Notes from BruceDVDs:
In March 1993, MTV took their cameras to the Count Basie Theatre in Red Bank, New Jersey to capture some video that could be used in news bulletins announcing the HT/LT European Tour. The 'Red Bank Rehearsals' DVD uses an original SVHS promo tape as the source of the transfer.
The footage is divided into two parts. The first is a lengthy interview where Bruce talks about his new musical direction and touring without the E Street Band. Picture quality is excellent, but only the most dedicated fans will manage to sit through all 40 minutes.
The second part is far more interesting. It consists of 'rehearsals' (most likely staged especially for the cameras) for the benefit show later that night. Five songs are worked on, including the rarely performed 'Warm and Tender Love' and 'Soul Driver'. The picture quality is clean and sharp, but the image is a little dark and the colour balance is shifted towards blue.
'Red Bank Rehearsals' was one of the first releases from brucevideos Productions. The great quality of the pro-shot rehearsal footage makes it a 'must have'.
