Some songs are cut at the beginning or end. Very good show - highly recommended.
Seems to be off-master. Quite dark, sometimes shaky but still very enjoyable. Quite good mono sound.
Screen shot is from transfer and authoring job done in 2009.

This is a pretty good video recording which has one problem for which no one is to blame but Dylan - the abysmal light on stage, which only strong Rembrandt fans might enjoy. Everything is quite dark throughout, even the spot lights (into which Dylan only reluctantly and not that often steps) seem somewhat dimmed. The taper sadly doesn´t have a tripod, so that it´s all a somewhat shaky affair. The show itself, while being quite rough, is on a very high energy level. Dylan presents the audience with an extended and challenging set on this last of six magnificent nights in London in February 1990, and gives what was pretty much his best then (at least I´d say so). Highlights include a superb "Long Black Coat" and a rare and joyful "You Angel You", while the most remarkable performance most likely is "Disease of Conceit" which he plays at the piano (while standing) and during which the audience is so silent that one could hear a needle drop.
