New releases and a crowning

Published 2011-03-09

After a long period of nothing, the last couple of days have suddenly exploded in Bruce news. No, no new album or tour, but at this point we'll take anything we get. First of all, there's a new release coming out on May 5. Well, "new" may be stretching it. It's a separate release of The Promise: The Making of Darkness o ... Read more

The Bruce Librarian Vol. III: Finding Grace in the Concert Hall

Published 2011-02-13

A book about Bruce is not just a book about Bruce. There are several types of Bruce books: everything from the traditional biography to picture books and guitar tab books. One sub-genre is not very well-known. You won’t find it in many bookstores, except possibly in college bookstores or other very specialized places, and it’s not the kind of book you want to give to the casual fan ... Read more

Bruce rocks for the Ranney School

Published 2011-01-30

The annual benefit show for the Ranney School, which has one or more of Bruce's kids attending classes, took place last night at the Stone Pony. Concept was the same as always: only access for employees of the school, plus parents of students, and the parents even had to shell out big money to be there. But no doubt everybody in attendance felt they got their money's worth as Bruce deliver ... Read more

Bruce makes first live appearance of 2011

Published 2011-01-16

As has become a great habit for him, Bruce showed up at last night's Light of Day benefit show at the Paramount Theater in Asbury Park. As usual, his presence hadn't been announced, but that didn't stop him from showing up and joining the usual suspects Joe Grushecky, Jesse Malin, Willie Nile and Alejandro Escovedo for a long night of great rock 'n' roll. After guesting with the three last-ment ... Read more

Greasy Lake Reviews: The Promise - The Darkness on the Edge of Town Story

Published 2010-12-26

Reviewing The Promise box actually makes as much sense as Reader’s Digest reviewing The Holy Grail. In many ways The Promise defies all earthly attempts to describe, label or criticize. It is the Holy Grail for Springsteen fans. Even after its release, going through the list of contents makes you wonder if it was all just a dream. Did we really get a complete 1978 show on DVD? Was there r ... Read more

Merry Bruce Christmas!

Published 2010-12-24

Christmas is over us and 2010 is running out of time. Greasy Lake would like to wish you a Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Festive Festivus, or whatever you're celebrating. If you're among the people who didn't get the Darkness box yet, hopefully it will be under the Christmas tree for you. From a Bruce perspective that box has been the definite highlight of the year and will be hard to surpas ... Read more

Webcast starting to show up

Published 2010-12-15

The live performance from December 7, where Bruce and the E Street Band performed for a very limited number of people at the Casino in Asbury Park, has started to show up online as an official Christmas webcast. We can't tell you what it contains, because so far you can only watch in in the US through something called Read more

Bruce does Bruce

Published 2010-11-17

So Bruce was on Jimmy Fallon's Late Night talkshow last night. He was interviewed, performed a couple of songs, yada yada.... Just the usual drill in connection with a new release. Wrong! This time he did something he's never done before. Heck, I don't know if any star of his stature has ever done anything like it. It was weird. It was surreal. It was so unlikely that probably not everybod ... Read more

Darkness box hits the shelves

Published 2010-11-15

The Promise was kept. At least in Europe, the Darkness boxset and the separate The Promise double album are now available. Americans will have to wait till Tuesday, but after a three-month wait, one more day seems like it might just be possible to overcome for even the most impatient fan. What really sucks are the several cases we've heard of where stores haven't had enough of the blu-ray versi ... Read more

Brent Fulberry commenting on this: Let's be honest - and you libs here arent' going to like hearing the TRUTH - but make no mistake, it was RONALD REAGAN who did more to bring down that wall than anyone. PERIOD!
Rob Malkin commenting on this: Well, they've now become available individually since record store day. So for 17 I picked up The Wild the IN... (well you know the rest) I'm sold, you would have to be deaf not to hear the difference; clarity, warmth and truly parts I'd not heard before. Ok so now that the price of the vinyl box set has dropped a bit the savings aren't huge, but at least I can spread the cost and don't need to re buy the superfluous Nebraska. My only gripe would be why not make them available to buy individualy from the get go? Although I guess Allan's answered that already?
