Left balcony 10˙
95 mins

-sound upgraded
-filled missing and obstructed parts with stills
-different top and track menus

-Elvis Costello joins Bob on “I Shall Be Released”
-“God Knows” and “I Believe In You” give this show a distinctively spiritual
-Jackson false starts “I Don’t Believe You” but Dylan sings “I Believe In
You” (Was Bob trying to tell JJ something?)
-a dream setlist, and one that diverged radically from the posted
playlist, hence the name of the bootleg (eight songs were not on the
playlist, and three songs were new for the tour)
-another tender & moving acoustic set highlighted by Jackson’s acoustic
guitar & Baxter’s mandolin & dobro
-Dylan sings several songs sans guitar center stage
-Dylan puts the military industrial complex on notice with a menacing harp on
“Masters Of War”
-engine room well-manned by Watson & Garnier, as usual

DISTANCE/POSITION: 8-15 (left balcony 10˙) (filmer had a rather poor position in left balcony shooting between bodies sitting and passing in front; but filmer managed to stay focused on Dylan for the most part with several pans above to Watson, a few left to Jackson and right to Garnier and Baxter)

AUDIO: 15 (excellent “F*** The Playlist” bootleg; audio had cuts between songs that had to be accounted for)

STEADINESS: 8 (shaky due to restricted window available between bodies)

HEADS/OBSTRUCTIONS: 8 (bodies sitting and passing in front)

FOCUS: 12 (very good color/light; focus somewhat grainy, particularly on close-ups\)

EDITING: editor filled missing and obstructed parts with stills; audio had applause cuts between encore songs that required cuts in video and stills for a/v sync (see setlist details)

Bucky Baxter (pedal steel guitar, electric slide guitar, dobro, mandolin)

Second and another great show well worth a look God! he had some energy in those days. Remember even if you have some of the Daves films already that at best your copies
will be 2 generations poorer than anything in the Masters series, so get em all.
These will be with original sound though many will feature as sound upgrades eventually with my two mates Yassou and Madhasse helping out.

LB NOTES FOR LB-5784 (no notes for alternative rip from silvers of “F*** The Playlist”):
Lots of compression and some clipping; the 3/29 filler on this plus the filler on bootleg 3/31/95 bobs full house LB-5785 by same manufacturer make an incomplete 3/29 show; both bootlegs 3/29 filler have similar spectral view in that most is below 17k except a little noise and are probably same recording source based on that and same bootleg manufacturer and as with the 3/30 and 3/31 bootlegs, the 3/29 portion does not seem to circulate except derived from these bootleg cds
drop/cut between cdrs, end of d2t3.

ADDITIONAL LB NOTES FOR LB-5783 and LB-5961: in 3-way comparison … this has a harsher less full sound; LB-1866 has the warmest sound; bootleg "F*** the Playlist" (LB-5784) is a little harsher than LB-1866 but has more upfront sound on the vocals so liked it best

ADDITIONAL LB NOTES FOR LB-6250: bittorrent download 07/08; in 5-way comparison these are different recordings based on different crowd at end of d1t3; local taper UK: A, LB-5961 is the warmest, then this, then LB-1866, then bootleg "F the Playlist" LB-5784, then bach LB-5783; local taper UK: A, LB-5961 may have a little too much bass; excellent sound [A]
