Review:
This package is typical of the late 80s and early 90s releases by this
Label. There are a few nice black and white photos of the event, but
for the most part, it is simplistic. The IOW concert is historically
important, but not an incredibly inspired performance. It has never
been a favorite of mine. One reason is that there has never been an
incredible sounding tape of the entire show to circulate. Therefore, as
with all previous releases,  the Label gathers the various quality
recordings of each song from all sources. In this case, however there
are better circulating tapes than some of the quality represented here.
There is an extreme range of sound qualities from one song to the next.
The best quality tracks are those that are simply pirated from the
official release.

Review:
Studio outtakes from March-May 1981. Nice  quality. It’s taken from the soundboard, but from a fourth generation analog tape… so the quality isn’t crystal clear. There is a slight white noise throughout. Vocals are rarely up to proper mix level. This is a great collection for fans of the studio process outtake. Gospel era fans will have some interest as well. However, all should keep in mind that these are unfinished songs. Some are little more than ideas. There are no hidden ‘gems’ here that have missed official release, and those seeking the powerful Christian dogma of Saved will be disappointed. Highlights are the bosa nova tune Don’t Ever Take Yourself Away, and the bonus tracks. Comes complete with a 12page color, glossy booklet and essay. TheCD is printed with the full color cover photo.

    Thanks a lot for the Isle of Wight.
    While, all in all, it’s not Bob at his best, the gorgeous rendition of “Wild Mountain Thyme” (way better in my opinion than versions from other periods of his career) is what really makes it.
    Now to figure out how to open FLAC files…

    Thanks for the Saved/Shot stuff. I think this actually has some tracks that are new to me, which for a longtime Bobsessive is a lovely thing. The whole “born again” period is such a misunderstood span of Bob’s career.

    This human appreciates your music! If you like, stop by my blog and have a look ’round.

    “High Away” and “Is it Worth It” make “Between Saved and Shot” worth the price — no matter what the price may be.
