Filled With Rubble

On first listen, we're not too impressed by Zimmy's tenth Bootleg Series installment to be honest. And that's not even counting the fact that the renowned rip-off merchants of Sony are asking top dollar for a deluxe edition, which includes the great-sounding 1969 Isle of Wight gig with the Band. On the regular two disc version, only a couple of tunes really stand out: in particular the flawless Pretty Saro and two cool versions of Time Passes Slowly. And that solo piano demo of When I Paint My Masterpiece is an unexpected gem for sure.
