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 !
