    Remember those? Before comedy videos were common, because there were only three networks. My first, shamelessly stolen from my mother. From 1960 - Eisenhower was still President :o

    Two of the six skits are among the best ever written: the Driving Instructor, and baseball.

     

    Abner Doubleday

     

    I still enjoy listening to comedy albums. I have the full George Carlin and Bob Newhart discographies and a handful of others.


  2. Volumes 1-6 and 16-19 are the only ones I really revisit. The three Hollywood Hills Garage discs hold some brilliant songs, though the drum machine can get annoying and there are multiple takes of some of the songs. The fun with these three volumes is finding the version of each song that you find essential, the ones you think are so good they overcome the drum machine fatigue. If you haven't heard Delivery Man, they're worth the listen just for that, but there are several fantastic songs from those sessions.

    My biggest concert regret when it comes to Bruce shows was probably not knowing This hard land when I got to hear it in a full band version in 2008. The song moved me to tears (it was played after Independence day which had also moved me to tears), but I wish I knew it. The other example I can think of was not knowing Janey don't you lose heart when I got to see it (full band) the same year.

    I'd love to hear a song I don't know yet at a Springsteen show.

    Off topic slightly, but this thread has reminded me of Bruce's words at the end of the WS film where he says something about having to walk through darkness can be difficult but morning is always up ahead. Can't remember his exact words.

    Something about that's where the next morning is.

    I'm sure Paolo has all the dialogue memorized or notated or encrypted on a chip in his brain.

    @Jerseyfornia, I'll try and think of some positive lines now cos I've realised most of mine have been pretty depressing!

    Honey, I'm tougher than the rest.

    How bright the sun shone, she lifted him in her arms and carried him home.

    You've got to learn to live with what you can't rise above (might've had that one already).

    Good idea!

    Not his lyric, but I think Seeger Sessions songs count.

    Keep your eyes on the prize...hold on.

    Thank you Paolo! I tried those but seems I have to take out a subscription? I may have missed but any freeware as i only have half a dozen old albums i have in wma that i won't to convert as a one off?

    If you upload those album files to a dropbox or other cloud service and provide me with a link, I'll convert them, make sure they're properly tagged and get them back to you.

    EDIT: I may even already have some of the albums. I've got thousands upon thousands of albums already in mp3 format.
