Dylan delivers a knock-out performance. The gospel material is powerful
and biting without a condescending edge.
The older standards are performed with a new fire and passion that
includes them among the best live versions to date.
Dylan stumbles on the lyrics once or twice, but adds new lines as well that more than compensate.
The vocals are crisp are over the top out front and in your face.
The music is tight, well mixed, and well performed.
It might be a little dark, murky, and low in the overall mix for some tastes.
Don't let that sway you from this incredible piece, however.
Others will find the vocals to music relation pure heaven.
