Date: Wednesday, 13th May 1998

This show ranks among the very best of the post-Time Out of Mind, pre-Love and Theft catalogue, 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."

This upgrade was sourced from a newly-available 1st generation tape, and therefore represents an improvement over the previously available D025.su.
