Format: DVD
My preorder off the NY/Warners website just arrived today. Just finished watching the first two of three DVDs, the two devoted to the concert performances themselves. The third, as the Amazon description aptly describes here, is a behind-the-scenes look at the school itself and the parents and kids, all of whom benefit from the proceeds of this purchase. Each performance is introduced by these 'complex' kids, a moving testament itself to the great work done by the Bridge School. You can sense their excitement as they take turns priming us for a string of amazing performances by a mind-blowing lineup of talent.

It's hard to know where to begin. Each incredible performance just whets your appetite for a full-length set, or full concert videos. Highlights abound but surprisingly for me, the songs done by Metallica, Disposable Heroes, and Dave Matthews, Too Much, really stood out. Don't get me wrong. I'm not even an album buying fan of either artist, but their incredible energy made these acoustic performances sizzle. Other artists including Bob Dylan, Tom Waits, Tom Petty, Bruce Springsteen, and Patti Smith (and of course a 1989 version of 'Crime in the City' by Neil) put on great shows. Bands like The Who, Pearl Jam, R.E.M., The Pretenders, and Brian Wilson's version of the Beach Boys' 'Surfin USA', are great fun to watch. Duets by Emmylou & Buddy Miller, Gillian Welch and Dave Rawlings, Elton John & Leon Russell, and of course, Simon & Garfunkel, who do a crazy-ass great version of 'America', are all fine as a superbly aged wine. I'd go on but I'm still letting it all sink in and a second viewing is imminent.

Slam dunk recommendation. Just buy this and/or better still, buy a ticket to the Benefit if you're within striking distance of Mtn. View.

I thought the 1997 Bridge School concert album was very, very good. This two CD set is even better!
You get:

Disc 1:
1. Born in the U.S.A. - Bruce Springsteen
2. Too Much - Dave Matthews Band
3. Magic's in the Makeup - No Doubt
4. Gone - Jack Johnson
5. Blue Ridge Mountains - Fleet Foxes
6. Love and Only Love - Neil Young & Crazy Horse
7. Rain on Tin - Sonic Youth
8. Better Man - Pearl Jam
9. The Way it Will Be - Gillian Welch

Disc 2:
1. Elsewhere - Sarah McLachlan
2. Get Back - Paul McCartney
3. A Dream Come True - Elton John & Leon Russell
4. Marry Song - Band of Horses

7. The Difficult Kind - Sheryl Crow

11. I was Dancing in the Lesbian Bar - Jonathan Richman (of the Modern Lovers & There's Something About Mary
12. Surfin' USA - Brian Wilson (of the Beach Boys
13. Won't Get Fooled Again - the Who

Springsteen, McCartney, the Who, Tony Bennett, No Doubt, Pearl Jam, Neil Young (with Crazy Horse and CSNY and REM), Brian Wilson, Jonathan Richman - all great performances! Norah Jones, Sheryl Crow, and Sarah McLachlan are outstanding as well. An excellent collection of excellent acoustic performances. A definite keeper.

If you're unfamiliar with it, the Bridge School Concerts are an annual event set up by Neil Young and his wife to help pay for the programs at the non-profit Bridge School, which helps children with severe speech & physical impairments.

Do yourself (and the kids) a favor. Pick this up today!

Thanks to NPR.com and The Bridge School, for the past two hours, I have been listening to the early listen of this extraordinary compilation of the some of the best music and musicians of the past 50 years! The sound quality is magnificent! I attended the M.U.S.E Concert at this venue (Mountain View CA) this past September and some of the songs have the exact acoustical reproduction that puts me back into the arena! I can't wait to see the DVD's Great music, great historical album, and money to a GREAT cause. Buy ten and give them away to friends and relatives and strangers this coming holiday season. Peace

I have long waited for this DVD release and I was pleasantly surprised with both the quality of the sound and the video. I don't believe, and please correct me if I'm wrong, that was Neil's intention to capture these events for future packaging and resale. Given this, the videography was better than I expected and the sound more than adequate. The way the DVD is structured doesn't make this a perfect viewing experience as artists have a single song to perform and the result is somewhat choppy and the performances are a little uneven...These are very small complaints - It's a great cause by a great artist..Buy it and enjoy it yourself...

This is an outstanding concert DVD. The history of the Bridge School is explored
from its beginning (am amazing story in itself) and interspersed with the amazing concerts that have taken place. The various artists are introduced by the Bridge School students themselves. The human spirit knows no bounds. It's just an A+ DVD.
