In 2001, an unknown Japanese manufacturer re-released several classic boot CDs using the old TMQ logos. For this reason, they are referred to as "TMOQ Japan". The package is a cardboard slip case with a black and white front sticker, A gold foil TMQ sticker on the back, and a TMQ logo printed CD. This release is a copy of the 1997 Blue Eye Records release of the same title. This disc represents the entire Dylan portion of the circulating mono soundboard recording. It is believed that the entire show was recorded in stereo from the sound console. Never to have surfaced are the show's two opening numbers, 'When I Paint My Masterpiece' and 'It Ain't Me, Babe'. The sound quality of the recording is as true and clean as any ever made along the Rolling Thunder tour. The vocals are crisp, powerful, and on top of the mix. All instruments are well balanced and represented in the overall sound.
The 11th recording made along the tour, this show was recorded on the 11th day of the 11th month .... and what a magical mystery tour it is. The complex, though loose weaving and interacting of the instruments and vocals create a beautiful tapestry that will not be matched on any tour before or since. With the 'Desire' album to be released in a few weeks, Bob relies heavily on it for the show material. The cryptic songs of desire and despair add another layer to the thick blanket of mythography that is, was, and will forever be 'Rolling Thunder'.
