|Bruce Springsteen with The Sessions Band's tour last year prompted incredible reviews. The Washington Post declared, "It was the best live show I've seen in at least five years. (And I've seen a few)." The Independent (UK), said, "It's been an astonishingly rich evening."|
Bruce Springsteen with The Sessions Band Live in Dublin was produced by George Travis and produced and edited by Emmy Award winner Thom Zimny, who recently took home a Grammy Award for directing Wings for Wheels: The Making of Born to Run.

In addition, Live in Dublin includes new interpretations of the classics Atlantic City, Open All Night, Growin' Up, and Blinded by the Light.

Editor's NoteBruce Springsteen is certainly no stranger to acoustic-based, folk-inspired music. So it's not a shock that he would release a tribute album to folk icon Pete Seeger with 2006's WE SHALL OVERCOME: THE SEEGER SESSIONS. The album celebrates not just Seeger's musical influence, but also the political stands the singer took, which obviously resonate with the famously progressive Springsteen. And while the E Street Band may be absent, Bruce tackles Seeger's tunes in classic larger-than-life Boss style, with a huge band that includes several string players, a horn section, accordion, and more. Incorporating everything from Dixieland to zydeco into the folk/blues template, Bruce stirs up a rowdy cauldron of Americana teeming with as much pure human passion as social import. This program captures the Boss performing many of the album's tracks in a live concert recorded at Dublin's The Point during a three-night stand in November 2006.
