PERFORMANCE/HIGHLIGHTS/SPECIAL MOMENTS: There are those who take issue with Dylan allowing fans to come up on stage. The disc author is not one of them. This is tamer than the Dubuque show that came two days later (see D045.su2), but has it's share of spirited dancing, particularly by two comely blondes who grace the encores (see images above). Dylan was in great voice and having a ball. The interplay between Dylan, Bucky and Tony on "Tangled Up In Blue" is a special treat. A speaker may have malfunctioned toward the end of "My Back Pages" because Tony reacted and Dylan started looking around.

Improvements over D080.su:
1. better video source w/better color & resolution
2. Contains partial "Just Like Tom Thumb's Blues" missing on D080.su.
3. special effects not used
4. divided into 2 disks for better video quality

DISTANCE/POSITION: 14 (full stage and waist up w/closeups of Dylan; good panning and zooming)

AUDIO: 14 (excellent - no cuts or clipping; some audience chatter during acoustic set)

STEADINESS: 11 (mostly steady but the usual jockeying for position)

HEADS/OBSTRUCTIONS: 11 (obstructions and shaky parts in encore)

EDITING: stills used to fill shaky parts; "Just Like Tom Thumb's Blues" cut ~3 min so stills needed; other songs needed only minor fills.
