DEEP: The interesting and surprise filled "free" Edge show whose purpose was (pick 'em): 1) warm-up rehearsal for the fall tour, or 2) Dylan's tribute/goodbye to Garcia, or 3) a little of both. Whatever it was, it turned out to be a most esoteric of "shows," with no less than 6 rarely-if-ever played tunes and some commoners given drastic new arrangements. The sound quality, given the tight security circumstances at this show, is not up to the high standards of the best 95's; however, the sound is well balanced and, although Bob's vocals are not as upfront as we'd like, they are clear and distinct. Best are the "slower" tunes, where the sound nuances and vocalizing are a bit more distinctive. Anyway, this is an extremely enjoyable disk and a show unlike one we will ever hear again. The filler trax are quite good, albeit a bit high end biased. Another one that goes out highly recommended.

CDG: While the sound quality may be below average for recent shows, it's good enough to listen to -- and the setlist alone makes it worthwhile. Well-chosen filler, too.
