Notes from BruceDVDs.net:
A great deal of Bruce's music owes a debt to the writings of John Steinbeck. Bruce first drew on Steinbeck's themes of sympathy and justice for the working man on the "Darkness..." album and this shared message culminated in an entire album's worth of songs about the struggles of migrant workers on "The Ghost of Tom Joad". It was therefore appropriate that Bruce accepted an invitation during the Joad tour to perform a benefit for San Jose State University's John Steinbeck Research Center. The excellent presentation of the show on "Once Upon a Time in the West" from Ultimix has now been further improved by DVD Dubbing Guy. Most of the elements from the Ultimix version have wisely been retained, including the stylish menus designs and the supreme title sequence that uses Henry Fonda's soliloquy from "The Grapes of Wrath" to such great effect. Like most of the amateur videos from the tour, the footage is fairly dark. However, unlike the rest, this one is very steady and the filmed was well situated in a central location. The picture quality is good, with reasonable definition and little sign of generation loss. The dubbed audio on the original Ultimix version was already outstanding. However, DVD Dubbing Guy has replaced it with and even better source. The sound is vibrant, full and crystal clear. It rates as one of the very best audience recordings of the entire tour. The best video footage, best DVD production and best sound from GOTJ tour have now all come together on the same set. "Once Upon a Time in the West V2.0" is undoubtedly and essential part of every respectable Bruce DVD collection.
