Only four tracks but all wonderfully different and Live which always brings the best of Bruce out. "BE TRUE" is the highlight here sounding pumped up and beefier than the recorded version to be found on Tracks, but let us not forget to mention the brilliant accoustic version of "BORN TO RUN"(a brave rendition of this song bearing in mind the significance of this track. The other two songs are also fantastic in their own right. "TOUGHER THAN THE REST" is sung beautifully with Patti Scialfa and Bob Dylan's "CHIMES OF FREEDOM" sounds great. Buy this title now, it's essential!

An emotional 4 song album. The acoustic version of Born To Run is more thought provoking than the original. and is a very powerful song. Also the best version of tougher Than The Rest that I have ever heard, with the gorgeous Patti doing a superb duet with her husband, the Boss!

What more can you say of Bruce except that he's a musical genius and a people's hero?
This is a 4 track ep featuring 4 stunning live versions of 3 popular Boss classics plus a rockish rendition of Dylan's standard from the 60s.
A note for collectors: though the vinyl edition features a different pic of the Boss on the cover, the tracklists are the very same on both the formats.

I can't agree with the previous 2 star review. This CD contains what for me is the definitive version of Tougher Than The Rest - far more powerful than the studio version on Tunnel of Love. Chimes of Freedom is also a worthy addition to any Bruce collection whilst the acoustic Born to Run is interesting if understandably not as powerful as the original. If you are a Bruce fan and you haven't got this CD yet then I suggest that you buy it!

all the songs on this cd are fantastic in thier original studio form but this is an amazing treat for those who like something a little different from "The Boss". This is right up there as one of his best works!

Let's be clear, the reason to purchase this disc is Springsteen's stunning live version of Dylan's "Chimes of Freedom", although the other tracks are also good. Recorded in Stockholm during the "Tunnel of Love" tour in 1988, the Boss takes a classic Dylan track (also covered by other noticable artists such as the Byrds) and delivers the definitive version of this song. For Springsteen fans a must-buy - this spong encapsulates the spirit of the Boss - just listen to the lyrics - this song could have been written for Bruce.

The more live material the better as any Bruce fan would agree. A collection of four live tracks from the Tunnel of Love tour. Included are Be True and Dylan's Chimes Of Freedom not to mention Bruce's own keynote Born to Run(acoustic). If your a fan of rock music or live material this is essential stuff.

Superb selection of songs. Wonderful to hear the upbeat rock treatment of the superb Chimes of Freedom, a Bob Dylan classic. And Tougher than the Rest is a superb rendition of his own work. All 4 songs are recorded live. A real gem of a CD, even if it only has 4 songs on it. Bruce, you remain the best!!

The version of Chimes of Freedom is fantastic, as is the acoustic version of Born to Run. It is like a new song but with all the background knowledge of the original.. it has taken me too long to catch up with these songs, but proves yet again he is amazing
