Disk author's notes:
1. I tried to select a representative sample of songs played at the three venues. I focused on songs that were filmed completely, or nearly completely, with minimal shakiness or obstruction. Although the Málaga film was over-exposed, it was the only one of the three concerts where "Desolation Row" and "The Times They Are A-Changin'" were played and where "Don't Think Twice" was complete. In the other cases, it was often hard to choose between the Valencia and Zürich concerts except where one or the other had either a unique or complete song.

2. The following songs were played, but are not included because they were severely cut or missing entirely: Friend Of The Devil (Málaga & Valencia); 'Til I Fell In Love With You (Málaga); To Ramona (Málaga); I Shall Be Released (Málaga); Cocaine Blues (Zürich); Make You Feel My Love (Zürich); To Be Alone With You (Zürich)

3. I left in the transition stills to the last song to preserve the intros to the Springsteen guitarists.

Additional screenshots can be found by searching D1013, D1014 and D1015.

Lineage: Songs were extracted from the original sound upgraded iMovie files that were used to create D1013, D1014 and D1015. See DVDylan.com for full details on each.

This 2-disk set is a representative sample of songs played at three venues in April 1999 (Valencia 15-April; Málaga 17-April; Zürich 25-April). The three shows had a similar format with seven acoustic numbers followed by an electric set. The exception in the electric set is an acoustic number before the final song. The focus here is on songs that were filmed completely, or nearly completely, with minimal shakiness or obstruction. Although the Málaga film was over-exposed, it was the only one of the three concerts where "Desolation Row" and "The Times They Are A-Changin'" were played and where "Don't Think Twice" was complete. In the other cases, the choice was between between the Valencia and Zürich concerts except where one or the other had either a unique or complete song. Included is the dynamic version of "Not Fade Away" from the Zürich show where Bruce Springsteen sidemen Little Steven Van Zandt and Nils Lofgren join in the fun. One would be hard-pressed to find a better example of Dylan enjoying himself.

This one gets 5 Stars on performance alone.
