    Bruce made it to the show last night.
    He looked as he did in the " bedazzler " photos from the Light Of Day Benefit a few weeks back, gray milkman hat and all .
    The security was insane as usual- no pics or vids to share. :mad:
    It was great to see him playing an electric guitar again.! :jam: :eek: :eek:
    Bruce hit the stage approx 1130 pm, Oh yeah- i met and chatted with Senetor Lautenberg of NJ afterwards. Huge Bruce fan.

    Setlist : Darlington County , Spirit In The Night , Seaside Bar Song , Waitin' On A Sunny Day , *10th Avenue Freeze Out ( w/ Jon Bon Jovi and full horn sections :eek: ) , Santa Claus Is Coming To Town ( full stage ) .

    * The last E Street Tour this basically was dropped off the setlists for " Marys Place " ( the extended long band intros , ect ) , so it was nice to hear this again and especially with all the horns and all those electric guitars ... :eek: :eek:

    photos some poeple snuck in there- i was in the loge with only 3 rows , it extended down over the orchestra- so security was too tighht to even take my cam out ) :crying: i actually enjoyed the show instead of looking thru the lens.

    WHEN THEY SAID "ALL-STAR," THEY MEANT IT

    The Boss man joins the band for Bobby B's holiday jam
    On Tuesday night, "The Bobby Bandiera All-Star Holiday Concert" lived up to its billing, as Bobby wrangled a whole host of New Jersey greats for a full night of holiday cheer. The show was a benefit for the PALS Support Group, a charity started by Terry Magovern in memory of Joan Dancy. After a few words from Dave Marsh about the good cause, it was right into nearly four hours of music: Tim McLoone and his Holiday Express kicked things off, followed by sets from the balcony-storming Mark Pender and LaBamba, Bandiera's smokin' Rock and Soul Revue, Southside Johnny, and Gary U.S. Bonds. The night's penultimate artist was Bon Jovi, who turned in a charming set of yuletide R&B, like "Please Come Home for Christmas," "Blue Christmas," and "Run Run Rudolph." Dave Gaetano tells us, "It was a fantastic evening of music. The night kept building and building. Everyone knows the vibe that is present when Bruce is going to be making an appearance, and that electricity was in the air from the pre-show reception right on through the last notes of the evening."

    Yes, then there was Bruce, closing the show with a 35-minute set. Backed by Bandiera's Rock and Soul Revue, plus a big swath of Jukes making for an immense horn section, Springsteen brought the heat.

    Flynn McLean writes: "Bruce was on fire from the minute he sauntered on stage last night, casually picked up an electric guitar, and launched right into the opening chords of 'Darlington County.' In a setting where he could have played it cool, he took it up a notch and had the entire theatre eating out of his hand. While many fans were just happy to see him strap on an electric guitar, Bruce showed that he could still make it talk -- the intensity of his playing, especially on 'Spirit in the Night,' not usually a guitar-driven song, blew everyone away. Bruce let the audience take over a couple of lines during 'Spirit,' much to its delight. The horns added a lot to 'Darlington' and 'Seaside Bar Song,' and, of course, 'Tenth Avenue Freeze-out,' which included Jon Bon Jovi. A fun 'Waitin' on a Sunny Day,' which Bruce dedicated to Terry, could have been better than in 2003.

    "The finale of Santa Claus brought the surreal images of Bruce sharing the stage with the Grinch (not Southside Johnny, but a person in an actual Grinch suit) and a couple of Sesame Street characters. [It was a 'Flaming Lips-like scene,' says Gaetano.] Jon asked Bruce if he had been good this year, and Bruce responded by playing some hot licks on the guitar while Santa Claus bore witness. It was just a great night, even if the show lagged a bit at points over the course of the night before Bruce took the stage. And wWhile we certainly enjoyed the artistry of Devils & Dust and the enthusiasm of the Seeger Sessions, last night reminded us of what Bruce does best: rock the house."

    Shore legends play Santa
    Springsteen and Bon Jovi lead rollicking revelry that tops $100,000 for ALS
    Thursday, December 14, 2006

    BY JAY LUSTIG
    Star-Ledger Staff
    POP/ROCK

    For once, Bruce Springsteen was at a loss for words.

