April 12, 1963

See That My Grave Is Kept Clean
Ballad Of Donald White
A Hard Rain's A-Gonna Fall
James Alley Blues (Times Ain't What They Used To Be)
I Rode Out One Morning
Don't Think Twice, It's All Right
Long Time Gone
Only A Hobo
House Of The Risin' Sun
Cocaine (instrumental)

The second MacKenzie tape is more interesting than the first because by the time of this recording Dylan was already an established star. In fact, this tape (or most of it anyway) was made the very afternoon of the famous Town Hall concert.

Like the first MacKenzie tape, the sound quality is dismal, but since it contains a few rarities like I Rode Out One Morning and Long Time Gone, it's worth seeking out. The setting is informal and the performances offhand and relaxed. Some of the material at the beginning of the tape could possibly be from an earlier session.
