Review by Mike Kelly

This was my fifth time seeing Bob perform ( my first time was the Cardiff
1966 concert with the Hawks, which ranks #1 ) The Prince George show would
get a #2 rating !

Pre show ( there was a group of us  twentyfour to be exact ! who all met up
for a pre-party a few hours before the gig,,,,90 % not knowing what to
expect !,,Anyway, i would say most of us enjoyed the concert,,the sound was
i little on the 'muffled" side at times,,,could of been mixed better.

Highlights, for me were,,Don't think twice, Highway 61,Duguesne Whistle was
wonderfull,,,Summer days took me some time to recognise !! Tangled up in
Blue was very good too,,,,,,My favorite was Long and wasted Years and the
two encore songs,,Blowin in the wind and Ballad of a thin man were very well
performed too,,,,,,Oh, i would put Desolation Row in with Long and Wasted
Years as my top two picks. Iv'e not been a fan of Bob singing the Sinatra
songs, but i did enjoy Stormy Weather. We were sat at the far end of a
Hockey arena, but high up. One of our group said after the show, " who was
that man who kept getting up from the Piano to sing ballads !!  too  funny !
All in all a good gig,, has band is awesome,,,think Bob could of let them go
a bit more with some of their solo's
