NOTE: Not recommended as a commercial artifact. This set includes nearly a full disc's worth of pirated tracks (listed in italics). The DVD authoring is clumsy and obtrusive; the menus are primitive and incomplete. Many tracks are hamhandedly edited, to shave off part or all of the intros or outros; therefore, the transitions can be unnecessarily abrupt and are sometimes jarring. Some scarcer, sometimes historic tracks where Dylan was a backing musician have been pointlessly chopped out or excluded -- most notably "Keep Your Eyes On The Prize," from August 1963, as well as the later Chabad telethons -- to make room for recent, quite common, or occasionally trivial material. The extensive set of excerpts from Renaldo And Clara in particular seems added to pad out the set (and inflate its price); virtually all the purchasers of this set can be expected to seek out the complete film. By all accounts, this is not even a "best sources" compilation; quite a few selections reportedly circulate in better (or at least glitch-free) video or superior sound. The packaging is minimal; the listings and annotations are often unreliable, occasionally clearly incorrect. All that said, however, it is also more than fair to agree that the set compiles the great majority of circulating, pro-shot Dylan performance video recordings in, for the most part, high-grade audio and video. [Only the Don't Look Back outtakes are newly circulating, and their provenance is a shade dubious.] Most (but not all) of the exclusions are fragmentary or murky, or are part of free-standing recordings. The description of it as "the backbone" of a Dylan DVD-video collection is certainly accurate (even though a bit of spinal surgery would have be advisable). In many ways this is a worthwhile compilation -- but it definitely is not worth the inflated prices at which is has often been offered for sale. A fan project based on this set now circulates with the technical defects remedied, and is certainly the preferred form of this compilation.
