2-CD Bootleg with 1964/65 acoustic and electric (with Al Kooper and the Paul Butterfield blues band) Dylan shows at the Newport Folk Festival, and the Hollywood Bowl, Los Angeles, CA 09.03.65 concert. Hollywood Bowl was the second show Dylan did with Levon and Robbie (plus Al Kooper and Harvey Brooks on organ and bass).

The sound quality of the Dylan Newport '65 electric set is good, Very clear sound and interesting crowd noise - not nearly as negative as is historically alleged. It also contains a very nice sound quality (and as complete as exists) version of the Hollywood Bowl show.

From the list of songs, it looks like this bootleg uses the stereo mixes of the Newport '65 tracks, which have overdubbed crowd noise between tracks, so what you're hearing isn't really the Newport audience. That said, complete line recordings of that show do exist (albeit in mono), and while the audience isn't quite as loud as on the stereo mixes, they still seem pretty happy - no boos, the only complaints being after Bob leaves the stage - they simply wanted to hear more of him.
