  1. The final piece of the 2014 jigsaw puzzle. Enjoy! https://cantfindtickets.wordpress.com/2021/08/04/e-street-review-may-18th-2014-uncasville-ct-mohegan-sun-arena/
  2. As promised, here's May 17th, 2014. Enjoy! https://cantfindtickets.wordpress.com/2021/07/30/bruce-springsteen-live-downloads-review-may-17th-2014-uncasville-ct-mohegan-sun-arena/ Next week (assuming there'll be an Archive delay) the High Hopes Tour ends with an E Street Review of May 18th. As this May 17th show is the last you can download from Nugs and Bruce's Live site, that means you can now check out my full reviews of all officially released and available shows from the tour! https://cantfindtickets.wordpress.com/category/springsteens-archive-series-in-2014/
  3. It's much appreciated mate, thank you! I had the East Berlin one a few years back, but can't remember what I did with it. I vividly remember playing it to keep myself awake one night when waiting up for one of the 2017 Australia/New Zealand SLVs
  4. Hi! I'm looking for July 19th, 1988 - East Berlin and September 24th, 1999 - Philadelphia if anyone can help out with them. And if it's not asking too much, is it possible to upload them anywhere other than Mega? It's acting up for me these days. Cheers!
  5. Uncasville #1 2014 coming tomorrow (Friday July 30th), but right now here's NJ '85 for posterity purposes. https://cantfindtickets.wordpress.com/2021/07/24/new-from-the-springsteen-archive-august-22nd-1985-east-rutherford-nj-giants-stadium/
  6. Class! Seeger isn't everyone's cup of tea, but Wembley really showcases Bruce and the Band on passionate form. Alongside Jazzfest, it's a fantastic insight to modern U.S. history. The Bridge School Benefit isn't everyone's favourite either, though I think people dislike how it was a delayed August release more than the show itself. I first properly checked out the bootleg after listening to Broadway and wanting more acoustic "Dancing in the Dark", so I'm happy it got an official unearthing. "Follow That Dream" is another gem on there too. I'd been listening to that "Fire" for years after finding a "RARE" version on YouTube around 2011ish. His vocals and antics combined make a mint - maybe the most mint - rendition.
  7. Thanks for giving them your time! Hopefully the Asbury and Rapids write-ups are equally as enjoyable for you. My shout for first 2006 show to check out would be Jazzfest, purely on the significance and emotion of "How Can a Poor Man" and "My City of Ruins" alone - and they genuinely aren't the only songs of importance on the night. There's a lot of emotion to Wembley too (and I implore everyone to listen to "Froggie"), but Bruce wasn't lying when he called April 30th one of the "great moments of my performing career". And if you end up opting for Wembley, all of Jazzfest is on YouTube at the end of the day.
  8. Cheers for checking it out, Daisey. All of these shows need more listens, even the ones we've played well over a hundred times.
  9. Never anticipated this kind of feedback when I firsr wrote that Grand Rapids 2005 review in February 2018. Can't stress enough how much I appreciate it.
  10. Thanks for giving them a chance, it's more than appreciated and it keeps me inspired to continue writing them. Here's to the next U.S.A. World Tour show, but until then, this one needs replaying over and over!
  11. Oh man that version is class. I'd never heard it before, so thanks a bunch for sharing it! I love that calmer intro and Bruce's similar vocal styling - and the rest of it
  12. Many thanks for checking it out! I've just skimmed Brucebase and "Darkness" follows "Seeds" on the August 19th show, so it's (fingers crossed) more than likely we'll get to hear those Dylanesque chords someday. Gerrin! And at the risk of not continuing the conversation about the acoustics of Giants Stadium, I need to clarify I didn't mean "I'm on Fire" is only the casual audience's favourite, haha! Sorry if I worded that poorly, I was just trying to imply it's one that the casual audience love more than, say "Lucky Town" or "Roulette', for example.
  13. Not the first time I've used that word either https://cantfindtickets.wordpress.com/2021/05/08/new-from-the-springsteen-archive-december-13th-1992-boston-ma-boston-garden/ (It's in the introduction, fwiw)
  14. I think it's pretty damn good! https://cantfindtickets.wordpress.com/2021/07/24/new-from-the-springsteen-archive-august-22nd-1985-east-rutherford-nj-giants-stadium/ Also
  15. I'd never heard this version before, and only learnt of this song because of one of Bruce's radio shows last year. I've now played this about 5 times tonight. Thank you for mentioning it! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XB7WFVGRknE&t=1s
  16. And given the fact they released Western Stars on blu-ray, I think this one's kinda set in stone.
  17. From the Backstreets article: I mean, you can pre-rent on Apple, I suppose, but pre-ordering seems to confirm to me this will be a DVD release.
  18. MINT!!! If you want a taste of the show based on the (now unavailable) Archive release, hopefully this helps: https://cantfindtickets.wordpress.com/2018/12/25/new-from-the-springsteen-archive-no-nukes-1979/
  19. Seeing as No Nukes is in the news, I'm gonna link this for those who didn't get around to downloading it. Here's what ya missed: https://cantfindtickets.wordpress.com/2018/12/25/new-from-the-springsteen-archive-no-nukes-1979/
  20. With no new Archive (don't fret folks, it'll come!!!) this week, my High Hopes Tour reviews roll on. We are awfully close to the finish line, as this week the focus is on Hershey. https://cantfindtickets.wordpress.com/2021/07/16/bruce-springsteen-live-downloads-review-may-14th-2014-hershey-pa-hersheypark-stadium/
  21. Haha thanks for having a look around, it's appreciated. Bruce's music might be my biggest passion, but it's far from being the only one.
  22. Yeah pretty much mate. They're both 'finished' and I have moved on to future projects, but the work never really stops until they're published. I tend to skim through them, make sure I haven't forgotten anything I've wanted to say, and next thing I know it's posting day! Depending on when Nugs drop this month's and August's Archive Series release, they might be out before my planned dates of July 30th and August 13th. We'll have to see, haha!
  23. I'm anticipating Archive #69 this Friday, so in the meantime I thought I'd quickly update this with the three officially released shows I've reviewed since June 13th: Berkeley '78, Houston and Albany '14.
