Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

The last time Bruce Springsteen gave up E Street for Folk Street, the band of fiddles, banjos, and accordions--sans audience--was recording 2006's We Shall Overcome: The Seeger Sessions in the informality of his living room. This time the Boss takes his American-music foray to Ireland for a three-night stint on the north quay of Dublin's River Liffey. The 23 songs drawn from those performances cover most of the songs from the Pete Seeger tribute, but venture drastically into Springsteen's popular back catalog ("Atlantic City," "Highway Patrolman," "Blinded By the Light") while delving further into his affinity for multiple styles of music, from folk and blues to gospel and country. "If I Should Fall Behind" plays like a tear-jerking last call in a dimly lit pub. "Open All Night" has been shaped into pure swing, complete with pedal steel and sax. And "Jesse James," with its furious banjo, spectator handclaps, and Springsteen howl, could pass for the Pogues, circa 1985. A simultaneously released DVD uses nine cameras to capture every sweat-beaded highlight, from the tin whistle of "Further Up the Road" to an arena bursting out in a "We Shall Overcome" singalong. --Scott Holter

5.0 out of 5 stars Powerful, raucous, joyful, heartbreaking July 12, 2007
Format:Audio CD
I'll echo the other reviewers and say that this is undoubtedly the best live CD I've ever heard, a testament to a combination of the music, lyrics, players, and timeliness of the message.

Springsteen is almost impossible to review, but I'll just say that, as much as I loved the Rising, Live in Barcelona, and Devils and Dust, the Seeger Sessions and this live album have taken him into a musical stratosphere that maybe only Bob Dylan and Willie Nelson can touch -- pure Americana.

Most of the other reviewers have adequately pointed out the highlights, but I'll say that the mournful dirge that the band transformed "When the Saints Come Marching In" to made tears stream down my face when I first heard this version, especially as it comes in the set after "How Can a Poor Man Stand Such Times and Live". Folk music is as relevant as it ever was.

If you like any strain of Americana roots music -- blues, folk, jazz, gospel, Western swing, roots country, mountain/Scots/Irish music -- this concert will blow you away and make you sing with the crowd.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic; Joyful June 8, 2007
By Jim
Format:Audio CD
Watched the DVD last night and I am just blown away by how great this is. The band is amazing, and they are enjoying the music as much as I have ever seen any band enjoy themselves. Bruce is in great form and this CD/DVD proves once again how versitile and talented he is. It is rare for a artist to sucessfully create a project that is outside what made him or her famous, but Bruce knocks it out of the park on this one.

Another great thing about this music (Bruce's as well as the folk classics) is that it appeals to a huge range of people. This is the first music ever that I can think of that my parents, my wife and my young kids enjoy.

Another great thing about this CD/DVD is the Irish crowd. They are top notch as usual.

Rumor has it that Bruce's next project is with the E Street band. I can't wait to see what that brings, but at the same time, I hope Bruce works with the Sessions Band again soon.

Buy this CD/DVD, you will not be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Seeger Sessions Songs Come Alive June 8, 2007
Format:Audio CD
I saw Bruce Springsteen's Seeger Sessions concert last year at the PNC Bank Arts Center in NJ and it was an interesting, uplifting show. This live collection perfectly captures that feeling. While I prefer Mr. Springsteen's straight rock concerts, the show was raucous and big departure from his other solo work which are intimate acoustic settings. The cd from which the concerts emanated from was an excellent recreation of the turn of the century musically stylings, but the live show bring out the songs true heart and soul. Mr. Springsteen really cuts loose and you can hear and feel the fun he is having. Backing by a seventeen-piece band, the songs have a carnival, music hall sound. There are some songs from Mr. Springsteen's own catalog that get reworkings, most notably "Open All Night" which is a radical departure from the original Nebraska version. All in all, this two-disk set (there's a deluxe edition which includes a dvd of the show) is great way to experience this different Springsteen concert.

5.0 out of 5 stars What Fun! June 7, 2007
Format:Audio CD
While many musicians become more narrow and stereotyped as they get older, Bruce Springsteen has constantly worked to reinvent himself again and again over his 40 years of performing. I loved Bruce and the E Street Band. Although it may be blasphemy to some, I believe this incarnation of the Sessions band is every bit their equal. The growth and integration since the Seeger Sessions CD is fascinating. "Live In Dublin" is a fabulous performance by a virtuoso band who play with infectious enthusiasm. My only regret is that this performance documents the end of the tour. On the other hand, I can't wait to see where Bruce will go next.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best live CD I've ever heard July 11, 2007
Format:Audio CD
The Boss doesn't make bad CDs or bad concerts, I am told. I've wanted to hear him in concert since I heard his first songs. I actually was getting tickets to one of the shows that got cancelled due to a band member's illness and he's come to two cities--after I've left them. If I never make it, this CD is better than a lot of the live shows that I have been lucky enough to see.

I miss the E Street Band, but the Sessions Band he's gathered for this effort is excellent. His backup singers are soulful and the 17 piece band can handle anything from swing to Irish without missing a beat.

"Varied" is a mild description for this CD. Anyone else did this kind of concert, you'd have mixed reviews. Bruce can put folk next to swing next to gospel and then turn around and rock the house without ticking people off. He's also going international, doing American music right next to Irish traditional ballads and it appears the Dublin audience is eating it up.

Bruce breathes new life into the music here. I grew up hearing "Jesse James" but it wasn't like this. And "Jacob's Ladder" sure isn't what I heard in church.

He's also taken "Blinded by the Light" which was one of the first Bruce songs I heard and breathed new life into the live version.

"How can a poor man stand such times and live?" is one of the most heartwrenching protest songs I've heard. He really took the comments about the Dixie Chicks "Shut up and sing" to heart.

I don't like usually live CDs most of the time. Hate the staticky sussurus of the applause in the background and some idiot has got to yell the performer's name at least once per song. "Live in Dublin" is beautifully engineered. You get the 'feel' of the hall and the voices of the audience joining Bruce in song, yet the really annoying audience noise is minimized.
