This is yet another enjoyable show made possible by the willingness of the intrepid filmer to share his master and of coops2009 to upload it to the HungerCity tracker.

The show appears to start during the early evening because the image gets more grainy and the color less sharp as the show proceeds, thus indicating limitations of the camera to handle low light and spotlight situations. However, the filmer does a good job keeping the camera steady, and there are few instances of heads or bodies blocking the view from his seat on the left side of the Théatre Antique de Fourvière, an ancient Roman theater built in 15 BC.

Dylan's performance is quite strong, with "Jokerman" being my favorite. The players, except for J.J. Jackson, are well within view. This is unfortunate because J.J. lays down some terrific guitar licks, especially on "Maggie's Farm" and "God Knows".

The sub-title, "Les Hommes Joker Voir Bobby", refers to the "Jokermen" clip that has been added as a bonus. I'm not sure who these gentlemen are, although I have my suspicions about one of them, but it's clear from their accents that they and the filmer are visitors from across the English Channel.

What we have here, then, is not quite a "must-have", but certainly a disk that will often enough, as Little Richard puts it, make your big toe shoot up in your boot.
