TAKRL says: “Last Roy N. Oak cover. Last double with original back cover.”
According to bobsboots.com: “The back is a close up of Dylan & Baez sharing the same mic, and also contains the track listing, venue and song info, as well as the company logo. The matrix is hand carved, and along with it “TAKRL” is carved on each disc. The Newport material had circulated for a decade, and was used mostly for filler. The crux of this release are the songs that were Passed Over for the official BOTT release, and a Rolling Thunder venue that Bob had recently played.
In 1977, the LP was pressed again and released in a similar package.
A 1978 re-release has basically the same image as is pictured, with info listed below. There is no back insert, ‘World labels’.
Also re-released in late ’78 with original inserts and yellow Spindizzie labels/
