This is another great show from the February 1993 Hammersmith run, and the excellent audio used for the sound upgrade makes it well worth seeking out. Dylan gives a fiery performance, and the set list contains several gems, my favorites being "It Takes A Lot To Laugh, It Takes A Train To Cry" and "Shooting Star." The guest appearance by Dave Stuart on "Highway 61" is another highlight with Bob and Dave having great, good fun.

That said, there are some negatives. The first and final three songs are missing, thus necessitating the use of stills to provide a full program. In addition, the source video for the sound upgrade (D956) is a notch below some of the other master sources made available in winter/spring 2011. The focus moves in and out in places, and the color is often over-saturated, particularly in the electric sets when the spotlights are bright.

All said, however, we are fortunate to have had the efforts of the videographer and coops2011 in filming and releasing a semi-precious jewel in Dylan's crown.
