  1. I forgot to post this in here. https://cantfindtickets.wordpress.com/2020/09/13/bruce-springsteen-live-downloads-review-february-1st-2014-johannesburg-za/
  2. Also, new review: https://cantfindtickets.wordpress.com/2020/09/13/bruce-springsteen-live-downloads-review-february-1st-2014-johannesburg-za/
  3. First Friday is no more. RIPIP. Many blogs are in the pipeline, such as Johannesburg 2014, which will be posted as soon as I finish it. Also next week's Archive, because Backstreets reckon Archive #58 is being released as soon as next week, probably before Friday as well, which is canny. Until then, you can celebrate our fallen monthly experience by reading about the 40 Springsteen concerts released since August 2017. Maybe listen to "Letter To You" a couple of times while doing so too? https://cantfindtickets.wordpress.com/category/springsteens-archive-series-in-2017/ htt
  4. https://cantfindtickets.wordpress.com/2020/09/03/bruce-springsteen-live-downloads-review-january-29th-2014-cape-town-sa/ The 2014 Cape Town stand is now done, and the last South African show from Johannesburg is coming soon.

  6. Sorry mate, I've only just seen this reply. What else can I say but thank you very much for your feedback! I'm glad its served you well in your live versions project (they're the best projects, aren't they? ). I hope you enjoyed the Passaic show, September 19th, I'm guessing? And I hope you found the Nassau NYE '80 remix to be better than the original release, I know I did, and I didn't even mind the 2015 release
  7. This has been on my mind all day, and it really sucks. Chadwick Boseman had much more to do before his time was cut short, but Godammit if he didn't make an impact in the time he did have. He played cultural icons galore, starred in two of the most culturally significant films of this century, and while he was battling his illness he helped gross about $7 billion in the box office - it's staggering to think how much more he would have made in the end. He was, in short, an absolute boss. Avengers Endgame's 'Portals' scene is the greatest experience I've ever had watching a film
  8. One other thing I'll give this show credit for is that it's made me crave listening to more from outside of E Street. I've hoyed July 25th, 1992 back onto my Apple Music and I kinda forgot how enjoyable it was. That "Better Days" is stellar.
  9. No I think he's in the car, but Ole's at the wheel
  10. You know what would be cool at first but end being really egregious six months later? A poll about the best Springsteen covers. Someone should try doing that someday... Anyway, here's a couple of blogs on the subject: https://cantfindtickets.wordpress.com/category/the-best-of-springsteens-covers/ - Read them now before I post the updated Definitive Songs blogs in the next week or so.
  11. Oh my God somebody put "Drive Fast" over clips of Stuntman Bob from Death Proof The two most certainly don't go together and I LOVE IT.
  12. Oh, and I'm up to the letter "S" if anyone was curious. The first part of this blog could potentially be posted tomorrow.
  13. Haha it does take some time and lots of listening, but it's something I really enjoy doing regardless. Take tonight as an instance, I've spent over an hour writing down song titles alphabetically, but it's an enjoyable process knowing it'll likely be worth the time spent in the end. And I continue to find it mental when people say they downloaded a show based on what I've written in a guide. Like, I know that's what I wrote them for, but for other fans to actually do something based on what I reckon?! Staggering, but always massively appreciated.
  14. Ok, I've given it some thought and I know exactly what to do. Hang fire everyone, should take a few hours (or a day or two).
  15. Thanks for taking the time to read, I'm glad these write-ups have helped you in even the smallest way. I'll admit that I've given thought as to how I probably focus on the positives more than the negatives, but I think that's really the Archive Series summed up in a nutshell. Funnily enough when I first started planning the Definitive Songs guides I began writing album-by-album. In the end though I really like the setlist-style format and I like to think there's an exciting unpredictability as to what songs are included in whatever guide. Saying that, there are also the tags attached tha
  16. I can't remember when I first heard "Born to Run", "Jungleland" or "Backstreets", but I can remember the moment I listened to "Racing in the Street" for the first time very clearly. And the rest is hysterical history!
  17. Would love for the September 4th release to go off without a hitch, but I'd also be cool if they want to take an extra week with it - that way it'll only be 3 weeks until October 2nd when they'll hopefully be properly back on track. Regardless, I'm going to try and have my Cape Town #3 review finished and ready for publishing for next Friday just in case. Only 17 songs out of 30 left to write about!
  18. They're 2 of the 24 but I didn't want to mention them out of fear of spoiling and not getting clicks ruining the surprise
  19. Let's try to have a think about peak versions then... "Thunder Road" - as Zoom said 84/85 versions are the best. I like the 99/00 ones too; "Tenth" - 99/00; "Night" - 75, or any era really, I've made another point about this in my upcoming review of Cape Town #3 2014; "Backstreets" - My favourite live version is MSG 88, and there few bad live versions in general, but it's one where the studio holds up on its own (not to say the other 7 don't); "Born to Run" - again as Zoom said, 84/85. LA '85 is one of my most played Archive tracks; "She's The One" - Those '88 ver
  20. btw, that spoiler list is immediately wrong because I seemed to completely forget Stockholm 2005 was released in 2020 I'd still like to know all of your top 10s mind.
  21. A bit of both, honestly I'm tempted to both post the obvious suspects now on here, write a "top ten so far" blog or just avoid the question and ask you guys what your top 10s are. So I'll share the current top 11 off the top of my head on this thread in no particular order, because I'm nice like that Spoiler tag attached for those who don't want to know. This release might have more gems than any other from the tour. It's a diamond of a show.
  22. So after a quick count of certain songs that came to mind from the year's releases so far - to confirm - there are 24 songs currently vying for the top 10. It's only August ffs
