Improvements over D379
-used alternate audio source for better sound
-video sourced from mini-dv tapes with better resolution
-divided into 2 discs for higher bitrate
-1st song is intact except for brief clip

-Bob's corny joke during band intros - He and Kemper were singling "Car-Tunes"
-Bob & Paul duets
-Bob's harp on "The Sound Of Silence"
-Bob & Paul incorporating "I Hear You Knockin' But Uou Can't Come In" on "Knockin' On Heaven's Door"
-Larry's fiddle on "Blue Moon Of Kentucky"

DISTANCE/POSITION: 15 (Shot of monitor is mostly on Dylan, waist up. Few shots of other players; Charlie barely seen. Filmer shot stage for part of "Just Like A Woman" and "Blue Moon Of Kentucky" and possibly elsewhere)

AUDIO: 14 (used audio from video soundtrack to fill beginning and part of 1st song that were cut on upgrade source/occasional static; upgrade source ran slow so speed increased 16.5%)

STEADINESS: 15 (Shot of monitor is tripod steady)

HEADS/OBSTRUCTIONS: 14 (Audience members occasionally pass in front of filmer, mostly between songs, and more so at end of Dylan's solo set; in-house cam un-obstructed)

FOCUS: 10 (Shot of monitor makes for a rather dull, hazy, colorless image, but improves when better lit. Quite dark venue and distance challenged camera's lens)

EDITING: Audio upgrade source missed beginning of first song and introduction, so audio was extracted from the video soundtrack, and a still was used to fill the missing video. Removed frames as needed to maintain a/v sync.

LB notes for LB-7488
62 min/30 min
Rating: A-
BOOTLEG: Hot & Humid Night; Bob Dylan was the opening act for Paul Simon, whose set is included, Bootleg: Hot & Humid Night (3 CDs), *** No LB-listing ***, NOTE: Does not have the "d1t11 has begin of d2t1 which then repeats itself on d2t1" flaw listed in LB-1711, neither is there background talking on d1t3, Unidentified taper, Source/Lineage: no info, Very good sound; levels a tad high on the loud songs, Spectrum analysis: well above 20kHz; bittorrent download 05/09; only dylan portion; different recording than LB-1771 based on different crowd at end of d1t3; in comparison that has a fuller warmer sound; (did not listen to all of this)
drop beginning and end of d1t9, between cdrs, beginning of d2t4; has discontinuities between tracks
