DIFFERENCES FROM D549.su:
-used footage from alternate source (MS-293 master mp4) to fill missing songs and parts of
songs on D549
-different title and track menus

PERFORMANCE/HIGHLIGHTS/SPECIAL MOMENTS:
-Quite enjoyable. Varied setlist contains songs mostly from the 60s & 70s.
-Dylan in fine, more melodic voice, a contrast to the 1991 style, no doubt influenced by
the band members, especially Baxter, who are on top of their game.
-"Little Moses" and "Trail Of The Buffalo" are tasty treats.
-Dylan rather talkative:
"Thanks everybody! There's a line in that last song about headin' for another joint. It
donít seem like a joint though. It's more like a pub, kind of ..." (after "Tangled Up In
Blue")

"That's a song trying to say goodbye to somebody who just don't know how ... called Cat's
In The Well."

"Thanks everybody! That last song was a song about trying to say goodbye to somebody.
This one is about trying to say hello to somebody. (before Simple Twist Of Fate).


DISTANCE/POSITION: 12: Left balcony 40˙ (virtually unobstructed position allowed for panning and zooming) (MS-293 left balcony 10˙)

AUDIO: 15: (excellent mix w/Dylan's voice prominent and well-balanced instruments; a/v sync problem with the first song and part of the second song)

STEADINESS: 12 (mostly steady w/camera sometimes off-target on the vertical plane)

HEADS/OBSTRUCTIONS: 14 (virtually unobstructed)

FOCUS: 12 (excellent color, adequate light, and good focus except when zoom employed)

EDITING: stills employed to fill missing parts of the first three songs and the missing final song
