  1. Fenway Park, Sept. 7, 2003 is my desire.
  2. Basically each and every selection from Darkness on the Edge of Town. The studio release never grabbed me (still doesn't, actually). But on Live 75-85, those songs shine. Plus Independence Day and Jersey Girl. Definitely the Bruce album that sent my fandom into a different realm. Not many artists can give you 40 songs and leave you wanting more!
  3. I honestly had a feeling July 9, 1981 would be released after Bruce and Patti surprised me with that acoustic Jersey Girl. I figured, "Hey, they recorded the whole 1981 show where Jersey Girl came from, so why not?" Of course, we all try to look smart after the fact. So I'll get out in front of why this month will be Fenway (Sept. 7 2003): Ties in nicely to Bruce joining the Dropkick Murphys there last week. A Jersey boy joined a Fenway show to help local residents. So now he could use funds from selling a Fenway show and let Boston folks help a New Jersey-focused cause. We haven't had a Rising show since 2018. Why this month WON'T be Fenway (Sept. 7 2003): Bruce just did the whole Fenway thing. "Frankie" is a big draw from the setlist, but that song was featured as part of the recent Gothenburg release. The Rising show problems.
  4. Found it! Tangled Up Puppet by Harry Chapin
  5. In the past six months or so, maybe more, a thread was created with songs about parents and kids, I think. I know for sure there was a song about a father/daughter relationship. It was a male singer, live, with either a guitar or piano accompaniment. I would search old topics but I can't even think of a"keyword" or two to narrow the search. I just remember a bittersweet vibe to the lyrics. Can anyone recall the song? Sorry that I don't have much to provide...
  6. Second Fenway Night 2003. Just the cure for an endless stretch of lonesome days.
  7. Same "last show" for me. I found magic in the night, however. First time for Independence Day. And I thought the post-River selection was strong. And if it's goodbye, that's all right. It would be a second goodbye of sorts, anyway. The first happened in 2008 at the same venue. Jungleland was played. And the image of Clarence finishing his solo as the spotlight went dark remains an indelible memory.
  8. Hope this is the right place to ask... When you get to the page on brucespringsteen.net where the dates of live shows available for purchase are listed down the right side, how do you use the up and down arrows that appear in the lower right hand corner? I can't scroll lower than 1981. And I've tried everything I can think of to make those arrows work. I'm using Google Chrome for browsing if that matters. Thanks.
  9. Yeah lots of carry over in the 75-85 and 75-88. Bottom line is, I'm betting more official releases come from the sources on these fabulous collections. Happy New Year!
  10. I used that title because that is the title of the bootleg. https://www.springsteenlyrics.com/bootlegs.php?item=4453 Call it whatever you like.
  11. The fabulous "Live 75-85 Outtakes" boot is getting picked over. Official releases have claimed a combined eight of the 20 tracks: Nassau Coliseum, NY 12/29/80 & Winterland, CA 12/16/78 What's left? Capitol Theater, NJ 09/21/78 is sure to come at some point and complete that trilogy. And of course there is ample high-quality material from Los Angeles Sports Coliseum, CA 09/30/85. The two that intrigue me are Brendan Byrne Arena, NJ 08/19/84 & Giants Stadium, NJ 08/22/85. Looking forward to what's to come...
  12. A MUST to download/purchase. BUT...I was comparing snippets just now of from the official site and the Winterland 25th anniversary remaster boot and I must say, the boot is louder and more ALIVE. I'll miss that aspect.
  13. Confusion point No. 1: If you go into the normal live.brucespringsteen.net link everything is still full price. Confusion point No. 2: I went through the 25-percent off link to the Nugs site. I was looking for 12-29-1980. But it was not listed among the 40-something shows to download. The good news: I found it in a search and downloaded it at the promotional price. But geez, how about making things a little more smooth? Then again, this is brought to you by the folks who STILL have the title "Bruce Homes Home" above the 9/19/78 essay. Yikes.
