Review by Ron Wells
People have been critical of this band, but to tell the truth, I don’t know why. They are tighter than ever. Stu Kimball doesn’t seem to do a whole lot, and Donnie Heron watches Bob so closely it looks like he fears the wrath of Bob if he misses a note, but Tony, George, Denny and all of them do remarkable work. I might have preferred Sexton/Campbell, but this band is about the tightest working band today in my estimation. I might quibble and say Highway 61 and Summer Days weren’t that special, but these are minor, minor complaints. Nettie Moore has become a crowd favorite and Bob really enunciates the words, causing a hush to come over the sometimes boisterous crowd. It’s like everyone just sits back in awe and wonder at the power of the man and his words. Highlights? Too many. Everything. We go from a raucous Rainy Day Women to a peace inspired Blowin’ in the Wind, with stops everywhere in-between. His harp playing was thoughtful and inspired, adding depth and texture to the songs. After one hour and forty-five minutes, it’s over. Bob and the band stand facing a crowd of old timers and first timers, all on their feet screaming and applauding, lit up by the outdoor amphitheater’s lights so Bob can look out on his congregation. He holds the mike stand in his left hand and slowly points two fingers at the people in the front rows as he takes in the adoration of the crowd. Then he ‘s gone. The Church of Bob slowly empties under the smiling moon. If you miss him, it’s your sin. Not his.

Review by Michael Smith
And what a show it was! The Bob of the night before was gone, replaced by another Bob, some kind of torch singer who confidently sang his heart out on six (six!) of his best slow, moving ballads: I'll Remember You, Make You Feel My Love, It Ain't Me, Babe, I'll Remember You, Standing in the Doorway and Moonlight. The show started off on the right foot with a very snappy Tombstone Blues, followed by an achingly beautiful I'll Remember You. This was great to hear as the M&A version had been stuck inside my head all day. Make You Feel My Love, in the fourth slot, provided another early highlight when Bob began with a great harp intro in which he actually played the song's melody pretty faithfully. There was more great harp between the verses as well. The whole show was solid but the other highlights for me were: Cold Irons Bound - with the same "false ending" as in Kelseyville. Incredibly sung with Bob roaring out the words like some kind of wrathful god. It Ain't Me, Babe - another beautiful version. I had no clue what this was when it started because Larry was playing the cittern without a capo and it sounded very different. Then, during the middle of the song, the guitar tech came out and clamped one down on the neck. It didn't detract from the performance at all though because Bob sang this wonderfully from beginning to end. I Believe in You - an amazing rendition where I felt like Bob recaptured the spirit of '79 with his singing (especially the way he drew out some of the words, like "heeeeeaaaaaaart"). This made my girlfriend cry. What else can I say? Standing in the Doorway - the new arrangement from last tour. I wasn't crazy about the mp3s I had heard of this (it sounded a bit awkward to me - as if the melody Bob was singing didn't go with the music the band was playing) but I sure was when I heard it in person. Bob sang this very slowly and deliberately in that great low voice and nailed down all of the words.
