i took about a year off from his music, but i just had a smoke and stomped around my back porch to Badlands from the London release that came out not too long ago. i think it's time to dive in again.

The Hammersmith Odeon concert is one of my favorite live albums ever. Incredible.

Agreed on Hammersmith, just a juggernaut of a show. Can't believe he doesn't release a show a year on CD.

His live output overall irritates me. Incomplete shows (NY), shows on DVD without the audio companion (Barcelona, London, Houston), compilations (Live 75-85), shows without E Street (In Concert) but only one true E Street, full band, full show, release. And it's AWESOME.

Seriously, one? I have every relesed DMB show, Bruce may be the only other artist out there where I would happily purchase 50+ shows at $20 each, and the fucker won't release them.

This vexes me.

agreed on this whole thing. especially once a tour gets rolling, the sets really start to get interesting from night to night.

Spirit In The Night from that Hammersmith show is otherworldly.

For real, it's out of control. I also am obsessed with Lost In The Flood from that release. Just ridiculous passion, intensity, and emotion in that performance.

Guy's done a great job encapsulating Americana into good old fashioned rock and roll.

to this thread.

Bruce was my first musical love. When The River album came out in 1980 I was 11 years old, and Hungry Heart got me into it, but then I started listening to the album and all his other albums and was hooked.

Then I started smoking a lot of weed in the mid-80's and got way into the Dead. But, like I said, Bruce was "my first".

Further to my own point, the goddamn Sirius channel plays a new live E Street show every day, so you know they have hundreds (thousands?) of them recorded and releasable.

They sound like shit on the radio though. Master that shit and take my money, please!

i'm tempted to get Sirius just for that station.

what are people's favorite bootlegs? that's one big area i'm not nearly familiar enough with, because i know there's some great 70's/early 80's SBD's.

the Live 1975-1985 version of The River with the story about being rejected from going into the army and his father's reaction is some powerful shit

i have, i like it, though a little overproduced in the middle section with some weird choices. mainly the repeating of "everything dies that's a fact" over and over.
