  1. Exactly the same for me. My finger hovered over 'buy' for a while but I resisted. I see its no longer available now. Had I not got those two, I would have jumped in.
  2. Rattle & Hum is often mocked but there is an incredible album of songs in there. Heartland, Hawkmoon 269, Love Rescue Me, Angel of Harlem, All I want is You, God Part II, Desire. Had they instead worked that out to a standalone full new album, instead of including what were pretty pointless live songs and self indulgence then it would have been huge. They could have released Rattle and Hum as a standalone documentary/live album. Discounting those pants, Bad on Rattle and Hum is simply magnificent. Man, could he sing back then:
  3. I'm excited too. Finally we have a challenger for Born To Walk in the "GLOAAOTPATCYHA" awards. He has turned this into a one horse race for way too long. .
  4. The LP set has dropped below £70 on amazon UK, for anyone seeking a bargain : https://www.amazon.co.uk/Album-Collection-Vol-1987-1996-VINYL/dp/B07BLJDYVK
  5. This is just bizarre. Imagine Bruce kicking off The River tour once again. By all accounts, even the band were a bit bored with these songs towards the end last time out.
  6. RIP This is probably my favourite ever cover version, by anyone:
  7. To go with their Manchester gig in July, I grabbed a ticket for their Leeds gig in December yesterday. I actually really dislike the arena there but it's the only one I can do due to work. Not managed to hear the new one yet, but the reviews sound incredible. Plannig to sit down this evening and give it the attention it deserves. Their best for me are Trouble Will Find Me and High Violet.
  8. I never 'got' The Hold Steady as I always found them a bit hard work or I guess you could call it abrasive. This new solo album however is awesome. My album of the year so far.
  9. 100% agree!! If you look up best ever Glastonbury performances on line and Springsteen never features, which shows a definite missed opportunity As U2 did perfectly a year or so later, Glastonbury was a perfect opportunity to smash it by playing hit, after hit after hit. But he chose Seeds, Outlaw Pete and Hard Times Come Again No More. Instead of a walking on with an acoustic guitar to play a Joe Strummer song that nobody knew, imagine the impact had he done this:
  10. For the first time, I made a big effort and waiting in line from stupid o'clock. Despite the crazy cold temperatures and encounters with confused and pissed late night / early morning party kids, I really enjoyed the social aspects of chatting with the other lunatics in line. I bought Jeff Tweedy, The Charlatans, Bob Dylan and Teenage Fanclub. I baulked at the cost of Bingo Hand Job. I regret that a little now.
  11. Bob Seger was absent but he signed up in 2017: https://www.rollingstone.com/music/music-news/bob-segers-music-finally-lands-on-streaming-services-201965/ Peter Gabriel was another who held back but he is now there also. I think Taylor Swift and Garth Brooks might now be the only major artists not on there.
  12. I would assume they are all here https://www.youtube.com/user/BruceSpringsteenVEVO/videos
