  1. i would be interested in what he has to say about Jackson Cage. I could never figure out what that's about.
  2. Many thanks. This is a wonderful DVD and the downloads are well set out.
  3. What about 'Outside looking in' although it might be a little rowdy to be called a ballad
  4. Also which songs were snippeted DURING the intros, such as Macho Man as one example ?
  5. Comparing the audience recording to the sbd both are 4m 40s approx from the opening notes to the fade-out.Also at the ''now some folks are born into a good life'' line, Roy's piano is noticeably clearer on Nugs.
  6. Many thanks for this, the Portland 25th show has always been a favourite and this is great too. The strange thing is after converting the files to wav with Traders Little Helper my cd writing software refused to recognize them. After a bit of trial and error I found that putting those WAV files into Audacity and saving them again as WAV, those files did write to CD. Strange !
  7. Highway Patrolman 1984 definitely Man at the top East Troy 1984 with Nils Mansion on the hill LA 1999
  8. And Youngstown had it's own great delivery of lines too, particularly ''Now the yard's just scrap and rubble, those big boys did what Hitler couldn't do''.
  9. I don't know if this has been posted on Greasy Lake before but this is fascinating.
  10. Many thanks for these wonderful shows which make up for the lack of Rising shows in the Live Archive.I've written the Miami show to discs with selected songs from Tampa and Sacramento as bonus.I was hoping for more of Soozie's violin in the Junglelend intro but there are plenty of songs from the first 3 albums to enjoy and of course Dion on one song.
  11. The true outakes for 1975-85 were overdubs that were rejected
  12. On the bootleg cd Live 1985-75 The outtakes (supposedly!)released by Catch 22 there is a 'Glory Days' from Meadowlands 19 Aug 1984.It could be that one or any of the LA 1985 shows versions.
  13. 2008-10-16 - HAMMERSTEIN BALLROOM, NEW YORK CITY, NY With John Legend: IF YOU'RE OUT THERE Solo acoustic: THE PROMISED LAND / THIS HARD LAND With Billy Joel and his band, Patti Scialfa, and Roy Bittan: TENTH AVENUE FREEZE-OUT / MOVIN' OUT (ANTHONY'S SONG) / THUNDER ROAD / A MATTER OF TRUST / SPIRIT IN THE NIGHT (with John Legend and India Arie) / ALLENTOWN / THE RISING (with John Legend and India Arie) / NEW YORK STATE OF MIND / GLORY DAYS / RIVER OF DREAMS / BORN TO RUN / PEOPLE GET READY (with John Legend and India Arie) / SIGNED, SEALED, DELIVERED I'M YOURS (with John Legend, India Arie, and Barack Obama) "Change Rocks" benefit show for Barack Obama's presidential campaign. Bruce first backs John Legend for a song, and then does a pair of solo acoustic songs. Then, after Billy Joel plays "Miami 2017 (Seen The Lights Go Out On Broadway)" and "Baby Grand" with his daughter Alexa Ray Joel, Bruce, Patti Scialfa and Roy Bittan join Joel and his band for the rest of the set - a mixture of Joel and Springsteen songs. John Legend and India Arie also guest on "Spirit In The Night", "The Rising", and "People Get Ready", plus Stevie Wonder's classic "Signed, Sealed, Delivered I'm Yours" with Barack Obama. Is it this show? If so you can also see Nils Lofgren on stage in NYSoM.
  14. At least he will have progressed beyond 'Sweet Little Sixteen' !!
  15. There is a non runner listed at Wolverhampton today called Padleyourowncanoe. Maybe it's Lost in the flood !! Also historically there was Red Rum Incorporated
  16. Thanks for this, great reading Quote from the above ''Landau's memo lays out a plan to distribute copies of the Agora broadcast recording to stations in upcoming tour markets to air a few days before Springsteen and the band hit town, priming the pump for the performances and undoubtedly ensuring those shows were sellouts by the time they arrived. "The one exception to the use of a prerecorded tape would be our show at Winterland," he writes, where the San Francisco show would air live on local FM station KSAN as well as key markets in the Northwest.'' Compare this to what Toby Scott says about Agora Release notes from Toby Scott: I found the seven Agora tape reels in a box that had been returned from the Rock'n Roll Hall Of Fame. The tapes were part of an exclusive Springsteen exhibit “Asbury Park to the Promised Land”. It wasn’t until the request to release this show came up that the tapes needed to be found. Not at Sony, not at Thrill Hill Archives, not at the archiving company. Last known location was the Rock'n Roll Hall of Fame. They informed me what box to look in and there they were, marked with the original indication of speed, tracks and show date. I am aware that the tapes sent out to stations in Nov/Dec 1978 may not have been high quality reel to reel tapes but it seems to illustrate the lack of care in the archive when one of Bruce's most famous shows took time to be located. Let's hope 4 Nov 1976 and 20 Aug 1981 have survived despite this.
  17. I finally saw this last night in a small theatre and enjoyed it very much. I have really enjoyed ethnic British movies in the past such as 'East is East' and 'Bend it like Beckham' and despite the nasty xenophobic scenes this was funny and uplifting.Matt's father played by Rob Brydon is hilarious as a Roger Daltrey lookalike and Eliza's father Marcus Brigstocke acts like a John Cleese character. The scenes where they suddenly burst into a song and dancing routine or recite lyrics may seem a little corny but they are appropriate to defuse situations which would otherwise descend into violence. The use of the Jungleland sax solo in one scene is particularly effective. Any factual mistakes in the film are by the way and did not affect my enjoyment. The fact that Javed got into Bruce by listening to the albums, rather than hearing a couple of hits on the radio rang true to me. I would probably not have been into Bruce after merely hearing 'Dancing in the dark' or 'I'm on fire' on the radio. Instead I bought the albums, went to see the 1985 show and started collecting the live stuff.The non-Bruce music in the film is very effective too.I am on the look out for the book now.
  18. I have this show on a fan release but it doesn't include the last song by Bon Jovi.
