NOTE: This set appears to have been issued under two slightly different versions of its cover slips; one version features an incomplete tracklist.

DEEP: Not since (bathed in a stream of) PURE HEAT have more uniquely sublime Dylan performances been gathered together in one place. The quality is stunning, to say the least; crystal clear, upfront sound, every quirk and rasp of those glorious pipes ringing true in all their raging glory, every pluck, strum, bash and cymbal hit burning through with astounding clarity, and even some sorely missed harp thrown in for good measure. Perhaps the ultimate live collection to date. Includes the usual, classy full color, multi-page booklets and gorgeous photos.

rmd: While the Globe concert is magnificent in every respect, the filler tracks are less reliable, both in performance and in sound. Overall, though, I've never heard a better field recording.(AD)
