The fourth night of the residency. A nice performance, the group seem well at home now. The songs of course continue to get longer and longer!

This one gets off to a shaky and obstructed start, with the first 2 and a half songs missing. It remains on the shaky side throughout, but, if you can deal with that, you'll be rewarded with a great performance enhanced with excellent sound. Dylan's singing is terrific, the band is tight, and the crowd enthusiastic. The standout tracks are "Tomorrow Night" and "Jim Jones." The performance of "What Good Am I" is also noteworthy, but the track is unfortunately missing the first 1:56.

All in all, this merits a 3+/4- rating.
