It's worth it for following Dylan's studio process. He doesn't try too many different versions of the songs, just adding (sparse) instruments after starting off acoustic. In The Cutting Edge from the Bootleg Series, covering 1965-1966, we hear radically different early versions of songs like Visions of Johanna and Like a Rolling Stone, among others, but with this set, the songs are fully written before he entered the studio, but there's maybe more switches in tone, as if he's settled on the melodies, but is working out how best to perform them. The repetition is quite mesmeric....
