Further on up the road. Amazing. Take a pretty standard Bruce song - which I guess by other's standards is pretty high standard -  re-arrange it and transform it into an event in itself. Only Bruce can do this. What a man - 57 and as creative as ever

great show, but disappointed that he didnt include The Ghost Of Tom Joad and the remarkable Shenandoah on the disc

Never done as a Studio version. Originally released on the B side of Cover me.
Believe there's a studio version by Tom Waites who wrote the song though.

Bruce trivia question:

For which band did he wrote his first top ten hit?  (After being convinced by his manager he decided to keep it himself.)

He may have changed the odd lyric on that but not the one I'm on about.

Just watching the AI version of Chimes of Freedom- the one with Gabriel, Sting, Yossou N'Dour and Tracy Chapman- and I was wondering whether it was the right time to revive the sleeveless leather vest look.

Come on, it's a great look. Overdue for revival. You with me?  ;D

According to one of the comments on YT, it's September 6th in 1988 in Budapest.

The Boss is a trend setter not a follower. So put your money in leather vest cause I predict a high demand no matter how gay it looks.

New Album released on the 2nd October 2007 called Magic
'Magic' is the first new studio album by Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band since 2002's GRAMMY Award-winning, multi-platinum, number one album 'The Rising' (Columbia Records), which was also produced by O'Brien.

Bruce Springsteen's longtime manager Jon Landau said, "'Magic' is a high energy rock CD. Itís light on its feet, incredibly well played by Bruce and the members of the E Street Band, and, as always, has plenty to say. Itís also immensely entertaining. 'Magic' is the third collaboration between Bruce and Brendan O'Brien and is a culmination of their very productive creative relationship."

Magic' Song Titles:

1. Radio Nowhere

2. You'll Be Comin' Down

3. Livin' in the Future

4. Your Own Worst Enemy

5. Gypsy Biker

6. Girls in Their Summer Clothes

7. I'll Work for Your Love

8. Magic

9. Last to Die

10. Long Walk Home

11. Devil's Arcade

The problem with Bruce is that once you've caught him live, he tends to spoil it for any other artist you go to see. I find myself measuring others against the sheer dynamic and exuberance of his and inevitably they fall short. He wrings every last drop of music energy from you.

My worst experience of this was Seeing Bruce at Maine Road I think on Friday night and Macca at the Kings Dock on the Sunday. Try as I might to connect with Macca's efforts it felt a bit flat. Bruce was to blame. Never forgave him til his next show!

I'm 34 and was tought to love The Boss by a childhood friend at the tender age of 10, just before Born in the USA was released. My first show was in 1988 and he played for 4 hours straight!!! He only took 10 mins in the middle to get a drink of water and a dry shirt then it was on stage again! I've seen him several times since then and he has never disappointed me!! I really look forward to MAGIC... :D
