AUDIO: 10
STEADINESS: 9
HEADS/OBSTRUCTIONS: 10
FOCUS: 9

AVERAGE QUALITY = 38/40 9.50 (excludes Distance/Position)
VERDICT: Excellent

VIDEO SOURCES:
Two Hi8 tapes from different angles.

AUDIO SOURCES:
LB-6225
LB-6223

DISTANCE/POSITION:
D1095: Center balcony 85˙
Mostly focused on Dylan with zooming, but with panning during instrumental breaks
D1094: Right balcony 85˙
Good zooming and panning.
Mostly waist and above with tight groupings of players.

AUDIO:
LB-6225: Excellent
LB-6223: Very good/excellent recording. Runs slower than the video soundtrack so speed correction was necessary for D1094. Not needed for D1095 because used only for missing songs where stills are used.

STEADINESS:
D1095: Very good/excellent.
D1094:: Above average. Unsteadiness mostly between songs when camera is lowered and raised.

HEADS/OBSTRUCTIONS:
D1095: Excellent.
D1094: Mostly unobstructed. Filmer lowered camera between songs.

FOCUS/COLOR/LIGHT/RESOLUTION:
D1095: Excellent except on extreme close-ups where resolution suffered a bit.
D1094: Above average. Mostly in focus w/good color. Resolution compromised on extreme close-ups.

EDITING:
Stills and D1094 source were used to fill missing and obstructed parts.
The last song wasn't filmed so all stills.

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