There was also an incomplete performance of Queen Jane that is not included on this disc. The entire package is printed in black and white. Of course, this was done to save money, but it does add a certain charm. The disc is full printed with info & titles. There were only 325 hand numbered copies of this release. Because of the low number, and cross over appeal with Grateful Dead fans, this title is a little more rare than most.© 2001 CD Pinkerton Bobsboots.com

Review: by Gordon Darroch
Although the packaging for this set is minimal... the front cover is nice (even though Garcia looks like an aged Grizzly Adams!) Trepidation strikes as the music starts (as I have never completely listened to dylan and the Dead, the official release). Tangled up in blue starts with a little hesitation before building into the full arrangement. Dylan's voice is full and up front, although this was the start of the wear and tear starting to show through. And so sets the scene for the whole show. Dylan's singing changes from song to song, some fumbling with lyrics but overall this show works for me. The liner notes say Dylan shouted out the lyrics... but I don't agree. The venom from the 74 tour isn't there, and the frenzy of the GE Smith era has yet to come. Great to hear Judas Priest, the reason for buying the CD,  and Wicked Messenger. The Dead backing is full, and seems to fit - I don't know their albums so I cannot comment or compare. Overall the sound quality is fine and clear. Maybe I have adapted over the years, the changing voice, and styles... (or perhaps it's that I have seen Dylan when he was much worse) but this is one to listen to now and again.
