Picture is almost perfect, very steady and close. Sound is good, too. There are two authored copies of this show. The one shown in the screenshots was authored by Vygi, the other by an anonymous author. The anonymous author used a blue screen disk as the source. The whereabouts of the blue screen disk and the tape that it was sourced from is unclear.

Looked at with 2007 eyes and listened to with 2007 ears, this DVD, while worth owning, should be considered as a candidate for upgrading. The sound is no better than average (excellent alternate audio sources are available), while the obstructed, shaky, and missing songs could benefit greatly by editing and in-filling. 4 stars.

This is one of the best DVDs I have ever seen. Every song is performed strongly and the whole band, especially Freddy, is on fire. The taper seamlessly pans between Bob, George, Tony, and the 2 guitar players. IMO the highlights are Highway 61 Revisited (in which Larry successfully tries to copy Freddy's style for a bit), Desolation Row, The Wicked Messenger (wonderful interplay between the 2 guitarists during the instrumental breaks), and a breathtaking version of Like a Rolling Stone in which Freddy absolutely NAILS the climax of the solo (which all Freddy-doubters should listen to).
