Very nice, "dynamically" filmed (viewer feels like s/he is in the small club atmosphere)
Sound upgraded with LB-0889 (A-)

This was my first Dylan live recording I watched and it definitely was worth it. I am a big fan of Dylan's performances from 1998 on audio and this performance is definitely one of the highlights of the year. The video quality is very nice and the audio upgrade is pretty solid. I would recommend this to any Bob fan

This show ranks among the very best of the post-Time Out of Mind, pre-Love and Theft catalog, and we are fortunate that excellent video and audio sources were available for use in the production of this DVD. It features a rare "Not Fade Away" in the opening slot. Dylan had won the 1998 Album of the Year Grammy for Time Out Of Mind earlier that year, and had mentioned the influence of Buddy Holly on his own career in his acceptance speech. He was 17 years old and had seen Buddy at the Duluth National Guard Armory on January 31, 1959, just three days before the plane crash that took his life. "I was three feet away," Dylan said, "and he looked at me." The use of stills of Buddy on the title menu and in the slide show to fill the clipped video on "Not Fade Away" are meant to highlight that influence, giving us the opportunity to have Buddy "look at us all" while we watch Dylan dramatically salute a seminal song and a major rock pioneer.
