11 The Making of "Hungry Heart"

Bruce shot his promo video for the 1995 re-release of "Hungry Heart" at Cafe Eckstein in Berlin with Wolfgang Niedecken and his band. This excellent pro-shot footage features the entire performance in front of a small crowd inside the cafe with a much larger crowd outside. The unique occassion and the song selection of some great rock standards make this a very enjoyable DVD.

A 15 minute "Making Of" documentary is also included, featuring footage of Bruce in and around Berlin at the time of the video shoot.

This upgraded version uses a master copy of the "Making Of" promo tape and a 1st generation copy of the concert as its sources. There is a noticeable improvement in picture quality when compared to the original, although it is still not perfect by any means. There is a "Super Six" logo in the bottom left corner of the screen throughout the shot, but any distraction this causes is more than compensated by the cleaner image.
