I don't normally 'do' the 'Boss'...,
10 October 2012 | by (Salisbury, United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Somehow, that drawled, scraggy voice just lends itself and is transformed by mixing Irish ceilidh music and blues grass plus the really fantastic Sessions Band. You won't see or hear a better brass/horn section (well, I haven't!). Add fiddles galore, beautiful female vocals, pipes, slide guitars and assorted 'stuff' and you've got a wondrous mixture, which in its more heated moments, veers gloriously into free-for-all Dixie jazz!

It then goes onto Doo-Wop and gospel vocal styles plus some really natty boogie-woogie tinkling on the ivories. One's right foot soon needs a rest from tapping and so the left takes over... After 90 minutes, when most Live DVDs are ending, this one is just getting into the REAL swing of things...

But, there's also the easy-going and receptive Dublin crowd who chirp in tunefully and enthusiastically on the choruses, that make this one long and glorious Irish pub back-room romp, the sort where you feel that you know everybody and want to go home with them afterwards! If you've experienced such (as I have, in Cork) you'll know what I mean!

The sound quality is superb, as is the filming but it is the colourful and infectious music and its making that REALLY make you feel you are there. This is more party than gig and the good cheer keeps one buoyant for hours after (watch just before bed-time, you'll sleep well - and very pleasantly!).

Other reviewers may know the music better and, as my title infers, I actually rather dislike Springsteen in his usual guise - and I can't quite recall how I actually came to even contemplate buying this DVD, but am really glad I did - Sure, to be sure!
