  1. Oops, forgot these: 12/15/78 Winterland (Prodigal Son) As Dreams Don't Mean Nothing -- 8/20/81 And more on the Oakland show (The New Sound of ’84: Oakland First Night): This is a fantastic release and to my ears has the absolute PERFECT amount of audience mixed in -- listen up, NUGS. This baby features kick-ass sound with nice instrument separation. There's so much to be said for that "big arena" sound (as someone else called it a while back when I was trying to describe what was so great about the As Dreams Don't Mean Nothing version of the 8/20/81 Vets show), and this release has it in spades. There's a stillness to the portions between the music, you can hear the whistles and crowd reactions but it's not in your face and there's zero tape hiss. You know, kinda like being there. Among many highlights is the five song NEBRASKA run, a nice solo from Danny during "Prove It", and beautiful versions of "Point Blank" and "Follow that Dream". Not to mention one of the best performances of "Racing" caught on tape from the 84/85 Tour. Sublime. And a Twilight Zone story during the intro to "Glory Days", to boot! I could go on and on but I think I'll go listen to the show again instead. If you don't have this, download it ASAP. "In the mid-’90s, Crystal Cat released Oakland Night, a 3-CD set recorded on October 21, 1984. Though it sounded quite good, its true sonics fell victim to excessive — and some might say foolhardy — tinkering. Now, to celebrate the concert’s 35th anniversary, a newly-remastered version appears as The New Sound of ’84: Oakland First Night. It’s a significant upgrade, earning a place as one of that year’s better audience recordings. Gathering and ordering the elements was a team effort, and I could not be happier with the result. Full audio restoration was the primary goal; many years ago, JEMS Archive had made an analog master clone DAT directly from the master cassette tapes, which helped immeasurably. New primary materials include photos taken that night, and an explanatory essay (a tip of my A’s hat to That Old ’80 Sound, which shares much in common). And what a gig: 32 songs over three-and-a-half hours, ranging from a thematic one-two at the outset to that year’s new arrangements for “Point Blank” and “Follow That Dream,” and a terrific “Racing in the Street.” October 21 marked the first time Springsteen played five straight selections from Nebraska — songs from that LP lent real gravitas to the shows that autumn, and that stretch here sounds amazing. Headphones, please! And for those keeping score: we’ve now identified five recorders for this performance (any guess which date has the most known recordings?). In addition to this one, another excellent source (Recorder 4, BW Master) joins the line-up, appearing as a torrent for the very first time. We used it to patch a half-dozen spots (rather seamlessly, thanks to the steady work in post of mjk5510). Both filesets feature the complete performance. Thanks to everyone who helped! - slipkid68"

  5. No outer sleeves on those records, or did you take them off for the photos?

  7. It's drugs. Bruce confirmed this in an interview with Jon Pareles of the New York Times sometime around the record's release. JP asked him directly if the white lines were referring to coke and Bruce replied "yep" or "that's correct", but I'm pretty sure it was the latter. This was an audio interview so it may be out there somewhere... BTW, this has always been one of my favorites from MAGIC. The sound of Max's hi-hat feels like riding a wave.
  8. I was lucky enough to see an emotional version of "Shut Out the Light" at this gig, the second of two back-to-back shows in Indy. Bruce was on the side of the stage, noodling around on the acoustic getting the chords right and I recognized the notes; I had purchased the "Born in the U.S.A." 45 the previous month and loved this unreleased B-Side. Still the greatest show I've ever seen, by anyone. And easily the best $100 (4th row!) I've ever spent in my life. Indianapolis - Market Square Arena – January 8th, 1985 BORN IN THE U.S.A. / PROVE IT ALL NIGHT / DARLINGTON COUNTY / JOHNNY 99 / DARKNESS ON THE EDGE OF TOWN / REASON TO BELIEVE / SHUT OUT THE LIGHT / JOHNNY BYE-BYE / OUT IN THE STREET / GLORY DAYS / THE PROMISED LAND / MY HOMETOWN / BADLANDS / THUNDER ROAD / COVER ME / DANCING IN THE DARK / HUNGRY HEART / CADILLAC RANCH / CAN'T HELP FALLING IN LOVE / I'M ON FIRE / GROWIN' UP / BOBBY JEAN / RACING IN THE STREET / BORN TO RUN / DETROIT MEDLEY / TWIST AND SHOUT - DO YOU LOVE ME / SANTA CLAUS IS COMING TO TOWN U.S. debut of "Can't Help Falling In Love", last played in London on June 5th, 1981 And it IS NOT "Lights".
  9. Post your addy, Roy, this here is one Springsteen Fan that doesn't want to be out of compliance. Once I have your address I'll PM you my Paypal e-mail so you can deposit the 1000 USD required to ship via my custom made Springsteen poster vault mailer. BTW, I used to have the double-sided poster too but got rid of that a long time ago in one of my yearly inventory reductions.
  10. I was led to a couple others: https://www.popsike.com/BRUCE-SPRINGSTEEN-ORIGINAL-PROMOTIONAL-POSTER-NEBRASKA/332325359718.html https://www.popsike.com/Bruce-Springsteen-Original-Promo-Poster-for-Nebraska-Album-1982/322966620960.html

  12. Thanks, Peter! I've had it rolled up in a tube but plan to have it framed sometime in the not too distant future.
  13. I went ahead and posted it over there too, thanks for the tip!
  14. I bought this from an ad in Goldmine magazine back in the early-to-mid 90s and was wondering if anyone has any details about it they could provide? The only other copy I've seen was in an expired eBay ad I came across ages ago after Googling the poster while looking for background info. I did get a response last night on BTX which indicated, based on the catalog number, that it may be a European promotional item. I'm not looking to sell it, though I am curious about it's potential value, I really just want to know if anyone has seen one of these over the years or maybe even has it in their own collection. The grey is one solid shade, the glare makes it seem otherwise:
  15. I hadn't looked at this for a while so my description was a little off. Here it is (the grey is one solid shade, the glare makes it seem otherwise):
