This concert was the penultimate show in Dylan's attempt to recapture the success of the earlier Rolling Thunder Review (which I saw and remains one of the best shows I have ever seen). Unlike the earlier tour, this one was not well-received, and (amazingly) some shows were even cancelled due to poor ticket sales. From our vantage point, however, these remain marvelous performances that demonstrate (like anybody needed any proof) how Dylan is constantly rethinking his songs. The hard-driving, edgy version of "Hard Rain" he delivered in the earlier tour now becomes a slower, more contemplative song, and he turns the acoustic "Shelter From the Storm" into a funky, bluesy stomp in which he plays slide guitar. 
Four songs were officially released (indicated below), and obviously, they are not included.
