Great White Wonder, or GWW, is the first notable rock bootleg album, released in July 1969, and containing unofficially released recordings by Bob Dylan. It is also the first release of the famous bootleg record label Trademark of Quality (or TMQ). Several of the tracks presented here were recorded with The Band in the summer of 1967 in West Saugerties, New York, during the informal sessions that were later released in a more complete form in Dylan's 1975 album The Basement Tapes.

Rare vintage "Fan club" double album! "Bob dylan- great white wonder". The condition of the gatefold cover is about VG+ with some tape on seams and minor writing. The condition of both discs are VG+ and play well. This is the first underground rock release, a legendary double album originally pressed in a run of 1,000-2,000 copies by two anonymous . insiders known as Dub and Ken. It began appearing in stores in June 1969, and got its nickname from the plain white jacket. This is the second version, still from 1969, but decorated with the titular stamp.

Bob Dylan’s fantastic new album opens with a train song. Given the wrath to come and the often elemental ire that accompanies it, not to mention all the bloodshed, madness, death, chaos and assorted disasters that will shortly be forthcoming, you may be surprised that what’s clattering along the tracks here isn’t the ominous engine of a slow train coming, a locomotive of doom and retribution, souls wailing in a caboose. Dusquesne Whistle, instead, and at odds it will shortly transpire with much we go on to encounter, joyfully evokes the jubilee train of gospel legend, bound for glory; a salvation express full of hopeful hallelujahs, its destination somewhere better than here, this sickly place and its trampled sadness, unceasing strife and grief everywhere you look.

The two-disc ‘Great White Wonder’ features 26 cuts and does not please Columbia. The Artwork of Bob Dylan. Some objected to the simple packaging– a white double sleeve with Great White Wonder rubber stamped in the upper righthand corner – said, while others indicated they were afraid of how Columbia might react. Those shops carrying the LP seem happy, though, with many reporting the album’s arrival has had the same effect on business as a new Beatles or Stones LP might have: Business generally has picked up. Of all the songs offered in the package, only three had previously been released by Dylan, and all were then in a different form.

The first ever Bob Dylan bootleg album, Great White Wonder. The first ever popular rock bootleg to appear on the black market was Dylan's Great White Wonder, a double album first coming to underground record stores in mid-1969, through a young bootleg label, "Trademark of Quality" TMQ1 It contained a variety of material: several tracks coming from a hotel rehearsal in December 1961 recorded by then-girlfriend Bonnie Beecher, Witmark.

Notes

This version of The Great White Wonder is thought to have originated from the UK around 1970 or 1971. The plain white stamped gate-fold cover is of thinner stock as used in Europe and the UK at the time- although the sides are Auto-Coupled which might suggest it was actually pressed in the USA. The reason it is sub-titled 'uncut' is not really known although it could be an update of the single LP UK version released around the same time- or it could be a reference to the fact that it contains an extra song than the standard release by adding 'Mixed Up confusion'.
Title, ' GREAT WHITE WONDER -UNCUT-' is stamped on the front.
Records have plain white labels and the word 'cooper' has been stamped and then scratched out in the run-out groove of each side.
