This is yet another worthy addition to the catalog made possible by the kindness of Tom P. and raygun. While the video is below average in terms of shakiness, the excellent sound from the "Weekend at Wolf Trap" boot and the animated performance by Dylan make it a very enjoyable DVD. Dylan turns in dynamic performances of "Blind Willie McTell" and "Leopard-Skin Pill-Box Hat," and the acoustic numbers are anchored by a strong "Stone Walls and Steel Bars." The highlight of the show is the appearance of an anonymous young lady sporting a leopard-skin pill-box hat toward the end of the song by that name. Dylan is clearly amused by this, and comments on her performance at the end of the song.

One might argue that the appearance of the leopard-skin pill-box hat girl merits a 'must have' rating of 5, but I'll settle for a "don't you dare miss it" rating of 4+ stars.
