DVDylan ID: D058.su
Recording type: Audience
City/Venue: Peoria, IL, USA/Peoria Civic Center Theater
Date: Wednesday, 13th April 1994

As the screenshots make abundantly clear, the lighting for this show was deficient, at least partly in terms of the camera's capacity to compensate. This is unfortunate because Dylan's performance is energetic, the band is tight, and the crowd enthused, as is also made abundantly clear by the excellent Net Taper A audio that was used for the sound upgrade. (Previous attempts to sound upgrade this item were thwarted by sync problems with other available recordings, so the availability of the NTA audio was indeed fortunate.)

As pointed out in my review of D058, the filmer captured almost all of the show from a mostly steady and unobstructed vantage point, so the use of stills to fill missing or shaky parts is at a minimum. The setlist is fairly standard for the Spring 1994 run, with "Lady Came From Baltimore," "Tears Of Rage," "Simple Twist Of Fate" and "Under The Red Sky" being the exceptions to the usual fare.

While there are better representatives of the Spring 1994 tour (see D297.su, for example), I don't think anyone will be disappointed in this worthy addition to our catalog.
