Review: 
This is a great representation of the '76 material.  The mono soundboard recording is not up to today's standards (there is quite a bit of tape hiss), but it is right up there among the best tapes of the tour. The sonic problems disappear, however, once you concentrate on the songs (such as the way Bob draws out the words on Maggie's Farm or the happy feeling bounce of the reworked Shelter From The Storm. The performance is as good as you will find from this tour. The set includes 14 of the 16 Dylan performances. While giving a larger overview of the entire revue, the set leaves off Isis and You're A Big Girl Now. The package, typical of this label, is very sparse and unworthy of such a historical recording.
