Author/filmer's notes follow:

"Video: 4:3 - 720 x 576 [PAL Standard] Audio: Mono [Dolby Digital 1.0]

The DVD is encoded to be region free and should therefore be viewable on every DVD player. Sorry for the audio. Maybe a sound update from the other Dime recording of this show will do, but for now I kept this one because I believe it is actually pretty decent (maybe a bit thin but at least perfectly in sync).

Songs are missing, I found out that my cam was eating the battery a lot faster than expected so I just went for the rarities (except "I Believe in You"). Note also, that the picture is sometimes extremely dark and sometimes extremely light. The lighting was kind of strange this night but I can assure you that it actually was this dark during the more slow and mellow song.

Cam is a bit shaky and there is a head here and there but overall I'd say that it's a quite nice view of the older Bob."

A very good performance captured by very good hands, adding that shooting from the pit can be extremely difficult at times and this ain't comes thru this recording. Camwork settles in no time to present the viewer a very intimate scenery of a Bob Dylan show in 2009.
Although 'I Believe In You' unfortunately ain't got filmed, and the songs we have here are just a few to get the whole picture of a current concert - it is still a great selection - they are indeed manage to testify of an absolutely inspired show with lot of improvisations filmed from the best position possible (to be able to capture such things in good-enough detail). Although the sound is weak, and this ain't no complete thing, performancewise and because of the great handling of the camera, it still makes this an undoubtedly 4 star recording (though that doesn't mean, a soundupgrade is not eagerly wanted). Thanks Matthias!
