Peace Frog releases commercial CDr's. The discs are burnt, and then fitted with a largely generic clear plastic label that gives them an appearance of being a silver disc. The thing that sets a commercial release apart from a homemade one is the professionally printed inserts. That being true, a manufacturer should go to the nth degree to insure a desirable package. This one includes a shot of Dylan and band at shows end that has been cloned into a 4 way mirror image that seems to have the band facing themselves. The back shows a Las Vegas billboard announcing the show. The biggest problem is the chosen font that places the apostrophes at the bottom of the word, making them appear to be a comma. It causes aesthetic problems with song titles, but worst of all, the package title seems incorrect.

The song choices might seem a bit pedestrian, but the performance is among the best of the tour. Bob changes up openers with a lively Duncan And Brady, pours his heart out in an incredible version of Don't Think Twice, and closes the show with a powerful Blowin' In The Wind. The soaring harmonies will give you chills. The show stealer, however, is Standing In The Doorway. The beautiful and powerful new delivery of the lyrics will simply melt you. Whether to pay for a CDr is a personal choice, but this performance deserves a listen one way or the other.
