* Full track from the "damien" source due to some over recording problems. M.P's explanation:
  "Born In The USA is very over recorded, I corrected the levels after that song"

** Track ending (mostly audience noise) includes a few seconds mixed from the alternative damien's 30/9/85 source.
*** Track includes a few seconds mixed from the alternative damien's 30/9/85 source.

------
notes:

I think it was in 2004 when the 'damien' source for this show started to circulate -
it was a lot better than the original source but it was for most parts fucked up
with noise reduction and the sound wasn't too good either (though it was a big upgrade).

This boot is 'remastered' from Mark Persic's (surprise, thank you Mark) master recording which seems to be a big upgrade again.
As this show is one of Bruce's best shows, I tried to improve this as much as I could - here are the results.
As I've said before, 'Mark's tapes are mostly very easy to improve' which means that these won't take as much time as most shows take to improve.
This show suffers from some loud audience noises from time to time, but if I can live with it, I hope you can too.

04-Twist and Shout(cut)
05-Stand On It
06-Janey Don't You Lose Heart
07-Travellin' Band
08-Twist and Shout-Do You Love Me

From Brucebase: Audience tape - Only performance of Janey and the live debut of War.

Notes: There are two separate Twist and Shout on D3, it is that way on the artwork so I assume there's a story behind this. According to BB and other sites I've looked at T&S was the last track. So my guess is when this boot came out it was inserted in the wrong place, cut, and stuck on the end OR it really follows BTR and there is a tape flip thus we get the rest of the show and T&S is from a different tape. Who knows, perhaps someone with cassetes can let us know. In any event an excellent end of the BITUSA tour show.

======

This one was re-edited two times (wasn't satisfied with the results), hope I got it finally right.

Huge thanks to mr. analog for taping the show and sharing the master. Thanks!

======

"This recording is absolutely sick and borderline ridiculous in terms quality for an audience.
If you want to hear power captured via digital audie, this is the tape for you.
Not sure we could do as well today for some reason and why is that?
One trainspotter moment I have called out before from the show is beautifully captured on this tape in the
first minute or so of "Born in the U.S.A." As some of you might know, for this tour Max Weinberg switched
from miking his drums to using drum triggers to fatten the sound. The drum trigger hits a sampler which plays
commanding "whoomp" sound. When Bruce starts BITUSA in Chicago, Max comes in with those single snare beats,
only someone forgot to turn on the drum sampler/triggers.
So for the first few bars its like "tick," "tick," "tick" as we only here the miked drum,
then someone throws the switch and it's "kaboom," "kaboom," "kaboom." The difference is incredible and you'll hear it here."
 -'Butterking'

"This was also my first Springsteen show (although my Dad's secretary wanted to take me to see him on The River tour--folks said NO--I was only 10).  I was playing high school football and had to run the mile for time.  I was running every day and I HATE running.  The Sunday before the show, I was laying in bed listening to WCKG (they USED to play music back then) trying to avoid getting out of bed to go running.
They announced that they were going to be giving away tickets to the show, so I figured that was an excuse to stay in bed a little longer.  I never actually thought that I would win.  When the time came, I called and actually won. I called my sister, who was working at a drugstore and asked her if she wanted to go. She didn't believe me. When I finally convinced her that I was serious, she dropped the phone and screamed.
This actually got me out of a HUGE jam with my sister, as she had graduated high school that summer and I never got her a gift, and her birthday was between the Sunday I won the tickets and the day of the show.
We went to the show with a friend of hers, his boyfriend, and a friend of hers (who I happened to be playing football with). We got there at 10am (general admission seating) and ran into some friends that had been there since 7am. We hopped in line with them and waited. When they finally let people in,
we ran (which sucked for me as I had a micro-cassette recorder in my shoe).
I taped the show from about 10 rows of bodies back, but all you can hear is Herman (the guy I played football with) screaming "BORN IN THE USA" for 3 hours with Springsteen in the background.  So this is a huge upgrade for me. It was hotter than hell that day and there was 1" thick black rubber matting covering the playing field. We kept going and soaking under the showers that the players use on the sidelines.
Someone near us had a bag of chocolate chips that get spilled and melted on the matting.
By the time we got home, we looked like we had spent 3 months in the same clothes in Beirut.
By the way, the show was SMOKING!!" - 'toadhead'

Thanks to the taper Rick B. - amazing recording (as all of yours).

