the only time in the Hammersmith run
-extended endings on some songs, e.g., “Simple Twist Of Fate” and “I And I”
-impassioned vocals on “Shooting Star,” “I And I” and “What Good Am I”
-sinewy and slinky take on “It Takes A Lot To Laugh, It Takes A Train To Cry”
-a fine performance of “It Ain’t Me, Babe” with exquisite tremolo mandolin work by
-Garnier’s bass work, quite prominent on “Don’t Think Twice, It’s All Right”
-“I And I” highlighted by Watson’s intense drumming and Dylan’s wailing vocal

pedal steel on “What Good Am I”

DISTANCE/POSITION: 8-15 (10˙ left center balcony)(effective panning and zooming)

AUDIO: 15 (excellent LTA/LB-5923 recording)

STEADINESS: 11 (sometimes jittery, but impressive control for a hand-held cam)

HEADS/OBSTRUCTIONS: 10 (audience obstructions, but mostly quite good)

FOCUS: 12 (excellent color and adequate light; mostly good focus, but grainy on extreme close-ups)

EDITING: stills used for missing songs and parts; one stretch during “Highway 61 Revisited” was repeated and was cut; vertical control issue and distracting special effects left mostly untouched; brief cuts had to added before and during some songs to maintain a/v sync; (see setlist details)

cut before encore
I did not harm the sound of the recording in any way
bittorrent download 04/08; excellent sound [A]
small discontinuity pops on right channel d2t5 4:11, 4:22, 4:28, 4:38, 4:44 plus more like this on d2t5 to d2t7

Sixth, final night of his third and final residency (so far) at Hammersmith. Bob clearly wants to play though and seems reluctant to finish many of the songs.
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
