The packaging is bare minimal. The worst offense is that this common, easily identified venue is not listed anywhere on the CD. The cover and back inserts are pieces of the thinnest paper imaginable. The front does, however, have a nice full color concert photo of Dylan (albeit from the wrong decade). The final complaint is that the disc contains a minimal amount of songs. All tracks from  d-47  could easily have been combined onto this disc to create one continuous playing CD that would be well worth the money. All complaints registered, I must say that the quality of the recording is superior to most others I've heard of this venue.
The Gaslight recordings have been released in many different packages over the years. They are are an absolute 'must-have' for any serious Dylan collector.

Bob's Boots ref  #

The CDs all had the same title, and nothing identified them as four individual titles, save for the catalog number on the spine. This CD was also released as part of a 4 CD package that also included: 
d-44d-45, and d-47
