New Archive

Backstreets Magazine reported via Facebook:

 

Breaking - 1977 Coming this Friday, August 4, the Bruce Springsteen archive will release official recordings made in Albany (February 7) and Rochester (February 8). Details forthcoming

Original Post

Brad Serling talked about this release and future ones on E Street Nation.

Haven't heard the interview myself but according to various sources here are some statements from him.

This release contains 45min from Albany and two hours from Rochester sourced from mono cassettes recorded from soundboard. It'll be released as one set. It seems that's all they have from these shows.  Five shows from '77 were chosen to be worked on. Albany and Rochester are the first two of this batch. No word which are the other three.

They have 25 shows approved spanning all eras and will release a new show monthly at the first Friday. Also two shows per month are possible.

SOMETHING IN THE NIGHT
Official 1977 archive release coming Friday, August 4
In a surprise announcement on E Street Radio, fans learned that music from the 1977 tour would comprise the next download from the Bruce Springsteen live archive. Combining music from two New York concerts, Albany (February 7) and Rochester (February 8), the upcoming installment presents unheard music: no Albany recording has ever surfaced, and no 1977 performance has ever circulated from a soundboard source.

Speaking with host Jim Rotolo, Nugs.net's Brad Serling said that the 1977 tapes were part of a larger cache of tapes made by Chas Gerber, Springsteen's sound engineer from the middle of 1975 through the spring of 1977. These recordings, made for reference on the fly, are typically in mono and often incomplete: that's the case with Albany (of which about 45 minutes will appear). Rochester, also in mono, runs about two hours and is complete save for a couple of tape flips (post-production magic should make these less noticeable).

Without question, Gerber's tapes are of enormous historical significance, representing an era that fans consider one of Springsteen's most deserving of greater attention. And Friday's release calls on two of the five from 1977 that Serling said he had auditioned, so another release from ’77 isn’t out of the question.

Serling talked at length about the archive program, stating that the release schedule will now target the first Friday of each month for a new concert. Right now, 25 shows have been identified and approved, covering most eras of Springsteen's career. Not every era exists in the archive; the Gerber tapes, however, greatly expand what's available.

Before today, even the existence of an official 1977 recording was an uncertainty. But this release makes more than good on Serling's hint last month that the archive program would soon take a "deep dive." For many fans, '77 is just that.

Am i the only one thinking that these tapes are the same kind of "official audience" recordings that JEMS has shared with us as part of the "Nothing to loose - The 1977 tour revisited" series?
Hopefully i'm wrong, but i think we won't get soundboard tapes of the 1977 gigs but rather "official audience" recordings of the same kind as Richfield, Milwaukee, St.Louis and Towson.

My guess would be that he is the one responsible for the "official" audience recordings. So be it. What is in the vaults is what they have. I'll take multi tracks from the Darkness and River tours next for five hundred Alex.

Are you retarded? Hell yeah it was better in '78!

Although I thought the same thing when I first heard the news, the answer is a resounding No. if you double check what was said, these are sbd recordings but in Mono not Stereo and recorded on the fly.  They are different tapes then the official aud recordings. This fellow had the same job as Coop during that time period. Unfortunately, he didn't have the technology Coop has now.

Not as good in quality as the tapes we've been getting but  a heck of a lot better than what we've got.

Just downloaded it. Listening to Something In the Night from Albany and am sitting here literally with my jaw dropped. Never heard a note of this and I collected heavily during the 70s and 80s. BRAVO Bruce.

hmm, maybe cuz there was never a bootleg of it,  that is if you're listening to Albany.  

It was one of those shows that no one ever heard before.
