EDITING:
Neither show is complete, and there are many obstructed/missing parts, so more than the usual amount of fill was necessary.

PERFORMANCE/HIGHLIGHTS/SPECIAL MOMENTS:
The crowd shots are interesting. Crowd roars when Dylan sings the line about the winds of Chicago. Nice acoustic set on Disc 1, and fine, mostly intact performance of "Simple Twist of Fate" on Disc 2.
