NOTE: The original packaging for this set gave no date or venue information, and the original entry here was reconstructed from a previously posted report on the disc which included conspicuous errors (not the least of which was the reversal of discs 2 and 3 in the track listing). That entry proved only to be less conspicuously riddled with newly incorrect information. I appreciate the extensive assistance I have received in compiling a corrected entry

CDG: Intimate, powerful, and diverse. High quality recordings, excellent song selection.

rmd: Sound quality is unacceptably low (Masato Kato).
There's much to like here, though I'm grateful Bob didn't continue performing in this fashion for long. The Heartbreakers provide excellent backing, and it's nice to hear piano, absent for so long now, especially on the acoustic tracks. Dylan's vocals suffer a bit from that cotton-mouth duck sound heard on the Dead tour, and indeed some peculiar, unpleasant garbles occasionally escape his throat, but I enjoy several of his performances here. The diverse song selections makes for interesting listening, even when the performance falters. The sound quality varies, but much of it is excellent to me ears, and the worst of it is still listenable. The edits are rough between the songs, with no effort for continuity or grace.
