Although the 2000 tour is generally regarded as one of Bob's better ones I must admit it has never been one of my favourites. However if you if you have a paticular fondness for Dylan circa 2000 this dvd seems to be an ok document of an ok gig - the nicest moment being the audiences delighted response to the live premiere of 'If Dogs Run Free'.

Picture is clear and mainly steady, if a little distant. Audio is very good. Bob's peformance seems par for the course for 2000 although I think the earlier gigs from this tour are a little fresher.

The biggest mystery though is if Bob notes the audiences delight at the debut of 'If Dogs..' and he does seem to, then why the hell doesn't he debut rarely heard material more often??!! Although the lyrics are fluffed it's just nice to see Bob and the band enjoying playing something 'new...for them anyway..'(to quote D214.su)

That aside I find the rest of the gig relatively average,'Standing In The Doorway' and 'Dignity' being noticebly tune free ('Dignity especially, when compared to the great versions from earlier in the year) however the inclusion of 'If Dogs..' means it is probably worth obtaining a copy...

Have always loved the audio and the sound upgrade sounds fantastic to me. I love it because Bob's in form. The first 8 songs or so are as good as it gets. John Brown and Visions are the best performances of these songs that I know of. One Too Many Mornings finds Bob finding a new groove/riff to the song on his guitar and then exploiting it fully on harmonica.Standing in the Doorway and the first appearance of If Dogs Run Free are further highlights I reckon the video is alright and Bob is full of 'natty' little moves to keep us watching. Special thanks to Vygi for allowing me the opportunity to watch and review!
