This was a great tour, featuring long sets and the one two punch of CS and LC on backing vocals as well as guitars. This night finds everyone well up to snuff, and Dylan's deliveries are solid and enthusiastic. Dylan boogies, highsteps and marches through the set, missing barely a word.
As noted, the video is not off master. the focus is never quite sharp, but good enough to make it clear that the SU is excellently executed. Colors are not bad, pretty life like. The video suffers from some slight pixelation (is that the word) at a few points. The angle from far stage left allows us to observe the entire band most of the time which is quite entertaining . The film is entirely unobstructed and overall easy on the eye.
The audio source and upgrade are absolutely top notch.
Personal highlights included a loose, swinging Serve Somebody and solid rockin Tom Thumbs, both with Dylan on Guitar solo. and of course Heaven's Door with the extra chord change, alternate lyrics, and backing vocals section of hundreds...One Too Many Mornings closer?!..
this set certainly will bear repeated viewing. My thanks and congratulations to the filmer, taper, and author.
