This is a re-release of the 1992 KTS CD entitled 'Stadiums of the Damned' A great release from the start, this unknown Label has gone KTS one better by eliminating much of the white noise, and bringing out the music a tad more to give the CD a smoother, more natural feel. The package and aesthetics are not quite as nice as the earlier release (being simply a cardboard slip case), but the sound quality improvement makes this one a winner. The above two 'grayed out' songs from the concert have yet to turn up among collectors. Of course, as with it's benefactor, the songs are all edited in and out.

Concert Review
Dylan delivers a knock-out performance. The gospel material is powerful and biting without a condescending edge. The older standards are performed with a new fire and passion that includes them among the best live versions to date. Dylan stumbles on the lyrics once or twice, but adds new lines as well that more than compensate. The vocals are crisp are over the top out front and in your face. The music is tight, well mixed, and well performed.
