This was the second show on the 1999 "PaulBob" tour, with Dylan opening for Simon.

As this is the second show of a long tour, the energy level is somewhat tempered due to a few technical difficulties. Paul and Bob's duets are more tentative than with later shows, but they are quite enjoyable, nevertheless.

Dylan's set his high-energy, tight and very good. This is no surprise, as Dylan has toured - basicaly non-stop - since his health scare in 1996. His band is small, accomplished, and very talented, and Dylan sings is a much more legible style than in years past.

Simon's set is very, very good. His band works well, and the show is very polished for such an early gig in the tour. While not as electric as, say, the shows at Madison Square Garden, Jones Beach or Montauk (Back to The Ranch), Simon's showmanship is in full display.

This three-disc set is available under at least two labels. The sound quality, while distant, is quite clean, with little annoying audience interruption. This is the first full-show ROIO from the PaulBob tour to surface outside of private trading circles, and is worth having in any collection.
