DEEP: No need to hold onto Stadiums of the Damned now, as this set raises the "sound" bar considerably and renders it obsolete. The sound here is smooth and clean, upfront and not at all intrusive, stunning actually. Dylan's vocals are bright, the instruments are crisp and well defined. Dylan's performance is so confident and full of zest that you find yourself shaking your head. Each and every song is played with gusto and the guitars and keyboards provide a full throttle thrust to the proceedings. Dylan is playful, animated and cocksure in his delivery. High marks on this one.

NOTE: The source for this set is often reported to be a Daniel Lanois remix of a Columbia multitrack recording. Two tracks from the concert have been officially released; two have never circulated as line recordings.
