AllMusic Review by

Above the crackling hiss, muffled voices, and passing streetcars is the typical media probing, a paneled inquisition into the mind of Bob Dylan that is met with biting sarcasm and general disinterestedness. It takes place in San Francisco subsequent to the release of Highway 61 Revisited, which spurs some questions about the identity of Mr. Jones or the symbolic meaning of the cover itself, but otherwise the content is political or banal -- or both. There's a bit less vinegar here than in his Don't Look Back encounters, but he makes up for that by playing the jester and mystic. When asked whether he considers himself primarily a songwriter or poet, Dylan quips that he thinks of himself more as a "song and dance man." It has its interesting moments, although the sound quality is far from superior, making this 50-minute interview disc essential listening for the Dylanologist only.
