Patti Smith and band opening for Bob Dylan. This is the fourth show of the tour but the first time that Patti joins Bob for a song. She screws up the lyrics a few times but the passion of this performance of 'Dark Eyes' still overwhelms me. One of my very favourite Dylan compositions and moments.
This is a fresh transfer of my master and therefore will differ from previous uploads of this performance, if any.
Faults: Applause has been balanced and various audience hoots and shouts have been supressed or removed but some still remain.
