Coop's notes on this 2015 release:

Call it a Christmas present to you, and me. I have many people I could thank but most like to remain silent. I must say thanks to "vodkadog" though without whose help you'd not be getting this.

Seen it before? sure, but NEVER as good as this.
A brief explanation, this pro film circulated at the end of the nineties but due to transfer issues it was several generations poorer than this copy. "Vodkadog" was able to locate the original recordings and get them to me, but time had taken its toll and the sound was damaged. I located a master copy of the audio and have now married the two together digitally. The result is stunning.

This has always been an exhilarating performance to watch, but none of you have ever seen it in all its magnificense, well now you can.

I have seen a lot of Dylan videos over the years. This is easily in the top 5 most impressive I have ever seen, Its a Must have, you miss this then your either daft or dead ! GET IT !!!

JTT's additional notes on this early 2016 release:

Thanks for this Upgrade (The Elite Series 040) go to The Caretaker at EL

Soundtrack though good quality had numerous faults, the worst being a long drop out in one channel.
I replaced that dropout and a couple of other with the opposite channel. Multiple digipops have been removed.

Several poor Video edits have been cleaned and the Disc Change cleaned up.
The only Re-Encoding that occurs in the Video is at the Edit points and Disc Start and Ends.
