Interview and listener calls * (10 minutes)
The Manchester show is moot now with the release of the official album, but this actually has a slightly softer, more polished sound. This CD is most likely the correct order and venues of what has traditionally been a very confusing and inaccurate account of the performances in the bootleg community. These represent clean, quiet recordings... although they have been available to collectors for so long that it's almost hard to get excited about them. If you're new to collecting, by all means, this is required material ... and in as good a quality as you are likely to find. Unfortunately, with all these wondrful soundboard tapes that were presented in this exhaustive set... the manufacturer has resorted to presenting a copy of this show that was recorded from vinyl. There's vinyl noise throughout. Because this show was usually booted to vinyl in great quality, this is still a pleasant listening expierence. Old timers will find this recording strangely comforting, for those raised in the CD era, swallow your pride... you will not die, it's not poison. You might even find it a little warmer sounding than what you've been used to hearing. At the final tracck of disc one, we magically switch to a pristien tape source. We get to hear a rarity on the tour... Bob introduces The Band. Then he kicks into the highlight of disc one... a paifully slow Like A Rolling Stone in which Bob spits words at the crowd with venom, and drags them into eternity. On disc 2 we resume with the vinyl.
