Release notes:
Too many times in life when people realize that their dreams are not going to come true they, much too often, give up on those dreams and instead accept the hand that life deals them. Grushecky is not one of these people. Faced with the fact that his dream of making it big in the unforgiving business of Rock 'n' Roll was going to fall just short, Joe Grushecky chose a different path. He kept fighting. This is his story.

This release also includes a bonus CD compiling eight songs recorded live on 20 and 21 Oct 1995 at Nick's Fat City in Pittsburgh, PA, during the October Assault Tour, featuring Joe Grushecky & The Houserockers with Bruce Springsteen.

Total duration (DVD): approximately 90 minutes.

Comes in a standard double DVD case.
