This is a beautiful, controlled tour leg with much to offer.
The band is very tight, having just completed an extraordinary tour of Australia and New Zealand.
Although Bob continues to experiment with new or traditional songs, the emphasis here is on his own back catalogue.
Bob plays an enormous amount of harmonica, and he seems genuinely interested in good performances.
Portable DAT recorders are starting to appear, with quantum improvements in sound quality,
but digitial is still an occasional windfall – so we keep jumping from black & white to colour & back again.
It is very difficult to dislike anything here – there are no lows
but there are also few highs where you stop everything you are doing and just listen.
BUT the few highs (& I am not going to name them for you) are more than extraordinary.
& then there is Mr Tambourine Man – you cannot even catagorise that happens here.
Great sound (for the most part), focused Bob, well-rehearsed band – lap it up!.

All 55 songs played on the tour leg are here. There is debate about whether Disease of Conceit was played
on 19 May in Los Angeles. The “track” on the single circulating tape of this concert has a Grateful Dead track
which is not Disease Of Conceit so I am assuming (like Jokerman) that it was not played.

The downside is Bob’s vocals – which are all over the place from extreme nasal to truly beautiful.
The Hawaiian concerts are horrible nasal (except for a few songs which make you weep with joy – you work it out, I can’t).
& what happens when you take the tune from an old folk ballad (Golden Vanity),
mess with the words & electrify it to scare even Hendrix – Under The Red Sky, of course!
