(79min), from master, excellent sound, better and different source
version than bootleg cd No Photographs Please; this version has complete t1 and
vocals are more upfront

Excellent Audience Recording

No idea whether this source has circulated as I have had no reason to compare with any other.

  1. bobsboots on this one : Review:
    A less than fantastic (but by no means bad by 1989 standards) audience recording of an excellent show. The recording level is loud, but
    not ‘front row’ and overall it sounds a bit muddy. The guitars and drums are fighting for center stage along with Dylan’s vocals. Part of the opening song is missing, and Silvio features some muffling. The performance itself is excellent rock and roll, with an interesting (and surprisingly good) outing for the Traveling Wilburys’ Congratulations. Packaging is typical of Wanted Man: minimal front and back insert, but the photos are nice. The hooded shot is from 4 days earlier in Dublin. A fairly decent disc from a year under-represented on cd.
