  1. It’s too bad cause that version of 'Frankie’ from the last night of the 'High Hopes' tour is probably the best I’ve ever heard! For whatever reason it’s not part of the live download series. But, it may be just as well because he played "Jump” - it’s the only time I’ve ever cut a song off a bootleg .... but still consider doing it for those horrible bullet mic "Reason To Believes" back in 05. Brad
  2. People, This podcast is the shit! This is the stuff that should have been on Sirius Radio all along ....... still can be! Finally - all talk about recordings; history and the songs!! Obviously, Flynn’s been around our circuit for many years now and he sounds great - it’s just awesome to listen to "Some Of Us” discuss what we all love so much: THE SHOWS!!! Dave/Jim (Sirius/E St Nation) do a good job of keeping things generic for the average person - but they are mostly about BRUCE - this podcast is about what’s done on stage and personally - that’s what I’ve cared most about all these years. KARSTEN: You should start a thread from the moderator for this podcast so we can comment back to these guys. PS: Flynn I know your reading this and I’m with you on "Only being able to listen to the professional recordings as well these past few years” (Episode 2) .... But I do miss some audience participation here and there. Also, the two Oakland shows and the one from Chicago - both 85 - sound fantastic! But yes - the LA/85 download IS like hearing that leg for the first time. Great job dudes - keep it up, Brad
  3. BS dude!!! Ya gotta get it anyway! Support the cause - I used to only dream of these things coming out like this haha Plus it sounds amazing lol Enjoy buddy, Brad
  4. O M G!!!!! What to do with my amazing mixed boot of this show now lol Great news people!!!! However, I’m starting to think they don’t have a good sounding tape from that 1981 LA run .... Brad
  5. Funny thing about this tour with me: I don’t really listen to many shows from it. While I attended 22 on this tour and have always advocated that he play material from whatever new album he’s touring behind (which he definitely did here) - the whole darn thing just reminds me of that horrible day in 2001. Hence, I’d rather listen to other tours where “Rising” songs come in and out of the sets. Pittsburgh/2016 (Fall) is a good choice. Even-still - “The Rising”, along with B2R and BIUSA are his true masterpieces. Brad
  6. Hey Lamp - believe me when I say "I hope I’m wrong” .... all I want is a fantastic version of “Protection” and "Sugarland” lol, Brad
  7. Good points my friend and all true; especially regarding the SOB record. I was thinking that his name is all over the media in 2019 one way or the other so perhaps they wouldn’t want anymore. Why? Because 2020 will be even bigger. Ive been on this train since I’m 10 (1980) and I’m dumbfounded as to the lack of promotion for WS! Where the heck was a song or two on late night TV? His typical Rolling Stone cover, etc. All I can think of is that they (Landau Management) are waiting for next year. One thing I do know is this: They know what they’re doing! His PR team does a great job - however, one thing I have ALWAYS bitched about since 1992 is they’re choice of single to release first for the radio, etc. It’s almost as if they don’t want new radio play? Hence, if they wanted really good PR - then “Let’s Be Friends” and "Girls In Summer Clothes” would be all over the radio. Didn't mean to go off topic, Brad
  8. Any good versions of 9-21-09 out there? Great show, thanks, brad
  9. While I love the 78 tour, it was never my favorite. But everyone here seems to want shows they already have - wasn’t it cool to hear Houston/78? He did a lot of good stuff on that tour and there are certainly others besides these radio broadcasts I’d rather have. Regardless, here’s to a Fall/84 show being released soon ... Brad
  10. He just released a Netflix album; an album of new material; a movie basically about him and now a Western Stars flick - and there’s to be a new album next year. I seriously doubt they’ll flood the market with a box of these old jems. brad
  11. Great song! Not sure it belongs on WB - but most of us here have agreed over the years that he hasn’t played enough of this century’s music - he feels compelled in sticking to those first 8 studios. Brad
  12. When this story takes place - he was the most respected and powerful man in the business, save for Michael Jackson or Madonna. But in Rock/Roll - there's no questioning it. This movie makes it sound like "Tom Joad" was released the previous day.
  13. I saw the movie last night and loved it! It was very cool to hear the songs we all grew up with (and still love) from such a different point of view. However, why the writers led the audience to believe that Springsteen's popularity faded in 1987 ("Someone our parents listened too") was not only misleading but an outright lie! Did they really need that dialogue to have this movie make sense? And then to say the "Wembley/88" show wasn't sold out - is simply ridiculous! In 1987/88; Springsteen was just getting off from releasing the biggest live album ever and then having a #1 record (TOL) that saw three top 20 hits! He was the most powerful man in Music and certainly the most respected. So, if you take the movie for what it is - it's fantastic! But I'm sorry that future generations (even now) won't be able to look back years from now and see what the times really were, musically speaking. Brad
