Notes
Great uncirculated IEM recording of a great show, the North West US run has always been considered a highlight of the tour. Features one of my
favourite single performances of the entire tour in Highway 29, and a nice acoustic For You. Slightly better than the Portland IEM, to my ears.

Really nice, well shot DVD of a great Devils & Dust Tour show, dubbed with the IEM recording. If you want a guarantee of quality, while not an official JEMS release, the JEMS folks had a hand both the audio and video recording of this DVD. Note that the audio is the straight IEM (probably with some EQ, I don't recall), not the recently released IEM/AUD mix. It's no masterpiece but it is highly watchable, with Bruce in good humour in the penultimate show of the leg. With eldest son Evan on hand, there's a great version of Long Time Comin', and there's also a very atmospheric performance of Highway 29. Plenty of other rarities, including the tour premiere of Be True and the third Frankie in three shows.
