Probably not for ages !

Where is @Jimmy James and @Brilliant Disguise - i reallu hope they love this and Mr  @Jertucky

Holy smoke, I've been awake for about 3 hours. Checked out a couple work site we have going and just made it to the office. I've heard this tune twice now. I need something harder. But it's a fine tune. 

Don't know if this has been said yet, as I'm not going to go through the 4 pages in two hours worth of posts. But on ESR, Bruce's statement says: "They recorded the whole album in 5 days, with the full band all in the studio at once. No over dubs.

There’s nothing quite like hearing new Bruce for the first time. No other artist will ever make me feel this way. Don’t ever stop Bruce. Music needs you. 

Bruce's recording and songwriting career has basically been his own life story. His songs and albums through the years have reflected the part of his life he was in both at that time and occasionally

I love it Jimmy

Its a ton more optimistic than WS

My heart sings listening to this, not breaks like listening to WS

That's what im thinking but it feels more inclusive

Indeed, and he has yet to do it with the ESB, which is an important part of his journey and his story. 
 

Im thinking in terms of the larger narrative of his work. If Magic opened with “Radio Nowhere” and he’s asking “is there anybody alive out there” or “does anyone still care about what I have to say,” it feels like this “Letter to Us” might be asking a different question: “how do I begin to say goodbye to my audience?” Not necessarily in the sense that he’s retiring necessarily, but he does turn 71 in a couple of weeks. WS was all about coming to terms with mortality, this might be a continuation of that exploration.

That's basically what we got via e-mail from Bruce himself. It sounds like a Neil Young recording approach. Or, put it in another way, The Seeger Sessions approach done with the E Street Band.

I don't think so much a goodbuy as almost a love letter to the ESB
