All Music Guide - William Ruhlmann
This show, taped for MTV, finds Dylan turning in an 11-song set, with eight of the songs dating from his 1963-1967 heyday, including such standards as "The Times They Are A-Changin'" and "Like a Rolling Stone."

The '70s are represented by "Knockin' on Heaven's Door," and the '80s by "Shooting Star" and "Dignity" a trunk song, the studio version of which had emerged only the previous November on Bob Dylan's Greatest Hits, Vol. 3. Dylan, accompanied by a competent five-piece band, approaches his material in a gentler fashion than on some of the originals -- "The Times They...

Dylan, accompanied by a competent five-piece band, approaches his material in a gentler fashion than on some of the originals -- "The Times They Are A-Changin'" and "With God on Our Side," for example, seem sadder and less defiant than they did back in 1964. Otherwise, unlike some other Unplugged performances, this one doesn't offer a noticeably different view of the artist's work. But then, Dylan has been unplugged for much of his career, anyway.

    Mumblefest 1995

    I have most of Dylan's albums but gave this one away as I just can't stand the "Mumble Era" of his concerts. This is one to ignore, especially when there are so many other truly great concert albums available.

    Hip New Live Version of Dylan

    Dylan's M.T.V. Unplugged CD offers a hip, new version of such favorites as ''Like A Rolling Stone'' ''All Along the Watchtower'' and ''The Times They Are A Changin.'' Pretty up-beat and moving as always with Dylan.
