A new boxset of Bob Dylan‘s Rolling Thunder Revue Tour will be released in conjunction with Martin Scorsese‘s forthcoming documentary about the tour, Rolling Thunder Revue: A Bob Dylan Story by Martin Scorsese. The box set is due out on June 7th, with the Scorsese-directed documentary arriving on Netflix and in select theaters a few days later on June 12th.The 14-disc boxset, Rolling Thunder Revue: The 1975 Live Recordings, comprises 148 tracks from five full Dylan sets that were professionally recorded throughout the tour. The box set will also include three discs of rehearsals and one disc of rare performances.Rolling Thunder Review Tour was more of a traveling musical caravan than a well-structured concert run. It began back in October 1975 and continued until March 1976, with 57 total shows performed over two legs. The tour featured an impressive mix of guest musicians including Joan Baez, T-Bone Burnett, Beatnik icon and poet Allen Ginsberg, Mick Ronson, and many more.Dylan’s Desire LP would also be released in January 1976 between the two parts of the lengthy tour, which was initially chronicled in a 1978 film, Renaldo and Clara. The tour was titled in tribute to a Native American shaman by the same name, although some have claimed the tour name was a reference to the aerial bombardment campaign by the U.S., which took place during the late 1960s as part of the Vietnam War.Rolling Thunder Revue: The 1975 Live Recordings Disc Listing:DISC 1: S.I.R.
