This is the sister set to the "This Is Your Life" DVD compilation that was released in the summer of 2003. "Bruce: In Some Fashion" has been in the making for more than two years. It started when my friend Art loaned me about 75 videotapes he had from the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s. Art was TiVo before there was TiVo. Amazing the things he recorded. If Bruce was on TV in some fashion, Art recorded it. I went through all his tapes and put together all the best clips here. Plus I added various other unique and special clips to the set that I had gathered.
The set is more than 16 hours of all types of Bruce clips - TV news reports, concert footage, award shows, interview clips from 1977 to 2005. There's even a clip from "Jeopardy" when they had a category "The Boss" in the 1980s.
Some of the footage has been seen before but much has not. The compilation is sort of a documentary of Bruce, his music and his fans over the years. I think any Bruce fan will enjoy it. Each disc has chapters and menus. -- stang
