Despite a shakier than average camera, this is an enjoyable watch due largely to the filmer's experienced hand and a superior sound track. Filmed from the high left balcony at 50 , we're looking over Stu and Bob's shoulders, mostly at their profiles. Donny is often in the picture, and his fiddle work on "It's Alright, Ma (I'm Only Bleeding)" and "Floater (Too Much To Ask)" is impressive, as is his banjo picking on "Blind Willie McTell" and "John Brown." George and Denny get their share of attention due to some deft pan and zoom by our intrepid cameraman, with the oft-maligned Denny adding some tasty lead, mostly notable on "Floater" and "Summer Days."

As for the performance, Bob's delivery is forceful and the setlist is well-balanced. The stand outs in my opinion are "John Brown" and "Masters Of War", a YouTube video of which can be seen here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sIRsRQL_LGo

I can't quite go to 5 Stars on this one, so 4+ will have to suffice.
