  1. I don’t think it’s Bruce shaping his legacy, 74-81 represents 7 years of his career. Even if they recorded everything from that period it would still be dwarfed by forty years that followed. They are simply spacing out the recordings they have for those years. As for the ‘apex’ that’s open to definition. Personally, ‘88 is an apex for me.
  2. If I was going to be picky I'd say maybe we could have had another Euro '88 show before LA, but as the first LA show was not the best sound quality wise, if I want to hear something from that stand, we now have this release. There will be certain tours that I skip when they roll around, but I don't see them as denigrating the series. I just play some of the many released shows for another a month and wait for the next one.
  3. I genuinely don't get the complaints about repetition in the Archives. Even when the sets varied 'wildly' say 2013, they always drew from a bank of songs. Springsteen has never been an artist noted for setlist unpredictability and that's definitely true of any tours before the Reunion. If fans want the Archive series to continue, they are going to have to accept that repetition will be integral to continuity. For me, it's all about the small details. For example you could say well MSG'88 isn' t different on paper to Detroit '88 but if you don't pick up MSG '88 you aren't going to get the
  4. I’ll go for 92/93 see if the conspiracy theory of them using shorter turn around times for less popular tours holds water...
  5. Nice download. I enjoy the Reunion gigs, although in this case the three rarities; Loose Ends, Back In Your Arms, Mary Queen of Arkansas, do very little for me as I'm not a fan of the songs themselves.
  6. I’d be ok with a Reunion gig, although a Rising release would be a pleasant surprise.
  7. Actually part of the remit of the Archive series is to ‘reclaim’ recordings of famous boots by issuing superior quality recordings; thus making the boots redundant. More often than not they achieve this.
  8. It will be interesting to see how things develop. I think a lot is riding on the efficacy of the vaccines. I think vaccine passports may become the norm, especially for big live gigs.
  9. I don’t see that happening. There’s an informative article in Rolling Stone think about why socially distanced gigs are just not financially viable,
  10. There's the always the opposite perspective where the demand for live music is increased. Two music festivals in the UK just sold out pretty much instantaneously.
  11. You would hope so, but it won't happen. Too much money in stadiums.
  12. I also forgot my biggest criticism; the tiered ticket prices. Utter rip off. I made exceptions to see The Rolling Stones, Roger Waters, and Paul Simon, during their last UK appearances because I knew it could possibly be the last time. At the end of The Stones stadium gig I was thinking it was the last time for me, even if they carried on.
