Review:  by:  Keith Schweiger
This title is a re-issue of Capricorn's 1995 release. Re-issues are fine, and can be very welcome... especially to those who might have missed the first go-around batch.  However, they need to meet a certain criteria, and should ultimately be held to a higher standard in respect to packaging and / or sound quality. The latter, obviously, can be a difficult and often times impossible undertaking, and nobody is faulting the manufacturer here for using identical sources.  (cond.)

Review:  (cont.)
The task to improve aesthetics is an easier exploit to obtain. Thinman does use rare and stunning photos that make for an elegant release, and render a very cohesive looking three CD set. Where they can be faulted is their lack of effort with the discs themselves. The blank, generic looking discs is an inherent obstacle with this label. As their discs do not even mention Dylan, perhaps they have the need for their CDs to remain generic and anonymous to their pressing plant. Another possibility of improvement could have been a small info/photo booklet to accompany the discs in the double thick case to add more substance. But let's not lose sight of the things done well. They made an intelligent choice in picking this title to re-issue. It's unique, not very prevalent and an interesting representation of the '74 tour.  And again, the photos are outstanding along with clean font and correct date and venue information. (Capricorn neglected to site the times and places of the material) The opinion here is that re-issues should outdo their predecessor. This perhaps was accomplished, but not quite to the level one would have hoped.
