    I really dig the solo version of Streets of Philadelphia as performed on the Tom Joad tour. It's really special.

    I didn't see these. My guess is they are Europe only.

    Not yet, thanks for the reminder. I wore those dvds out.

    The first River tour was my gateway.

    I wish I’d had bootlegs in hand when I first discovered Bruce

    I should say the actual tour was my gateway. Saw him live and never looked back. My first bootleg was Piece de Resistance on vinyl.

    Damn it, the link is already blocked. I remember hearing it a few months ago on a bootleg, but I haven't added it to my Apple music library.

    Saw Springsteen on Broadway this week. An amazing show. Not a concert. More of a 21st century spiritual autobiography.

    So it’s totally worth the hype?

    Yeah. But don't go expecting an acoustic concert. Half the show is spoken word.

    Still miss the late, great Warren Zevon. The track Disorder in the house has Bruce on vocals and a nice solo.

    Clip from that recording :
