Side One
1) 5 stars, throughout 6-7, but a 10-sec. dropout after 1 minute makes it worse.
2)  4-5 stars, wow & flutter, tape hiss, dropouts; bob doesn't treat the song too well...
3)  6-7 stars , dry and compact sound, although cd "olympic pleasure sounds" far far better.
4)  7-8 stars, full sound/frequency range, close & dry; catching performance, 2 little harp solos
5)  6-7 stars, distant, some distortions due to over peak recording levels (??)
Side Two
1)  4-5 stars, dropouts, very distant, bassy, crowd noises; a bit uninspired .
2)  4-5 stars, distant, bassy, flaw, wows like a 5th generation tape - was it the first performance of that song? He plays a nice guitar...
3)  5 stars , flaw, bassy Bob introduces the song as .."my favorite honey...", huge crowd response (i.e. NOISE) as van steps up; he takes it away..
4)  6 stars, crisp sound, sharp tone
5)  7 stars good sound, crowd noises; soulful performance
6)  5 stars Bob's introduction hardly audible, flaw; somewhere between al martino and dean martin....

Front Cover
Back Cover
This early 1992 release from European Label Spliff, was one of the last vinyl Dylan boots ever to be produced. The title has a multi level meaning. The cover is fairly nice with good aesthetics. The back contains full track and venue information. The catalog number on the back cover is: SPLIFF 002. There is no song separation, and no playing times are listed. All tracks are "field recordings", and quality varies (see details at left).

6 stars (overall)   NMP45 

Matrix: DY-A/B (handwritten)
