Blood Brothers: Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band (2000)

*** 1/2 (out of 4)

I can't imagine any fan of Bruce Springsteen being disappointed with this wonderful behind-the-scenes look at the making of his Greatest Hits album. Not only do the tracks have to be picked but the E Street Band are brought back into the studio for the first time since the Born in the U.S.A. days so that they can add some new tracks for the album. Fans of Springsteen and his marvelous band are certainly going to love this look of what it's like in the recording studio. Fans are going to get treated to some "new" material like Secret Garden, Back in Your Arms, High Hopes (which wouldn't get officially released until 2014), Murder Incorporated and This Hard Land. It's fascinating getting to see Springsteen as he works these lyrics into workable music and one of the best moments happens during a vote on how to present Secret Garden, which turned out to be a huge hit when it would get released. Another great segment was when they were talking about which tracks to include on a Greatest Hits album and there's a wonderful joke about what would happen if Thunder Road was left off. There's no question that there are some wonderfully entertaining moments here and most of them deal with all the things in the recording studio. It's pretty amazing to hear how long it was since the band had played together but they hit it off right from the start.
