bruce springsteen & the e street band: the legendary 1979 no nukes concerts (thom zimny, 2021)

There is some discussion about just how legendary these concerts were (the film is made from two nights). It's kind of pointless, though ... Bruce and the Band are terrific, it's 1979, what more needs to be said.  The restoration is strong, the sound unstoppable (thank you, Bob Clearmountain), the performances are ... well, they're late-70s Bruce, if you were there, you know, if you weren't, here's a fine example. I remember when the Darkness on the Edge of Town reissue came out, including a complete live show from 1978, I said I was glad the video existed, especially because it let me know it wasn't just nostalgia that made me think Bruce '78 was the best ... it was the best. This No Nukes concert film is like that ... it reminds us just how great he was when he turned 30.
