THE BRIDGE SCHOOL CONCERTS 25'TH ANNIVERSARY EDITION

2011-11-01

For the past 25 years Neil Young and his wife Pegi have been hosting the Bridge School benefit concert in Mountain View California to raise funds for the Bridge School, which assists children with severe physical impairments and complex communication needs. This CD gives us 25 amazing acoustic tracks from artists that have recorded at this fundraiser over the past 1/4 century. This disc combines performances from classic rockers such as the Who, Paul McCartney, Elton John, REM, Crosby Stills Nash &Young and Bruce Springsteen combined with acoustic metal from Metallica and a terrific rendition of Pearl Jams classic Better Man. This CD also keeps current with eclectic folk acts such as Fleet Foxes and Band Of Horses as well as an amazing vocal performance by Gillian Welch on "The Way It Will Be". This disc combines a virtual who's who from the world of music that encompass rock, metal, folk, country and yes even jazz with the golden vocals of Tony Bennett. Many of the proceeds from this disc will benefit the Bridge School and we are rewarded with one of the finest musical compilations ever put together. Reviewed By: Gregg Saur
