OT: For Bruuuuce Fans


Giants Stadium 2009 [no label, 6CD]
Live at Giants Stadium, Meadowlands, East Rutherford, NJ; October 2
and 3, 2009. Excellent soundboard stereo.

On a night when you get the full Darkness on the Edge of Town album
played, Bruce pulls out a classic Elvis Presley song and the E Street
Band is absolutely on top of their game, that combined to make for one
pretty damn good show at Giants Stadium on Friday. Hearing Darkness
from start to finish made it a classic show of course. This was played
much tighter and much better than at the Count Basie Theatre benefit
in May of 2008, the only other time the album was played in its
- Stan Goldstein (nj.com), reviewing the October 2, 2009 show.

Back in 2009, the excitement over these Giants Stadium gigs was that
the Darkness On The Edge Of Town and Born In The USA albums were to be
played in full. Subsequently, soundboards of the live Darkness and
Born In The USA portions were released as bootleg silver discs but for
the complete shows, fans had to search out audience recordings. These
six discs then is the first time the complete October 2 and 3 shows
are presented in soundboard stereo. While the sound is excellent, fans
continue to question if these are truly soundboards. Some argue that
these are taken from IEMs (in-ear monitors) or could even be
IEMs/audience mixes.

What also created a buzz in 2009 was the new song, Wrecking Ball, that
was a tribute to the Giants Stadium which was demolished the following
year. Wrecking Ball became the title of Springsteen?s 2012 album; and
the song together with We Take Care Of Our Own, Shackled And Drawn,
Swallowed Up, Land Of Of Hope And Dreams and American Land showed
Springsteen tipping his hat to the Occupy movement and finding him
among the folks on Main Street.

Thanks to Lincoln Park Mark for sharing the tracks.
