'VH1 Storytellers' features Springsteen accompanying himself on piano, guitar, and harmonica. Patti Scialfa joins him on vocals for "Brilliant Disguise."
Taped at Two River Theater in Red Bank, NJ on April 4, the performance earned critical nods. AP said, "Over the course of the evening, Springsteen was funny, glib, self-deprecating, chatty and occasionally revealing... The stage patter gave way to some magnificent musical moments."
The Newark Star-Ledger said, "a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of his songs, and hear some fine acoustic versions of them in the process... a must-see."
Recorded in high definition, 'VH1 Storytellers' includes a 5.1 Surround Sound mix and a PCM Stereo mix.
Springsteen's previous DVD, 2003's 'Live In Barcelona' (Columbia Records), was certified quadruple platinum by the RIAA in April, while 2001's 'Live in New York City' is certified triple platinum.
Springsteen is in the midst of a run of solo tour dates.