    He and Jon Bon Jovi were exchanging banter at the end of "Santa Claus Is Coming to Town," the grand finale of the Bobby Bandiera All-Star Concert that took place Tuesday night at the Count Basie Theatre in Red Bank.

    Bon Jovi, playing Santa Claus, asked him if he had been good this year. Springsteen replied that he had.

    Then Bon Jovi threw him a curveball, asking him to define "good."

    Springsteen hesitated a moment, then played a sweet, lyrical guitar solo that appeared to be an attempt to define the word, nonverbally.

    It was that kind of night, as old friends, including Southside Johnny Lyon and Gary U.S. Bonds, got together to raise more than $100,000 for the Joan Dancy & PALS (People with ALS) Support Group. The organization was named for the late Joan Dancy, a Middletown resident who died from ALS -- amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, a neurological disorder also known as Lou Gehrig's Disease -- last year. It was founded by Terry Magovern, who was Dancy's fiancé, and is Springsteen's longtime bodyguard, assistant and friend.

    Despite the seriousness of the cause, the show had the same loose, fun spirit of Springsteen's own holiday concerts of the past. Costumed revelers (Santa Claus, the Grinch, Elmo, Frosty the Snowman, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer and more) joined the musicians for "Santa Claus Is Coming to Town." Springsteen and Bon Jovi cracked each other up with goofy dance moves when they dueted on "Tenth Avenue Freeze-Out." During a set by the Mark Pender Band, trumpeter Pender, trombonist Richie "La Bamba" Rosenberg and other horn players strolled through the theater's orchestra section, then up to the balcony, continuing to play the whole time.

    For his show-closing set, Springsteen was backed by Bandiera (who also played with Bon Jovi, Southside Johnny and Bonds) and 13 members of Bandiera's Jersey Shore Rock-n-Soul Revue. They created a big, brassy sound on old favorites such as "Darlington County" and "Spirit in the Night" as well as one of Springsteen's most hopeful recent songs, "Waitin' on a Sunny Day," dedicated to Magovern and the late Dancy.

    Springsteen's set peaked with a fast, forceful version of "Seaside Bar Song," a'70s obscurity that he resurrected on his 1998 "Tracks" boxed set, and has performed occasionally since then.

    Bon Jovi dueted with Southside Johnny on "I Don't Want to Go Home" before presenting his own set, which emphasized seasonal material such as "Blue Christmas" (sung in an Elvis-like croon), "Run Rudolph Run" and "Please Come Home for Christmas."

    He closed with his recent hit, "Who Says You Can't Go Home." He introduced the song by talking about how proud he was to be from New Jersey, and how happy he was to share the stage with people like Southside Johnny ("my hero"), Springsteen ("the man"), Bonds ("one of the originators") and two original members of Southside Johnny's Asbury Jukes (keyboardist Kevin Kavanaugh and percussionist Ken "Popeye" Pentifallo).

    Previously, he was also effusive in his praise of Bandiera, a longtime Juke who played guitar on the recent world tour by the Bon Jovi band. He called him a "true legend of the Jersey Shore."

    The show opened with short sets by Holiday Express and the Mark Pender Band, and a long one by the Jersey Shore Rock-n-Soul Revue. The Revue concentrated on songs from their recent Phil Spector tribute concert ("Da Doo Ron Ron," "Be My Baby," "River Deep -- Mountain High," "Unchained Melody," "Let It Be"), but ended with an extended run through Neil Young's "Like a Hurricane," complete with a mesmerizing guitar solo by Bandiera, who drew from Young's own palette of earthy grunge-rock tones.

    Southside Johnny sounded hoarse singing "Spanish Harlem" with the Jersey Soul Rock-n-Soul Revue, but rallied during his own set, belting out classics like "Talk to Me" and "Trapped Again." Bonds also made a cameo with the Revue, on "Little Bitty Pretty One," then returned for a set of his own, which included trademark songs like "New Orleans" and "Quarter to Three."

