    I remember being fascinated by Max’s response to being asked if he’d ever launched into a song and not known what it was. He said the first time they played ‘It’s my life’ and said he didn’t know they were going to play it and hadn’t rehearsed it. Max said “Bruce started strumming it on his guitar and we just fell into it”. Great to now have this! 

  2. Some show info here from an audience bootleg. Not sure if a high quality soundboard circulates? 

    Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band “It’s My Life” Kivak Master Series C.W. Post College Greenvale, NY December 12, 1975 Audience Recording Cassette>CDR>Magix/CD WavE Editor/Magix>flac

    What can I say? Joe Kivak was there! This is the first time Bruce performs “It’s My Life” and I love it too! This is much tighter and effective than when he does it in other shows with the long, drawn out story intro. This show also features the now famous "Santa Claus Is Coming To Town” which was later officially released. There is a killer version of “Lost In the Flood” and “For You” with Bruce on piano. This is 1975 and one of the best shows from that era! The sound is pretty good too! I did some tweaking. This is a high energy show right down to those wonderful encores. Detroit Medley kicks major ass! Are you loose? Get ready, if you haven’t heard this show, you are in for a treat! Fanatic Records and Mr Anonymous proudly bring you the Kivak Master Series!

  3. I can’t see how Paul Tierney can ever referee an LFC game again now while Klopp is still manager. Firstly he fails to send him to the stands and then the FA take no action either after he blatantly tells him he has a problem with him to his face for the whole world to hear! Impossible to ref them again.

    Robertson was unwise to have made such a tackle, but the one by Kane much earlier in the game was so much worse and far more deserving of a red card.  Kane's foul was over the top of the ball, reckless and dangerous, a potential leg breaker. Robertson's foul by contrast had much more of a theatrical quality about it, far less dangerous in its nature, intent and potential to cause a serious injury.

    Yep Kane definitely was a red. With the 3 points there for LFC though as the game wore on with his goal set to close on City it was madness by Robertson (even after letting the lead slip) as they still had time to win it.

    I wish I could share part of your enthusiasm about his recent performance. For sure the sale of his catalogue won’t change his passion, but it was the Dukes that made the four song set solid. Bruce’s voice seems to struggle in a few occasions and he moved rather slowly. Don’t get me wrong: that’s still great for his age (and he is in superb shape), but I saw no particular lion in terms of energy. The last couple of years seem to have taken their toll in this respect. Hope I’m wrong.

    Ok maybe not the lion of his former self, but like the rest of us he’s been frustrated, locked down, caged. Denied time, and 5 years of performing in front of his audience with the band. And when that cage door opens, boy do I want to be there to see it. Bring it on.

    It would be nice if things did indeed speed up a bit.

    Bruce did say there would be another release in the Spring, but no hint as to whether that's the "record set in the West" or something else.

    You’d like to think it would be E Street related if they are still hoping to start touring weeks after any Spring time release instead of promoting it back to Letter To You.

    The box isn’t going to sell that much.

    Hopefully so, as that means Sony will have to release tons of stuff to make money on the deal. They aren’t a charity and clearly aren’t planning to blow half a billion dollars without thinking it could be profitable. In 20 years time it’ll be “Bruce who?” for the youth of today so hopefully it’s us fans here and now as the likely buyers, who will benefit most from this deal in the coming years.
