  1. Will give it another go then Sometimes tracks just sneak up on you when you least expect them to while you can sometimes become fatigued by other, more immediately accessible ones
  2. I love the Trenton version and that is coming from someone who strongly dislike the D&D tour generally. But the LTY version is just mesmerisingly compelling to listen to and blows every other version out of the water. Currently threatening to knock Janey off the top slot for my favourite LTY track.
  3. Been watching these videos on repeat these last few and I think the band sound great. The guitars sound incredible and someone should tell John Altschiller that is how to mix the E Street Band; real goosebumps moment when the band kicked in on Ghosts, which sounds like it will be a real monster live. And love seeing Steve looking so energised, it’s like he has been revitalised by the live spontaneity of the LTY sessions. So the vocals were a lower key and a bit ring rusty. To be expected in the circumstances and in no way detracted from what was a very welcome tonic for me. It is never going to have the same power and elasticity it did years ago but you can bet it will still be in full working order if a tour ever comes around...
  4. Perennially late to the party as ever but have only just found time to download and listen to this... A magnificent addition to the archive programme. Crushingly good performance, great setlist and it sounds tremendous. Was never that happy with the shit hot and rockin boot so feel I am really hearing the show for the first time and as good as night one was, this is stunning; easily the best 1975 show to date. Miami Steve was on fire during the BTR tour. It does not sound as good as the Clearmountain mixed Sony release but it was never, ever going to, and taken in that context, it sounds really good. If you had to bottle and distil the essence of rock n roll, you could do worse that Carol from this release. So good it might even make Oscar the grouch smile ...
  5. Ditto, had never heard of them to be honest but played some stuff on you tube and ended up getting the first album. Really enjoy all but the last couple of tracks which aren’t really my thing but some real belters in there. £6.99 very well spent thanks to this thread! Been playing You’re still a mystery, rollercoaster and reckless love a lot in particular.
  6. With you on this in that I think it sits with Sam’s Town and Battle Born as the very best of their work. Brilliant album. Only one duff track for me, which is fire in bone. Can’t stand it, simply because I don’t like that jerky white-boy funk style of music but of the others, every single one is absolute class without exception. Love this album and as others have said, it pairs very well with LTY.
  7. No worries! I went with this: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Rioddas-External-Portable-Rewriter-Desktop/dp/B07JGWBLVH Hope that link works ok!
  8. A very good point lol. Forgive my brain fart!!
  9. I use iTunes to copy to my iPod so tend to buy ALAC which is lossless, CD quality (apple version of FLAC) and downloading is really easy. Even if you don’t use the nugster app, you can just go to “your shows”, click on “download” and when the tracklist pops up in another window, just follow the very simple instructions to download. The from your download folder, just copy and paste the tracks into your “automatically upload to iTunes” folder in iTunes media and it will be there ready to synch to your iPod. Or if you want to stick with CD, just go to Amazon and search for external CD drive in electronics. Can pick a decent one up for £25.00. It’s what I did when my new laptop didn’t come with an integrated drive. These are simple to use and just plug into a USB port like an external hard drive.
  10. And Coventry 2016 (brilliant show) but agree entirely. Plus, it has been over 2 years since Roxy 75 was released so BTR has to be a shoo-in. Hammersmith 2 is a great show but still hope one day for one with an official release of I think it’s gonna work out fine. Very happy with H2 though!
  11. I think it just proves how much better everything sounds undercover in an arena. Crazy to think this was my fourth Bruce show of which three were in arenas. Sadly also the last indoor show for me too. Had been desperate to hear Because the Night And was so thrilled when Roy started his piano intro... it is pretty ubiquitous now but at the time, I wanted to hear it more than anything, and wow, what a version it was. I know some people were critical of the sound at the 02 when it first opened, but I think it is a great venue.
  12. Bruce plays prominent solos on both tracks, with backing vocals on Float Away and joint lead vocals on Black Boots. Sounds really raw and pumped too. Matt O’Ree taught Bruce’s son guitar apparently. Both tracks feature on great albums too.
  13. Some great duets with Southside on the Xmas holiday shows too, especially The Fever from 2004.
  14. Meh. Easily the weakest song on BTR and so many better tracks could have replaced it. A track I always skip on live releases too with the exception of 88. Love the versions with the segue into Born to be Wild...
  15. Great show. Crystal Cat did a great version but hoping this one comes up the next time Nugs release a 2007 show. Had we not had Greensboro last week, this may have been the perfect Xmas bonus release given it was right before Xmas and had the obligatory Santa Claus is coming to town...
