Center balcony

-sound upgraded
-filled off-target parts & cuts with stills
-different title & track menus

-great, varied setlist with Dylan in fine spirits

provided by Garnier and Keltner
-a lean and mean “Cry A While”
-crowd takes over singing chorus of “Hard Rain” when Dylan’s mic fails
-terrific harp on several songs, especially on “mama, You Been On My mind”
-fine acoustic playing by Campbell, especially the tremolo technique on “Don’t Think
Twice, It’s All Right” and the picking on “Boots Of Spanish Leather”
-“Not Fade Away” a blast with a cool ending
-inspirational back-up vocals by Campbell & Sexton on “Forever Young” & “Blowin’ In
The Wind”
-Campbell’s slide on “Honest With Me” a clinic
-Sexton shines on “Highway 61 Revisited”
-is that a James Brown statuette shown toward the end of “Highway 61 Revisited”?

DISTANCE/POSITION: 9-14 (Center balcony about 7 rows) (tough position behind bodies and the railing, so filmer had to use zoom to frame players between bodies and the rail, so very limited panning; Campbell seen frequently, others not as much; great closeups especially of Dylan & Campbell’s guitar work)

AUDIO: 15 (excellent NTE recording, LB-1491; some audience chatter during quieter songs; audio also had some applause cuts between songs that had to be matched by video cuts)

STEADINESS: 10 (frequently unsteady because filmer had to deal with obstructions)

HEADS/OBSTRUCTIONS: 9 (bodies and rail get in the way forcing frequent zoom ins and outs)

FOCUS: 14 (color good but distance was probably beyond capacity of camera to achieve a sharp image, so focus rather grainy; focus often had to re-adjust due to obstructions; bright lights wash out color on “Like A Rolling Stone” choruses)

EDITING: filled cuts & unfocused parts with stills; audio cuts had to matched by video cuts before several songs (see setlist details)

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.

In 3-way comparison these are different recordings based on having different crowd at end of d1t4 with this being the warmest most natural sound making LB-253 sound harsh and hollow and cc LB-845 sound harsh; excellent sound [A].
