The packaging on this one leaves a little to be desired. It is minimal with a grainy photo on the cover, inadequate venue information, and a poor choice of fonts and color schemes. Perhaps one could wink at the childishly cute name of this release, but the photo of Dylan pointing makes the whole play on words a bit hard to digest.
The recording is another story. It's simply fantastic. To quote Trevor Midgley:
"Yeah, this is a good one. The Main piece is the full 1995 set from The Point, Dublin 1995. Dylan is turning in a vintage performance and has an enthusiastic crowd to play with. The vocal energy really starts to flow in All Along the Watchtower. A powerful Just Like a Woman is followed by Tombstone Blues, with both Dylan and John Jackson warming to their work. The Irish audience sing with him through the gentle and oh-so-affecting Tambourine Man and later, (and more lustily) throughout The Times They Are A-Changin’. Great atmosphere across the board and a real fun feel coming through towards the end of the gig." © 2003 (Dylan : Contraband)  Trevor Midgley
I can't add to this, except to say that it's a wonderfully appreciative Dublin audience that makes Tambourine Man, The Times They are A-Changin' and Boots of Spanish Leather a sheer joy to listen to. This is one of the best of the 1995 recordings.
