Recording type: Audience
City/Venue: Bielefeld, Germany/Stadthalle
Date: Thursday, 16th March 1995

NOTE: It's tempting to give this a '5' based on the tremendous performance, which is on a par with the other great performances of the March 1995 European Tour. However, the technical glitches, shakiness and obstructions bring it down a notch.

12/14/9/9/11 (avg. 10.75 B]
Left balcony 30˙

-Dylan humming @~2:52 during instrumental break of "Crash On The Levee"
-excellent harp on several songs, especially "Crash On The Levee," Just Like A Woman" and "Positively 4th Street"
-slowed-down delivery of the famous last couplet of "Positively 4th Street"
-tender readings of "Mr. Tambourine Man" and "Boots Of Spanish Leather" w/tasty slide work
by BB and acoustic guitar by JJ.
-"Here's a new song we got out." - "Dignity"

DISTANCE/POSITION: 12 (the filmer had to shoot between the crowd in front, but did a yeoman's job maintaining focus on Dylan w/effective zooms to Bob and pans to band members when feasible)

AUDIO: 14 (excellent audio source; crisp vocals and good balance)

STEADINESS: 9 (often shaky, but plenty of steady stretches)

HEADS/OBSTRUCTIONS: 9 (obstructions were often evident, but plenty of unobstructed stretches)

FOCUS: 11 (focus and color were generally good)

EDITING: The shot was often obstructed and shaky and the source DVD had some technical glitches, but the author avoided adding fills except for extended problems or a/v sync issues.
