Notes
Great uncirculated IEM recording of a great show, the North West US run has always been considered a highlight of the tour. Features one of my
favourite single performances of the entire tour in Highway 29, and a nice acoustic For You. Slightly better than the Portland IEM, to my ears.

Really nice, well shot DVD of a great Devils & Dust Tour show, dubbed with the IEM recording. If you want a guarantee of quality, while not an official JEMS release, the JEMS folks had a hand both the audio and video recording of this DVD. Note that the audio is the straight IEM (probably with some EQ, I don't recall), not the recently released IEM/AUD mix. It's no masterpiece but it is highly watchable, with Bruce in good humour in the penultimate show of the leg. With eldest son Evan on hand, there's a great version of Long Time Comin', and there's also a very atmospheric performance of Highway 29. Plenty of other rarities, including the tour premiere of Be True and the third Frankie in three shows.

NEW: Springsteen live in London 2002 - 1DualLayer - October 27

brucevideos presents...

Does This Bus Stop At Wembley Arena?

27th October 2002
Wembley Arena, London, England

-=-=-=-=-=-

Features:

- The entire show on one packed 8.5GB Dual Layer DVD (no discs to swap!)
- 2 camera mix - see below for details
- dubbed with Crystal Cat's "London Night"
- menus and chapters
- artwork included

DVD Info:

Video:
Angle 1 - stage right, from the master tapes. First hour in high quality "XP" mode, remainder in "SP"
Angle 2 - screenshot, from DVD 1st gen (no vhs stage). Re-encoded to correct resolution, max 8mbps

Angles mixed in MPEG Video Wizard - synchronisation between the two angles is perfect. Stage right angle mixing is lossless - no quality reduction over original DVD source. Screenshot angle had to be re-encoded due to incorrect resolution (704x480 rather than 720x480).

This is not a 2-cam mix in the usual sense - the stage angle is the primary angle, the screenshot was only used when necessary - ie cuts, security ducks, heads in the way or a generally poor view. Very occasionally neither angle had a clear view - not much I could do there.

Audio:
Source is Crystal Cat's "London Night", downloaded in FLAC from a silver rip.
Dubbed with Sony Soundforge and MPEG Video Wizard.
Encoded to MPEG audio format with TooLAME @ 384kbps
- not enough room for uncompressed PCM audio, and 448kbps AC3 sounded utterly terrible. If you think that AC3 is better just because it has a higher bitrate and a fancy name you'd be wrong. No bass, flat and dull. Probably down to London Night as much as anything else.

Authoring:
All done in DVD Lab.

=====

PLEASE NOTE: THIS DVD USES A DOUBLE/DUAL LAYER DISC AND WILL NOT FIT ON A NORMAL DVD-R!

You may notice a brief pause during Mary's Place - this is the layer transition, and is normal.

Use Nero to burn, just like you would a normal DVD.

11 The Making of "Hungry Heart"


Bruce shot his promo video for the 1995 re-release of "Hungry Heart" at Cafe Eckstein in
Berlin with Wolfgang Niedecken and his band. This excellent pro-shot footage features the
entire performance in front of a small crowd inside the cafe with a much larger crowd outside.
The unique occassion and the song selection of some great rock standards make this a very
enjoyable DVD.

A 15 minute "Making Of" documentary is also included, featuring footage of Bruce in and around
Berlin at the time of the video shoot.

This upgraded version uses a master copy of the "Making Of" promo tape and a 1st generation
copy of the concert as its sources. There is a noticeable improvement in picture quality when
compared to the original, although it is still not perfect by any means. There is a "Super Six"
logo in the bottom left corner of the screen throughout the shot, but any distraction this
causes is more than compensated by the cleaner image.

A shocking 26(!) long years after we filmed it, JEMS and Brucevideos are pleased to mark that anniversary and present a previously uncirculated video recording of the longest and arguably best show of the Tunnel of Love tour: night two at the Shoreline Amphitheater in Mountain View, CA, May 3, 1988.

