Il disco uscì inizialmente allegato all’home video che conteneva il documentario omonimo diretto da Ernie Fritz e dedicato alla momentanea reunion della E Street Band avvenuta all’inizio del 1995 quando Springsteen richiamò il suo gruppo per registrare un gruppetto di canzoni da inserire come inediti nella sua prima raccolta di successi Greatest HitsNell’occasione furono incise diverse canzoni e quattro di queste furono inserite nella compilation: Secret Garden, Murder Incorporated, Blood Brothers e This Hard Land. In questo EP, il primo disco attribuito a Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band dai tempi del quintuplo Live/1975-85, furono incluse versioni diverse di Blood Brothers e di Secret Garden, una versione dal vivo di Murder Incororated (canzone originariamente registrata e poi scartata da Born in the U.S.A.), e due nuove canzoni, Without You e High Hopes, cover di un brano di Tim Scott.

Il documentario ottenne una nomination ai Grammy Award del 1997 nella sezione Best Music Video – Long Form (miglior video musicale – forma lunga)
