Bob Dylan – Bonnie Beecher's Apartment, December 22 1961

This bootleg was recorded December 22, 1961 at Bonnie Beecher's Apartment in Dinkytown, Minnesota.Dinkytown is a small "student-centric" shopping and entertainment area just off the campus of the University of Minnesota.

Bonnie Beecher's Apartment was called 'The Minnesota Hotel' because it was a revolving door for the 'musicians types'.

"…the most famous of Dylan’s many “home” tapes, the so-called “Minneapolis Hotel Tape.” Recorded by Tony Glover at Bonnie Beecher’s apartment in Minneapolis, whimsically dubbed The Beecher Hotel by Dylan (hence the title of the tape), large portions of this tape appeared on the first Dylan bootleg album, the legendary Great White Wonder."
~Clinton Heylin (Bob Dylan: A Life in Stolen Moments Day by Day 1941-1995)

"The December tape has been in wide circulation for many years. It was actually the first bootleg ever produced. It was released on a 2 LP set in 1969, and went by the title ‘Great White Wonder’ It has been available under various titles a countless number of times in the decades that followed. The quality has generally been very good, and the performance tells the story of a fresh faced boy just out of high school, who had the energy and natural ‘world-traveled weariness’ quality that would forever change the world. It is absolutely required material for even the smallest collection."

Please check if there are "jumps" in BOTH "Man Of Constant Sorrow" and "Naomi Wise" (most likely, there ARE, as I only know of one bootleg incarnation where those are NOT present -- it certainly would be nice if this were another one WITHOUT them!)
