Just met Bruce outside Claridges got a photo and he signed my Born to Run vinyl. Absolutely made up!!! 

Here we go then ... Broadway was never an option for me.  Too far away, too expensive, wasn't able to take time off work, would've had to pay double for everything (I wouldn't have gone on my own

Having listened to the album over and over since it's release and watching the movie today, I can only add one thing.... Western Stars is the absolute heart of the album, and in the live performance it stands above all the other tracks in its magnificence.. 

This song should be considered in the pantheon...

I hear you on SOB being an odd one, but Backstreets posted the details/guidelines for the Q&A in London and it specifically makes mention of  a DVD so I am optimistic...

 

SOB was released via Netflix, I suppose, whereas the WS movie has so far had a limited release in some theaters.

I love it but, for me, that honour goes to Stones or MM.

Stones is like a cousin of Brilliant Disguise in terms of its honesty and sheer brilliance.

I am pretty certain now that from October 25th onwards, the new live Western Stars release will be playing on loop instead of the original studio album. 

I’ve played that to death and will always revisit it, but having seen the film I’m left in no doubt as to which versions of the songs I prefer and it’s not the studio album. 

This whole focus on the Western Stars record through the film, the live soundtrack and the studio album itself makes me feel that this simply has to be the greatest project of his life. Bar none.

Sorry if this has been asked elsewhere:

Anybody know if the limited blue vinyl of the live WS soundtrack will be available anywhere other than the official US store?

No idea.  That’s why I bought it from the official store.

i don't see anything on flicks nz yet

I'm starting to see it appear on some sites here with a December 4th release date.

Not on the big mega chain cinema sites, mind you, but the smaller more specialised ones.

In Adelaide, most convenient to me looks to be Palace Nova at Prospect which appears to be having two screenings only... 4th Dec 7 pm and one on Sunday arvo 8th Dec

I know I'm in the minority with my lack of love for this album,I happened to be wondering last night if there were any other songs that might have made the album,to hear he started with 40 & ended up with these 13 is something I might take a while to process.

Worst case scenario,there are 27 worse songs than Hitchhikin' out there somewhere,best case is that something might eventually surface from this like Down In The Hole from The Rising.

I mentioned the legendary Mike Saunders in my post up there ^^^.  He has written a really good report about Bruce's weekend in London etc on the front page of BTX.

(The name 'legendary' comes from @Promise61 - I'm not sure why, but I've always liked it :)).

He had that title long before I used it. There's even a FB page with that very title.

There are a few Lakers that know him a lot better than I do. Top bloke.

:)

:)  Yes, great bloke. I've known him well since the early 90's.  Mike visited me for a while and sorted out my Bruce tapes … many had no names or dates on them. I'd go off to do my night duty at the hospital and return to see all my stuff had been put in order. :D

He accompanied me to Achnacarry when I scattered my dad's ashes on the banks of Loch Lochy. We listened to Will T Massey there and back - he and that cd will always be held dear.

I should think that Southside and Bruce were also on the playlist - but WTM is the one I remember.
