I watched this last night and enjoyed it very much. It's worth it for the excellent Bach audio alone, but the panning and zooming is about as good as it gets for stealth video. As for the performance, WOW!! It just doesn't get any better! Dylan is focused and engaged, clearly enjoying himself, singing as if he'd just written the classic 60s songs, and singing the newer ones like his life depended on it. As enjoyable as some of the recent shows have been, there's something about those late-90s and early 2000 shows that merits a higher category.

I go back and forth between Larry and Charlie as to who the better lead man is, but here, with Charlie not yet a member of the band, Larry has the gig all to himself, and, boy, does he deliver! You can tell that Tony knows. Just look at that smile!

5 quasars for this one.
