The greatest show on earth! I think it was Paul Williams who once described the Hard Rain album as more punk than the stuff that was passing itself off as punk at this time. I agree with this sentiment wholeheartedly and think it also applies to the TV Special on this disc. Dylan is in fine voice and gives it everything he's got (watch his facial expressions) and the band absolutely cook. Though the picture and sound on this release are very good, I think the Japanese Hard Rain is a superior product. Having said that, don't let me deter you from getting this as it includes the Unreleased Hard Rain TV Special, which is wonderful as well. This show in any form is a must-have for every fan of the great man.

I had this one on vcd in not so good quality, thanks to Vygi I can enjoy this one now in DVD-quality!
I guess pretty everything is said about it in the other reviews. The only thing I can add is that even my wife enjoys this one! No other coment needed if that's the case.
Two remarks though about the copy I got: it seems to be in black & white and the clearwater part isn't on the disc. Is there anybody with the same problem, or am I doing something wrong?
