I like this as a handy compilation. However I do have reservations. For a start the tracklisting on the cover is not accurate, mild annoyance if you are forced to buy it sealed. Also there is no track skip in "play all", mode again mildly inconvenient as are the rather sloppy transitions between tracks and sections.

Over all the picture and sound quality is very good with one or two exceptions: Sound is poor in Washington (understanable)and Johnny Cash (less understandable. The picture quality on the Cash sections is slightly better elsewhere. But this is still eminently watchable.

The highlights: The 66 stuff - always fab; Bangaladesh concert - wonderful. Despite the shortcomings,I'm glad I bought it.
