-great harp on several songs, specially on “I Want You” and “It Ain’t Me,
-rocking “Tangled Up In Blue” highlighted by Watson’s intense drumming
-tender, heart-felt vocal and harp on “Mr. Tambourine Man”
-Baxter unseen but excellent dobro on “Mr. Tambourine Man”
-Dylan compliments Jackson’s acoustic picking on “Mr. Tambourine Man,” with
good reason, and also compliments him again in the band intros
-Dylan tells audience after the band intros that: “We’re getting out of here
right now. We got places to be, things to do.”
-Baxter excellent mandolin on “Boots Of Spanish Leather” (unseen except on
still] and on “Mama, You Been On My Mind”

starting to play “Don’t Think Twice, It’s All Right

-spooky “Man In The Long Black Coat”

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

I did not harm the sound of the recording in any way
then this; LB-6256 has the warmest sound
