Notes: This is Loudpuppy's master, converted to two DVDs by me on July 29, 2005; this was when I was still making snazzy menus
and title cards. Bruce gives a great show here as a solo performer and the intensity of the performance is captured here some
pretty terrific camera work (the audio's pretty good, too) - noting that Loudpuppy was actually at the show with his mother and
was eyeballing the whole thing through his side door on the video camera! It gets better as it goes and you really feel like
you're there - nice job,Loudpuppy and nice job, Boss!

NEW: Springsteen live in New York 1988 - 3DVD - May 22

Bruce Springsteen
Madison Square Garden, NYC
Night 4 of 5
May 22, 1988
CBG Classic Master Video Series Vol. 48

video: (CBG) Ricoh R-600 (same spec as Sony CCD-V5) 8mm camcorder (w/ 2X teleconverter lens) master 8mm analog tape; NTSC, 4:3 PAR, 29.97 fps; transferred to harddrive via a firewire using a Sony TRV-330 8mm digital camera w/ Time Base Correction; video capture, editing, and 2-pass VBR encoding done with Sony Vegas Pro 13 at (disc 1) 6.6K max, 6.5K avg, 1K min; (disc 2) 6.6K max, 5.4K avg, 1K min; (disc 3) 6.6K max, 5.8K avg, 1K min; authored to DVD in Sony DVD Architect Pro 6.

All video editing, audio synching and DVD authoring by Silver Stallion (guitard on Dime)

audio option #1: unknown source/lineage; LPCM 1536 bit
audio option #2: unknown source/lineage; LPCM 1536 bit

The two audio sources both sound nice (especially for a 1988 arena show). But they both were sliced up with lots of snippets taken out. If it were only cheering between songs, then it wouldn't be a big deal. However, quite often the snippet contained the first few beats of a song or Bruce's intro of the song. I was able to cover all the missing bits by either copying and pasting from the other audio source, or from the camera audio. Generally speaking, the spots where the audio has been fixed sound pretty good, but if you listen closely, you probably would notice a difference.

NEW: Springsteen live in Landover 1978 - 2DVD - August 15 - pro-shot

Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band
Capitol Centre
Landover, MD
August 15, 1978
2 DVD set
Remastered by Miles Hai with new menus
NTSC

Remastered by Miles Hai wiht menus. The download includes "before" and "after" comparisons for the remaster.

original DVDs > Toast > Final Cut Express > iDVD > DVD-R



Sources: Four releases were used in this restoration - I F**ked Everything Up, Live on the Darkness on the Edge Of Town Tour, the Hojo version, and the Jersey Boy version. Watchdog's Live on the Darkness Tour was the main video source, Jersey Boy was the main audio source, and the other two were used to fill in bits and pieces here and there.

The Process: All the source discs were ripped using Toast (IÕm on a Mac), and the files were then imported into Final Cut Express. Luckily, the best video source included the original color bars, and these allowed me to adjust the color balance and saturation back to its original state - except that I discovered that each of the original three 60-minute sources required a different balance, and this turned out to also be true for the equalization of the audio. On top of that, the source images were very dark and grainy whenever the stage lighting got dark; and so, unlike the Passaic shows, where each of the cameras used required a different correction algorithm, for this show it was the different levels of stage lighting that required different treatment. I believe in the end what I have produced is the best looking, best sounding, and most complete version of this concert currently available.
Cover art included.

Comments: Originally shared in 2012, this represents the best version I'm aware of for this complete video recording from the "Darkness on the Edge of Town" tour. The setlist is pretty standard for this point of the tour, but the notable thing is that the video quality is quite superior to that which had circulated publicly before. Portions of the video are somewhat dark (standard for videos that came from the Cap Centre's in-house video system), but overall it's quite watchable and the remastered version corrected for many of the flaws of the previously available version. I'm not quite sure if this is "definitive" (there may be better versions out there, though this is the best one I have), but it's a highly watchable version of a nearly-complete show from Bruce's most critically acclaimed era.

The audio soundtrack sounds great, and is a worthy accompaniment to the video.
