Left balcony 40˙

-used footage from alternate source (MS-293 master mp4) to fill missing songs and parts of
songs on D549
-different title and track menus

-Quite enjoyable. Varied setlist contains songs mostly from the 60s & 70s.
-Dylan in fine, more melodic voice, a contrast to the 1991 style, no doubt influenced by
the band members, especially Baxter, who are on top of their game.
-"Little Moses" and "Trail Of The Buffalo" are tasty treats.
-Dylan rather talkative:
"Thanks everybody! There's a line in that last song about headin' for another joint. It
donít seem like a joint though. It's more like a pub, kind of ..." (after "Tangled Up In

"That's a song trying to say goodbye to somebody who just don't know how ... called Cat's
In The Well."

"Thanks everybody! That last song was a song about trying to say goodbye to somebody.
This one is about trying to say hello to somebody. (before Simple Twist Of Fate).
