the version without Swarb on it ? No.
Do i want to have the original version of Stairway to Heaven played on the Indonesian nose flute? No.
So help me out lads and explain the compulsion.

I can't help you. I am not a completist by any stretch, as evidenced by my only buying the 2 disc version of this. I understand the compulsion with Dylan though. There are so many gems amongst his rare and unreleased work, particularly from periods when the official releases were not so strong. By and large with other artists I don't feel the need for multiple versions of the same song. Except Sloth.

By the way, had it not been for the Swarbless version of A Sailor's Life, I might never have learned to love the song. I didn't like the original for years. The Swarbless version drew me back to it. I didn't buy it for completism though. Watching The Dark was released in the early days of my RT fandom and much of the material on it was out of print at that point. It was the only way for me to hear a lot of music by an artist of whom my collection at that time was, at best, nascent. It is still probably the best RT compilation except for Guitar Vocal.

Maybe you don't have an addictive personality, Hendo.  Did you never collect anything as a kid?  It's pretty much the same thing.  "I must collect the set."  Maybe it's a sign of a dormant hunter/gatherer instinct.  Or maybe it's indicative of being on the autistic spectrum.  If you don't have it, be glad - be free!  It's often more of a curse than a pleasure, if I'm being honest.

I would consider myself to be a collector rather than a completist when it comes to Dylan, mainly because It would be almost impossible to track everything down (a copy of the first pressing of "Freewheelin'" with a different track listing recently sold for $35000)
This is by far the most expensive set I have ever bought and I really thought long and hard about it.
As I mentioned earlier in the thread, I recently stopped smoking and wanted to treat myself to something with some of the money I had saved.
Having looked into this set I found it was something I really wanted, so thought "what the heck!"
Also, although I would never sell the set, once I am no longer around my family may want to and I am sure it will at least keep its value.
If you haven't seen it, try this.

Thanks both. No , I've never had the collector thing Jules, not even as a kid. Occasionally musical shaky things have to be bought but it's not addictive. I know a drummer who has 950+ pieces of percussion. He has just bought the house next to his ,to house his collection.
I had a period when i bought gear for caving and climbing but it was all, obviously, vital! Never was a serious gear freak.
I'd never refuse a climbing or music biog though.......and i can't let them go but It's not really a collection per se.

Cheers Bill. i'm sure Mark and Nigel will be heavily in to this when i see them next week.
I think being able to buy something as a complete indulgence is wonderful.
Our van , was that and it's been a joy!

Sorry Al, should probably have said collector rather than completist.
Blood on the tracks is one of my regular return to albums but i wouldn't want any other versions of the songs. I have friends who do not understand this mentality!!!!

Stop it, Bill, I am drooling envy all over my laptop.

Well that's one instance where you really might be missing out.  The alternate masters are really worth hearing, only if it's just once.  No, really.  You'd be mad not to.  Mad, I say, quite mad!!

Man, that sucks. I would be more excited about that than the studio stuff. I would definitely buy that if it was released commercially, in whatever format.
