Has it rained at all since you have been down there? I gotta admit I would miss the rain and the thunder.

Listening to the Bomb Scare Springsteen show from 1975 and
1. He and the band members are loose
2. Bruce sounds like Van Morrison at times

Bomb scare?

That American Idol show tonight is 2.5 hours long .

I hope the Bono part is posted on the internet, because I don't feel like sitting through 2.5 hours of American Idol for 5 minutes of Bono. Besides, Ghost Hunters in on tonight

yeah it rained and was cloudy almost the whole week my family was here when I first moved I felt so bad for them because they really wanted to relax in the warm air. They had about 2 days of nice weather. But not a drop since they left.

I think the Spring that I am missing at home is making me more homesick than the situation here. But that's gotten a little better in the last few days. It's just how we are so I know it'll come and go. I do have CD of thunder and ran so I might just have to sleep with it on

I went to a culinary store today after work to buy a few neccessites and I got a professional discount I heard rumors of such discounts available so I asked and they said if I had some sort of proof of employement (other than my chef's pants I had on) that I would get a 15% discount on every purchase. So I handed them my punch with my lovely mug shot on it and I saved $8.00

Yep. Bomb Scare. So good.
First set interupted by a bomb scare in the theatre.

Quote:
LITTLE QUEENIE (fades in) (8.43)/ E ST SHUFFLE (intro. 14.20) (song 10.20)/ SAINT IN THE CITY (5.20)/
SHA LA LA (2.49)/ JUNGLELAND (9.41)/ KITTY'S BACK (18.34)/ ROSALITA (10.40)/ DETROIT MEDLEY (4.11)/
4TH JULY ASBURY PARK (SANDY) (6.40)/ QUARTER TO THREE (7.20)

Audience tape of first part of show. The famous bomb scare show (aka "Are you loose?") Entire second set after
clearing the building was put on a soundboard. This is the first known Little Queenie and is hilarious as the band
had been in the bar for about 2 hours. The second set also exists on a audience shot film. CD releases "Milwaukee
Bonb Scare Show" (Mistral Music) & "We Had Too Much To Drink Last Night" (BS).

Review (Courtesy of Wanted Magazine)
Wanted - The Bruce Springsteen Bootleg Guide (Volume 1)

This brilliant show has been previously released on "We Had Too Much To Drink Tonight". Then it was in mono and in
very good soundquality. This release is in stereo and has excellent sound. Unfortunately, the soundquality drops on
disc two. There's suddenly a hiss presenton the first part. It gets a little better along the way. The two discs
feature the part of the show after the band returned to the from their hotel after the place had been searched for
explosives. Here you find the uncut version of the show. (The first version had blanks between songs.) This preserves
the great atmosphere (partly created because Bruce had one drink too many at the hotelbar). Also the songorder has
not been tempered with so you can fully enjoy this of this part show as it was actually performed.
Packaging: 8,5
Sound: 9 (Soundboard)
Collecting Value: 8,5

Review (Courtesy of The Promise)


I am probably in the minority here, thinking that if Springsteen should ever decide to release one entire show it
should be this one. Actually it is not even an entire show, for the opening few songs (mainly from Born to Run) are
missing.

Some time into the show someone called in a bomb threat and the venue, Milwaukee's Uptown Theater, was temporarily
evacuated. This set has been registered after the band returned to the building. And "let me tell you, there they
was" pissed like hell. After spending some time in a bar, Springsteen and the gang reopen the show with a rousing
version of Little Queenie preceded by a hilarious introduction during which Bruce repeatedly asks the audience "Are
you loose"? This version of Queenie is in my opinion one of at least three classic performances from this night.
Following is the set, which technically was perhaps far from perfect, but was played like it was the band's last
performance ever, or last live show on Earth for that matter. E Street Shuffle lazy and chatty as ever and full of
soul, Saint in The City with some chilling guitar licks, then Bruce calls for "moment of silence, Steve's guitar
broke": Sha La La follows played at punk speed. Fine performance of Jungleland closes the first disc.

The best version of Kitty's Back known to this reviewer opens the second disc. It is jazzy, it is messy and drunk,
yet just when you think the whole composition is going to fall to pieces it explodes and returns again, and again,
and again. Classic number two on this great disc. Rosalita together with an early and fine ("the favorite song in the
world!") Detroit Medley are next and then the main set closes with an always beautiful version of Sandy.

As for the classic performance number three from this night it has to be Quarter to Three. It is played with passion
and the a capella part seems extra long. At some point the band stops and Bruce has some fun with the audience asking
if they "don't wanna go home?" Bruce ends the song with his famous confession: "I am just a prisoner of rock'n'roll."
After hearing this show you will be one too.

Soundwise, this is a soundboard, but not a perfect one, for there is some distortion in the beginning of Kitty's Back
and the louder passages are a bit muffled. Still the sound is clear and bright, very "live," whatever that may mean.
I guess the best way I can describe it is that as far as live recordings are concerned, this one makes you feel like
you were there in the first row. Boy, I wish. If you are going to own one live recording in your life this has to be
the one.

Listening to the CD of rain and thunder sounds comforting and like a good idea

Professional discount

I cannot stand AI so I am hoping Bono's part will be posted somewhere. My former boss asked if I was going to watch him and I told her no and her jaw hit the floor.
I will be watching Ghosthunters too.

I hope that by the time I leave Indiana, I will have convinced my mother that we do not get the New England Sports Network out here.

Mom: Are you watching the Red Sox?
Meg: No, we don't get it out here.
Mom: Why not?!

We will have this conversation at least 6 more times during baseball season.
