(Radio.com) Bob Dylan fans will soon be able to listen to many rare live recordings of the singer in concert from numerous shows he performed in 1966. The giant 36-CD box set, fittingly called The 1966 Live Recordings, will be available on November 11.

The set includes complete recordings of many of the concerts Dylan played throughout 1966 in the U.S., U.K. and Europe. The mostly unreleased tracks come from soundboards, CBS Records mobile recordings and audience tapes.

"While doing the archival research for The Cutting Edge 1965-1966: The Bootleg Series Vol. 12, last year's box set of Dylan's mid-Sixties studio sessions, we were continually struck by how great his 1966 live recordings really are," Adam Block, president of Legacy Recordings, said in a press release. "The intensity of Bob's live performances and his fantastic delivery of these songs in concert add another insightful component in understanding and appreciating the musical revolution Bob Dylan ignited some 50 years ago."

One of Dylan's two performances at London's Royal Albert Hall will be sold separately as The Real Royal Albert Hall 1966 Concert and include a performance of "Tell Me, Momma," which was never put on a studio album. His Royal Albert Hall recordings will be available on November 25.Read more here.