    Springsteen's first two albums were commercial duds. He had no money, and the sound he wanted for his third record—The Boss later described it as 'Roy Orbison singing Bob Dylan produced by Phil Spector'—required months of studio tinkering to perfect. So Jimmy Iovine (then a recording engineer, now the head of Interscope Records) took care of hiding stacks of overdue bills from the record label while Springsteen obsessed over things like just how many guitar overdubs the title track needed. If it seems trivial to note that the final tally was 12, listen again, because, it's the accumulation of details, both musical (the warm wind of the saxophone on "Tenth Avenue Freeze Out," the violin that comes out of nowhere on "Jungleland") and lyrical ('The screen door slams/ Mary's dress waves...') that makes Springsteen's grandiosity both operatic and personal. No one before or since has tried to pack as much of the American experience into 39 minutes, and no one has come as close to succeeding.

    interesting post- i borrowed it from backstreets

    Bruce, thru Jimmy Iovine, gave Patti a cassette of the song. The lyrics were 90% done. She changed some and finished it ......

    Patti's version:

    Because the night

    take me now baby here as I am
    pull me close, try and understand
    desire is hunger is the fire I breathe
    love is a banquet on which we feed

    come on now try and understand
    the way I feel when I'm in your hands
    take my hand come undercover
    they can't hurt you now,
    can't hurt you now, can't hurt you now
    because the night belongs to lovers
    because the night belongs to lust
    because the night belongs to lovers
    because the night belongs to us

    have I doubt when I'm alone
    love is a ring, the telephone
    love is an angel disguised as lust
    here in our bed until the morning comes
    come on now try and understand
    the way I feel under your command
    take my hand as the sun descends
    they can't touch you now,
    can't touch you now, can't touch you now
    because the night belongs to lovers ...

    with love we sleep
    with doubt the vicious circle
    turn and burns
    without you I cannot live
    forgive, the yearning burning
    I believe it's time, too real to feel
    so touch me now, touch me now, touch me now
    because the night belongs to lovers ...

    because tonight there are two lovers
    if we believe in the night we trust
    because tonight there are two lovers ...

    and Bruce:

    Take me now baby here as I am
    Pull me close try an understand
    I work all day out in the hot sun
    Stay with me now till the mornin' comes
    Come on now try and understand
    The way I feel when I'm in your hands
    Take me now as the sun descends
    They can't hurt you now
    They can't hurt you now
    They can't hurt you now

    Because the night belongs to lovers
    Because the night belongs to us
    Because the night belongs to lovers
    Because the night belongs to us

    What I got I have earned
    What I'm not I have learned
    Desire and hunger is the fire I breathe
    Just stay in my bed till the morning comes
    Come on now try and understand
    The way I feel when I'm in your hands
    Take me now as the sun descends
    They can't hurt you now
    They can't hurt you now
    They can't hurt you now

    Because the night...

    Your love is here and now
    The vicious circle turns and burns without
    Though I cannot live forgive me now
    The time has come to take this moment and
    They can't hurt you now

    Because the night...


    seeing this done sporatically on the Reunion Tour was cool . Hopefully we'll get to hear it again on the next final tour.

    The album is packed with legendary performances, including the often-bootlegged but previously unreleased Springsteen favorites-- Born In The USA and Helpless (w/ Bridge Benefit founder Neil Young).

    This release will only be available on iTunes, and a portion of proceeds will be donated to the Bridge School, an educational program dedicated to ensuring that children with severe speech and physical impairments achieve full participation in their communities through the use of augmentative and alternative means of communication.

    The ragamuffin gunner is returnin' home like a hungry runaway
    He walks through town all alone
    He must be from the fort he hears the high school girls say
    His countryside's burnin' with wolfman fairies dressed in drag for homicide
    The hit and run, plead sanctuary, 'neath a holy stone they hide
    They're breakin' beams and crosses with a spastic's reelin' perfection
    nuns run bald through Vatican halls pregnant, pleadin' immaculate conception
    And everybody's wrecked on Main Street from drinking unholy blood
    Sticker smiles sweet as gunner breathes deep, his ankles caked in mud
    And I said "Hey, gunner man, that's quicksand, that's quicksand that ain't mud
    Have you thrown your senses to the war or did you lose them in the flood?"

