The first part of the track is just Mr. Logan, but John Benn comes in after roughly 40 minutes. He stays for the rest of the track, and for the other hour, they talk at length about Bruce Lee and how incredible he is. I’m not going to argue with anything they say because, well, it’s all true. Mr. Logan asks a lot of questions about the production, like who spoke English, or what happened during whatever scene, to which Mr. Benn answers dutifully. He gives out some nice tidbits of information and behind the scenes stories. One of the guys had a wedding after the shooting day, but unfortunately during a fight scene, he received a punch and got this really huge fat lip. Apparently his fiancé wasn’t too impressed. They also talk a bit about Donnie Yen. Mr. Benn says Mr. Yen has a little bit of that Bruce quality so many people were looking for after Mr. Lee died. Mr. Benn talks a lot about meeting people who recognize him because of the movie. As usual, Mr. Logan talks about all the actors and locations and offers his own opinions and humorous comments.
Mr. Logan points out that Robert Wall’s character, in the movie, is called ‘Bob’, but in the credits is called ‘Fred’. In all, it’s really nice companion to the movie. Well worth the listen.

Mostly a very informative and very detailed track, like the guys other tracks, but once the guest comes in, the tone changes to more asking questions about what it was like on the set, as opposed to what it was like in each scene. Still good though. Lots of stories, and little notes of interest. You can even hear their amazement still at watching some of the things Bruce could do.
