Springsteen Set

Recommended Posts

Has anyone bought the Bruce Springsteen box set, and if so, how is the quality?

 

TY

Hard to tell how good the quality is since Springsteen's voice is on the recording. :P

Probably still sounds like he has marbles in his mouth and someone has his arm bent behind his back.

Sorry couldn't help it never did like his voice.

Some people like Springsteen.  From my personal life experience, it was east coast and mid west origin college girls.  I never sunk so low as to take advantage of that, but I won't judge harshly anyone who did.

I do not own any Springsteen.  Heard a funny interview on NPR with his drummer. Says Bruce likes to ad lib a lot during shows and many songs start with the drums.  Occasionally, in mid-set, Bruce will nod or start a count, and he has no idea which song Bruce wants to do.

 They call them audibles and they occur several times during a show. Overall in the last 37 years, I have seen close to 100 shows. Nowhere near the total of some folks, but you have to give Springsteen credit, he brings it every damn night.

A friend of mine loaned me his lp of Nebraska after it came out. Still the only album of his I've liked. I think he' s a good lyricist.

If you judge Bruce on his vocals alone, yea he isn't Nat King Cole. But his songwriting skills are very impressive. He's a poet, check out some of his older lyrics, like Thunder Road, or anything from Born to Run. He sure puts a lot of effort into his live shows.

Saw him once, in college; they played WAY OVER TIME & really gave a great & long show.

If you saw him in 1978, supporting the Darkness on the Edge of Town album, you were very fortunate indeed. Those shows are legendary.