    That pure American brother, dull-eyed and empty-faced
    races Sundays in Jersey in a Chevy stock super eight
    He rides 'er low on the hip, on the side he's got Bound For Glory in red, white and blue flash paint
    He leans on the hood telling racing stories, the kids call him Jimmy The Saint
    Well the blaze and noise boy, he's gunnin' that bitch loaded to blastin' point
    He rides head first into a hurricane and disappears into a point
    And there's nothin' left but some blood where the body fell
    That is, nothin' left that you could sell
    just junk all across the horizon, a real highwayman's farewell
    And he said "Hey kid, you think that's oil? Man, that ain't oil that's blood"
    I wonder what he was thinking when he hit that storm
    Or was he just lost in the flood?
    Eighth Avenue sailors in satin shirts whisper in the air
    Some storefront incarnation of Maria, she's puttin' on me the stare
    and Bronx's best apostle stands with his hand on his own hardware
    Everything stops, you hear five, quick shots, the cops come up for air
    And now the whiz-bang gang from uptown, they're shootin' up the street
    And that cat from the Bronx starts lettin' loose
    but he gets blown right off his feet
    And some kid comes blastin' round the corner but a cop puts him right away
    He lays on the street holding his leg screaming something in Spanish
    Still breathing when I walked away
    And somebody said "Hey man did you see that? His body hit the street with such a beautiful thud"
    I wonder what the dude was sayin' or was he just lost in the flood?
    Hey man, did you see that, those poor cats are sure messed up
    I wonder what they were gettin' into, or were they just lost in the flood?

    that live 1975 dvd just may be the greatest concert ever.



    ever.

    bruce's first record is criminally underrated.

    that being said, the definitive versions of Lost in the Flood and Spirit in the Night are on the live 1975 cd.

    Check out this performance footage

    August 15 , 1978 Largo
    Quarter To Three, Jungleland
    some of the best footage known to exist of this show. ( thanks Mr Chappelow ) alltho it ends abruptly.
    Check out Bruce working the crowd , and going absolutely crazy , jumping on the piano, on the speakers, banging the drums, and hitting piano keys with his boot. And theres his trusty Tele once again . Easy to see why he is The Boss

    Great stuff......check out the video from LA Coliseum, Sept. 30th, 85. I was there! Way in the back, never sat down. A really great night. A double live album was recorded & at one point, before he starts a certain song, (not telling which), I can even hear myself scream....from waaaay in the back. Too funny.

    Disc 5: And Now for Something Special

    While the setlist on the Darkness tour did not tend to change wildly from night to night, a wide selection of original material was played during the course of the tour, including all of Born to Run, all of Darkness and about half of the material from the first two albums. In addition, there was a wealth of new original material, which had not made the Darkness,
    although most of these songs would be eventually released on subsequent albums and later, box sets. There is not enough space on the first three discs to include all the essential original songs played on the tour; here we compile a number of excellent performances of various songs played throughout the tour in a sort of "the rest of the best" compilation.

    None of these songs were standard inclusions throughout the tour. Songs like "For You" and "Sandy" moved in and out of the set throughout the tour. But "Lost in the Flood" was only played a couple of times during the entire tour. Of particular note on this set is "The Promise", which was used as an encore early on in the tour before disappearing from the live set for over twenty years. This track had almost made it to the Darkness album and was long considered to be one of Bruce's best ever unreleased tunes. Fans and critics alike have speculated over whether the song is about the infamous lawsuit that kept Bruce from the recording studio. According to the man himself, the song was written before the lawsuit, but by 1978 Bruce was singing the song with a rewritten final verse.

    Songs like the then unreleased "Independence Day" and "The Ties that Bind" underwent lyrical or music changes; compare for instance the versions here with versions on the other discs of the set. "She's the One", on the other hand was already an established live favourite from Born to Run and was played in a medley with various songs, which might change from night to night. The rampaging version from the Fox Theatre radio broadcast for instance, incorporates covers of "Not Fade Away" and "Gloria", and has some spectacular guitar work not included in the version on disc two.

    By the late seventies, the E Street Band was a red hot live band routinely performing songs in renditions far superior to the versions originally laid down in the recording studio. "Incident of 57th Street" was brought to new heights by an anguished guitar solo at the end, beautiful in its mournful simplicity. While on home turf at the Capitol Theatre in Passaic, NJ, the band played what may have been the tightest show of the tour; and "Kitty's Back" from that night demonstrates just how well the band could jam as a cohesive unit.

    1978 represented a time when Bruce was a rising star shining at his very brightest. The music of Darkness tour can be best described as intense, emotional and sometimes dark rock 'n' roll, delivered at its most energetic and exciting. The compilation has tried to distil what is left of that energy through "the magic of bootlegging". As you listen to these discs,
    close your eyes and be transported back in time to that magic era.
