Epic, but the release cuts out the critical talking bits that cement the performance's importance.

Yes, it's THAT gig. The first disc, which features the acoustic part of the show, is oKay, a bit dull though to be honest, the second disc, the electric half,is as good as it gets. It's stunning, the energy and grit is infectious, Dylan sounds really fired up, tell me, mom a, is a fantastic opener and it never lets up from there. A genuine piece of rock'n'roll history, this an essential live album that any music fan MUST have in his/her collection. Brilliant.

The most necessary of all the bootleg series. A distallation of an individual spirit that would not comprimise in the face of swathes of followers threatening to dessert.

The greatest live album ever? I think so, it's Dylan at his absolute peak. A full acoustic set, followed by a full electric set. The musician's musician. He's on a whole different level.

To me, the greatest live album of all time - I'll make a chart sometime in the future. This show/album has everything you want in a live performance; emotion, enlightenment, intensity, aura; and then, well, Rock...just great, great rock music, stickin' it to the fans. An incredibly brave performance from Bob - almost anyone else would have buckled under the pressure.

From Mercury

A live set from the day after the album Blonde On Blonde dropped. 2 disc set, first disc is his first acoustic set and disc 2 is when he comes back out with his band The Band and ROCKS THEIR SOCKS OFF!

It's his rock stuff, and the boos and the back and forth with the crowd ("JUDAS!" "I don't believe you, YOU'RE A LIAR") that gets most of the focus here. Truly though disc 1 is pretty great too. Dylan seems legitimately interested and engaging and the folk fan crowd loves that there no sign of the inevitable band. The rendition of "Visions of Johanna" gets a bit emotionally flat toward the end for me. And I'm not loving some of the harmonica solos here on disc 1. Otherwise, "She Belongs to Me" and "Desolation Row" and "Just Like A Woman" are all pretty killer.

As for disc 2, the electric set, it's perfect. It's just pure, no nonsense rock music at its most aggressive (for that time especially). I'm reminded of that sports cliche that a great team plays it's best and with it's greatest fire when it's in hostile territory. This band also seems to run off that old idea. As the crowd gets more and more rude, the band just gets louder and more precise. This album just oozes defiance and greatness. Literally every one of the 8 songs on disc 2 are brilliant. In many cases these live versions are greater than the originals or at least equally great in a different way. Disc 2 is a 100.

Overall, it's a classic. Maybe my favorite live album ever.

From Big A2
@HyperBully: I'm not so sure about that logic. Are documentary films (such as, speaking of Dylan, "Dont Look Back") unable to be classified as art because they depict real life? Are photos of actual events also not able to be classified as art?

Yeah, it was a mistake actually. Most fans mistakenly believed it was recorded at the Royal Albert Hall for years, which is why it is written in quotes on the album cover.

The only rules for my chart were "no compilations" and "no live albums." I chose to do this because I think it's unfair to put real, live concerts up against a studio creation, which is a work of art. Concerts, on the other hand, are real events - they are "live." By ranking concerts, I am technically ranking life. That being said, this is one event I wish I was alive to be a part of. I would've shut up those idiotic hecklers. On a related note, am I the only one who thought it was really ignorant to call a Jewish person (Dylan) "Judas?" I'm just saying.
