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'
