The 25th Anniversary Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame Concerts (Box Set)
by Various Artists
Released: Nov 2010
Label: Time-Life Music
The 25th Anniversary Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Concerts is the soundtrack to the Emmy-nominated program of the same name. As you'd expect, this 54-track beast is packed with highly polished performances from rock's elite: CS&N, U2, Jerry Lee Lewis, Stevie Wonder, The Boss, Paul Simon and more. The most interesting songs feature the kind of star-studded, if rather odd, collaborations the hall's annual induction shows tend to generate. "Gimme Shelter" featuring Mick Jagger, U2 and Fergie is a good one. But even better is Ray Davies backed by Metallica on "All Day and All of the Night."
