Mark Knopfler on songs 2-4; especially good lead on "Things Have Changed"

Sexton's lead throughout, especially cool on "Summer Days"
Quite eerie rendition of "Ballad Of A Thin Man," with effect enhanced by echo

DISTANCE/POSITION: 8-14 (ranged from medium distance to close-ups)
Left balcony 80 degrees (filmer was distant but camera was capable to zoom and capture in low light conditions; camera mostly stayed on Dylan while on piano, but captured others when stage center; far left position blocked Herron, Sexton and Recile, but Garnier and Kimball frequently seen, especially Tony; all seen during encore before break following "Like A Rolling Stone")

AUDIO: 14 (excellent LB-10510) (excellent soomlos recording)

STEADINESS: 13 (camera strayed some during breaks between songs)

HEADS/OBSTRUCTIONS: 13 (minimal distractions)

FOCUS: 12 (rather dark during some songs; focus a bit dull/could be sharper)

EDITING: some end and start off-target parts necessitating stills; one major cut during "Like A Rolling Stone" requiring 52:20 still
