having recently seen girl from the north country at the olympia with my wife, which we both enjoyed, i was glad to actually find this show lying around.  while i’m not the biggest dylan fan, i’d not have guessed that gftnc was all dylan’s music (sometimes even for songs that i knew).  and the music was really good (except hurricane, which didn’t seem to fit the story).  listening to this too, i kept forgetting that these are all dylan covers too, mostly from blonde on blonde which would be from the period that i would have listened to most.

  2. Thank you so much. I have a copy of this show in MP3 320kbps. It’s nice to have a better encoding. Thank you again!

    • you’re welcome.

      like you, i prefer “a better encoding” (and also have grabbed a lossless version to replace a lossy copy from time to time). but i question whether i have the equipment and/or the ears to hear the difference between mp3/320 and flac (or other lossless). lower bitrates… well, maybe different.
