Notes from info file:
I would venture to guess that the majority of my fellow Dimers could point to the show or LP (or CD) release in their past that began a lifelong passion for either one artist's music or music general.
This is that show for me, not only did this show begin a 3 decade love of the music of Bruce Springsteen and the collecting of more Springsteen shows (not to mention everyone else) than I'd like to admit to, it was the show that made me realize music would play a big part in my life and began a 3 decade long love of all kinds of music.
As I recall this was my 3rd or 4th concert at the young age of 15 years old. I had seen Three Dog Night with Rod Stewart opening at the Cotton Bowl as well as Led Zeppelin at Memorial Auditorium on April 1, 1977. Sometime around this time I also saw a very drunk Jerry Jeff Walker but I can't recall if it was before or after this show.
Three Dog Night and Rod Stewart were great as I recall though I was 13 years old and at the Cotton Bowl they seemed to be about a mile away.
It was very cool to see Zeppelin, but it was the opening night of the '77 North American tour and let's just say they were a bit on the rough side and about a month and a half before I feel they hit their stride on that tour around the end of May and into June.
So we come to this particular show, we were on the front row of what Bruce refers to during the show as the suicide seats right in front of the speaker stack. It was loud, hot, intense and totally draining. By the time it was over it took a while to get my head around what I'd just witnessed and the power behind it.
Unfortunately, it is an incomplete recording but fortunately it is a very good recording.
I'm happy to share one the defining moments in the musical part of my life thanks to Dime. If your stopping by I'd love to hear comments on others defining musical moments or releases in their life (Bruce or not), those moments that eventually led to a future addiction to DaD!
My original transfer of the tape was using inferior equipment and software so this is a fresh transfer from a 2nd generation source. I did just a bit of work in pulling forward the vocals slightly (400Hz to 1K) and boosting the high range just a tad. Very slight 2nd gen hiss on the slower songs but I never ever use noise reduction so I haven't fooled with those frequencies at all.
As with all the audience recordings I post samples below so you don't waste your bandwidth...
