    Thank you, internet for allowing those of us who were 3 years old at the time to be able to catch a glimpse of one of the Boss’ greatest tours.

    And thanks to all the people who painstakingly converted their old concert videotapes to digital! I was old enough and lived in the right neck of the woods but lacked the enlightenment to have gone to see Bruce back then, so I appreciate it too.

    YouTube is a glorious thing! Unfortunately I have no speakers at work, so I’ll have to listen vicariously through your description.

    This performance of “Streets of Fire” is circa 1978 after Darkness On the Edge of Town (which battles with The River for my favorite Boss album) was released. There is a lot of posing going on in this show, but Bruce is no poser, the undercurrent of anger and frustration going on here came after a year-long legal battle with Bruce’s former manager.

    Have you read Greetings from E Street: The Story of Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band? It’s been awhile for me, but it has all this weird wonkalicious memorabilia that it’s too tasty to resist! Though it’s not as fun as “Big Man: Real Life & Tall Tales” by Clemons, which is more gossipy and fun, while still being appropriately reverent.
