CC's notes on this release:

This was only the second attempt by CJ Ghost and certainly a terrific film.
The sound on this one has been replaced with a digital copy of lossless Bob LB-1872
Use of JC audio was considered but as the only located copy is incomplete and would have meant a noticeable change in quality between recordings it was felt that LB-1872 was the best option.

Remember these projects were usually dual efforts with one party doing audios and the other, CJGhost doing video.

Thanks again to The Restoration Team and Yassou for his invaluable input

Quite entertaining, and a special treat to have a DVD of this audio and video quality from the 1989 Beacon Theatre run. The filmer kept the focus on Dylan with occasional views of the other players. The sound is rich with Dylan's inspired vocals front and center. Highlights are "Precious Memories" and "Song To Woody."