BORN IN THE U.S.A. / BADLANDS / OUT IN THE STREET / JOHNNY 99 / ATLANTIC CITY / THE RIVER / WORKING ON THE HIGHWAY / TRAPPED / PROVE IT ALL NIGHT / GLORY DAYS / THE PROMISED LAND / MY HOMETOWN / THUNDER ROAD / COVER ME / DANCING IN THE DARK / HUNGRY HEART / CADILLAC RANCH / DOWNBOUND TRAIN / I'M ON FIRE / BECAUSE THE NIGHT / ROSALITA (COME OUT TONIGHT) / CAN'T HELP FALLING IN LOVE / BORN TO RUN / BOBBY JEAN / RAMROD / TWIST AND SHOUT - DO YOU LOVE ME

Audience tape released on CDR "The Clear Difference". Notorious show that led to the stadium requiring serious repairs. The rhythmic movement of tens of thousands during "Twist And Shout" nearly led to a structural collapse of the venue, which rests on a layer of clay. After the concert the concrete pillars supporting the stadium were extended to bedrock.

RE-UP: Springsteen live in Slane 1985 - 3CD - June 1

1985-06-01 - SLANE CASTLE, SLANE, IRELAND

BORN IN THE U.S.A. / BADLANDS / OUT IN THE STREET / JOHNNY 99 / ATLANTIC CITY / THE RIVER / WORKING ON THE HIGHWAY / TRAPPED / PROVE IT ALL NIGHT / GLORY DAYS / THE PROMISED LAND / MY HOMETOWN / THUNDER ROAD / COVER ME / DANCING IN THE DARK / HUNGRY HEART / CADILLAC RANCH / DOWNBOUND TRAIN / I'M ON FIRE / PINK CADILLAC / ROSALITA (COME OUT TONIGHT) / WHEN I GROW UP TO BE A MAN / BORN TO RUN / BOBBY JEAN / RAMROD / TWIST AND SHOUT - DO YOU LOVE ME

Audience tape. Springsteen’s first-ever concert in Ireland. The actual location was not Dublin (a common error) but the small village of Slane in County Meath, about 30 miles north of the city. Held in the daytime in a picturesque outdoor amphitheatre setting – and the temperature was unseasonably hot! This was the largest crowd Bruce had played to up to this point, with 90,000 to 100,000 in attendance. Prior to the show there was much concern amongst locals that the influx of Springsteen fans would result in disturbances and violence similar to the previous summer when Bob Dylan performed at the same venue. However, the day passed without any major problems. However Bruce did show some concern for the safety of the crowd during the show, the rhythmic swaying and movement meant there was real danger of crushing at the front. Springsteen was led to make a request for calm before "Johnny 99". News reports suggest that Eric Clapton and Pete Townshend joined Bruce on stage. First appearance of the River Boyne on the big screens during "The River" - this shot would continue to appear on the screens throughout the rest of the tour. Slane Castle overlooks the river. This was Bruce’s first full concert as a married man – consequently the crowd was treated to a special (and still never repeated) performance of the Beach Boys ‘rite-of-passage’ classic “When I Grow Up To Be A Man”.

It's possible that the Chuck Berry song was included in "Detroit Medley", as it was the following night in the same venue. "Santa Claus Is Comin' To Town" most likely closed the set.

NOTE:
This show has some parts where the bass distorts the sound a bit -
it's only on few songs and doesn't really bother that much though.

Let's say I'd rate my edits in 3 categories; A (Very good), B (good, has some problems) and C (shit).
This would be a 'B' (and I'll try to avoid 'C')

Audience tape. Available on CD. Bruce and the band return to the stage after nearly three weeks off. Apparently after the second song the crowd rushed the stage from the centre and many fans were trampled. The show was stopped for a time to sort everything out. "Born To Run" and "Detroit Medley" were filmed from the audience, possibly by local news. This would most likely have been done in an "unofficial" capacity.

- During 'Darlington County', after Clarence's solo the band seems lost again for a while but picks up soon.
- Very good performance of 'Nebraska'.

Bonus tracks from the master recording of April 28, 1988 with the amazing 'Across The Borderline'.

First Independence Day of the tour and debut of Travellin' Band in the medley.
Also notice right before My Hometown, some whacko seems to jump on the stage with Bruce.

audience recording

This is a very good recording of a rare Born In The USA tour show that opened with Badlands.
This recording is not bootlegged sourced.  I traded for this show on cassette in 1984.  Really fun
show, great crowd which Bruce comments about a few times, and a great setlist.  Although I don't know
the generation the sound is clear and there is minimal tape noise.  If you listen close you can hear
the taper identify Trapped in the first few notes.

01 Badlands
02 Prove it all night
03 Out in the street
04 Atlantic City
