Live at Hammersmith Odeon - Bruce Springsteen
- Label: Columbia Records
A 2017 Record Store Day release that we still have in stock. Hot on the heels of Springsteen's breakthrough record of "Born to Run" and appearing on Time and Newsweek magazines in the same week, Springsteen and the E Street Band set out to conquer England for the first time. This 1975 recording is the complete show with Bruce and the E Street Band. It opens with the piano acoustic "Thunder Road" and then romps through several Born to Run cuts like "She's the One" and "Jungleland". It includes an epic version of "Kitty's Back" and a great cover of "Quarter to Three". This may have circulated on bootlegs for years (you may have even paid this much or more for vinyl back in the day, with plain white labels, right?) but this is the remastered and cleaned up version released for the first time on vinyl. It sounds pretty sweet. It originally saw the Light of Day officially in the Born to Run 25th anniversary box set release, but in DVD and digital form. It's a 4 record set with a few liner notes from Bruce himself.
