The front cover of this title erroneously states that the recording is from the January 30 show. It is not. It's from the 31st. The 30th show was different in that Bob sang Something There Is About You, instead of Highway 61.

What Are You Trying To Say?

A rather strange combination of '74 and '65 material packaged in a slimline fold-out case with no Dylan photos or artwork. The '74 tracks are great. the music is a little to the background, and a little muffled. The vocals, however, are right in your face and crystal clear.
Very worthwhile! Unfortunately, the Berkeley show is hard to listen to. There are a lot of low end sonic problems. The master tape itself is not of the best quality, but it is of such historical importance that it deserves a little more time in the equalization department than what it has been given here. A better choice for owning  this unique recording would be  'Long Distance Operator' where the recording has been cleaned up somewhat.
