DASH-F RATING ON 10-POINT SCALE (based primarily on Cam 1 specs):

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

AVERAGE QUALITY = 8.50 (excludes Distance/Position)
VERDICT: A special show.

VIDEO SOURCES:
Two Hi8 tapes from different angles.
Cam 1 was used for D1094. (main cam for this item)
Cam 2 was used for D1095 with fills from Cam 1. (secondary item for this item)

AUDIO SOURCE:
LB-6225 (D1094 used the lower-rated LB-6223)

DISTANCE/POSITION:
Cam 1: Right balcony 85˙
Good zooming and panning.
Mostly waist and above with tight groupings of players.
Cam 2: Center left balcony 10˙
Mostly focused on Dylan with zooming, but with panning during instrumental breaks

AUDIO:
LB-6225: Excellent. No echo or clipping.

STEADINESS:
Cam 1: Very good. Unsteadiness mostly between songs when camera is lowered and raised.
Cam 2: Very good/excellent.

HEADS/OBSTRUCTIONS:
Cam 1: Mostly unobstructed. Filmer lowered camera between songs.
Cam 2: Very few obstructions.

FOCUS/COLOR/LIGHT/RESOLUTION:
Cam 1: Above average. Mostly in focus w/good color. Resolution compromised on extreme close-ups.
Cam 2: Excellent except on extreme close-ups where resolution suffered a bit.

EDITING:
Clips and stills from Cam 2 were used to fill missing and obstructed parts.
The last three songs on Cam 1 weren't filmed, so Cam 2 was used to fill. The final song on Cam 2 wasn't filmed, so stills were added.

PERFORMANCE/HIGHLIGHTS/SPECIAL MOMENTS:
A dynamic performance with excellent interchange between Dylan, Larry and Bucky, especially evident on cam 1.
The crowd shots are interesting. It's a private affair, so probably not your usual Dylan fans. They seem to be enjoying themselves, though.
