A very good, upfront and powerful recording. The sound can be a bit muddled here and there, but overall it's quite nice and very listenable. The performance is also very good throughout, although the 'sing-song' voice is in evidence at many points. This tour was destined to be overshadowed by the fantastic Fall 2002 shows which followed, and perhaps in retrospect, the 
particular leg of the touring year represented by this disc seems a little 'average' in comparison. Nice performances throughout, although nothing really remarkable. The 'bonus' tracks are in awful quality, and aren't much of a bonus at all, it would've been better if the label had picked something more interesting and in better sound quality as fillers. Packaging is the usual 'Tambourine Man' minimal but smart and the title is a bit odd. A good, but by no means essential release.
