Listened to the entire show doing yard work today.   Thoroughly enjoyed it.... for the cost of two of the 36 bags of mulch I put in today.   Every show they release is essentially a gift.   This was a great listen.

I don't subscribe to the "gotta have a live version of every song he's ever released".   

I attended multiple identical shows on this tour,  and enjoyed every one.   Because every one of them is different. 

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

I do not get it , why do we complain about these archive releases here so much. Is it because we are spoiled? We happy with what we get, it's always an upgrade from what we have, no matter what.

This tour has been a little bit more coordinated, as it had a story to tell. Therefore different from the other live shows. Hence why not every show was different from the previous one.

I still wish I could have seen one of these shows live.

hi Guys,

normally I do not post much here on SPL to say the least.

I have a question, hope for replies what you all think.

I am pretty glad with the released live shows, a pretty good mix in era's and shows I think.

But the thing to me is the sound. Mostly there is a good mix I think. But the drums ..... they seem so 'light' or 'thin' (don't know if that is a good word for this..) where the bassdrum to me should give a massive 'BOOOOOMM' in these mixes there is a poor 'boom' and the snare is merely a 'POK' in stead of a 'BAAM'...

and Garry's bass is also very 'thin'...

To me that is a shame, copld have been better.



but that's my opnion. What do you think?

🤔Not a lecture, just pontificating....


Without checking old ticket stubs, as I age and memory becomes less a file cabinet of detail and more a warehouse of Swiss cheese, I attended 7 shows on the U.S. leg of the Tunnel tour. - All 3 nights at Worcester, both Nassau Coliseum shows, and the last 2 nights in NYC.  

The shows were NOT the same as far as energy and performance goes.  Worcester night 1 was obviously spectacular as the premier night for the Tunnel compositions, as well as Roulette, Pt Man Pt Monkey, I’m A Coward, You Can Look (rockabilly) as well as the long Spare Parts story.
The staging was also excitingly new as it became obvious that the show was to become a bookended thematic performance. The next 2 nights were fascinating watching the band settling in and the various nuanced changes in the set as it gently morphed into its intended ‘routine’ presentation.  (Some other time, I can relate the tales of the circulating audience videos that were made through the stands.)
The last 2 nights in NYC had their own special energies.  By that point, with Boom Boom, Seeds, Vigilante Man,  Across The Border Line, Have Love, Will Travel, Crying, and Lonely Teardrops, as well as the realization that Rosalita was firmly NOT going to automatically be in the set nightly (GASP), the shows took on a completely different feel.  Best way I can describe is that in Worcester, Bruce’s shirt was fully buttoned as was his coat and tie tightly knotted neatly in place.  By NYC his coat was open, his tie unknotted and hanging on his shirt with the top three buttons undone.  His belt was also loosened a notch.
The 2 nights on Long Island?  I had incredible anticipation being in the ‘legendary’ hall where the ‘infamous’ (long cherished bootleg recordings) the 3 night December 1980 stand occurred.  I met a basket full of ‘infamous’ fans from across the country whose names I had read or heard about in Backstreets or chat groups.   The crowd in the arena for those two shows were loaded with relatives of Bruce.  I saw people with multiple huge laminated passes, most with photos that identified them like ‘Uncle Max’ or ‘Cousin Joe’.  What evenings these sets were going to be!!!
Well, guess what? Fucking train wrecks.  Fucking train wrecks.
I soon came to assume this was the time and place where his first marriage fell apart, or at least was revealed in front of his entire extended family.  Several New Yorker fans seated around me were screaming that the shows were INCREDIBLE!  Best ever!!  My friend and I were timing the shows and keeping set lists.  Bruce spoke at an absolute minimum between songs.  We kept looking at each other and saying “What’s going on?  Does he have to catch a fucking bus?”  The first night clocked in a full 15 minutes faster than the shortest Worcester show.   I believe Bruce beat that record by an additional five on night 2, something I thought was impossible to do.  Compared to Worcester, they both felt like “Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band In Two Nights Of Intentionally Rushed Obligatory Performances”.  “Get your programs! Get your popcorn! Get the early train back to the city”.  Of the 45 plus shows I saw through the mid 2000s, both those nights stand out as by far the most disappointing.  
So what’s the point?  Every night, every stand, every run, every tour IS different.  Even the bad can get worse!  Even the great can get greater. Even the common or repetitive can be the best truck stop dinner you ever ate at a diner. Also, we are incredibly spoiled as fans.  We sulk over ‘B’ performances, like ‘we was robbed!!’  We demand perfection.  We complain when those humorless Norwegians get two acoustic numbers that should have been performed for the more deserving Philly loyalists.....
The identical set performed a second night is not the same concert.  And yes, fans ARE whiny.  I whine plenty about the shows I want to hear from tours I want to see better represented.  But I appreciate everything archival recording he issues because  I lived through the era when to find a homemade bootleg tape of a Springsteen show, you had to scan magazines or fanzines for ads, pick a date and literally send $3 per cassette plus postage to ‘Post Office Box X’, New York, New York, and you got back unbranded tapes that made 5th generation Dolby-less Maxell D90’s sound like 3/4” masters.  Imagine “Hungry Heart” from a 7” 45 played at 33-1/3, with loud hiss.   ARGH !!!
Me?  I want shows from 1973, 1974, early 1975, 1976 and 1977.   But I understand that Bruce and Nugs have to make money.  It’s not a charity give-a-way (though it really is when quality MP3s are offered for download for $7.50 on sale).  Sure, I had ‘wholesale’ connections where I often got triple Crystal Cats for ‘only’ $30-$40.  I also remember paying $75 each for a show.   Most fans, especially younger Europeans, want copies of shows they went to, could have gone to, or would have gone to had they been of age.  That means primarily from The River onwards, and more specifically from BITUSA up, and definitely from the Reunion tour up.  (London ‘75 dates are adjuncts because they are notorious and legendary, plus the rare few shows that early fanatical U.S. fans couldn’t get to see.)  Bruce DOES function under the horrid concept of ‘I’d like to make money off of my job’.  You issue what you hope and think will sell.  To the aging pre-BITUSA fans, it’s hard to imagine that a slow E Street Shuffle or another recording of Pretty Flamingo might not top most people’s want lists.
So, ya, I whine, but I also say thank you, thank you, thank you.  
Ever try taping a show?  I did several times.  It’s a blast having to be silent as a church mouse, always checking batteries, levels, looking for security, watching how much tape you have left cause you don’t want to have to flip in the middle because he suddenly decided to play Incident, trying not to move so you don’t yank out a wire or have to keep moving a mic because the girl behind you on the left is singing along to every song she knows loud and off-key or the guy in front of you won’t stop whistling, while the people on your right have walked in front of you 11 times to pee, get food and beer.  And forget about your peeing for 3-1/2 hours unless you wore a pair of diapers.  
Thank you Bruce.  Thank you, thank you, thank you.  
Um, uh, some of those Rumson school benefit shows would be nice, and the smaller Christmas Shows too, if you are reading this .....  😇
