Masters Series 144.msu

8-14/13/9/14/10 (avg. 11.00 B)
Right balcony 40˙

-sourced from video master (D454.su sourced from non-master)
-sound upgraded with excellent LB-4361, very good I.D. Withheld, and fair LB-1059
-missing and defective footage on MS-144 filled with stills chosen to match the
assumed action as closely as possible

-impassioned vocals, with a spitfire “Tangled Up In Blue”
-cool interplay between Dylan & Jackson on “I'll Be Your Baby Tonight”
-sweet harp on “Lady Came From Baltimore” & “Mama, You Been On My Mind”
-chilling “Masters Of War” & “God Knows”
-beautifully sung “Mama, You Been On My Mind”
-popping sound during “Under The Red Sky” sounds like gunshot and seems to startle

DISTANCE/POSITION: 8-14 Right balcony 40˙(good panning and zooming, but mostly centered on Dylan with rare obstructions; camera wanders from time to time)

AUDIO: 13 (B+/A-)
LB-1059: 10 (LB-rating B-: fair)(for clipped start and transition to song 7)
I.D Witheld: (Disc author’s rating is B+/not listed at LB; used for songs 1-6)
LB-4136: 15 (LB-rating A: superb (for songs 7-15)

STEADINESS: 9 (songs 1-6 rather shaky; songs 7-15 steadier)

HEADS/OBSTRUCTIONS: 14 (rarely obstructed)

FOCUS: 10 (red colors grainy and sometimes over=exposed/blue colors sharper; adequate light; soft focus; camera goes in and out of focus occasionally and there are some tracking problems during “Masters Of War”)

EDITING: stills used to fill missing song, parts of songs and defective parts (see setlist details); audio sources edited as needed for a/v sync and to fill missing parts of best audio source (LB-4136)

COOPS2009 NOTES FOR MS-144 (D454.m):
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
