The Library has three audience recordings.
The first is a pretty good, but incomplete, monaural recording, compromised by the usual audience chatter and revelry. The taper, Keith, who very kindly sent the Library his Master tape, wrote: 'This one is missing the first 4 1/2 songs. I was standing outside of the SHOWROOM hoping somebody would come by with some comp. tickets for me and my girl. Sure enough, some dude came by and said"Dylan sucks" & gave me his tix. We heard the whole show but I couldn't whip my recorder out right in the hallway. Its pretty good. We were in the 9th row on the left side. Killer "DRIFTER'S ESCAPE"! Enjoy.' The recording begins roughly two and an half minutes from the end of Tangled Up In Blue. Otherwise, clean and problem free. Thanks Keith! Dubbed 12/02/00. 90 min. Request 001118L1.
The second is a very good stereo recording, compromised only by the brief failure of the venue's sound system and a good bit of audience chatter and revelry, including some X rated vulgarities. Regarding the sound system failure, Jeremy, who recorded the performance on MiniDisc, wrote: "The only real problem was the late show in Atlantic City when Bob blew an amplifier and lost vocals. You can only hear the band play for the end of one song and the beginning of the next." The affected songs are My Back Pages and It's Alright, Ma (I'm Only Bleeding). Otherwise, clean, complete and problem free. Thanks Jeremy! Dubbed 12/29/00. 100 min. Request 001118L2.
The third is taken from an amateur hand-held video recording that suffers from a few glitches at the outset and intermittent static, throughout. Otherwise, complete and problem free. Thanks, Ruth! Dubbed 05/02/01. 100 min. Request 001118L3. Video source also available on 120 min. VHS. Request 001118L3V.
