Nice to see Bob’s controversial electric performance released in an attractive one disc set. While much of this is available with excellent b&w video on ‘The Other Side of the Mirror’ dvd, Dylan fans will appreciate the complete audio (and bonus cuts) here in soundboard quality. This is a landmark show in Bob’s career and indeed the history of 60s rock. I am surprised Sony/Columbia has not already issued something similar on cd.
