Tracklist: Highway 61 Revisited, Jokerman, All Along The Watchtower, Just Like A Woman, Maggie's Farm, I And I, License To Kill, Tangled Up In Blue, Just My Imagination [Greg Sutton], It's Alright Ma (I'm Only Bleeding), It's All Over Now Baby Blue, Masters Of War, Ballad Of A Thin Man, Man Of Peace, Every Grain Of Sand, Like A Rolling Stone, Don't Think Twice, Girl From The North Country, Lonesome Death Of Hattie Carroll; Tombstone Blues, Blowin' In The Wind [w/Carlos Santana]

DEEP: Similar to other documents of the '84 tour: decent enough quality though not exceptional. It's clear and distinct vocally and instrumentally but a bit thin and tinny, though this can be fleshed out with a bit of the eq. A nice performance, but the '84 shows are all very similar so what's the point, methinks. You may consider picking this one up if you don't own any other '84 tour disks. You won't be disappointed. But, unforgivably, Watchtower dropped "It Ain't Me Babe" and left a Greg Sutton vocal in. Generic cover design.

CDG: An average quality audience recording. The show is nice, but does not stand out from 1984's run of very similar concerts.

NOTE: A complete recording of the concert may be found on the LP transfer The Jokerman Plays Berlin.
