Watching this as I type. The sound is excellent, and the focus/color/resolution is as good as it gets, particularly when viewed on your computer or on an "up-converting" blu ray player. There's a minimum of obstruction and shakiness, which makes this a pleasant watch, with no need of special video effects, except for stills between songs when the camera is either off or hidden from sight.

The cameraman does a fine job of zooming and panning, thus affording close-ups of Dylan and the rest of the band as they take their turns on leads. When Dylan is singing, the camera is mostly centered on him from the waist up with Donny usually in the picture. For any of you guitarists out there, this program provides an excellent opportunity to watch Bob and Charlie's technique. A lot of negativity has been aimed at Dylan's guitar-playing over the years, but I, for one, see him as a master of the instrument.

Regarding the singing/performance, Dylan is fully engaged, and seemingly pleased with the cleverness of his lyrics. Check out "Things Have Changed" to see what I mean.

The disk author, madhasse, has done his usual excellent job of editing and sound upgrading. He tells us that he's "not even shy to call it the best captured/perfomed Bob Dylan show in years!"

Who am I to argue? 5 stars if ever there were stars in the sky.
