  1. 'The Promise'; the album we got in 2010 ..... Do you think, if it werereleased in say, 77 - that itWould It Have Been A Good Bridge between 'Born To Run' & 'Darkness'? Personally, I don't know. Sounds like itshould have come after 'Darkness'. Whatever the case, I think it's the best collection of songs in anyone of his albums. Brad
  2. How cool would it be if he walked on and played 'Man Who Got Away' firstâť“ Brad
  3. Listening to bootlegs

    Well of course, after all - it's still a bootlegged tape. But I just love it. I've been saying for the last couple years (since the downloads began)that I became very spoiled:I simply can't listen to audience recordings anymore. The good news, for me at least - is thatI'm always into what's current anyway. Hence, their all sensational these days. Brad

  5. Seriously, do we really need to hear these tunes every night these days? Of course their great songs but you'd figure the old man would wanna play something - ANYTHING, different while he can! Be hard to call Bruce lazy for any reason, but for Bruce - he's beenlazy this past week or so with regards to creativity in the song selection.We should be getting new River Outtakes and songsrecorded this century. A lot of tour left to go so we'll see what happens ...... Brad
  6. Will Bruce support Bernie or Hillary?

    Ladies and gentleman - the master of disatster; king of the world and the next President of the United States: JAKE CLEMONS!!!
  7. Listening to bootlegs

    Hey dude, you ever hear 10/23/99? There's an ALD Mix 'Prodial Son In The City Of Angels' (something like that) that's probably the greatest sounding show you'd ever hear! Grab/Find it if you don't already have it. I swear I still play it once a month; at least! Great set that night as well. Brad
  8. Listening to bootlegs

    Omg what a great post dude! I totally understand where your coming from! I have well over 600 nights;my first back in 1984: 12/02/84 - Baton Rouge . My buddy went and taped an awesome show that I must have listened to 1000 times. I used to have so many cassettes that my whole wall was covered! Then unto the CD Days. They were put into cases where I made digital covers for each show that had the tunes on them. Remember those TDK Labels that would stick to the CD? It was great fun. I'd get so stoned and make them for hours! These days all my shows are in Google Music. With the exception of the "Tunnel Of Love" tour - I usually am listening to what he's currently doing. To me, 'Tunnel' shows remain the best, pure-individual-shows to listen to. If you wanna get someone into old Bruce - I think you throw on something from Spring 1988. But, that's my opinion. I think anyone,who is a serious fan like all of us here - would agree that his live shows have made us who we are today. Those tapes kept us going during those long breaks between albums; along with that 'SOMETHING' that came from those speakersthat's made us all say to ourselves: "Now that's what I am talking about" - that energy that still resonates today, for sure - is why we are all here. Of course the words as well. But that energy is something very special. I'mone of those dudes who really loves what he's done since the century turned: The Rising; Magic; Wrecking Ball and High Hopes are always on my car CD player. I do enjoy 'Woad' - but those other four are just unreal. So, save your shows dude. Jam out to your favs when ya can and simply enjoy these amazing downloads we now get. Brad
  9. I don't know why he doesn't just close-off the back of the stage these days; demand isn't what it used to be as he tours so much. Brad
  10. Tell ya this, I know it must be hard to do what they do - I can't play one instrument ifmy life depended on it! But to have a telepromter at the very tip of the stage, let alone have one under his own mic stand - is simply a little cheesy. It's annoying for the folks behind or next to the stage to see a bunch of words go up and down the entire time. Again - this is ANOTHER telepromter IN ADDITION to the one under his mic stand! At least that one is a little obscured. He's had this thing since the 92 tour. I've never seen another musician EVER have that before. The Grateful Dead played completely different shows every night and they didn't have it. But, look what he does. I guess if it helps him give us the best night ever - more power to him! I can't even remember what I said 10min ago, let alone shit from 30 years ago! I don't know. I guess we (the fans) figure their supposed to know their stuff? But I had a great time. 'The River' is just a huge album - I'd rather see him play a few songs before going into it like he did in 2009. I missed seeing new stuff too. As soon as I got in my car, I put on the 'Wrecking Ball' CD - enough nostalgia for one night. Brad
  11. 'Dream Baby Dream' is sung at the end of 'Drive All Night' ..... Very cool!!!
