Wonderfull stuff. The video and audio quality is very good releated at this period. The performance is astounding, one of the best concert I ever seen. Memphis blues, ballad of a thin man and Gotta serve somebody are the highlights. For the 1988 fans this is a "must have".

I'm positively impressed by this DVD. Considering that it's just a random 1988 audience video, it's quite good. The video is pretty distant, but the focus is good, it's uninterrupted, and the audio is also better than I would have suspected. The capture is also excellent-- this looks like it's from the master. Menus for individual songs would've been nice, but I won't look the 1988 gifthorse in the mouth. All in all, pretty darn good.
