Another fine job from the hand of the great madhasse! The addition of the Bach audio greatly enhances enjoyment of the program, and the two bonuses, especially the racy "Ballad of a Thin Man" from the Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, October 6, 2010 show, add to the fun. The video quality also appears to be better than D962.ytb, although this might be more an effect of the better audio than any actual improvements in the transfer process.

Another fine performance and great song choice by Dylan. It's clear to me that the Chinese authorities missed quite a few incendiary lines, if they indeed approved the setlist in advance. Had he known that Bob was there to create the new imperial empire, surely Confucius would have risen from his grave in Qufu and returned to gather *HIS* jewels.

Madhasse wànsuì! Xièxie!
