Bootleg Friday: Bruce Springsteen, 1974-2002

Ok, now that I've gotten the leaked version of Magic and am thrilled with what I'm hearing, I'm officially psyched for the tour. Tickets go on sale for Philly (the best city to see the band) tomorrow, and on Monday for Madison Square Garden (great) and the Meadowlands (awful - Jersey is possibly the worst place to see Bruce). So in that spirit, here is a random selection of some great live Springsteen and the E Street Band music from 1974 though to the Rising tour of 2002-03. There are some incredible covers here - a couple of Elvis songs, a Fats Domino song, a Dobie Gray classic and some great versions of some Bruce classics.

Download: "Good Rockin' Tonight" (Elvis Presley) 9/30/78, Atlanta, GA
Download: "Let The Four Winds Blow" (Fats Domino) 6/3/74, Cleveland, OH
Download: "Ain't Too Proud To Beg" (Temptations) 10/4/74, Detroit, MI
Download: "Heartbreak Hotel" (Elvis Presley) 7/7/78, Los Angeles, CA

I'm glad to hear you're positive about the new album. I havn't heard it yet but that single isn't promising. Thanks for the tunes though!

Great post. Darlington County seems to be not working. Radio Nowhere is awesome, screw anyone who thinks otherwise. Magic indeed.

Thanks for the music! Am an ex-pat living in UK and could not get tix for less than $300/ea for show in London. First tour I may miss in more than 20 yrs.

Just tried to download these. They seem to have been taken down? Is there a problem?

I'm having some trouble with my file hosting company, but it should be working fine now.

Down again?

Ben Lazar said...

Yes, down again. Looking for a new file solution.

That "Let The Four Winds Blow" smokes!
