Finnish press was not interested in Dylan's performance in Turku 1990. I don't know if that has anything to do with the fact that it took six years before Dylan came to Finland again and after so long time he came to Jazz Festival and performed only a mini set. Still it was interesting, because we don't hear songs like Shake Sugaree anymore.
