    Yeah that’s what I was referring to.  The homemade versions of this show have an odd sound, as the sound mix is different in the DVD audio track compared to the remaining songs currently available on the separate official download.

    The version I made sounds balanced to me. Let me know what sounds off to you please.

  2. The news of the reprised Broadway run puts the delay in a new light. I know we will get a new archive relatively soon. It just bothers me to want it as bad as I do. As we make it through the week, it seems less and less likely for it to drop this week. Just my opinion and I'd love to wrong.

  3. When actual tape is involved they need to send it to Maine and run it through the process, which involves baking and then doing a transfer and work on the digital file afterward. Then back to New York for mixing. Then they master and then deliver to nugs.

    At some point Bruce needs to approve.

    All of this takes time when tape is involved.

    well they already told me "that wasn't a hint"


    I haven't posted in a long time here...but the rule is, nobody knows until it's deliverd to nugs for release. So, to answer it that way is a rule. That being said, people have told me that 6/4/81 is in the pipeline.

    So is a 1/4 of The River Album or 1/4 of Born in the USA, Tracks before Tracks 1? :P


    In a way yes. There are albums that all came out at once and then albums he labored over to a huge extent. Both of those finished projects could have been 3 or 4 different records. I read a book by Clinton Heylin who goes into incredible detail. It's fascinating. Over time, all of these wonderful outtakes have come to light through deluxe sets and tracks, not to mention the Greatest hits record in 95 or Essential in 2003. I love all this shit at the end of the day.

    These songs.... they often leave me wondering about how much of the content is autobiographical...

    I think all of it is autobiographical, while at the same time being a complete fabrication. There is truth, deep truth in fiction. What isn't a fabrication is the lonlieness at the heart of all the behavior, The people in the songs act out in violent ways to express the lonlieness and isolation at the heart of it. The song that comes to mind to me is "Nebraska". I love his introduction of it in Kansas City in 1984. How isolation can lead to explosions of violence. I myself have always related my own issues to this music. I have a memory of the great Woody Allen film where it is said that art creates a working through process for the viewer or listener.

    In the end what is real or imagined isnt the point. the point is what we feel, more importantly, its what the writer felt that lead him to that moment of creation.
