  1. Here are highres scans of my copy https://www.springsteenlyrics.com/collection.php?item=5049
  2. Word by word, including the numbers and the titles of the chapters. And he enunciates, cHanges tones, chuckles... So you get much more by listening to the book when the author himself reads it.
  3. In my case, it's when I have these 5-to-10-hour drives.
  4. Always happy top help. And thank you for the positive feedback
  5. ...though the sound quality on these non-black-vinyl records is the same as regular black-vinyl records, you cannot see the scratches is there are any, especially on clear vinyl.
  6. That's not a mispressing. It's the Barnes & Nobles exclusive. The hype sticker on the shrink says "A Barnes & Noble Exclusive On Limited Edition Clear & Blue Vinyl". Basically meaning that it's a clear vinyl with blue swirls, which corresponds to what you have. Unfortunately, they used on their website a photo of the European limited edition version which is cyan vinyl with blue swirl and is exclusive to independent record stores and online retailers.
  7. And here are the United States Copyright Office entries I referenced above. "Description: 2 p." seem to indicate that each of these songs was filed as 2-page documents with lyrics, and not as audio recording. But I can't confirm that. Type of Work: Music Registration Number / Date: PAu000513149 / 1983-05-31 Application Title: Thunder cracks. Title: Thunderclap / words and music by Bruce Springsteen. Description: 2 p.

  8. Mike Appel retained ownership (or part ownership) of some Springsteen songs after the two settled their litigation in 1977. Springsteen eventually bought back the rights to those songs. We've known this since long, and Bruce mentioned it in his biography. He now (rightfully) boasts that he's one of very very few artists who completely own their catalog. Brucebase mentions that CHEROKEE QUEEN is one of those songs, and Bruce bought it back in 1983. I searched the song's copyright entry at cocatalog.loc.gov and found that it was filed on 1983-05-31. I actually found that Bruce 6 songs with consecutive registration numbers were filed on that same day. These are: THUNDERCRACK, SONG FOR ORPHANS, STREET QUEEN, BALLAD OF A SELF-LOADING PISTOL, CHEROKEE QUEEN, SAGA OF THE ARCHITECT ANGEL. This seems to indicate (but is not a definite proof) that these 6 songs were kept by Mike Apple and Bruce bought them back at the same time (in 1983). I can't seem to find any reference to this in the books I have. My questions: - Do we have a complete list of songs that Mike Appel kept the rights to after 1977? - Do we know when these songs were bought back by Bruce? Was it at different stages? - Do we have any documentation/references?
  9. It was reissued in 2018. The reissue has "© 1995, 2018..." on the back cover. You can buy one here: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07GJ1GKWG As for the original 1995 issue, beware there are fakes out there. You can identify fakes from the printing quality and from the spine. And original 1995 sealed copy sells for easily more than a $100.
  10. Thank you! I added it to my page: http://www.springsteenlyrics.com/lyrics.php?song=becausethenight_2002-11-23
  11. Thank you. I updated this page accordingly: http://www.springsteenlyrics.com/lyrics.php?song=becausethenight_2002-11-23
  12. Do you still have the ticket stub from that show? If yes, can you send me a high quality scan?
  13. Thank you for the input. I think he sings "...a church we made..." and "...to another..." So it would be: I just wanna draw lines in the sand We're building a church we made of hands We're reaching to another, we're reaching to a friend We're reaching to a night that will never end I updated this page accordingly: http://www.springsteenlyrics.com/lyrics.php?song=becausethenight_2002-11-23
