1.0 out of 5 stars Not brilliant!, 18 Sep 2009

It is a bit odd to hear him getting those hoarse vocals around "Froggie Went A-Courting" or the "too-rye-aye" chorus of "Mrs McGrath" - for me, the least successful song here (although "Shenandoah" is a little ropey). But overall, it works well. The DVD is a brief documentary of the musicians performing with Springsteen at his… Read more
