  1. If you have downloaded the GL volumes, please be aware that there were a few songs missing from vol. 1, disc 1+2 and vol. 3, disc 2+4. That has now been corrected, but you may want to re-download.
  2. All four Live at Greasy Lake volumes - a total of 16 cd's - are now available for download as flac files here: Artwork can be found here: I hope it works. Shout out to @Balloon Man who did most of the work with these back in the days. Unfortunately, he doesn't come around here anymore, I think.
  3. I'll try to get it done over the weekend.
  4. Wow... I remember those! I don't think they are available for download anymore, but I own them all on cd and can rip them and upload them to somewhere if there is interest in it.

    That's a great idea, but it doesn't seem to be possible with the current version of the software. Maybe it will be added later.
  6. @newcastle roy, this place would not be the same without you. I've always loved your unwavering support for Bruce. You often express what I feel when it comes to Bruce. I just tend to be more diplomatic :). If I cared about English football, I'm sure I'd be on your side on that too! I'm glad the Lake has been a good force in your life, and I hope it will continue to be. Anyway, thank you for all the donations so far. We are almost where we want to be in regards to the bill that's due next week, but I will leave the post pinned for a while longer, so that maybe I don't have to bother you again for another full year.
  7. With every wish there comes a curse, and our curse is that this place is not free. In order to be able to provide a reliable, fast, and stable playground for our Bruce frolicking, we need to pay the bill to The Man. The Man in this case is our hosting company, who, unfortunately doesn't agree that Greasy Lake is so important that they ought to provide a server for free. So once again I'm afraid I need to ask for your help. If I could pay for it all myself, I would, but I can't. So if you care about this place and want to continue to be able to come here and cultivate your Bruce weakness/obsession/interest with like-minded people, I'm afraid there is no way around chipping in. Most of you probably know the drill. We accept Paypal donations and cash. You can find all the details and links you need on our donation page. Thank you so much for considering this. I know December is probably not the best time to ask for money, but I hope you can spare a little bit so that we can still be here and share the exciting things 2019 has in store for us, even if it isn't an E Street Band tour.
  8. I agree with that. People who are interviewed are often allowed to approve their quotes, but I don't think any journalist would let their subjects overall approve or disapprove an article. On the other hand, without quotes to support it, it's pretty bad journalistic work to write that Bruce will soon tour with the E Street Band in the UK.
  9. Bruce wrote "Racing in the Street" at 21??? I don't believe that for a second.
  10. I enlarged the picture using neural network artificial intelligence. I cut out the part of the picture in question and uploaded it to Google's image search. Here's the result.

    You don't go to "edit profile", but to "account settings"... Yeah, I don't know what the difference is.

    Is it me or is it the site? (editing)

    I haven't done a thing recently. Must be some kind of magic.
  13. Hey Kar, thanks for allowing the "Bootleg Corner" on the main page and letting us file transfer. Hence, I know how "Disciplined" you've been keeping that stuff in another board room all these years; etc, etc.

    This is what its all about! Hope your well,

    Formation of the other band

    I saw eight shows on that tour and remember it as a very exciting time. Mostly because it was my first time following a tour like that and seeing multiple shows and traveling from city to city and meeting other fans. I kept an open mind about Bruce playing with another band and enjoyed the shows while they were happening. It's mostly in retrospect - and after seeing many ESB shows later on - that I realized something was indeed not quite right about the other band tour. Like others have mentioned, Bruce using the same arrangements for most songs, and even giving Crystal a saxophone to play during "Born to Run", just seemed wrong. And his attempt at creating the same kind of camaraderie as with the ESB members, only these people didn't have the personalities and history with Bruce to pull it off. They just seemed awkward and starstruck. Part of it was Bruce's fault as I think he had some very specific ideas about what he wanted to happen and directed the band down to every little detail... Which maybe he had to because they were starting from scratch. Whatever the case, that kind of micro-management may work if you're Britney Spears, but it doesn't make for a great Springsteen show. Also, I disagree with J that they played flawlessly. Zach in particular made plenty of mistakes, often due to the fact that his eyes were not glued to Bruce at all times. He always seemed to be looking down to his side and didn't follow Bruce's cues. This resulted in the biggest blunder I've ever seen at a Bruce show when, at the last 1993 European show in Oslo, he didn't notice that Bruce had kicked back into "Twist and Shout" and just continued the last note. It was a train wreck of a climax and may have been the moment I seriously started to miss the ESB.
  15. Wow, those versions of "Johnny Bye Bye" and "Follow That Dream" in perfect quality... Can't wait to hear them...
