Crowe's passionate ode to the '70s -- and his own adolescence -- is by turns an uproarious comedy, a poignant drama, a heartbreaking love story, and a lively musical.

Studio albums are formal, slick and polished; bootleg albums are haphazard collections, raw and rough, often including fragments of songs. This is a bootleg DVD!
