If the "rockers" aren't going, then tickets will be easier to get!


:checks watch: 24 hours from now, I'll be leaving Target with the record in my sweaty little hands.

Exactly!

I think you and I will be getting quite close to Mr. Springsteen this summer.


(Well, as close as we can with Patti around, hehe. )

No, you're spot on. The Tracks version, which had been heavily bootlegged for years, is vastly superior, in my opinion - it's beautiful and much more accessible than the regular version. Nothing against the original, though, as it does have this quiet, eerie sound to it that makes it a bit more haunting. But the Tracks version works better.

The most exciting things to me, other than the new album, that we learn from both of the articles above (plus some other ones I've read) is the fact that he's already got songs lined up for E Street, that he's already got an idea for Tracks 2, and that he went back and listened to the album from the 90s that he never released - the one where he's primarily backed by tape loops a la Streets Of Philadelphia - and that he hopes to release all three at some point.

It sounds to me like he's making a major effort to release stuff more quickly now, and it's quite the variety, too. I love it.

Disc Two is excellent and my favorite, because I've always loved The River outtakes.

Now I want a 28th Anniversary boxset of Darkness On The Edge Of Town, with a remastered album and a live DVD from the 1978 tour!
*DVD of the album sessions is also very welcome, but optional*

words cannot express how awesome bishop danced is.

and thundercrack it's definitely mostly just a rambling, jam-band-esque breakdown, but even the solos are catchy. kind of like how the allman bros "jessica" gets stuck in your head.


i've only listened to the entirety of disc 4 once but 1, 2, and 3

i was contemplating that at work when my supervisor walked in and asked what i was thinking about, i didn't notice she walked in. what a stupid question. i told her i was considering the differences between the version of the song playing and the album version. i might as well have told her i was studying non-euclidean geometry or something because she looked at me like i was crazy.

Then I'll get two tickets for the LA show, you'll fly out for it, and stay in my spare room.


And I'm not joking.

Unfortunately, I missed it. He's always a good interview.

But tomorrow morning he and the band perform, so I'd better not miss that.

I'm hoping they'll be on before 8, but I doubt it.
