Reviews:

For the first time, A Matter Of Trust The Bridge To Russia, presents an expanded version of what fans saw and heard over a quarter-century ago. The newly remastered concert DVD, originally directed by Wayne Isham, adds seven previously unreleased songs to the original 1987 VHS release Live From Leningrad, including a bonus performance of Pressure. 

Billy has always believed that going to Russia was the most important thing he'd ever done. The freedom and excitement of his presence permanently affected the country and played no small role in the ultimate dissolution of the U.S.S.R. in 1991.
