This has always been a very difficult tour leg to get your mind around
because there are a lot of bad sounding tapes & a lot of misinformation.

The almost always reliable Jokerman is missing in action here with many recommended tapes actually sounding poor
& some excellent sounding tapes being rated as poor. Never mind, it is all sorted out here.

The real find are the last two concerts from Winnipeg, particularly 6/18 which is a brilliant performance in great sound.
Winnipeg 6/18 is presented in its entirity here.

So what have we got with this one?:
an interesting combination of some of the “heaviest” electric songs since Bob let the band go feral in late-78
with Billy Cross on lead guitar – Bob actually lets GE solo on much of this;
a great emphasis on the new “acoustic with the band” format of 60s & 70s classics, which gives them a richer sound; &
lots & lots of harmonica.

Bob & the band are all in great form here – maybe not quite as good as the preceding Fastbreak Tour but still premium Bob.
However, there has been a deliberate attempt to change the sound & this is what you get.

A real gem is Bob playing piano on Where Teardrops Fall (Kingston 5/30)
which is as good a performance as the piano Disease Of Conceit (London 2/8 Fastbreak Tour).

If you want to hear electric GE with all the stops out, try Highway 61 Revisited (Winnipeg 6/17) or Political World (Winnipeg 6/18).
If you want brilliant “acoustic with the band”, try No More One More Time (Winnipeg 6/17).
& then there is crazy – Ronnie Hawkins antics (Toronto 6/6) or the “heavy electric” experimental The Times They Are A Changin’ (Toronto 6/5).
I love this tour leg – you might too. The sound is much, much better than you might thing.

all sourced from 100% lossless FLAC from best available sound sources.

The emphasis here is on the classic 60s & 70s songs, with emphasis on the acoustic songs which were played in the new “acoustic with the band” format.

It was, as was all of 1990, a wild setlist ride.
