What I particularly like about this concert is the prominent lead guitar role played by Stu Kimball. He had taken over for one of my favorite Dylan lead players, Freddy Koella, and one wonders why he was eventually relegated to rhythm playing when Denny Freeman took over the lead role in 2005 and beyond.

The filmer of D459 did a stellar job of panning and zooming, staying mostly focused on Bob, but swinging over to the others when their lead turns came. This is particularly effective on Larry's work on the cittern for songs 5, 9, and 15.

The camera for D427, while jittery, provided a more straight-on view of Bob and was invaluable in filling the missing "Stuck Inside Of Mobile" and patches for other missing or shaky parts of D459.
