DVD was edited to include still shots at beginning of some songs where video is missing.

Faded color, a few clips and cuts, one missing song (Blowin' In The Wind at the end), but otherwise intact (includes Simon/Dylan duets). Average sound.
There is apparently a third version of this disk floating around. It appears that someone made a standalone copy of the authored disk and left off the menus. The menus, of course, would not work anyway unless it was properly burned on a computer.

I am giving this disc only two stars based on the quality of the audio/video not on the performance. The performance was good, I would say about average if not better. Some good covers, Not Fade Away and I Walk The Line come to mind, as well as the duet with Paul Simon. But, all of those can be found in better quality from other concerts. But anyway back to the actually footage. The camera is quite still throughout although it is focused on the big screen which you may or may not prefer. The video is faded and blurry and the audio is muffled throughout. Overall I enjoyed the concert, any concert is great in my opinion. However I do not think in merits a second viewing.
