From side, close and direct on Dylan. Nicely done.

This one has good sound and focus/light, and Dylan's performance is animated and forceful. The extreme right balcony shot lends an air of intimicacy; however, the obstructions (primarily an audience member to the left of the camera) force the focus to stay mostly on Dylan, with profiles of Fremerman, but no more than rear shots of other band members. The obstructions are few until Hollis Brown, after which things go up and downhill as the audience member feels the need to spring to his dancing shoes.

The show is 83 minutes in length, which makes one wonder why two disks were needed. In addition, the menu is rather cluttered and not particularly easy to navigate.

All in all, however, this one is worth having. Many thanks to those who have made it available.

a nice document of the March 2005 tour. The DVDs have fine sound, and very few video problems. The performance is quite solid.

i want to comment on the camera angle; this is shot from the side stage providing a very interesting head on view of Dylan. the angle affords an unusual perspective on the interplay in the band and the show in general compared to many of the recent shows that circulate widely. watching this i felt like i was close to the 'action', that is, to where Dylan's attention is on stage: with the band and the music.

this is a fun concert and an enjoyable DVD production. Thanks to all involved, and thanks always to
