    What are we wanting/expecting on Friday then?

    Even though the Archive Series doesn't always fit social matters, and a lot of us interperate releases and songs to fit the mood, a week or so ago I was thinking Seeger would be great as we needed some determination to get through the Corona struggles. 
    As everything appeared to be on it's way back to normality (And because it's sunny as out) though I started anticipating a BITUSA show. Even if it's too soon for another biggie after NJ '81, something with a summer atmosphere would be sound.

    Now it feels like something joyous would end up being looked at inappropriate - though it could obviously also be viewed as the opposite - and we're back wanting something from 2006, 2007-08, or if possible 2002-03 to remind us that the world can overcome and that we're capable of getting our shit together, together

    Hell, even if we get something from 2005, maybe it's time for this song to make its Archive Series debut


    I have ben pondering this as well...

    I still predict, the proceeds will go to the Jersey Pandemic fund. So, given that I predict a big one from '84/85 or '75. It will create a buzz and cause many more people to purchase. There will be articles in Rolling Stone talking about the show and that it benefits the relief eforts for the pandemic.

    I could be wrong. I'd love another '07/08 show. I played Boston '07 the other day and was thrilled by it. Would also love a '05 show as well...but assume that it wont get many downloads.

    Either way, I look forward to this as much as anything.

    Put the album on last night whilst washing the dishes. Stayed in the kitchen to the last notes, long past I had finished. As I get older (currently 55) I think this will be the album I return to most. It's tone and sentiments seem to match those feelings of getting older perfectly. A beautiful album and in these uncertain times one to cherish!




    This, yes. Thank you for your words. Please keep posting too.

    Let's try these 6 instead.

    1. Born to Run

    2. Working on the Highway

    3. County Fair

    4. My Hometown

    5. Land of Hope and Dreams 

    6. All or Nothing at All 

    Very good my Brother!! I'd say its all heartland stuff in a way. He's a quintesential American, born amidst the baby boom post WW2. 

    I am currently playing Boston 2007, and the whole thing is spot on.

    Every song he's written is a classic american heartland piece.

    A forgetful expert if anything. Here's the obvious #11 that I had a tab open for but accidentally closed and forgot about.


    Paolo is the greatest. I needed this and the rest of his list.

    A devestating sampling of this man's music. Our country is vast and lost these days. I am moved to tears by the news everyday, as each day melts into the next. This music gives me hope.

    Apple Music, the artist formerly known as iTunes, is what I've been using since I first got an iPod in 2008. I'm no longer using an Apple device when I'm out and about, but it's just as straightforward to use regardless once you've added your music - bootlegs et all - to your library and downloaded it to your iCloud.

    Don't be alarmed though that if once you've got the Archive releases on your device they appear with Springsteen's studio album artwork and information - the Live Downloads just aren't recognised on the system. You're not being MOCKED by Apple. 

    I have a few of Springsteen shows stored away somewhere in FLAC, but seeing as Apple Music/iTunes only recognises mp3, that's format is essentially all I've ever known. It sounds great to me and I've never noticed a massive difference between the two.

    I'll follow suit after Buddhabone and post this, just 'cause.


    Turn off iTunes match or whatever they call it.

    I hope we get this show soon. 

    I agree.

    This song has always been a favorite for me. Its a toss up as to which released version is the best...

    To me it represents so much, hope for a future, loss for what is lost and will never return. Mourning the state of the world how even though our best efforts fail. We are here and we endure.

  7. There is never a bad version of Racing...

    I have been playing 80/81 versions lately and I prefer the 81 versions, spcifically 7/9/81. His voice and the band create magic.

    Then I also love the Darkness at the paramount version, and Hyde park always gets me.

    The one from Adelaide in '17 is amazing as well.

    well i guess its  poetic licence


    there is no such thing as fuelie heads on a big block 

    he needs a smaller engine for that  - but small engines are not sexy 


    i got a 69 chevy with a 327 :lol:


    the hurst as aftermarket maybe 

    Wow. Wow. Yes.

    You get it. Its all part of the story. He is alice lost in wonderland under the hood. Its there to paint a picture. a 396 or 327 it doesnt matter. What matters is how it sounds, it makes sense as poetry or words that paint a picture. I always see that bad ass car and the dude from L.A. with that 70's moustache. The girl in one of those yellow t shirts and those bell bottom jeans. How our hero steals her. Then how later she is lost as he runs away to run another race. The empty pleasure in the meaningless win....

    I also love the soul fairy band. Playing those drunk lust filled chords as they play by the lake in drunken drug addled fun. The band plays on and on, on a hot summer night before the various plagues have had thier way with us. We are them, and then they become us. Transformed by the times, and the ties that bind. The speed ball flying past us as we age. The point I am making is that it is all part of the fabric of the guys music. It is the most wonderful language I have heard.
