    Please excuse my stupid question but what is the difference between what is available and what is sold out? 

    "Collectible CD box sets containing 24 standard CDs are NOW AVAILABLE.(Limited Edition factory-pressed CD box sets are SOLD OUT.)"

    Hi! Regular Nugs-Releases are pressed on CDR, the are not factory-pressed silver Discs. There were limited Edition factory pressed CDs of Milano ans Metlife 2016 in the past.

    Am I the only one to be disappointed at the new album news as it means the BITUSA boxset wont be coming out this summer?

    I also hoped for something "big", either way the BITUSA-Box or Tracks 2 (hopefully containing filmed material this time. But maybe if they hurry to get the new album out and if the once leaked contract details are not a fake there's another 6 months to get a box set out for christmas.

    I completely disagree with Erik Flanagan. "Soul Driver" found its ultimate arrangement in December 1992 with the guitar intro. I'm thrilled to get an official version of this, as all the bootlegs I have of this are rather inferior in quality.

    Yes, "Soul Driver" is beautiful". Also it is a good choice for a '92 show with lesser played songs like Driver, Gloria's Eyes and Big Muddy. 1992 shows sounded (and felt) a liitle different compared to 1993. I hope there are more shows from that era to follow. Hard to imagine now, but by the time I thought "Enough 'Cover me' for now", because from 1984 through 1992 that song was played at every show on every tour. Thought it needed a rest. But I remember an old backstreets article of 1984 where there was talk about "Jungleland" needing a rest for it was played on every show of every tour 1975-1984. Couldn't imagine a Springsteen Show without that one, then a few decades later I got uede to hear it once in a while.

  4. Well, in fact it is not Bruce singing the vocals. It is Bob Dylan, who tried to sound like Elvis Presley. But Nils had already instructed his record company (at the time run by the new jersian lodge of the Freemasons) to print record sleeves saying it is Bruce. Bob wanted to set clear in an appearance on the David Letterman Show that in fact he is singing on the track. But in the last minute he was hypnotized by a secret organisation controlled by Bill Gates and forgot about it. Rumours say that the real Elvis, who at the time lived in Jon Landau`s basement, freaked out about Bob trying to sound like him, but decided to let everybody think he is dead.

    And how does Scientology fit into all this?

    I have no idea, but of course it is Bruce singing on "Valentine", no doubt:)

    Oh geez, he's not a saint in the city you know.  What's everybody getting their shorts in a knot for.  I'll wait for all the facts when it goes to court.  Doesn't change a thing as far as I'm concerned, nobody's perfect.  It was equivalent to one drink, blood alcohol level 0.02, LOL.  I wouldn't call that anywhere near drunk.  Per the NYT "since the arrest occurred in a national park, federal prosecutors will pursue the case. The singer will make his first court appearance virtually later this month."


    I agree. "Driving drunk" seems a bit overblown when you look at the actual blood alcohol level.

    Maybe Bruce needed a shot after he heard that Taylor Swift is gonny be the next... just kidding.

    He was caught breaking laws/rules and now he is gonna take on responsibility. But I'm not close being shocked or disappointed . It's not that he drank like crazy and jumped in the car with 0.2

  6. As some songs from "The River" date back to the Darkness-Sessions I can say, that this whole era Darkness/The River including all the outtakes released and unreleased for me is the essence of Bruce`s work. Deep songs, commercial love songs, party Rock'n'Roll, potential Pop Hits (at first drawn back or given to others - you have to be a very special artist to do that!!!) And the first time 3-at least nearly 4 hour-shows being played. I sure love the earlier stuff too, but here master-class began!

    Hi! I got both, the vinyl and CD-Version. My CD-Version doesn't have the booklet, too, just an empty sleeve like yours. So it might be right that there is no booklet. I contacted the store about it, too, but didn't even get an answer.
