DVDylan ID: D208.msu
Recording type: Audience
City/Venue: London, UK/Hammersmith Apollo
Date: Sunday, 7th February 1993

This sound upgrade is a definite improvement over D208 and D208.m, mainly due to the sterling sound of LB-5882 and the substitution of stills for the shaky/obstructed/missing parts. However, all the editing the editor could muster could not overcome the shaky camera, which often hampers the view. (The cameraman did his best, though, under less than ideal conditions.) The tape problem noted by coops2009 at the end of "Ballad of a Thin Man" was not as evident on the master as on D208, and there was no way to fix it anyway.

All in all, however, we're fortunate to have this representative of the 1993 Hammersmith run, and luckier still to have the sharing spirit of coops2009.
