NOTE: To be avoided: An incomplete version of a recording which circulates in more complete form; the tracklist has also been scrambled from the actual performance order.
DEEP: Not recommended.
rmd: Pretty bad by most standards, but reasonably solid for summer 1991. The singing is mostly wretched, and the lyric recall definitely below par even for the period. Still, shows like this have a special edge. Dylan may be drunk and singing into the wrong microphone at times, but the arrangements are generally fabulous (although not exactly well-executed). Soundwise, no problems that judicious use of the equalizer can't fix. Sounds just fine then, although you might not have wanted to hear things quite so clearly after all. (DM)