The show was shot during the height of JEMS' otherwise indifferent interest in making audience videos. We brought the camera to town specifically to shoot both shows and in fact did not record audio ourselves, as our express purpose was to capture video. JEMS shot video of concerts as far back as 1982 but never fully committed to the medium for all the reasons you'd expect: hassle factor, venue security challenges, frequently poor results.

But in 1988, with a new video camera in hand and Bruce touring up the west coast, it felt like the time to try again with the new Sony CCD-V5 and its 6x zoom. We brought the camera into Shoreline for night one and about an hour of footage exists, shot from stage left high in the 200s. While it is not completely unwatchable, its close, as the shoot was marred by obstructions, cuts and very few steady shots.

We came out of night one deflated and frustrated, but not defeated. To shoot the show well and solve for those issues we needed an unobstructed view, a way to keep the camera steady and the opportunity to check the viewfinder on occasion without fear of being caught. But how? And then it came to us, like Bill Graham had suggested it himself.

A wheelchair.

Back in those days, there were no wheelchair tickets. If you came in a wheelchair with a ticket, the simply directed you to the wheelchair section. The wheelchair area was stage right in front of the 200 section. And while it was an obstructed view in the sense that part of the stage itself couldn't be seen given the severe angle, what could be seen had no heads or seats directly in front of it at all. Also, by sitting in the wheelchair, the camera could be steadied on the lap in the chair, and looking down into the viewfinder became possible.

And so it was that we rented a wheelchair and I did indeed push J into the venue. I seem to recall there's a long unpaved walk from where you park to the Shoreline entrance and we were debating how close we could get before J had to sit in the chair. But sit he did and exactly as we hoped, we were directed to the wheelchair seating area and J set up to shoot.

We had three tapes, extra batteries, the right vantage point and a plan. But as anyone who shoots audience video knows (especially back in those days), shooting for over three hours covertly is not easy, even from the wheelchair section.

The start of the show was missed while we got set up and much of "Be True" can't be seen in picture though the song is complete in audio. But after that point, dare I say it gets kinda good. There are cuts and battery changes. And there are moments where we lose the shot, something gets in the way, etc. Typical audience video shit.

That being said, there are long stretches of the show that are highly watchable, quite close and steady. You can't see the entire band (for instance, the Horns of Love are only visible when they come to the front of the stage), but what you can see I consider the best audience video of the Tunnel of Love tour. The super majority of what we shot, over three hours, is very good considering the era and the vantage point.

We picked the right show, too. After weeks of static set lists in '88, the most stagnant of his career, things started to loosen up during the five-night run at the Sports Arena in LA, notably the reintroduction of "Backstreets" and the debut of what for my money is still one of Bruce's greatest covers ever, The Sonics' "Have Love, Will Travel" (if it shows up on the current tour, I think we will have this torrent to thank).

Both songs are in the set here, but what made Mountain View 2 even more special was the encore, where Bruce blew past the set-closing "Raise Your Hand" and audibled "Little Latin Lupe Lu," not played since the legendary Boston Music Hall shows in 1977, and when that wasn't enough, "Twist and Shout" (both moments are highly amusing to watch and well captured). This show is as good as the US leg of the Express tour gets.

I was sitting elsewhere. On the lawn in fact. And why I wasn't audio taping escapes me, but I didn't need to be because Persic was. And our generous friend lent us his master tapes for this project. Persic himself once described this as one of his finer audience recordings and thanks to the shotgun Nakamichi mics and the repeater speakers on the lawn at Shoreline, it does sound uncannily close. You might ask why we didn't use the circulating soundboard recording of the show (surely the audio of a video feed, made famous on the Roses and Broken Hearts CD). Not only is it incomplete, but I find Persic's recording more satisfying to listen to. And its audience origin made it better suited for an audience video.

Persic's master tapes were key because the camcorder audio on our master video is quite poor and distorted. We knew we needed to swap it out and sync Persic's audio to our video. Having gone down this path before with our beloved compatriot Pete at Brucevideos with the Passaic and Widener College projects, I knew another three hours of syncing to picture threatened to put Pete in an early grave. And none of us want that.

