  1. This might be my favorite live version of Thunder Road. The changes in vocal delivery and inflection really hit me hard. Not sure why but that is why I love live music and you can't judge a show by a setlist.
  2. Fair enough. I hope you get the shows you are looking for in the future.
  3. There are already great shows from almost every tour post 75 so I assume you are done with the series? Just kidding sorta but I as a huge fan of live music, this mentality is so strange to me. I want EVERY show released. To each their own though. Cheers.
  4. Who cares about the setlist? The performance is the only thing that matters.
  5. All versions of the bootleg and the archive version have the same mix. But the archive release was compressed way too much when mastered which is why it sounds bad.
  6. So do we think we are getting a release tomorrow?
  7. They can only remaster Agora and remove some of the compression to make it less ear bleedingly loud. No way to remix as they only have a 2 track stereo master available. They have shown no real interest in getting the master multi-tracks from that museum in Cleveland or wherever it is now so it will never happen as much as we want it to.
  8. It is VERY rare that an official release has not leaked at least a week or so prior to the release date in my experience.
  9. This release is light years ahead of the bootlegs. It is the 2nd best sounding show behind Passaic 2.
  10. Yeah I am the same way for the most part. I think Atlanta is the 2nd best recording we have now for the 78 tour with Passaic 2 still being the best. But for me this one is not too far behind. Others may feel differently but this was a very welcome surprise after the butchering of Winterland. Here is my list of the available 78 archive releases for sound quality only in my opinion... 1. Passaic 2 - The Gold Standard 2. Atlanta - Best non Clearmountain mix 3. Passaic 1 - Good overall mix with a few misses but compression hurts it 4. Winterland 1 - Sounds slightly better than the bootleg to me but compression is an issue 5. Agora - Same as Winterland 6. Roxy - Compression totally ruins this one for me. The mix is ok but I cant listen to more than a song or 2 before faitigue sets in. 7. Winterland 2 - The worst mixing and mastering job they have released since Altschiller was hired. Shame. This deserves a remix. 8. Houston - I am not a fan of mono recordings but it doesnt sound bad for what it is, but I dont listen to this at all.
  11. Yes I posted the same thing there. Probaby BTX too
  12. Update. This show is now in my top 3 archive releases behind Passaic 2 and Tempe 80. It sounds better than Passaic 1 to me. Only Passaic 2 sounds better in my opinion. Awesome release.
  13. This show is now in my top 5 archive releases. One of the best Altschiller mixes.
  14. The mix on this makes listening to the show like a brand new experience for me. Marked upgrade from the JEMS bootleg I have.
  15. I don't think I have heard this one before. Looks like all prior links for this show are dead. Any kind soul willing to post a new link? Thank you!!!
  16. This is an unreal upgrade. Crystal clear well mixed soundboard. One of the best sounding shows from this tour in my opinion. Sounds better than some of the official archive mixes to be honest. How Bruce Inc cannot seem to do what JEMS does is mind-boggling. This is a must have.
  17. Prove It 78 over everything else with personal favorite being Winterland 1. The longer the tour went on the longer the song was in general which means more of Bruce's screaming guitars. Can anyone give me specific examples of Steve's solos. I have a hard time telling who does what without video evidence and I don't watch a lot of video footage. In fact I am ashamed to admit that for years when I was much younger, me and a buddy raved about the Prove It Intro and Solo thinking it was Steve. We thought stupidly that Steve was the lead guitar player and Bruce was rhythm so of course Steve played the solos. We hadn't seen them live or any video of them live at that point. Looking back it seems so foolish but at the time it seemed totally logical.
  18. On Hoffman's someone posted the DR values and they are bad. DR7 which is the worst for an Altschiller mastering I have ever seen. Terrible as it looked like he had a more sensible hand than Adam but guess not.
  19. I don't want to crap on this release as I am sure it is a fine show but is anyone else a touch disappointed?
  20. My top five. Probably didn't change much. I am basing on both sound quality and how much I listen to tracks from them when they come up in my shuffle rotation. 1. Passaic 9/20/78 - Still the gold standard for the archive series 2. Tempe 11/5/80 -BluRay Rip plus HD files of the songs from Nugs. The best sounding official release by Bruce bar none in my opinion. 3. LA 9/27/85 - I prefer the sound and feel of this show to the 84 shows personally. 4. Nassau 12/31/80 - The remix is miles ahead of the original version. The mastering could be improved and if so it would move up my list to #3. 5. Helsinki 06/06/03 - I love the mix of this. Very detailed and excellent separation.
