Bob Dylan's historic return to touring in 1974 is being collected in a new massive box set, Bob Dylan - The 1974 Live Recordings.

The 27 discs collect 431 tracks, 417 previously unreleased, from Dylan's 1974 tour with the Band. It marked his first extended run of the road since his contentious 1966 tour, also with the Band.

The upcoming box, which will be released on Sept. 20, collects 27 shows from Dylan's performances with the Band in 1974. A few weeks into the shows, they released Planet Waves, the first studio album made by Dylan and the Band. Dylan played arenas for the first time on this tour, performing 30 shows over 42 days. There were often two sets - afternoon and evening - each day.

Like 2016's The 1966 Live Recordings, which celebrated the 50th anniversary of that year's tour with a 36-CD set, The 1974 Live Recordings documents all of the professionally recorded shows from the tour.

Dylan had played only a handful of live sets since 1966, so anticipation was high for one of music's most popular artists.

What Is on Bob Dylan's 'The 1974 Live Recordings' Album?

The dates started on Jan. 3 in Chicago and ran through Feb. 14 in Inglewood, California. In between, Dylan and the Band played shows in Philadelphia, Toronto, Atlanta and Seattle, among other cities.

The arena tour has been cited as the first major one of its kind, setting the stage for all that followed.

A double live album, Before the Flood, was culled from the tour and released in June 1974. According to a press release for the new box, the shows were "captured on a stereo soundboard mix, on both 1/4” tape and cassette. By tour’s end, Asylum Records’ David Geffen had commissioned recordings on multitrack tape, the standard at the time, for eventual release on Before the Flood.

"The 1974 Live Recordings includes it all - the cassettes and 1/4” tapes, and the shows that were recorded on 16-track tape, newly-mixed for this collection."

You can hear "Forever Young" from the afternoon show in Seattle on Feb. 9 below.

The shows included deep cuts like "Hero Blues," hits "Lady Lady Lay" and "Like a Rolling Stone," and songs from Dylan's catalog dating back to the '60s ("It Ain't Me, Babe," "Gates of Eden") through Planet Waves ("Nobody 'Cept You," "Forever Young").
