Editors’ Notes

Though Bruce Springsteen has always been an impeccable solo acoustic performer, he opted to perform electric and with a band (not The E Street Band, it should be noted) for the MTV series Unplugged. So after a quick run-through of the previously unreleased track “Red Headed Woman,” Bruce plugged in and ran through a set heavy on his then-current albums, Human Touch and Lucky Town. “Better Days” and “Lucky Town” catch fire. “I Wish I Were Blind” is riveting. “If I Should Fall Behind” and “My Beautiful Reward” are touching without lapsing into sentimentality. A scorching version of “Light of Day,” which Springsteen wrote for the movie of the same name, highlights the set. Classics such as “Darkness on the Edge of Town,” “Thunder Road,” and “Atlantic City” could use the boost of The E Street Band (only keyboardist Roy Bittan and wife Patti Scialfa kept their jobs), but it’s interesting to hear the songs in what can be considered alternate arrangements.

Customer Reviews

EXCELLENT

This was a GREAT Live Collection from the MTV Unplugged Series. Bruce decided that he didn't want it to be an acoustic show so he ROCKED the House. The songs Pull over better Live. Highlights from the Human Touch/Lucky Town albums that were released at the same time. No E Street Band this time around which is not bad. This era gave Bruce to grow in a different direction. Stand out songs are "Light Of Day", all 10 min. of this with a Great Guitar Solo by Bruce. Other Highlights include, "If I Should Fall Behind" and "My Beautiful Reward." This live set has stood the test of time and a great time capsule showing off the 90's version of Bruce Springsteen.

So Great

My favorite song ever is Bruce's acoustic version of Thunder Road on this album. It is so poetic, calm, soothing and meaningful…it gives me chills every time I listen to it. I am a 16 year old and I wish I was alive back when this happened, and even back further, too. Bruce is amazing, and this album is a must-have for fans. I heard his version of this in a car ride a while back and have been searching for it ever since. I am so glad I finally found it.

Whole Show

This could have been a nice live treat for fans of Springsteen during his HT/LT albums. I'm not sure why they didn't include all the songs that were peformed on this night. Make it two discs. Most folks don't like this band but they were pretty good.. Real World from HT is one of Bruce's best songs lyrically speaking.
