    The "I Want You" arrangement is great but he flubbed the "silver saxophones say I" bit, which is why they couldn't include it. If you think his vocals are unintelligble here, listen to any live shows post-2000 or so! Good album, better on video. "Love Minus Zero" is turned into "Crimson and Clover".

    The singing on this album is superb fi you ask me and any Bob Dylan fan knows that he constantly changes, some like that and others don't. I think the album is fantastic and the audience is great!

    I like it, Desolation Row and Like a Rolling Stone are as good as their originals, if you already know the lyrics. Well worth the listen.

    Great album, despite Dylan's being almost unintelligible.

    If you doubt what I just said, listen to the crowd.

    If you think his voice is bad on this album, you just haven't listened to enough Dylan. It takes a while to get used to I think, but once you do, he is amazing. I love this album! The version of Like A Rolling Stone is fantastic, a very refreshing change from the style of the original recordings, and he plays a mean guitar :-). What would the world be like without this man?

    I love it. Signing is good on some tracks, worse on other. The versions of Desolation Row, Dignity and All Along the Watchtower are great though. Very strange they didn't include the beautiful I Want You for the final tracklisting, the great performance of it is available on the completely unplugged bootleg.

    My introduction to Shooting Star, John Brown and With God On Our Side, but largely ruined by his voice, which is obviously far too shot for live work these days.

    I don't see what's so bad about it, it's just different.

    the worst album ever, his voice sounds like crap ... but then again. The man has gotten old!

    i can't stand his singing in this album, or really for that matter his voice in any of his live work
