Used to have this on vinyl5By Jreed333I spent many a night going to sleep to this when I was a kid. Saw Bruce when I was 8 at the Cotton Bowl in Dallas on the Born in the USA tour. Took my daughter when she was 8 and we met him. This remains the best live Bruce Collection ever. No longer 8. I'm heading to 40 and Bruce still speaks to me. Seeds is still amazingly great years later
The BOSS5By Celtics fan foreverYou can listen to anything that Bruce sings; whether it be a recorded version, demo version, live version, singing out of a garbage can, it'll be AMAZING! Yet, I prefer to listen to his live versions! There's just something that is truly magical about his voice when he performs a song live... There'll never be another like him! Never! I love Elvis, but Bruce is not only "The Boss," but he's also "The King" in my opinion! ❤️ I've had the pleasure to see this LEGEND live, and I was just in complete awe the entire (over three hours) time! It was three hours of pure joy and being blown away by this great man that I've idolized, loved, listened to ever since I can remember! I'm so BLESSED that my dad passed his love of Bruce on to my brother and myself! God Bless you BRUCE, (also, to The E Street Band) as you have, and are continuing to bless us after all these years! 🙏🏼❤️
Great deal5By 6kiwiHeard Jersey Girl on the radio today, which is one of my favorites. I immediately looked for that song but instead found this awesome album with 40 songs on it. It's only $1.99 just for this song but decided to buy the whole albumin for $19.99. What a deal!! I have read other reviews but don't understand why the amount of the album is so different from mine also I found this album by putting in the songs name along with his name. It did not come up under Woody. Anyway love a great deal. Sorry other people are having problems.
From cassettes to mp3, love this one5By JROsterholmI purchased the box set of cassettes in 1986-87. Still have the original cassettes in the box (no, not unopened). In my youth, there were plenty of musicians that provided plenty of songs that meant a whole lot to me for all sorts of reasons. Plenty of Bruce Springsteen’s songs were familiar, like Hungry Heart, Born to Run, Thunder Road, then his Born in the USA album exploded, and so did my interest in his career. I rolled back into his classic stuff from ten years prior. Jungleland, Rosalita, Tenth Avenue Freeze-Out, Saint in the City, and on and on. Lively, quick-paced, offering a risky scene at the same time they told a story of determination of some sort. Freedom. His earlier work, Born to Run and previous, is his best stuff. It’s very much represented in this awesome live collection. This collection demonstrates his roots in Roy Orbison and Bob Dylan and his inspiration to all kinds of musicians who came after him. A great stage show, and an amazing rock portfolio.
Live Bruce5By Bigtony2499If there's ever a live album every person should listen to, this one is the one. Nothing captured Bruce's live shows better than this. Other than the three shows at the Capitol Theatre in Passaic, NJ in September of '78...
bruce springsteedn and the estreet band live 19752By bosstl729have nothing but trouble with this album songs did not download properly and downloaded with wrong titles
Jersey Girl4By RCH3The interesting thing about this set is that it was THE first cd boxed set ever made. It was all about "Jersey Girl" at the time. A great song written by Tom Waits. Legend has it that it was written as a parody by Tom poking fun at how predictable Springsteen lyrics were. Who knows. Either way, Bruce made it his!
Looked Around Forever For This!!!5By Mike, hogger129I own this album on vinyl. It's near flawless. I could never find it on CD. I just got an old turntable of mine working and was listening to it. Now I've finally found a digital version that doesn't have any of the surface noises on it. Love it.
Growing up5By John ErdieMy parents bought me this album Christmas '87 on cassette, the first album of music I ever owned. I preceeded to play the tapes till they broke, including a car trip from NY to Houston and back. I only wish this offering had a pdf of the book included in the original album with all the lyrics and photos.
Incredible!5By SOURMILKMOONWhen this box set was released way back when, it was an eagerly awaited and highly celebrated release. It sold millions and held down the number one spot on the Billboard charts for weeks. Quite an accomplishment fir any artist and album,let alone a 5 LP box set. Now, a lifetime later, returning to this package is nearly as overwhelming as in its heyday. Track after track, hour after hour of well executed and recorded live cuts makes for a true masterpiece. Next to "Kick Out The Jams", this is my second favorite live release ever. Incredible "A+"
