Barnes & Noble - David Sprague
If the secret to good comedy is timing, the key to pulling together a good live album is editing -- an undoubtedly torturous process for this excellent two-disc set culled from hours of exciting performances. Remarkably, the presentation here is every bit as moving and memorable as the original concert, from the first notes of David Bowie's sparse, gripping version of Paul Simon's "America" to the sing-along coda of Paul McCartney's freshly minted "Freedom." Whether it was the emotion of the evening or the support of the enthusiastic crowd, just about all of the classic rock icons who joined in this tribute to Gotham's heroes turned in spectacular performances.

Remarkably, the presentation here is every bit as moving and memorable as the original concert, from the first notes of David Bowie's sparse, gripping version of Paul Simon's "America" to the sing-along coda of Paul McCartney's freshly minted "Freedom." Whether it was the emotion of the evening or the support of the enthusiastic crowd, just about all of the classic rock icons who joined in this tribute to Gotham's heroes turned in spectacular performances. The Who, a palpable favorite of the thousands of uniformed personnel in the crowd, are represented by a trio of hard-charging tunes, capped by a screaming "Won't Get Fooled Again." Fellow survivors Mick Jagger and Keith Richards also pull out all the stops, particularly on a suitably heartfelt "Salt of the Earth." The apocalyptic imagery of Billy Joel's altogether appropriate "Miami 2017" is guaranteed to raise a few goose bumps, as is, for very different reasons, the a cappella gospel medley turned in by Destiny's Child. And just to balance out the heaviness, the producers peppered the set with interludes like Adam Sandler's fist-pumpingly profane "Operaman" routine and the impromptu “Kiss my Irish ass!” monologue that made fireman Mike Moran a cult hero. But the best reason to own this piece of history? Proceeds from sales of the set go to the Robin Hood Relief Fund benefiting victims of the September 11th tragedy.

    Powerful messages

    If there is anything that really MAKES a tribute it is hope. Bon Jovi offer hope on this album with a few simple words from their song "livin on a prayer". They remind those who need hope that "you live for the fight when that's all that you've got." The statement "take my hand, we'll make it, I swear" offers hope that through solidarity America and the American way of live will survive and thrive.

    My favorite Christmas present!

    Even IF you saw the full VH1 or the CBS broadcast (so edited you have my sympathy) you MUST invest in the best concert album of the year. Even musical youngsters will appreciate the thunder of the WHO (the best set of the collection), and the intimacy of Melissa Etheridge strumming her heart out on a less than perfectly tuned acoustic guitar. And yes, Paul McCartney HAS had better days (and has been in better voice) but has never had so much soul. Other great perfomances are too numerous to count. AND this is THE best possible way to own a monumental concert event. Profits go to a good cause (God Bless the USA). My sincere thanks to my friends Jen and Danni. They rocked my Christmas with this 2 and 1/2 hour long gift.
