NEW: Springsteen live in Red Bank 2008 - 3CD - May 7 - very special show!!

Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band
2008-05-07
Count Basie Theatre, Red Bank NJ

Description:

This historic Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band show features the Darkness on the Edge of Town and Born To Run albums in their entirety, plus encores. The band has never performed these albums in their entirety before.

The Count Basie Theatre holds about 1500 and this was the band's first performance in a venue this small in 30 years.

The show was a benefit to raise money to renovate the historic Count Basie Theatre; it raised $3 million, with auction ticket prices ranging from $1,000 to $15,000 per seat.

The recording sounds quite good for an audience recording from the back of the orchestra. There is some crowd clapping, yelling, singing along, and a little talking, but it's not too obnoxious. The band drowns out the audience during most songs. I'd rate it 8.5/10.

Notes:
May 2 / Ft. Lauderdale, FL / Bank Atlantic Center
"With this their seventh Magic show in the less than two weeks since Danny Federici's death, Springsteen and the E Street Band have made it to the end of the spring leg in fine style. Wrapping things up at the rescheduled Ft. Lauderdale show, energy was back up after a little dip in Charlottesville, with the band on top of their game tonight.
The tour premieres keep coming, with "I Wanna Be With You" getting its first outing for an audience that was worthy of the sentiment -- a tremendous crowd. While "Streets of Fire" has inexplicably remained unplayed since Milwaukee, despite numerous appearences on the handwritten setlist for this recent stretch, "This Hard Land" made good on recent setlist teasers and was great to hear.
A long story before "Growin' Up" was about Danny's love for CB Radio -- "a really, really crude version of a localized internet," Bruce observed. In '69, Springsteen's parents moved out to California, and on the same day, the band moved in. Danny, Clarence, Mad Dog, and Garry -- that lasted exactly 30 days, Bruce said, before the landlord kicked them out. But while they were there, Mad Dog kicked out the window on the second floor so he and Danny could go up to the roof and mess around on the CB -- Bruce said he'd come home and find "a lot of truckers sitting in the living room."
In the encore, "Thunder Road" was played for Barbara Carr and Soozie Tyrell. "Tenth Avenue Freeze-out" featured a special guest -- James Michael Brown is their airplane pilot, "and he plays the trumpet!" said Bruce. So with Mike joining Clarence, the horn section effectively doubled. And there was one more magic trick in store after "American Land" -- after the bows, Bruce said, "This is our last night!" and offered one more visit from Kitty to close out the leg."

NEW: Springsteen live in Atlanta 2008 - 2CD - April 25

April 25, 2008 - Atlanta, Georgia - Philips Arena

LOCATION : Recorded from lower level, stage left, almost straight back (Section 112 Row U)

NOTES : Clean recording with little crowd chatter. I didn't do any EQ'ing of any sort.
Feel free to do with this what you may, except sell it, of course. Comments on quality are appreciated.

Almost 28 years! has passed since my last Springsteen "revival" in Austin TX (11/09/80, to be exact), and other than the fact that the hair on the crowd has gotten thinner and much grayer, last night was
just like I remembered the last one. A non-stop, in-your-face, high-energy, sing-a-long to some of the greatest songs in the soundtrack of my life.

Many thanks to the hardest working man (and band) in show business for the joyous walk through the years of these great American songs.  Bruce is still in wonderful form, musically and physically. A true wonder for a 58-year-old guy. Max still beats them HARD and fast. Clarence, although he still nails every solo on his sax, doesn't look so heathly to me. I'm sure that isn't news to the "real" Springsteen fans out there.

The sound on this recording actually turned out much better than I would have expected.  To my ears, this band should tour with 5 pieces, maybe 6 tops.  Nine musicians often cluttered up the sound, with all the intstruments competing to be heard.  Just one guy's opinion. Of course, who could you cut ?! Most of them have been with Bruce for 30+ years…. Enjoy !
