Customer Reviews

Saw the concert and had to get the music.
NDalum1979
With very little practice by the artists, 99.9% of this music is incredible renditions of some great songs.

If you buy it, you will enjoy but you will feel like there is something missing.

I wanted to point out that the decision to make this an incomplete document of the Sandy concert was already made before the concert itself took place:

From the NY Daily News on December 11, 2012: "Tickets sales from the Sandy concert alone have already raised $35 million. More money will be contributed by sales of a 24-track live CD from the event, to be released by Columbia Records. Tracks are available for pre-order on iTunes at itunes.com/121212."

It figures that once the suits got involved questionable decisions were made. Perhaps this was an unintentional poor decision on the part of Sony/Columbia and the concert organizers, but I'd prefer not to buy an abridged version of the concert today only to find that a complete "deluxe" DVD or CD box set is released in the near future. (If a full concert CD/DVD set is released I will buy it immediately.)

In the meantime it is certainly appropriate to contribute directly to the Robin Hood Foundation and other Sandy relief efforts, but I have a hard time lining Sony/Columbia's pockets even indirectly with this poorly thought out release.

I would have gladly paid more for the whole show... it's partial and feels incomplete. At least they left off Kanye's "contribution."

Was really hoping that some of the gems left off the iTunes version would be here, but it must be the same release.
So no (almost) Nirvana, no My City in Ruins, no Born to Run or Livin' on a Prayer. I'm sad. It's a great album, but could have been truly awesome!

Seriously?! They left off the main reason for buying it: the unique and historic things that happened during this concert, like Bruce and Bon Jovi singing Born to Run and Who Says You Can't Go Home together. Unbelievable. Will not buy.

This recording is missing some of the best songs of the night. No Tea and Theater by the Who, no Nirvana with Paul McCartney, etc. The CD is missing 1/2 the songs from what was a wonderful concert for a good cause. Shame. I will send a direct donation instead.

Pros:

1) No Kanye
2) Who Are You is uncensored
3) Roger Waters & Eddie Vedder
4) Proceeds go to charity

Cons:

1) Not the complete show
2) One could argue the song selection
3) No Nirvana reunion, probably because it will be released on Sound City - Real to Reel

Overall:

Good music for a good cause. Buy it now.

Omission of Kanye West is a good reason to buy it, solid cd for a low price and a great cause. Highly recommend this cd.

This CD has some great music on it, and classic performances, but it is lacking the majority of the original songs. I honestly would have paid much more to get a more complete album.
