DEEP: The Cottbus portion of this set is presented in excellent quality - upfront and punchy, with vocals and instrumentation crisp and clear and all nuances intact. Bob and the gang deliver a performance to match here, loud and strong and energetic and passionate. From the opening roll, Dylan's vocals are on the mark and the band rolls right along with him. A nice selection of filler (albeit in lesser quality but still pleasing) completes a very worthwhile disk. Two things about the packaging these are the best looking disks of all time with full color repros of the Cottbus and Magdeburg tickets on each. Very cool. The front insert folds out into a full color poster - a nice touch.
