  1. If it is an e street band album then maybe the rerecorded old songs will include contributions by Danny and Clarence.
  2. I am starting this thread for anyone who is a fan of Western Stars and/or motorbikes. These are the first 2 paragraphs from Putt Mossman’s entry in the AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame: “Orren "Putt" Mossman was the most famous stunt motorcyclist of the first half of the 20th century. Mossman and his troupe traveled America and the world putting on spectacular extravaganzas in front of crowds numbering from the hundreds to tens of thousands.

  3. Found a nice concert version of half of the album from an Italian Light of Day Benefit show.
  4. I am English so don’t know much about baseball but that is not going to stop me having my three cents worth on the speedball question. The earliest lyrics were “He threw that ball, speedball down the plate, make you look just like a fool” which were changed to “He could throw that speedball by you, make you look like a fool boy” I think the phrase “speedball down the plate” may have been an intentional mistake to help define the character who is singing the song.

  7. The UK Americana chart only started in 2016. Western Stars has been at no 1 for 20 of the 32 weeks since its release, Bruce has more weeks at no 1 than any other artist. Songs From The Film did not appear in the Americana chart but was in the Soundtrack Chart.

  8. Western Stars was in the Americana category. The nominated albums were: Years To Burn — Calexico And Iron & Wine Who Are You Now — Madison Cunningham Oklahoma — Keb’ Mo’ Tales Of America — J.S. Ondara Walk Through Fire — Yola
