This is a great one. All songs from this period you wanna listen to. The sound can be a bit thin sometimes, could be heavier on the bass. But thats about it. Songs you can hardly ever here in this lineup besides the hall of fame concerts. I still remember seen some of these live on TV. Good memories!
What's all the negative fuss? If you want to hear Bob sing these songs,go buy HIS albums,otherwise avoid this set. It is so refreshing to hear other people interpret these songs. They are,I think, done tastefully, and like any album set like this there will be a couple of songs you wont take to first time around but give it time and these too will grow on you. Also younger generations would do well to listen to this set. I remember I went to a Dylan concert in Sydney Australia and he changed the tempo and the style of his songs. People were getting up and leaving and I couldn't see why. He was showing that he wasn't stuck in the same old rut and I thoroughly enjoyed it. These same people,sadly, have missed the point. As I said before "IF YOU WANT TO HEAR DYLAN SING LIKE DYLAN GO ... full review

"A Pocket Full of Hope" - By Lee Armstrong (Winterville, NC United States)
"Instant Karma, the Amnesty International Campaign to Save Darfur" is a good set of John Lennon covers. I believe John would have been proud of this effort to use his music to draw attention & bring relief to the people of this area. In musical terms, it's more successful than the "Working Class Hero" covers compilation that came out some years ago. Of the tracks, I have two favorites from each of the discs. Corinne Bailey Rae brings a new feel to "I'm Losing You" with a more piano-based arrangement in a live recording. Her powerhouse vocals are distinctive, "Here in the valley of indecision; I don't know what to do; I feel you slipping away." Jakob Dylan featuring Dhani Harrison do a great job on "Gimme Some Truth" with Harrison's guitar bleeding during the instrumental break & Jakob's voice sounding world weary, "No ... full review
"High Hopes Has High Points And Low" - By Darren O'Neill (Chicago, IL)
I have been a fan of the Boss since I was in junior high and "Born In The USA" came out. I was instantly hooked and got my hands on every disc in his back catalog and devoured each and every track. Since then I've been pretty happy with his releases with the notable exception of "Devils and Dust" which I thought fell far short of the mark. Here on "High Hopes" we really get a few gems mixed in with a decent amount of filler.
One thing that I have always respected about Springsteen is that he will work tirelessly on an album and he wouldn't release it until he thought it was done. With that attitude he's released some great albums and also has collected a bunch of great songs that just didn't fit the vibe of a given album. With that ... full review
"What a Beautiful Treasure! Intimate and touching...very nice" - By Brian (Washington DC)
This is an wonderfully beautiful live offering from Neil Young - an early offering from the After The Gold Rush days live at The Cellar Door in Washington D.C in late 1970 - it's a solo performance - just Neil with his guitar and piano.. I live in the area and used to go to The Cellar Door years ago...and it was always one of my favorite venues for a performance - small, intimate and very personal...and that's what this CD offers - an intimate and very personal concert with Neil doing some of his finest solo work and some real gems from his Buffalo Springfield days - boy, I wish I had seen this show, it would've been one for the ages..........
There are several tracks on this - like Expecting To Fly, Birds, Don't Let It Bring You Down, and I Am a Child - that will ... full review
Think you must be correct about the time of the Showtime version verses the DVD/BD release, JB. This is a post from the Bruce fanzine Backstreets' site: "Eagle Rock Entertainment will release Springsteen & I in DVD and Blu-Ray formats on October 29. Based on what the audience saw at the recent big-screen Blu-Ray preview benefiting The Friends of The Bruce Springsteen Special Collection, the DVD/Blu-Ray will include everything featured in the film's initial theatrical screenings in July. That would be the complete documentary, six filmed performances from the 2012 Hard Rock Calling show (including Paul McCartney's appearance) and a brief, funny and moving epilogue to the documentary that involves Bruce meeting some of the fans featured in the film. As an additional bonus feature, there also will be several more fan-submitted clips that didn't make the final cut of Springsteen & I. The clips will be viewable in a ... full review

"NOT the versions I watched in the U.S. 25 years ago...." - By Charles Ballard (Saint Louis, Mo, USA)
I bought these through another source, I'll admit that up front. They didn't say on their web-site that these weren't the versions originally cut for U.S. release back in the 80's. I desperately wanted to see Neil Innes performing, "Urban Spaceman" again. But it's not here. Not even in the EXTRAS. There are some things I don't remember seeing back then, and some of them are pretty note-worthy (I can't swear to seeing a pre-Dr. Who Sylvester McCoy do his red-hat and strip to his tidy-whiteys escape routine back then... but that was 25 years ago... the little gray cells are the first thing to go!!). If they ever want to make a decent amount of money for Amnesty, I suggest they gather up all the bits that were shown in the U.S. version but left out of this, the original british (international?) version, ... full review
