Darkness boxset announced


Recommended Posts

Eight of the finest performances from Bruce Springsteen's 1978 tour are now available in a limited, collectible box set. This 24-CD set contains all five of the legendary radio broadcasts on the Darkness tour: The Roxy in LA , The Agora in Cleveland, The Capitol Theatre in Passaic, NJ, Fox Theatre in Atlanta and Winterland in San Francisco. Rounding out the collection are the second shows in Passaic and San Francisco, plus the December 8 show in Houston, Texas. A limited number of empty boxes are also available to hold previously purchased CDs.

That must be them done with 78 from the archive. Hefty price 

I am still hoping for the 3rd Capitol show and if you look good it says volume 1. So we can probably expect more 78 shows

Unless they have put a bit more effort into the physical CD package then I can’t see me spending that much on this, sadly. 

The volume 1 thing is really interesting, though - surely there’s not another 8 releases from 1978 just waiting there?

Well I have the 1973-85 cd box which says volume 1 but a volume 2 has never been spoken about 

It has been more than spoken about - but only in Japan!!

I know I’m in the deep minority here but I don’t particularly like to listen to the live stuff. Seeing him live is a whole different experience but listening, I’d much rather hear the studio stuff.

I'm kind of the same, or I do (really) enjoy listening to live stuff when I hear it, but I usually don't feel the need to seek it out myself except for trivia purposes. I do enjoy watching live clips though, but yeah, I rarely if ever listen to full shows.
