Review from Bobsboots:

 10 stars  (Main)
 6½ stars  (Bonus)

This title claims to be a soundboard release, however, it is most likely through the air mic. The audio is great, and is of
a quality  comparable to soundboard. However, what truly makes this show magic Dylan's heartfelt performance. Its clear by
his banter that he's in a good mood (and for Dylan, that often translates to thoughtful, energetic singing). At this point,
he and the band are most comfortable with the Time Out Of Mind material, and seem to be inspired by the new songs. The only
problem with this release is the bonus material. The six audience recorded songs from the prior month are barely decent
quality, and it detracts from the great sound of the United Center. They vary in quality, but the rating shown is an average.
One highlight from that show is a clean, clear, acoustic version of  Forever Young. A highlight from the bonus material is
an emotional She Belongs To Me. Once again, there are sharp and vivid photos included in this TMR package along with
pleasing color schemes that make this a very nice looking release. Unfortunately, for all the effort that TMR has put into
this project, they misspelled the title. All in all it's a recommended purchase, however one suggestion for listening to
this title might be to play the bonus material in a separate sitting in order to allow the critical ear to enjoy the tracks.

From Monicasdude:

NOTE: Although the issuer sources the Chicago tracks to a line recording, that attribution is apparently incorrect; the tracks are likely drawn from a higher-grade audience recording. The conspicuous error in the title reflects the issuer's shoddy packaging practices.

rmd: Tambourine Man is without doubt the worst bootleg label to surface in a long time. I have yet to see TMR release something not already available. Everything is lifted from circulating fan projects, without remastering, and it is often badly edited. Their packaging, too, is very poor compared with other labels. (JTT/MC)
