DEEP: This set is top heavy with 5 tracks from the incredible Berlin 6/17/96 show; however, these tracks fall short in the quality department, sounding a bit compressed and noisy. Fortunately, the remaining 7 tracks are all well chosen and inspired performances. A nice collection that would be much improved had they used a better source for the Berlin selections or, better yet, replaced them altogether with tracks from other shows.

rmd: The sound quality is among the best I've heard on a live bootleg. Haven't taken the CD off the player. Dylan's voice is really excellent throughout, and the band simply cooks. (TIMHRK)
