Fourth of July, 1987, at Foxboro Stadium, I might be in the minority when I suggest that Dylan's forgotten words and muffled voice exemplify his confidence rather than his shortcomings. I enjoy the "Slow Train" on this album better than its underdeveloped sister studio song because Dylan's inflection and rawness give it the muscle that it lacked. Let's not forget about Garcia either, whose solo brilliance (I Want You) shines at times. Yes, the songs are loose and Dylan and Garcia are unsure at times when a solo should begin ("Serve Somebody"), but if Dylan has taught us anything, it is that art mimics life. This album is a fine example of that.
Bob Weir and Dylan peered cautiously over the edge of the stage, during "All Along the Watchtower" while Jerry was doing his solo spectacular at the beautiful young red-head, unconscious in the front row. She came to as the strains of "Knockin' on Heaven's Door" flowed over the crowd, a full moon rising over the stadium, the show culminating in a huge fireworks display
