Bridge School Collection on iTunes


Within my own memory banks, some of the great tracks there are Billy Idol doing "For What It's Worth" and Dave Matthews and Neil Young doing "Cortez the Killer". The latter track will cost you $60 as it is marked "album only", which seems rather crazy applied to 80 tracks -- buy 78 tracks, get two free! The Bridge School concerts are good, but I'll have to decide whether or not they are $60 good.

I'm sure there are other great tracks in there as well, but from my limited attendance I do know that there's plenty missing, including Trent Reznor's set from this year, Paul McCartney singing "Hey Jude" with the audience, Dave Matthews and Neil Young doing "All Along the Watchtower", and Neil Young and the audience doing "Imagine". I don't know if these are awaiting a future release, stuck in licensing issues, or what. With Pearl Jam releasing full recordings of their concerts within 24 hours, I thought we were finally in an age where it might finally be possible to have it all. But at least with iTunes, we have 4x as many tracks as were previously available.

Concert: Bridge School


My first Bridge School concert. Worth every penny/hundred dollar bill. Bring pants next time. Pearl Jam was a big disappointment, seeing as I came mostly to see them. They hadn't played together in awhile, and it showed. They were also playing some new songs that I didn't think were particularly good, and they were also in a rush to get up to Seattle with REM for another concert.

Billy Idol was definitely the highlight of the night, especially for his theatrics and for the way that he performed for the Bridge School children, performing his sexually charged lyrics directly to them. In an acoustic concert where most artists interepret that to mean their hit songs, but slower, having Billy Idol going full blast was a big energy booster and got everyone going.
