This release is perhaps the first Dylan boot to come in a cardboard digipack. It's a unique one, as well. There are four folding panels that open to form a cross, with the CD nestled in the center. Although the cover is a little week, the inside panels contain great looking photos of Dylan, Garcia, Lesh, and the Dead. The digipack came in a reusable, but annoying cellophane dust cover. The disc clocks in at just under an hour. The two missing songs from the show, Slow Train & Joey are official releases to be found on Dylan And The Dead. The recording is from a stereo feed directly from the soundboard. Each audience cheer at song end fades, somewhat professionally, into the next track. The performance is typical of the tour. Highlight is a funky Chimes Of Freedom.
