A wonderful collection of three terrific German shows plus equally fine filler. Taken individually, each set is presented in squaky clean and crunchy quality and captures a varied and energetic performance by Dylan & Band, with an interesting array of rarely played tunes dotting each show's setlist (with well chosen filler, too). Collectively, we have a total of 71 performances of about 50 different tunes and almost seven and a half hours of vintage '98 Dylan. Quality is excellent throughout all the disks, perhaps not "AS" primo as "At The Globe" or "Bette Davis.." but certainly in the upper echelon of '98 gigs. From the vantage point of sound, performance & setlist desirability, each of these German gigs will leave you feeling more than satisfied.............and the carefully selected, motley crew of top notch filler on each is just icing on the cake.
