I loved seeing mr. Harrison dressed in purple, however, someone else has said he sang off key. and I suppose this must be so. are there some songs which sound better, sung off key? this might be one of them. neil young sounds a little lackadaisical on his contribution to the song which several performers take part in to close the show. Clapton's guitar might possibly be too large for the song he did. but don't think twice, it's all right. it's good to hear chrissie hynde's , and the byrds' singer's contribution, too.

Finally released on DVD 22 years after the fact, it is well worth the time to watch it just for Dylan's portion of the show. A wide ranging group of artists play both the hits and a few deep cuts (See Lou Reed's version of Foot of Pride). There are perhaps a few artists here that really don't belong, but there is no shortage of wonderful renditions of some great Dylan songs. Neil Young delivers a scorching version of All Along the Watchtower while Eric Clapton reinvents the somber Don't Think Twice, It's Alright into a rocker with some blistering guitar work. George Harrison would also make one of his final live concert performances on this night playing a faithful version of Absolutely Sweet Marie. If you are a fan of either Bob Dylan or one of the many artist featured here, you will enjoy watching this.

A tribute concert to one singularly worthy of tribute by his peers (many of whom are worthy of tribute in their own right: Johnny Cash, Neil Young, Willie Nelson, George Harrison, Tom Petty, Stevie Wonder ...).

Bob Dylan's 30th Anniversary Concert Album is over 20 years old now, but it still is in great demand. It simply was a great concert with just the best artists on the bill. Even Bob Dylan comes out at the end to join the artists on stage. My favorites were Johnny Cash and Neil Young. You may want to hear one of the five copies the KCLS has on hand. I will warn you, 33 sharp KCLS patrons are already waiting for it. It is worth the wait and you won't regret hearing a once in a lifetime concert.
