Fascinating documentary from 1991 -- John Hammond: From Bessie Smith to Bruce Springsteen 1991 PBS American Masters in MP4 VHS rip is a little low res but great content and rare footage.  https://we.tl/t-lXo8pyGsA4

Thanks! The only part of this I've seen is the interview Bruce gave. I'll enjoy watching the whole thing. I must have missed it back in the day...

Yes, it seems. See: Collectors Music Reviews.com and search for 'Amsterdam Magic Night'.

Not uncommon way back then: Godfather was the first to release a bootleg of a certain show, and then Crystal Cat followed some time later with a superior product, in both sound and packaging (but also more expensive), when many had already bought the Godfather bootleg.

Maybe it must be said much of the praise for Crystal Cat's Amsterdam Magic Night has also to do with the packaging, the booklet and photos etc.,  which is only relevant if you have the original physical bootleg in your hands.

(I only own the Godfather bootleg of this show BTW).

From reading the comments on Brucebase, it seems there is no known audio of this show and the setlist is known because of a newspaper review and recollections of an attendee.

Hi Twink,

As Bosstrade confirmed, it's the same, & just checked the files, it's identical, so definately a duplicate under a different name...

I have both in FLAC (CC without any info/checks etc, got it from the crystal dog weblog which hosted tons of CC releases some years ago)). But with this comment I have the need to get this one for real in a physical original CC release. As I was at this show. The venue with one of the worst acoustics in the country....

let me know if you want these. As you are mentioning two other sources it seems ;) 

Hi Jahoe,

I posted the link for 'Heart Attack..' above, as requested. I am looking for other versions, I think the mjk555510 is just the soundcheck, so I'd like that, also looking for the one titled 'Two of us'.

Would be interested to see your anonymous version though?
