2.0 out of 5 stars Incomplete by design ... January 15, 2013
By JB
Format:MP3 Music
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars It is a partial show... January 4, 2013
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
I would have gladly paid more for the whole show... it's partial and feels incomplete. At least they left off Kanye's "contribution."

3.0 out of 5 stars Hoping this version had what iTunes did not- December 19, 2012
By Annie
Format:MP3 Music
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!

2.0 out of 5 stars Seriously?! December 21, 2012
Format:MP3 Music
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.

1.0 out of 5 stars Totally incomplete. December 20, 2012
Format:MP3 Music
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars 12-12-12 January 10, 2013
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
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.

1.0 out of 5 stars Missing Most of the Show January 22, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
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.
