DISTANCE/POSITION: 10
AUDIO: 9
STEADINESS: 8
HEADS/OBSTRUCTIONS: 8
FOCUS: 8

AVERAGE QUALITY = 8.25 (excludes Distance/Position)
VERDICT: Well worth your time.

VIDEO SOURCE:
Hi8 tape

AUDIO SOURCE:
LB-6223

DISTANCE/POSITION:
Extreme right balcony 85˙
Good zooming and panning.
Mostly waist and above with tight groupings of players.

AUDIO:
Very good/excellent recording. Runs slower than the video soundtrack so speed correction was necessary for this project.

STEADINESS:
Above average. Unsteadiness mostly between songs when camera is lowered and raised.

HEADS/OBSTRUCTIONS:
Mostly unobstructed.
Filmer lowered camera between songs.

FOCUS/COLOR/LIGHT/RESOLUTION:
Above average.
Mostly in focus w/good color.
Resolution compromised on extreme close-ups.

EDITING:
Speed correction was needed to sync the upgrade source up to the video. In addition, periodic 10-20 frame cuts were made to achieve a/v sync.
Stills were used to fill missing and obstructed parts.
The last three songs weren't filmed and were added as audio-only menu items.

PERFORMANCE/HIGHLIGHTS/SPECIAL MOMENTS:
A dynamic performance with excellent interchange between Dylan, Larry and Bucky.
The crowd shots are interesting. It's a private affair, so probably not your usual Dylan fans. They seem to be enjoying themselves, though.