What to do, what to do?

Then I had a novel idea and I knew just the man for the job, Hoserama. Many of his finest works involve the syncing and time alignment of multiple audio sources and he does so at a level the rest of us can't possibly achieve. So it occurred to me, rather than Pete syncing to picture, what if we asked Hoserama to sync Peric's audio to the camera audio to create a matrix with the camera audio as the baseline, then drop out the camera audio and leave Persic's audio in its place? All Pete would need to do then is rip out the entire soundtrack for each piece of the show (tapes one, two and three) and drop in Hoserama's synced Persic audio.

I have never heard of this being done before to sync audio to video, but it seemed logical and after talking it through with Hoserama, he agreed to do a test. Sure enough, the sync, drop and replace model worked, saving Pete literally dozens of hours of painstaking work. And Pete says the sync is better than he could do by hand anyway. A thousand Thank Yous to Hoserama for his invaluable contribution to this project.

Pete, as he has so graciously done before, did the rest, mastering and authoring to make the video and audio the best they can be. There are a few moments where the axis of the camera titled changing the horizon and in a few of the most egregious moments, Pete does some post-production to correct the problem. The image straightens but the quality worsens, so it is used sparingly. His work across the board is, as usual, top notch and there is no way this project happens without his involvement. Pete, once again, thanks.

Last but not least, I want to thank J, my friend of nearly 30 years, for allowing me to push him into the show in a wheelchair and for the staggering number of wonderful recordings he made under the JEMS banner low these many years. J has been having some health issues of late, and while I know he will bounce back again as he always does, I just want to say to everyone you couldn't find a better friend and partner in this crazy hobby of ours than he. Round for round, pound for pound, there ain't a finer man around.

From J's initial attempts to locate the video masters to the Apple ProRes transfer to borrowing Persic's cassettes to getting the files to Hoserama and Pete and then pulling them all back together again as authored DVDs, the Mountain View project has lasted over a year. We missed the true anniversary by a couple of days, but after 26 years, we're guessing you won't mind.

Wayne Darlington

OMG, I should have been getting wheelchair seats all these years!
Thanks for all the work as I know it was not easy!
Again, to all those listed above, we all really appreciate your efforts!!

NEW: Springsteen live in Paris 2013 - 2DVD - June 29

2013-06-29 Paris multicamera mix, Crystal Cat audio, Gijon bonus tracks, 2DVDs

Filmed by:

NB, Dan, ESTEBRUCE, Sal, boyissy,
lacabezonadeap7, Mark Steven, Rod,
Mike - "The Flying Greek” and others

This was the most time consuming video I ever produced. Over 350 single clips of which approx. 100 were just snippets. It was quite a task to find their place in the timeline and sync them perfectly to the others.
I am especially proud of this film. Working with some lower quality footage and so many snippets and still I was able to create a sheer fantastic watch.
HUGE thanks to all my friends for supplying me their videos! After the incredible Paris 2012 videos many of my friends went to the show with the intention to help creating a video that would be equally good as the 2012 Bercy videos.
It was my intention, too. After the great shoot in Wembley I had high expectations for this video shoot but I was only able to shoot some fragments. I filmed the whole pre-show (minus the first 2 minutes or so). That went really well but once the stadium was full we had a real bad position and I was not able to record much from the main show.
I recorded some of the "rare" songs but that's it. So again HUGE thanks to everyone who sent me their videos. Without you this incredible film would not have been possible.

The audio: Crystal Cat. Untouched. I think I didn't even mix in some of zimmy21's (incomplete) tape or mine...

The show: Back then I didn't enjoy it. Today I enjoy this video very much and see the show from a different perspective. It was a fun show with some real great performances.

As per usual this one will be GOLD soon. Artwork included. Burn to double layer (8,5gb) dvd discs.

