Wait….there's a song missing!
Where's "Love Minus Zero/No Limit"?? It was track #8 on the original CD! Also, "Rainy Day Women #12 & 35" & "Desolation Row" are flip-flopped.
MINUS 1 star for the faux pas.
Great renditions, shredded voice
By The Original BJ
Everyone ages. Sometimes an artist's voice doesn't age at the same rate that they do, and it can cause some songs to sound strange in the modified versions that result. As a big fan of Dylan's 60s and early 70s work, I can say that the vocals on this album will be VERY hard to get into for a casual and/or new listener. In comparison to the studio tracks, Bob makes heavy changes to his vocal rhythm and delivery, making some of the songs sound slurred and unpleasant. However, the band sitting behind Bob is top notch, and it makes most of the tracks listenable. If you only give one track at shot, try this version of "Knockin' on Heaven's Door." It's in a higher key than the original, and Dylan's wizened voice works well with delivery pattern he chose for the song.
Gather round people wherever you roam
Accept it that soon...these songs do indeed lose their relevance. Which I never thought would happen to Dylan songs. But even in 1994 some of these were pretty dated. No one would have said that 30 years ago. Except maybe Dylan himself. I don't know. But I guess I should criticize what I can't understand.
The old road is rapidly aging.
A shot of love from Bob. Can't decide my favorite All Along the Watchtower?Dignity? Desolation Row? A gem from beginning to end.
Forever a Legend

his voice was starting to go.. he couldn't even stand up for this show... John Brown is the other one that rivals the original... but Like A Rolling Stone is sad.. but this one.. way better than the 1963 version which started and stopped with shrieking harmonica and naivete. . . this one hits it.. great Bucky Baxter steel guitar.. a world weary version that comes full circle

Maybe only for hardcore Dylan fans?
By Notorious CRO
Can't say I'm a huge Dylan fan, but he was always on a list of artists I wanted to get to know better. After listening to my dad's copy of this CD, I can't understand how anyone would enjoy listening to this. His voice is awful and he plays around with the rhythm of all the lyrics so much that the songs just don't flow. I listen to the original recordings of these songs and love them, but this unplugged version is actually painful to sit through.
A Great Late Live Dylan performance
By Cisco Bradley
Even though his voice isn't what it used to be, Dylan puts on a great show here. Definitely worth listening to. I particularly enjoy tracks 2, 5, 7, 8, 11.
Dylan the great
