Bruce Springsteen on the Big Screen

So… it was a fun evening. They put us in the largest standard theater (not the IMAX) and filled about 90% of it. The first 45 minutes (approximately… I couldn’t really read my watch) was the documentary on the making of “Born to Run”. For all Springsteen fans, this is a must see. My favorite moment and the loudest laugh from the audience came when Bruce was talking about “10th Avenue Freeze Out” saying that to this day he has no idea what that phrase means. There were lots of bits and pieces from the recording sessions along with current Bruce (and E Street members), a la VH1 Story Tellers, talking about the significance of the songs. We then got about 40 minutes from the live ’75 concert that is on the DVD. The songs included, “Saint in the City”, “She’s the One”, “Rosalita”, the Detroit Medley and “Quarter to Three”. The fire and the energy of this young Boss was just so much fun to watch. I can’t wait to see the whole DVD. And in case you have been living under a rock and didn't know, tomorrow (Tuesday) Bruce Springsteen's "Born to Run" will be re-released with DVDs of the documentary mentioned above and more of that live show from England.
