DEEP: An excellent sounding, well balanced field recording with a nice, warm vibe to it. Clear separation and distinct instrumentation blend together for a perfect mix. Dylan's performances are full of depth and his unique phrasing and vocal inflections are in full bloom. The band is really into it, each track moving seamlessly into the next. The filler tracks keep the level high; this is a set deserving of high praise.

ISIS: Superb quality, well balanced with a warm natural feel. The vocals are defined, and the instrumentation is separated without feeling artificially isolated. Dylan's vocals are confident, warm, mellow. He explores the lyrics with new tenderness. The band meld together seamlessly, at one with each other and the music, supportive and inventive but unobtrusive. A superb disc - warm and soothing.

rmd: The sound and performances are absolutely faultless -- Dylan and his band on top form, and the filler's great too. The packaging, inexplicably using mid-70's pictures, is the only aspect of this set that should be faulted.
