So, so what if four songs are missing, and a few other are substantially cut? So, so what if the high right balcony vantage point above a huge speaker means that we never see Kemper and rarely see Tony or Bucky?

So, what?! Schubert was in the house, and you can close your eyes as the stills go by. And when you open them, you'll see as fine a performance as any nay sayer has a right to enjoy. And, as an added bonus, you'll see Springsteen side men Little Steven and Nils Lofgren sit in on as great a cover of "Not Fade Away" as you'll ever hear short of Buddy coming back to lead the band.

You don't believe me, then check this out:

Oh, Momma! Who's the boss?

Did I say 5 Stars?
