This is a great recording of an historic concert. Dylan performs some long absent jewels during this first tour of Japan in nearly a decade. The audience recording is a touch dark, but it's well mixed. Bob's vocals are slightly low in the mix on the softest words, but the overall effect is that they are well represented, and not above the music. Thanks to the always polite and respectful Japanese audience, even the softest lyrics are well heard. The highlight tonight is a breathtaking acoustic version of Masters Of War. The first time in over 30 years! Also included are some great filler highlights of some of the other rarities performed during the February Japanese tour. The sound quality is similar throughout, but in-between song splices of the filler material are cold cut, and amateurish. R.E. has created a package worthy of the event. The awe inspiring "St. Robert" cartoon graces the front cover of this classy set. Truly, "Beauty walks a Razor's Edge"
