DEEP A motley crew of tracks recorded at an unknown rehearsal in '87 with an unidentified band. The quality is excellent w/great separation, full sound and Dylan's vocals loud and clear. The tracks are more fully realized/less fragmented than those from the 1989 rehearsals; these tracks play more like outtakess than rough rehearsals. There are only 3 instrumentals. Lyrical differences abound. The band infuses all the tracks with a bluesy, rockin' sound - they are no slouches and you can feel Dylan being driven by them. A fine sounding band, nice "performances" all around. The bonus trax (which are not the best quality) seem out of place but it's better than nothing. Packaging is better than average, with nice color photos throughout. Highly recommended.

rmd: The performances are rough, with the anonymous band lost at times, unsure of Dylan's intentions. Still, the music is far more enjoyable than the 1987 rehearsals with the Dead. The sound quality is very good throughout. The choice of filler tracks is odd.
