Thanks are due to geetarz for D848, to geetarz and APlay for the remastered audio, and to Jim50's wife for her helpful review and inspiration to produce this project. Unfortunately, this review has been removed from DVDylan by the reviewer.

The primary video source is D848, with D370 used to fill shaky/missing/obstructed parts, and a mint VHS tape of the VH-1 broadcast used for the bonus songs. The audio is sourced from a remastered audio for all audience-sourced video and from the mint VHS tape for the bonus versions of songs 1 and 6.
D848 shot from right balcony 10 degrees. More distant, but better focused than D370.
D370 shot from left balcony 60 degrees. Closer and more steady than D848, but not as colorful and well-focused.
Audio for the sound upgraded audience-shot video is from APlay's DAT masters.
The DASH-F rating is an average of the two audience sources.

Still one of my favorite Dylan pro shot videos - highly recommended!
