Well you see, that’s sorta what I’m getting at. What you wrote seems to imply that the inclusion of “Incident On 57th Street” in a show inherently sets the bar high. (A popular opinion which I never understood). So when Bruce so glaringly botches an iconic intro to a sacred song (as on this release), I dunno, it sorta automatically elicits a “sudden death” “go-directly-to-jail” response for me which immediately knocks this show out of the elite status of say 12/31/80 or 9/19/78.
But nonetheless this is overall a good show, and I welcome any 1999 release.
