Review by Iris Seifert

It was a good mixed show - he started with "Leopard Skin Pillbox Hat". And then "This Dream of you" - a premiere? Then it was alternating amost between old and new, or newer songs. Right away it was noticeable that the signature sound of Mr. Freeman"s Gibson guitar was missing, but Mr. Sexton made up for it with his inteeresting contributions, show-wise (allthough i prefer the more inobtrusive behavior of the other band members) as well as musically, especially when he played some duets with Mr. Dylan in "High Water" and a bluesy "Hell's my wife's hometown - the two men seemed to have a good time together; i did not hear the shows with him and Mr. Campbell, so it lacks comparison. In the end it is of course up to Mr. Dylan to pick who he plays with ...

Review by Mark Stevens
I'd have to give this the nod as the best of the two, one of those exceptional nights where the songs are blended nicely with precise and evocative ensemble playing, with Bob taking a bit more care with the vocals and phrasing. Better Harp and Guitar playing from him as well, last night he was a bit raggedy (those of you who go to multiples know what I mean) Charlie was even tastier tonight, and while I loved Larry Campbell to the point of indecency , it was great to hear what Charlie can do with a bit more room to stretch out. "Forgetful Heart" was magnificent, and the audience stayed quiet enough for the fragile and spectrally brilliant version to work. If you were listening, you had goosebumps.just amazing. Tony was grinning from ear-to-ear several times tonight, that should tell you more than this review!

Review by James Strohecker

**Top Line**
 * New sound 
*New lead guitarist 
* New energy 
*Wow!

The band opened with Gonna Change My Way of Thinking, which was a powerful, refreshing change from openers in years past.  This was hard and rocking, loud and big from the start.  Out of the chute you could see that this was a changed group of musicians:  Charlie Sexton jumped to the center and immediately began rocking.  The band collected out stage-front in a semi circle – something you’d never see in the past – and followed Charlie’s hot lead, as Bob bounced up and down as he played and at times spat out the verse, “Gonna make myself a different set of rules . . . !”

Review by Rick Greenwald
Next up, a loping I Feel a Change Coming On.  As with the other TTL titles, Bob is completely on target on this one.  As Bob shows so much more in these new songs than appears these recent records, it’s a good sign that Dylan obviously has loads left in his creative tank.  And I couldn’t help but think that in some ways, TTL was not really complete until Charlie added his piece on this leg of the tour.

Review by Mark Stevens

Was able to hear part of soundcheck in line this afternoon, seems like they were actually going through "most of the time", the chords were there and you could sing over it. Also heard a bit of "it's alright, ma" without vocals.
