Saturday night 10/19, we went to see Western Stars. No only did Mrs. Set Lusting bruce (Linda)
join me but her sister Mary & my brother in law Clayton. I was
on the only Bruce fanatic in the group, the other 3 were going just to enjoy a
night together. We went to Maggiano’s
before hand and we lost track of time.
We realized that we were going to make the movie but barely. In fact, we walked into the theater and Bruce
was already singing Hitch Hiker.
The film is amazing.
I love the Western Stars CD and to hear the songs done live with a full
orchestra was a treat. The musicians
were amazing, hearing a full string section on top of the horns and the rest of
the instruments raised the bar on the songs.
It was good to see some familiar faces
as part of the group as well as all the new musicians. IF this had been straight concert film, it
would have been great but I love that Bruce and Thom took it to another
level. The segments between songs were
insightful, informative, inspiring and touching. As I listened, I wished I had the script to
read after the film. Bruce shares so much
of himself as well as his thoughts on life.
I had read that this is the 3rd part of a Springsteen
triology. The book, the broadway show
and now the film. I agree. Linda had listened to the CD on our way back
from Atlanta and she liked it. But she shared
with me during the film in a whisper how much she liked the songs more watching
him perform them. By seeing Bruce and
somewhat reading his lips she was able to understand much more about the
stories of the songs not just the emotions.
Clay and Mary both were impressed and loved watching him perform. Clayton is a big fan of Glen Campbell so
having Bruce end the show with Rhinestone Cowboy gave him a thrill. He mentioned it was the perfect way to end
the film and the set. Another comment
Clay shared is that he agreed with Bruce that strings do increase the sound and
makes it bigger. I don’t know if the
movie converted them totally, but it at least moved them a little closer to the
I loved hearing all the songs. The footage between songs be it old home movies
or fresh scenes of the dessert were beautiful.
Clay, Mary and Linda love Big Bend TX and the film made them want to get
in the car and head to south Texas. I
ove the home movies of Patti and Bruce, the story of the bench and of course
them singing together. The more we
learn about their relationship, the more we know that she has been his good companion
on this part of the ride. She had been
his strength when needed and his soft place to fall.
The making of bonus segment was also enjoyable. It was good to see parts of the Q&A on
the big screen. I enjoyed hearing the
different creative people behind the scenes talking about the filming. The barn was amazing. I did tell Linda that it seems a little
unfair that not only did the select few get to hear this live, but they also got
their name in the credits. She asked if
I wished I was in the crowd knowing what my answer would be, YES.
This is an amazing new chapter in Bruce’s journey and I’m so
glad he shared this with us. But enough
about my thoughts, what do you think?
