There are various options:
a. OLOF BJORNER'S SUMMARIES
If you've got a little disk space to spare [approx. 1.5 megabytes],
you can download Olof's year-by-year Bob Dylan archive - which lists
Dylan's public appearances and recordings, gives handy reference
tables of songs played on tour, and even lists recommended tapes by
tour! The best part is that it's free for your own personal use.
Don't try printing it out unless you've got the time & ribbons - the
combined total of all the files would be on the order of 600 pages...

b. POSITIVELY BOB DYLAN by MICHAEL KROGSGAARD:
(this book is frequently referred to simply as 'Krogsgaard' on this
newsgroup). This tome numbers Dylan's circulating performances and
lists the songs performed at each and every known circulating Bob
Dylan recording through early 1991. There are always gaps and changes
as new tapes surface, but this book is essential to the serious
collector! It provides a fast, easy reference for identifying tapes
and so on. The main disadvantage of such a serious book is that it
costs about US$55. Ordering information: Popular Culture Ink, P.O.
