He was a guitarist and occasional lead singer with the Steve Miller Band in the 1960s, and in the 1970s gained fame with several solo Top 20 hit singles in the United States.

Bob Dylan LIVE: Rare Collections From the Copyright Collections 1962-1966
The songs in the two-CD set are drawn from limited-run compilations Sony has released in the past six years to protect the recordings from European copyright law, which stipulates that recordings that remain unreleased for 50 years enter the public domain.
