The Library has two recordings.
The first is pretty good, but incomplete, soundboard recording. The 15th set (The Times They Are A-Changin') fades prematurely; the 16th and 23rd sets (A Hard Rain's A-Gonna Fall and When You Gonna Wake Up) are missing. Sets 14 and 15 (Gamblin' Man and The Times They Are A-Changin') are taken from a different source and are a bit bassy. Still, quite a good listen. Dubbed 09/24/96. 110 min.
The second is a fair, but complete, audience recording. The beginning of I'll Be Your Baby Tonight is clipped as is the end of Dead Man. The taper, who wishes to remain anonymous, was rather disparaging when discussing the quality of the recording and was, at first, reluctant to share it. Granted, it is a bit heavy on the bass, but judicious use of a Graphic Equalizer will take care of that. Otherwise it's clean, complete and problem free. Dubbed 02/05/98. 1 x 90 min. and 1 x 60 min.
