I bought this cd because of the performance of the Who. They did six songs and I was blown away when I saw the show on the TV. Some of the performances were not for me but it was worth it for the Who.

Incomplete by design ... Jan. 15 2013
By JB - Published on Amazon.com
I wanted to point out that the decision to make this an incomplete document of the Sandy concert was already made before the concert itself took place:

From the NY Daily News on December 11, 2012: "Tickets sales from the Sandy concert alone have already raised $35 million. More money will be contributed by sales of a 24-track live CD from the event, to be released by Columbia Records. Tracks are available for pre-order on iTunes at itunes.com/121212."

It figures that once the suits got involved questionable decisions were made. Perhaps this was an unintentional poor decision on the part of Sony/Columbia and the concert organizers, but I'd prefer not to buy an abridged version of the concert today only to find that a complete "deluxe" DVD or CD box set is released in the near future. (If a full concert CD/DVD set is released I will buy it immediately.)

In the meantime it is certainly appropriate to contribute directly to the Robin Hood Foundation and other Sandy relief efforts, but I have a hard time lining Sony/Columbia's pockets even indirectly with this poorly thought out release.

It is a partial show... Jan. 4 2013
By Gizmo Sprocket - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I would have gladly paid more for the whole show... it's partial and feels incomplete. At least they left off Kanye's "contribution."

Hoping this version had what iTunes did not- Dec 19 2012
By Annie - Published on Amazon.com
Was really hoping that some of the gems left off the iTunes version would be here, but it must be the same release.
So no (almost) Nirvana, no My City in Ruins, no Born to Run or Livin' on a Prayer. I'm sad. It's a great album, but could have been truly awesome!

Seriously?! Dec 21 2012
By D. McCormick - Published on Amazon.com
Seriously?! They left off the main reason for buying it: the unique and historic things that happened during this concert, like Bruce and Bon Jovi singing Born to Run and Who Says You Can't Go Home together. Unbelievable. Will not buy.

Totally incomplete. Dec 20 2012
By Guy Incognito - Published on Amazon.com
This recording is missing some of the best songs of the night. No Tea and Theater by the Who, no Nirvana with Paul McCartney, etc. The CD is missing 1/2 the songs from what was a wonderful concert for a good cause. Shame. I will send a direct donation instead.
