DEEP: While the sound is not upfront and in your face, Dylan's vocals shine through very clear and the instruments are all there, if not full-bodied. Dylan sings the drastically re-arranged tunes them with a certain gusto and the band performs with equal aplomb. If you can get by the flute and the saxes, there is much to offer from this performance. Dylan's singing, phrasing, the guitar playing, the back-up singers, blues, reggae backbeats are all on fine display. But Watchtower drops (among others) the final two tracks, substituting the closing songs from a 1994 show. Generic cover design.

CDG: Not particularly recommended. The show is very nice, but the sound quality isn't very good.
