Paolo's Circus Story

Random Thoughts + Discussion: Springsteen edition

Unsatisfied Heart is also very surreal. I find it interesting that only the speaker has a name. The town, the wife, the kids, the stranger, the sin - they all go unnamed. That's very unusual in Bruce's work.

The Carousel show might have started uploading to YT, not available from my location, but possibly for other people (maybe NZ and Australia).

Jersey. It was uploaded in 2011, but the new upload date of 12/5/19 (today) is curious

So a week ago today, I happened to win an entire collection of 44 7” Bruce Springsteen records on eBay! I could’ve cried with happiness as I’ve been trying my hardest to collect the last couple of years. They finally arrived on Tuesday and oh my god!!! I would usually post this in Record Machine but I just need everyone to see how pretty they are! Now I just have to try and get the photos to work.. 

F2B61824-817E-457A-B3CF-165677EB62A2.thumb.jpeg.f9c6c56f68417e84258e746f18392d99.jpeg57993892-5335-46BF-8797-4A11878B1754.thumb.jpeg.9bb50f729dde5876a86ca137a0294042.jpeg51D3F4DA-492B-4D38-A774-E41C6B0E2F7B.thumb.jpeg.5751100e1f7f7927754dbb7cbd81d14b.jpeg82155588-F343-4118-BECC-89E21E343669.thumb.jpeg.1e5e6c8f741bc20beb88dd8fcf09d308.jpeg

These are some of my favourites... the collection includes Spanish, French, Italian, Japanese, US and European/UK versions! There are a couple of Bootlegs too (including Birmingham, UK 1981), and a set of picture disc records of interviews. 

There’s so many more, including a few cool ones like ones that include a tour patch and posters etc. There’s also a few I have, but that’s maybe only like 3/4. 

They’ve made me so happy and I can’t wait to listen to them all and cherish them forever and ever! 

It did take me about an hour to update my Discogs though..

I would’ve been so sad if it’d gone to someone who didn’t care about Bruce and just wanted to sell them on individually at crazy prices so I tried my hardest to make sure I won them so I could appreciate them properly. I won the bidding with only seconds to go!! 

thank you :)

Random thoughts, Springsteen discussion?

 

I think $36 is ridiculous and unfair to charge, by Bruce and Landau, for the Western Stars Blu-ray coming out on the 19th.

That's WAY too high of a list price.

Don't be surprised if they raise the price for the next archive releases, if they're doing this greedy deal.

It should be a $20 list or so.

$36 is just not right.

(as for the response of "You don't have to buy it!" - I know; I ain't doing to now. I planned on it before.)

Reading now in a Dutch music magazine a review of Western Stars-Songs From The Film (The live album) which mentions the song 'Born On The Run' (sic). And I think the writer in fact means Born In The U.S.A. (the song).

What shall we do with this man?

BTW it is a very negative review.

Wow that is a RIDICULOUS price. I'm sure it will drop sooner or later. I've never heard of a new Blu-Ray release costing that much.

Well it was only January 2nd when I got my first speeding ticket of the new year last night on the way home from work. 

I blame it totally on Prove It All Night 9/20/78 Passaic. I even told that to the officer, hoping for a Springsteen fan, to let me off.  Nope
