When I began this year’s podcasts with Episode 58 I mentioned having a stock pile of amazing shows to kick the year off with. Well this one definitely falls into that category. This episode features an audience recording that is truly a classic and also a first on my podcast featuring the artist known as the Boss. Back on November 19, 1984, Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band rolled into Kansas City to perform a 3+ hour marathon of a concert in a building filled with thousands of screaming fans. The sound quality and song selection made this recording an easy pick, especially after hearing Bruce mention Ames, IA during his epic finale. Of course Ames is home of the Iowa State Cyclones which is my alma mater.
As you can imagine it was very difficult to whittle 3 hrs down to just 1 but hopefully I did a decent enough job getting a sampling of the wide range of songs. I strongly encourage you to download the entire show in order to get the full experience. One highlight of the show that I didn’t include was about 20 minutes from the end of the set Bruce pauses for a moment just to announce that he got his second wind and goes right into a cover of “Twist and Shout” mixed in with “Do You Love Me?”. Listening to this concert, Bruce’s love for performing music is palpable and he truly earns his nickname of the Boss. That band of his can kick some butt too. Well here it is, I give to you Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band!
