This package is nice all the way around, from the great aesthetics to the wonderful sound. Part of the small venue tour 1999. The filler is well chosen highlights from the MSG 1998 show. The show highlights are many. As for the acoustic songs, Boots Of Spanish Leather is incredible, and Visions Of Johanna is sweet (Bob changes the lyrics to Visions Of Madonna). As for the electric tunes; the funky, hard driving Not Fade Away steals the show. Ballad Of A Thin Man is bluesy perfection. The Rex Features cover photo pictures a bleary eyed troubadour in yet another relentless interview.
