  1. Interesting comment this one - and proof that we all have our own preferences when it comes to recordings. I rarely listen to any USA tape from after the middle of September 1984 these days because of that hideous trigger on Max's drums. I'm glad Toby Scott et al. recorded these shows properly (snare and digital snare on separate tracks) so that the latter stays well clear of the NUGS releases!
  2. Agreed. I like the 5 and 6 August 1984 mixes, 20 August 1984 and 27 September 1985 are fine but a little dry for me… but this one just pops out the speaker brilliantly. One of my favourite archive releases. One other thing that I’ve not seen anybody mention: how brilliant is Gary here? His bass playing throughout is wonderful.
  3. Yep, add me to this list. Perhaps if we were to end up with 50 USA shows from 1985 (not happening, I know) I’d be a little bit ambivalent by the end, but this is all part of the legacy.
  4. Think there were a fair few who did the double that weekend. That naturally affects our view, especially of London. Venue didn’t particularly help either.
  5. Correct. Bruce by numbers, completely dialled in show.
  6. The worst Springsteen show I've ever seen... I really hope it isn't this!
  7. And the widely-circulating (incomplete) boot was a soundboard, too. I’d be stunned if they had anything other than the Meadowlands stand from 1984/Giants Stadium and LA 1985 in multitrack based on everything that’s been discussed in the various places since the start of the series.
  8. This. Although the London version (30 May 2008), with Bruce's intro speech, comes very close. I still think the success of the Barcelona version was a factor in Bruce opening the Super Bowl HT show with Tenth a few months later...
  9. I may change my theory to Springsteen in the West Pier, Brighton, then!
  10. Given how much Spotify presumably paid for it, I'd be stunned if they sold sub-licence rights. Same as Netflix sharing the original Broadway video around to broadcasters.
  11. Honestly, and this comment may come back to haunt me, but I cannot think of anything else noteworthy here that would be under consideration. Bruce simply doesn't just do interviews for the sake of it. We know that they're not extending this latest run of SoB. Previous history says that he'd only promote a new product (e.g. a USA boxset) upon release. Launching SITWE on a national radio station - the most popular breakfast show out there - makes sense to me. So, like I said, I'm fully expecting to be wrong. I'll let the insiders starting their mocking now.
  12. Jim, as a part-time taper (no, never attempted Bruce, others are much better!), I love hearing your stories about the travel and the taping process as much as those about the show. They've been fascinating. Love the remastered releases, they really pop out. On a cloudy day in London this afternoon they're just the tonic!
