The package is average, simple and clean with a distinct Japanese look. The show contains some gems. Don't Think Twice is powerful, and Shelter From The Storm has a funky beat that makes it one of the best songs of the set. It gives us three Bob organ solos (which are not all that great,but fun to hear nonetheless). In the middle of Summer Days, the big band sound swings into full force with playful organ solos.
Cold Irons Bound has a new menacing 4/4 drive that breathes new life into it, and elevates it to a definite set highlight. At the first hint of the soft, elevator music sound of Mr. Tambourine Man, the crowd erupts into thunderous applause. For the most part, however, they remain the standard, quiet, polite Japanese audience.
Disc 2 opens with a hard rocking Highway 61 Revisited in which Dylan alternates his voice in each line between Vegas crooner and country bull-frog ala' Clarence Henry. The title track, Not Dark Yet, is hands down the best track of disc two... if not the entire set. Thunder On The Mountain is played way too fast, and looses it's punch and appeal. Worth the price of the package, although, is hearing Bob scream out "Oh My Ga-w-w-w-w-d" in Ballad Of A Thin Man! A must-hear! It will give you chills.
