Back in 1992, a bunch of great and famous musicians got together to honor Bob Dylan’s 30th anniversary of music at Madison Square Garden in New York City. It was subsequently released on VHS and CD, but now it’s been reworked with previously unreleased songs, and it’s on DVD and Blu-ray. Cool.

The 2-DVD and Blu-ray versions of The 30th Anniversary Concert Celebration – Deluxe Edition include 40 minutes of previously unreleased material including behind-the-scenes rehearsal footage, interviews and more.

The 2-CD audio edition premieres two previously unreleased recordings from the concert’s sound check: Sinéad O’Connor singing “I Believe In You” and Eric Clapton’s interpretation of “Don’t Think Twice, It’s Alright.” Sinead had just been on Saturday Night Live, where she had torn up the photo of the Pope. When she took the stage to perform her Dylan cover, she was boo’ed off. Therefore, just a sound-check. But a good one, we hear.

The concert lineup also shows very young versions of Pearl Jam’s Eddie Vedder and Mike McCready.

There are also some great performances from musicians who we have lost since 1992: Lou Reed, Johnny Cash, June Carter Cash, Richie Havens, Tommy Makem of The Clancy Brothers, The Band’s Levon Helm, and George Harrison.