Convention Hall, Asbury Park, NJ

Format: 2 DVD-R

Thanks to Mother Nature, what was supposed to be closing night is now the second
of three shows. Danny DeVito was not on hand but another local boy stepped up:
Jon Bon Jovi. In addition to the other returning guests from night one, Willie
Nile joined in for three of the closing rave-ups, "Christmas (Baby Please Come
Home)," "What's So Funny..." and "Santa Claus." The structure of the show
remained the same, a couple notable substitutions included "So Young and In
Love" for "From Small Things" and "Kitty's Back" for "Mary's Place." Sam Moore
was even more impressive on his second night - "My City of Ruins" went from a
song he barely knew to one he owns. "My City" and "What's So Funny..." is one
heck of a mood-switching one-two punch. Worth waiting in the cold and snow for.
Songs listed below have the most prominent guest-artist listed in parentheses,
but many performers were on and off stage over the course of the night.

and others

From Olli's notes:
NYCBC released all three shows shot from the videoscreen. The NYCBC footage is average at best and in
my opinion unwatchable on its own, especially the last third of each show. I created multicam mixes
for all songs where good alternate shoots existed. Some real spectacular upclose footage was recorded
by my friend Erik and other mostly screenshot recordings I got from lacabezonadeap7.
All other videos are youtube sourced. Most come from one of the best and most steady filmers from the
pit I know of: SomewhereInJersey75.
A pity that person does not share his/her source files. So it's youtube compressed footage I had to use.
The fact that the NYCB tapers don't use high quality gear, no high bitrates on their releases and
because of their annoying logos I had to reencode the footage once (to deblend the logos) before I
could feed it to my editing software. And then there is the screenshot "problematic" on its own
(lighting, lines, etc.) that as well causes a loss in terms of picture quality.
Now I talked a lot about the inferior picture quality. But you've seen the samples and the footage is
still quite nice. It's just not as good as it could have been...
Because of the low bitrate of most of the source files there was space for A LOT of footage on this
one disc. Audio has been dubbed with the best sources possible and kept lossless like on all my releases.
I think from the second night's show I always wanted to do a 2-source-audio matrix. Made some tests
and the two sources really benefited each other but I never got the time to do the mix. Maybe someone
else wants to try? I think one of the September Philly shows would benefit a lot from a 2-source-matrix
recording as well.
And no, it was not possible for me to do the complete shows. There is simply not enough good quality
footage and as I said the NYCBC footage gets really bad at the last third of each show where the video
screen changes between horizontal and vertical and with the house lights on the footage gets too bad
to watch at all and there are no other sources to cover this.

NEW: Springsteen live in Dublin 2006 - 2CD - May 5

Silent T - The Seeger Sessions in Dublin
Point Depot, Dublin, 5-May-2006

Here, somewhat belatedly, is the first European show, and arguably the first show of the tour proper.

I was there and it was an amazing show, real fun, with a very eager audience.

The title is a reference to the correct pronunciation of "McGrath". He explains how he was chastised about this in the intro, which is at the end of the track with 'My Oklahoma Home'. The pronunciation regressed on the subsequent BBC concert, so while the setlist may not be unique, this show may be only one with him getting that surname right!

The sound quality is ok, but could do with some improvement. Rather than fiddle with it, I have left this exactly as on the CD-Rs, so someone with better software and mixing skills will have an untainted source. If someone would like to do a remix, here are some areas in need of attention:
* The volume level is low and need normalising.
* May need more bass.
* There is some hiss on 's' sounds, I noticed this on 'My City of Ruins'


Setlist
01 - O Mary Don't You Weep
02 - John Henry
03 - Johnny 99
04 - Old Dan Tucker
05 - Eyes on the Prize
06 - Jesse James
07 - Adam Raised a Cain
08 - Erie Canal
09 - My Oklahoma Home
10 - Mrs. McGrath
11 - How Can a Poor Man Stand Such Times and Live?
12 - Jacob's Ladder
13 - We Shall Overcome
14 - Open All Night
15 - Pay Me My Money Down
16 - My City of Ruins
17 - Buffalo Gals
18 - You Can Look (But You Better Not Touch)
19 - When the Saints Go Marching In
