DVDylan ID: D1032.su
Recording type: Audience
City/Venue: London, England, UK/HMV Hammersmith Apollo
Date: Sunday, 20th November 2011


This item is sourced from a different camera than D1011 (Mr. Stealth/MH) and D1017 (soomlos). Thus, we have three cameras to choose from, but this one is the most complete. D1032.su contains the first eight songs and part of the ninth, at which point taping was halted. What was captured is mostly excellent high definition quality, although the left balcony vantage point means that the lip of the stage interfered with the filmer's ability to capture full stage shots or to get very much of Stu and George. In a sense, however, this is fortunate because what we see are mostly waist-up shots along with some extreme close-ups of Dylan.

The performances are quite satisfying, and the first four songs are graced by the participation of Mark Knopfler, who showcases his unique finger-picking style on lead guitar. My favorites are "Baby Blue" and "Blind Willie McTell," but you can be your own judge. (see "Baby Blue" here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qv_yE … e=youtu.be)

The audio upgrade is the same excellent romeo recording (LB-9751) as MH used for D1011, an A+ to my ears.

All in all, D1032.su is another must-have for fans of Bob @70. I'm actually starting to like his current vocal stylings, though I may be too far gone to be a reliable judge.

5 Stars.
