LB-notes for LB-9165:
BOOTLEG: Then Came The Warning (Thinman 143/144)
Factory Silvers>Ripped with XLD>flac
bittorrent download 02/11; same recording as LB-0829 based on same clapping wavs on d1t1 with similar wav and spectral view except levels are higher on this and it looks like this has an attempt to lessen the drops between tracks

A two-camera sound upgrade was originally envisioned for this project, but the lack of a mint or 1st generation source for D037, and the difference in video formats (D981 is PAL/D037 is NTSC), made such a project questionable due to the need for transcoding

So, here we have the first 10 songs, edited to cover clips and cuts (mostly between songs), sound upgraded with the same superior audio source (LB-9165) that was used by the Watchtower author of D037.sse. That upgrade was remarkable for the fact that there were three audio tracks. Alas, the author of lacked the expertise and software to achieve such a feat, but I believe you will find the sound quite acceptable, nonetheless.

Dylan's singing and performance are strong, as is true for most of the concerts of the 2002 N.E.T. tour. "In the Summertime" is the tastiest treat from my point of view. Tied for second are the beautifully-sung "The End Of The Innocence" and the rollicking "Brown Sugar."

The image tends to be a bit dark, and the relatively shaky camera and obstructed view all add up to a "4+ star" rating for this one.
