  1. I'm going with with either an '88 show or a '92-'93 one as my top 2 bets for the next release.
  2. Because I'm a time traveler and by the end of the archive series in the year 2056 every show from the Wrecking Ball tour was released EXCEPT for Sunderland. Believe me, Sunderlandgate becomes a MASSIVE source of contention among the fans on BTLake (BTX and Greasy Lake merge into a super-forum in 2033 after the Pony Boy Wars) leading to the creation of 2 religions that lead to the destruction of the Springsteen message board community.
  3. This is a troll job. I remember someone pulled this exact same shit about 2 years ago over on BTX. And given that BTX has been down all week I'm guessing some of them are migrating over here to have their fun. It won't be Sunderland. Not today. Not tomorrow. Not next month. Not next year. Not ever.
  4. Hello and good day to you all. I would like to request the Flynn mix of 2000-06-27, MSG if anyone has it, please? Thanks!
  5. Thanks! Something I picked up on after listening to this was how the introduction Bruce gives during Save My Love serves as a reintroduction to the themes of inclusiveness and togetherness in music that Meeting/Take 'Em do to begin the show. And it's placement after Racing became unintentionally perfect after I readjusted things to place in Incident-Rosie. Much like Meeting/Take'Em kicks off a strong 7 pack to bring you into the show, Save My Love kicks off an emotional 7 pack that culminates with Incident into Rosie to close out the main set and creates a bookend that I didn't really notice until I listened to it.
  6. So yeah, thanks to some solid feedback, I put in Incident into Rosie because it's just not a truly special show without that combo, and I also readjusted the track placement of Disc 2 after listening to it by moving Fade Away and Racing up to the post-Where The Bands Are spot. I think it will flow better with that alternate order. In addition I changed the version of Badlands to make a better transition into the Incident-Rosie combo. So, here is version 2.0! Bigger, badder, and better than ever!!! Disc One 1. Take 'Em As They Come - Los Angeles, October 23, 1999 2. The Ties That Bind - Chicago, September 30, 1999 3.

  7. I'm glad you liked it! Speaking of Mohegan 2014, Night 2 was the basis for the first part of this compilation as that opening 7 pack was such a blast with all of the rarities right out of the gate. I even did consider strongly Seven Angels believe it or not but ended up not wanting to use any of the 2014 downloads because, well, they sound like total dog shit, especially when played alongside the ones since the 2016 tour. I do hope one day those get remastered and Mohegan #2 gets re-released (For some reason that one has not been available to buy for years). Jersey Girl from Metlife #3 was my choice from the start to close this whole thing out. With the fireworks going off and just how he sounded during it and the closing night of the NJ stand vibe it was a no-brainer. And Incident into Rosie from that show (That's my favorite version of that combo from the Modern Era live downloads) really does feel missing upon listening to Disc Three and I'm currently working on a new version of that disc to include it! Finally, Racing In The Street was an auto-include for me as it's tied for my favorite song next to The Price You Pay, and it's also my white whale that I've been chasing since I became a fan. How that song doesn't get played more is honest to God baffling to me.
  8. Lost and Incident were definitely tough ones to leave out, although I am rethinking Disc 3 a bit to include an Incident into Rosie just because it really would put this "show" over the top! But yes, it really is missing Sunny Day and that mistake should be rectified ASAP! Preferably a version with the most out of tune Sunny Day kid as everyone loves an out of tune Sunny Day kid, right?
  9. Yeah I really love that opening 7 pack too. It really flowed well together too.
  10. So, like most of you, I have had quite a lot of free time lately given that there's nowhere to go and nothing to do. So I decided to get around and actually put together my fantasy show compilation. I had been wanting to do this for some time after the live download series began, and after the Gothenburg 2012 archive release came out at the beginning of the month, I finally got the last piece of the puzzle I had been looking for to complete it: Where The Bands Are. So over the last few days I've been crafting this compilation using my Nero Burning ROM to allow me to edit the files so I could create smooth transitions between the songs so it would all flow together and really sound like an actual Bruce show. I did set a rule for myself when beginning this, which I'll explain now so you'll have a better understanding of my song version choices: Only E Street live versions from the Reunion Era and on. This is because my own personal journey into Bruce fandom began with the Reunion Tour, and also because outside of the occasional twang in Bruce's voice during the Reunion and Rising tours, along with the addition of the horns and backing singers during the WOAD and Wrecking Ball tours, the band overall has sounded consistently the same, and that allowed me to kind of immerse myself a little bit more when listening to this. It sounds pretty much exactly like what it would sound like if Bruce and the band were to play this show right now. That being said, here is the track listing, broken down by disc. Given that I only used the official live downloads to make this I regretfully won't post it here or anywhere else for that matter as I'd like to not violate any copyright laws or policies, so I provided which version I used for each song so if you're a madman like myself and own most of the live downloads, you can sort of listen along, so to speak. Anyways, here it is: Meeting In The Town Tonight - State Throoper's Fantasy Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band Show Disc One 1. Take 'Em As They Come - Los Angeles, October 23, 1999 2. The Ties That Bind - Chicago, September 30, 1999 3. Cynthia - East Rutherford, September 22, 2012 4. I Wanna Be With You - Rochester, February 27, 2016 5. Out In The Street - Helsinki, June 16, 2003 6. Rendezvous - Sydney, February 9, 2017 7. Janey Don't You Lose Heart - Brisbane, February 14, 2017 8. Backstreets - Baltimore, April 20, 2016 9. Independence Day - Los Angeles, March 17, 2016 10. The Promised Land - Los Angeles, October 23, 1999 11. None But The Brave - Zurich, July 31, 2016 12. Gotta Get That Feeling - Leeds, July 24, 2013 Disc Two 1. Cadillac Ranch - Paris, July 13, 2016 2. Tenth Avenue Freeze-Out - New York, July 1, 2000 3. Where The Bands Are - Gothenburg, July 28, 2012 4. Save My Love - Gothenburg, June 25, 2016 5. Loose Ends - Helsinki, July 31, 2012 6. The Price You Pay - New York, March 28, 2016 7. Fade Away - Philadelphia, February 12, 2016 8. Racing In The Street - Philadelphia, September 09, 2016 Disc Three 1. Bobby Jean - Helsinki, June 16, 2003 2. Born In The U.S.A. - Paris, July 13, 2016 3. Badlands - Chicago, September 30, 1999 4. Thunder Road - Barcelona, May 14, 2016 5. My Hometown - Philadelphia, October 20, 2009 6. Jungleland - East Rutherford, September 22, 2012 7. Born To Run - East Rutherford, August 30, 2016 8. Ramrod - New York, July 1, 2000 9. (Your Love Keeps Lifting Me) Higher And Higher - Philadelphia, October 20, 2009 10. Jersey Girl - East Rutherford, August 30, 2016 If you want me to do a deep dive into my song choices, I'll happily answer any questions you have. Some versions were chosen because I was there. Some because I really loved how that specific version sounded. And some versions of a song were chosen because they helped create a smoother transition, keeping the immersion factor going as best as I could. This is why I love the official live downloads so much, it finally let me create this with high quality versions of my favorite songs. Anyways, I hope you enjoy and let me know what you think!
  11. I'm going to guess that it's going to be either a Born To Run or Born In The U.S.A. tour release next.
