    Some nights, this is all I need... I remember how it floored me. In those days before the internet, I had only a vague idea of what to expect from the Tunnel Of Love Express. I still remember realizing toward the end of his introduction that he was going to play Born To Run. I felt a seed of doubt. The band wasn't on stage. It was just Bruce with his acoustic guitar and harmonica. The moment he began to sing, I was absorbed and before he was finished, I was crying. Just a little. It was beautiful then and it's beautiful now and the way it made me feel that night, my first year off the road, my first Springsteen show since I put my backpack away, is a way I want to feel sometimes still. The song that had always roared like a justification for my running away now whispered like an affirmation that slowing down isn't standing still, but it's close enough. Wo oh oh wo oh oh...

    I just hope he does with this E Street record what he did with Western Stars; write great character-driven songs, widen his comfort zone and give us something memorable and moving.

    Reminded of the cruel and inhumane Trump policies toward immigrants, the children in cages, the death of those running from terror to thier death in rivers, or from the heat. I support this project and suggest you all dig deep to support thier efforts...and of course support removing Trump and his ilk from Congress.

    OOOOOOH MYYYYY FUUUCKING GOOOOOOD THIS IS SO ABSOLUTELY FREAKING FANTASTIC!!!!!!!!! I AM ECSTATIC!!! Winterland 15 dec. '78 is my most listened live show by Bruce, and I can't wait to hear the official release!!!!!!! It features the best fucking Backstreets in my humble opinion. The prove it all night intro might also be the best one out there. AND NOW WE GOT 16 DEC. TOO!!!! A show I've never ever listened too.... So I'm really looking forward to these!!!! THESE ARE AMAZING SHOWS (and they don't even feature lost in the flood) SO LET'S BUY THEM PEOPLE!!!! HAPPY HOLIDAYS

    Mr. B is in the basement sweating and swearing while putting together a treadmill I wished for as Christmas present. It's a complicated piece. I hope to spend many happy hours on it walking away while staying in place . He left it till today to set it up and only has until tonight to finish because present giving time is Christmas Eve in Germany. We will be having scallpos in herb butter as starters and then "Ragout fin", which is best cuts of veal, beef, mushrooms and chicken, cut up small and braised, then smothered with a tasty white sauce, topped with Parmesan and bread cumbs and browned it the oven. Served with lemon slices and -important! the real Worcestershire Sauce. It's a family tradition to serve it on Christmas Eve while most people have potato salad and frankfurters. I can have the latter any old day but not tonight! So, have a merry Christmas, everyone, hope to see you here soon because I'll miss you if you're absent!

    I hope everyone else stops for a moment tonight and thinks about how in 2019 we're "arguing" on a Bruce Springsteen forum about the sound quality of the official Winterland '78, Nassau '80 and Stockholm '88 releases. Imagine having that opportunity a few years ago! The Archive Series, man, what a delight.

    If they do a BITUSA tour they should open with Protection, what a banger that one is.

    The highlight of the 88 show for me. I'm a perennial cryer at gigs, this one had me in floods. The spoken intro played a part........"....this song has kept me good company on my journey, I hope it's kept you good company on yours....". Wonderful.

    I beg to differ - it's here as a service of people need it, and some years that will be more than others. It didn't have a critical mass this year, but that doesn't make it a flop. The fact you started it gets a hat tip from me, and that we did get a cross section of regulars tells you it was appreciated. We. Take. Care. Of. Our. Own.

    I've say that a lot, but in the end I also end up getting the download. Shit it only 12 to 15 bucks. I can eat and drink that much it about 8 minutes, so why not buy something you can enjoy for three hours for the same cost.

    We took Nabisco and Ivy to the beach today for the first time ever. Didn't go too bad, though neither one of them wanted anything to do with the water.

    Absolutely gutted tonight to hear that Rush drummer Neil Peart has died after a 3 year battle against brain cancer, In my early teens I was a huge Rush fan and saw them several times in the early 80's including one memorable gig in 1980 at the Apollo in Glasgow when I was 15. Peart was quite simply without any shadow of a doubt the greatest drummer I have ever seen or heard. I hate drum solos, but seeing a Neil Peart drum solo live in concert was a breathtaking experience. Have a look at one on YouTube if you want to see what I mean. The man was just a machine and technically brilliant. He was also a hugely intelligent man who wrote the bands lyrics which were quite incredible. I went off them a bit around the mid 80's but then I went to their 40 year anniversary show at the SECC in Glasgow in 2004 and they were still amazing in concert and Neil was still as awesome as ever. Really sad to see one of my all time heroes of music pass away too young. Thanks for the memories. RIP Neil

    Once again, nice for some writers... Imagine doing that though, writing a blog post in advance to get it out asap when the show is released. You wouldn't see me doing that in July 2018 for The Roxy '78 or doing that in November 2019 in preparation for a potential Vietnam Vets release somewhere down the road. Nope, not me.

    To wrap up, there have been a lot of Bruce interviews in recent months where he says the E Street Band are touring in 2020. Are you pretty sure it’s going to happen? Until I see a press release, I don’t care what he says, alright? I mean, I’ve gotten in trouble before, so I’ve learned my lesson. I don’t care what he says. Yes, I hope so. I even may think so. But until there’s a press release, all I can say is that I hope so and I think so.

    He’s going to turn up his workout with Hello Sunshine? I assume his workout is some sort of meditation or yoga. Or just a nap.

    Nassau 1980.....that because the night solo with the new mix..... If the kids weren’t asleep upstairs and the wife didn’t want to watch TV I would play this show at full volume on my home speakers tonight synchronising the start time to reach midnight as at showtime. What a way to see the new year in it was for those fans that night. And I absolutely love the new mix which came out a few months ago.

    Yep. And also speculating and arguing about which additional song(s) could be included in the setlist if only he didn't waste time on that She's The One intro and the Backstreets interlude.

    I agree, and I am happy to meet kindred spirits along the way. Like you. Was thinking about what you said. The music is powerful and the soul of it is undeniable, even when he was writing Lost in the Flood. That humanity we see and feel is his vision and his values. That is such an anti-war song. I know it. Same with Jungleland. That empathy for those people in those songs and the spirit that hit me when I was small. It has informed me all these years later. Was listening to Nebraska the other day. That feeling for that person in the electric chair for doing those crimes. I could go on and on and on. Its him. I believe we are all richer for having listened to it, I know I am.

    I’m really happy this double release. It is really great to have both shows at the same time and especially these legendary shows. I hardly can imagine that these shows happened 40 years ago they sound so fresh.

    Ironic the only 1978 radio show left now is Atlanta. As Atlanta was the show which most needed an official release due to the bad weather conditions in the U.S.A. South during the radio broadcast. Edit: and because Atlanta has the greatest ever versions of Prove It All Night, Backstreets and She's The One and this show is very underrated compared to the other 4 radio shows from 1978.

    Welcome! I too am in Minnesota (Plymouth) and was born here. My first show was 11/29/1999 Target Center and have been a fan ever since. (I have often advocated for that show becoming an official Archive Series release due to its set list but that is a debate for an another thread!) Welcome again!

    Maybe now would be the time to officially pause the project for a while, pick and mix the shows in advance, prepare some adequate safety stock? Maybe resolve the Rising issue in the meantime....
