  1. “Review from The Age in Melbourne. Spoiler alert: it really is “legendary.” (Some Lakers might have to avert their eyes from the first review…) https://www.theage.com.au/culture/music/music-reviews-bruce-springsteen-and-the-e-street-band-sting-and-more-20211115-p598yt.html
  2. Out of left field there Dbro02, but yes! I was there too and it was heaps of fun.
  3. The live album is up (on iTunes in Australia, at least) so that’s my morning listening sorted.
  4. Little girl, I want to marry you Oh yeah, little girl, I want to marry you Yes I do Little girl, I want to marry you
  5. How about: ”I see the lonely ribbon in your hair Tell me am I the man for whom you put it there” 10 out of 10 for grammar, but not even Bruce can save that one.
  6. “Now I carry my operator’s license “ from Tucson Train. Not easy to sing along with that one without a bit of practise. And would anyone but Bruce sound smooth singing, “Gonna be a rumble out on the promenade...”?
  7. How about Bruce, every single musician on the album, Paramount Theatre, twenty cameras and no audience, a couple of days of recording and a landmark Netflix special/Bluray/DVD release on the 23rd of September this year? I’d take that.
  8. Sadly true. During our youth our world becomes bigger but as we enter those last years it shrinks again, smaller and smaller. Wayfarer has a discordant edge that I’m not sure I really like. I’m wondering if there’s an outtake that missed out for it? Who knows what’s still in the vault. And, yes, I’ve thought of a playlist of the album with TT first and Hitchhiker a little deeper into the album but I keep thinking the young traveller’s story has to be the lead off... Damn it, she is on that damn train!
  9. We mightn’t ever get to hear Electric Nebraska, but at least now I feel like we have Orchestral Nebraska.
  10. TBH I haven’t kept up with the newer albums- when I stopped following the new releases I guess I fell right off the cliff. If I’ve been missing out I only have myself to blame for losing faith, so I’ll make the effort to catch up.
  11. It crossed my mind this morning, “Hmm, I wonder which category/categories the Grammy nominations will be?” As as someone who has really enjoyed both Bob Seger and JCM in the past but then drifted away when I began to feel they had passed their peak, I think I can guess that there’s no way they could have come up with an album this good. The connections with Bruce’s earlier themes plus the sharp detour into more unfamiliar aural territory are what kept me listening to Bruce when I no longer bought new Seger or Mellancamp records. I honestly don’t know if this is a classic, either, but it is a great listen in a winter Sunday morning.
