New source has definitely clearer sound than the old source.
Recording: "All Along The Watchtower" - 2.5 stars

This show marks a tipping point for the band: it's a sellout with 1000 people in and 700 people outside. Unfortunately, the bootleg captures the show poorly. The most important thing is that Pete Wylie from the band Wah Heat! (terrible name) joins them and sings All Along The Watchtower. Sounds interesting in theory, but the performance is quite dreadful.
