New - 30th Anniversary Concert on DVD

Thanks to K Lewis for notification that “the dylan 30th anniversary concert dvd will be released on 7 April”, and for a link to one of the suppliers, Spin:

The (confusing) detail on the Spin site indicates that the double DVD will have fewer tracks than the original CD release, 30th Anniversary Concert Celebartion – 19 tracks instead of 29.

Dylan Daily readers will differ on the 30th Anniversary Concert, held in Madison Square Garden in 1992. Some found it tiresome, exposing the bankruptcy of rock in the early 1990s.

Dylan was hardly compelling, the rest missable. Apart, that is, from Roger McGuinn and Neil Young. Young, who stole the show, with rousing versions of Just Like Tom Thumb's Blues and All Along The Watchtower, is missing from Spin’s tracklist for the new DVD.
