The story goes that special attention was paid this night to the performance and mixing, as CBS had plans of releasing it as a live gospel LP. I don't know that the story has been officially substantiated. The results, however, speak for themselves. This is one incredible CD. The sound quality is nothing short of officially releasable quality. The performance is breath taking. Dylan manages a few sparks from the hell-fire and brimstone performances of the previous fall. This one is not to be missed. Even if you're not a fan of the gospel material, you will sit back in amazement at one of the finest hours of the maestro. The package photos are superb. The graphics are simple and elegant. If there could be any complaint at all, it would be that the disc leaves you wanting more. Indeed, this represents only half of the concert. Although not quite the quality, the entire concert of the following night was released by Flashback as "The Born Again Music". For the sake of confusion, there's a recording of the following night entitled "Solid Rock".
