I remember getting the River box, the first day on Blu-ray....I had to have it. I loved the River album as it moved me as a small kid around 10, and as I've grown and learned a lot about myself as the album's deeper meanings moved me even more. It's massive to start with, then you add the colors of all those outtakes, it just gets deeper and wider. The fucking River.
In December, the tour went on sale. The whole album. I had to go. Had to. You know time is finite and they are closing the Sports Arena. The dump that jumps. I pulled a great seat for St.Patricks day. Life is different now, older, poorer. The one would be enough, although that changed when the 19th became available....It was all magic, the entire thing.
