Product Description

Product Description

2001 two CD live release from the Rock icon. This set documents Springsteen and the E Street Band's highly successful 1999-2000 Reunion Tour, their first concert tour together in 11 years.


If Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band were a playground basketball team they'd be the one made up of local legends that don't have as much spring in their legs as the young bucks, but get by on guts and guile. Culled from the two Madison Square Garden shows that closed out the revived E Street Band's 1999-2000 road show, this 20-song collection deftly entwines fan favorites with fresher material, including two new offerings, the stately "Land of Hope and Dreams" and the solemn "American Skin"--the latter prompted by the shooting of unarmed New Yorker Amadou Diallo by police officers. When Springsteen and company (including both Miami Steve Van Zandt and his successor, Nils Lofgren, on guitar) look back, they temper the force of the original arrangements with ingenuity and a sense of spacing. The E Street Band in their heyday may have served up four-hour marathons, but they felt stopwatch-tight. Here Springsteen reconciles his rocker and reflective sides as "The River" curves along through a serpentine course, "Mansion on the Hill" is given a curious (albeit lovely) Hawaiian treatment, and "Born in the U.S.A." resurfaces as a deep-blues lament. The gang can still muster a take-no-prisoners attack, as witnessed by the hard-charging likes of "Two Hearts" and "Tenth Avenue Freeze-Out." --Steven Stolder

A live album like this one has been missing from Bruce Springsteen's catalogue. More restrained than the 3½-hour "Live 1975-85", and, well, better than "MTV (un)Plugged", "Live In New York" really shows what an evening out with Bruce and the Band is like.
There aren't too many single hits here, rather a collection of fan favorites and obscurities, so "Live In New York" is probably not for the most casual Springsteen fans.
But more experienced fans will be delighted by tough, sweaty, sincere renditions of "Out In The Street", "Prove It All Night", "Badlands", "Two Hearts" and many more, and the two new songs are excellent, particularly "41 Shots".
An uncredited "Born To Run" is tucked away on disc 1, and it sounds great, filled with urgency and conviction. The E-Street Band is magnificent, and Springsteen's vocals are good, too (even if he sounds a little out of breath on a couple of occations). Listen to his almost-acapella rendition of the first two verses of "Mansion On The Hill", and the sincerity with which he delivers the solemn "American Skin (41 Shots)".
(And his gospel preacher-bit during "Tenth Avenue Freeze-Out" is pretty funny.)
This may not be an essential addition to Bruce Springsteen's catalogue, and the casual admirer will find that the hits are missing (which they are), but if you're a fan it's hard not to warm to this raw, sincere performance.

In 1984 Bruce Springsteen's Born in the USA album sold 18 million copies. The man whose fans saw him as an avatar of the spirits of Walt Whitman, Woody Guthrie, Jack Kerouac and John Steinbeck was suddenly a pop star. And it wasn't by accident.
The songs slotted right into hit radio and commercial ambitions had put a close up of Mr. Springsteen's rear-end, in tight jeans, on the album cover. But the huge American flag that framed the shot of Springsteen's ... was there because Springsteen still hoped, in a Whitmanesque way, to persuade America to call itself to account for the distance between its harsh realities and its legitimating myths of freedom and equality.
But pop stars aren't taken that seriously and most people missed the point. The title track of Born in the USA is a radical critique of American society. But when Ronald Regan, whose conservative politics Springsteen loathed, used it in his election campaign, most of Springsteen's new fans didn't see the contradiction.
In 1995 Springsteen made a decisive break with hit radio and pop stardom with the visionary Ghost of Tom Joad. Inspired by Steinbeck's Grapes of Wrath, each of its deeply moving and politically radical songs is about people battling against the odds to make some kind of life for themselves and their families. The album manages to simultaneously mourn social injustice and affirm the resilience of the human spirit. And because Springsteen dispensed with sing-along choruses and laid his half spoken half sung lyrics over evocative soundscapes it's impossible to misunderstand the vision of the album.
But, while many critics regard the Ghost of Tom Joad as one of the greatest American albums ever, it was far too good for hit radio and didn't win a mass audience.

blame it on a hasty production job. that's probably all it was, and why the album sounds awful at times. but if you are a springsteen fan, you will definitely appreciate this collection of songs. however...
tenth-avenue doesn't get better no matter how hard you try to like it (and patti's voice sounds much better on her album than in the middle of this song)...
youngstown just explodes with the guitar solo at the end!!...
the river is WAY too long...
why isn't born to run credited??...
the new version of born in the usa is kinda neat actually...
i love the way bruce's voice sounds on mansion on the hill...
and to close out the album, if i should fall behind is truly great. every member of the band is different in ways that are breathtaking: bruce's voice is raspy, clarence's is deep, steve's is soulful, nils' is angelic, and patti's is tender. they all come together to create a very beautiful, touching sound.
LINYC may take awhile to get used to, but trust me, you won't regret the experience!

Like Live 1975-1985, his previous live album with the E Street Band, this album is criticized for what it is not. At least the first set tried to be a career retrospective, even if it was heavily weighted towards the stadium shows of the mid 80s. In this case, I believe that the complaints are valid- the structuring of the CD and the missing songs from Bruce's Reunion tour concerts are quite frustrating. Would it have been so difficult to release an entire, minimally edited concert? Given Bruce's intensely loyal following, and the lengths that some of his fans go to obtain shoddy-sounding bootlegs, I think that a 3-disc set with an entire show would have sold just as many copies, and have satisfied many of his longtime fans. At this point in his career, I don't think that Springsteen is trying to win new fans with his live releases, so there's no need to "dumb down" the CD. Based on numbers, it looks like this CD sold only to a select group of fans (as opposed to "The Rising", with sales in the millions)- I'm sure many of us would have paid a few more dollars for a third CD. Why he refuses to release an entire concert, or better yet, a series of them highlighting his many historic tours, is beyond me and a source of great frustration to many of his fans. There is clearly a market for his live releases, but the one man who could do it seems reluctant at best, and completely opposed at worst. Hopefully the trends started by bands like The Dead, Pearl Jam, Dave Matthews, The Who, Phish and even Dylan with his bootleg series, will make cut-and-paste live albums like this obsolete. Overall, you get the feeling that this album is somewhat sloppily assembled, and at the very least lacks the nearly obsessive attention which Bruce devotes to his other releases.Read more ›
