  1. Am I the only one who needs to be in totally the right head space to listen to these acoustic downloads. I went to both the Joad & Devils tours and love acoustic Springsteen but this is different. As an emphatic person I get dragged into the songs and this can pull down my mood. I’ve just been out walking and skipped through quite a lot of this download as it made me ‘feel down’ for the want of a better expression. I slapped on some Beastie Boys to liven up my walk. Ha Ha
  2. Yes. I’m a definite. How do you want to arrange this? I love the support band
  3. Your first point Daisy I wanted to keep away from the whole Apple debate. I only mentioned it as that’s the format I use and this ‘spatial audio’ is available with them. It’s purely the sound of those Beatle albums which was stunning. It’s like you’re the centre of attention and the band is playing around you. I’d love to hear Jungleland like that #swoon #SaxSolo The cutie is my youngest daughter who is now 8 but still cute and adorable. Thank you for your kind words.
  4. Have been listening to some of the Beatles and Marvin Gaye on the new Apples Spatial Audio and it sounds amazing. It’s the equivalent of watching HDTV for the first time but for your ears. (For me anyway). Anyone know if any Bruce material is coming? The Wild, the Innocent & The E Street Shuffle would sound amazing in this format. TBF a lot of Bruce’s back catalogue would. What would you like to hear most in this new format? More reading on it here.. https://www.nytimes.com/wirecutter/blog/apple-music-spatial-audio-review/
  5. Second time City have won the league at Old Trafford in the last few seasons. Niiiiiice
  6. Cheers and a Happy Paddies day to you. Rewatching Rescue Me TV series at the moment and wondered why 2nd, 3rd even 4th generation Irish, Italians etc.... refer to themselves as ‘Irish American’ etc... Like Springsteen is Dutch, Italian, Irish.. why is this so??
  7. Love acoustic Bruce but also love the BIG drum sound on this version
  8. I’ll strongly disagree. The team play, the deft touch by Sterling, the first touch by Mr Whippy and quick finish was superb
  9. United were 8 points clear with 6 games left in 2012 and we all know how that finished...... Aguroooooooooooooooooo
  10. Downloaded in HD Flac and had a long car journey. Some great tunes and great quality. Highlights for me were GOTJ, Atlantic City, It’s hard to be a saint was awesome, Brothers Under the Bridge (probably by favourite Springsteen song of the last 30 years) but it sounded a bit polished on here for me, Two hearts (I think this could be my favourite version of the song). Bruce spoke quite a bit of French so would love a translation. As soon as THAT harmonica kicked in at the start of GOTJ I was picKed up, lifted and transported back some 25 years straight to Brixton academy the hairs on the back of my neck stood on end. Beautiful. As a side story I remember back in the day going on holiday in Greece and a bar owners party trick was putting on GOTJ and a pack of stray dogs use to howl like mad to the first 30 secs. Still makes me tickle ha ha
  11. How was that penalty not given? The Pep machine seems to be finding its rhythm. To think Aguero & KDB have to come back in yet. Happy days
  12. TBF Bruce always comments on how it’s pissing down in Manchester every time he plays. No sunglasses needed those days.
  13. There’s a lot of archived material in there. I wonder if the best of it will see the ‘light of day’?
  14. Underwhelmed is an understatement. i feel like I’ve been teased & teased and then had a figurative door shoved in my face. Roll on the next delay
  15. https://www.app.com/story/entertainment/music/2020/06/28/bruce-springsteen-archives-present-soundstage-david-sancious-bob-santelli/3274371001/This I hope this is not what we’re getting?
  16. You can end the thread with that first post for me ha ha
  17. I’m not sure what you’re saying here but so what? Murder by bullet of by chocking is Murder
  18. The stadium is a shit hole. I was there for a Champions League game before Christmas. The facilities were woefully inadequate and don’t get me started on the police. Milan however was gorgeous with mental drivers
  19. So where are ya from DoesTheBusStop? You can’t be from the middle of a stadium. Ha ha Saw The Rolling Stones at OT last year and they were superb but not as good as Springsteen at either Old Trafford.
  20. I’ve just downloaded both concerts in FLAC-HD and they’ve a combined size of 14.9 GB’s. Getting excited to blast that in the car. Have a long car journey on New Years Day so will do a 2 concert run through that day
  21. The whole thing was delayed because Nugs was doing a 25% off all shows in my opinion. ‘Now I ply my trade in the land of king dollar’
