This dvd feautres the last two concerts on their reunion tour, held at Madison Square Garden. The bells are sometimes replaced with screaming guitars with make some songs a little bit more stiff but that's only a minor quibble.
Most of the versions here are great. If you want your moneys worth you have to got this dvd, one of the best musical-dvds out there. Long live the boss! Recorded over the course of the final two nights of the New York City stand in , this DVD set features the entire HBO broadcast and a bonus disc featuring another whole set of material. Taken collectively, the two discs are approximately the length of a typical concert during the - "Reunion" tour.
Casual fans will enjoy straight-forward renditions of some of his most well known songs such as Born to Run, Thunder Road, and Badlands. To keep it interesting for fans and for the band, some of the classics are presented in vastly different arrangements. The River is slowed down and fleshed out in an arrangement that would not be out of place in a film noir soundtrack.
Atlantic City and Mansion on the Hill both from 's Nebraska sound completely different as well. Atlantic City is delivered as a full throttled rocker and Mansion on the Hill sports a country feel.

Workman was eventually tried by the State of New Jersey for the Schultz murder and served 23 years in prison. In January , professional criminal and police informer Harry Rudolph was held as a material witness in the murder of year-old minor gangster Alex Alpert. Alpert was shot in the back on a street corner in the Brownsville section of Brooklyn on November 25, Eventually, Maffetore decided to cooperate, stating that he was not involved in the Alpert murder, but was the driver in six gangland murders.
Reles was next to cooperate with the District Attorney's office. Harry Rudolph's testimony was never used in any of the trials, as he died of natural causes in the infirmary at Rikers Island in June Harry Maione and Frank Abbandando were the first members of the Brooklyn "Combination" to be put on trial for murder.
In May , the trial started for the May 25, ice-pick murder of George "Whitey" Rudnick in a Brooklyn parking garage. After Rudnick was believed to have been murdered, Abbandando called for Reles and summoned Angelo "Julie" Catalano to the garage to assist with moving the body. Since Rudnick was still alive, Strauss resumed his assault with an ice pick, and Maione used a meat cleaver to complete the murder. On May 23, , Maione and Abbandando were convicted of first-degree murder, which meant a mandatory sentence of death in the electric chair.
Harry Strauss and Martin Goldstein were put on trial for the September 4, , strangulation murder of bookmaker Irving Feinstein , whose body was set on fire and left in a vacant lot after Feinstein had been strangled.
Reles's mother-in-law also testified that Reles and Strauss had asked her for an ice pick and clothesline earlier in the day and, while at the house, heard loud music masking a commotion in the living room.
She also testified hearing Strauss say that he had been bitten. Strauss's attorney claimed his client was insane. Strauss was briefly allowed on the witness stand but refused to take his oath and was "babbling incoherently" as he was led back to the defense table.
Strauss then began chewing on a leather strap of a briefcase. Charles Workman was indicted in New Jersey on March 27, , for the October 23, , murder of Dutch Schultz and three members of his gang.
Next, a female friend of slain gangster Danny Fields, who was described as a "collector for the payroll" of Lepke, testified that Workman showed up at her apartment the day after Schultz's murder and asked Fields to burn his clothes. The woman, who used a pseudonym on the witness stand, testified that Workman openly talked about the Schultz killing and how he was left behind in the restaurant.
Reles testified that Shuman was killed since he cooperated with the authorities who were conducting an inquiry of Lepke's involvement in labor racketeering. Seymour Magoon testified that he stole the car used in the murder on Reles's orders. Nitzberg, who was in the back seat, shot Shuman twice in the back of the head when Tannenbaum gave a predetermined signal. Tannenbaum and Nitzberg then exited the murder car to join Reles and another gangster in the getaway car and departed from the crime scene.
Rosen was murdered in Brooklyn on September 13, Jury selection for the trial began in August However, securing a jury for Lepke proved difficult. After enough jurors were finally selected, the trial actually started in October Supreme Court refused to hear Lepke's appeal in February Vito "Socko" Gurino was sought for questioning in the Brooklyn murder investigation as the member assigned to eliminate witnesses against the "Combination".
Liberto quickly exited through a window convinced he was going to be killed. It is filmed with twenty different cameras, so you catch every possible angle and all the energy of the crowd and band in perfect harmony together. This is the best of American music. I have seen the Boss and the E street Band, live, over sixty times and I can truly say this is the next best thing. It is a gift to yourself to go out and buy this dvd for yourselves.
You will be glad, over and over again! I bought this after watching the presentation on TV. I was wonderfullly surprised by the visual panorama of the video's 2 for teh concert, which were crystal clear, covering the entire stage, great close ups of the fingerwork, crowd span which was awesome to view, especially if you've been to Madison Square Garden in your life and the music selection by BS and the E Street Band was superb, although perhaps one or two of my personal favorites were not included, but hey, made up for in the overall 2 pack.
If you are even a remote fan of Bruce which admittedly I only am , this will still be a great addition to your music video collection, well worth the price. Anyone who loves Bruce Springsteen will not be disappointed.View credits, reviews, tracks and shop for the DVD release of Live In New York City on Discogs/5(2).
