  • There's one song from a 1975 show, which makes the title of this box set true in the literal sense, and eight from a 1978 appearance at the Roxy in Los Angeles, but in essence this is Bruce Springsteen in the '80s--physically huge, politically charged and desperate to connect. You get the sense this is no accident. LIVE/1975-85 easily could have been a celebration of Springsteen's rise to rock & roll fame, instead, it's a concerted effort to make something of it. Almost all of LIVE/1975-85 was recorded in arenas and stadiums and almost all of it is intent on spreading a message.
  • The cover song that resonates most isn't the party encore "Raise Your Hand"(from 1978) but the anti-war chant "War" (from 1985). The most astonishing sequence of songs is all acoustic and almost all angry: Woody Guthrie's protest song "This Land Is Your Land" and Springsteen's own "Nebraska," "Johnny 99" and "Reason To Believe." With its reverberant keyboards and a haunting intro that quotes the soul classic "Nowhere to Run," even the love song "Cover Me" sounds like some sort of protest. There's lots of celebrating and rocking here, too, but mostly there's lots to think about.

A great collection of live Brucey.

Not just music, the odd bit of storytelling or banter from The Boss is included, as well. Some fine renditions of his earlier work on here, indeed. This multi-album collection is absolutely worth it, for a different interpretation and some good live work.

The Boss at the peak of his success doesn't get any better than that! This three CD live boxed set is next best thing to being at a Springsteen concert! Thoroughly recommended

I received very good service from Fishpond when I ordered the books and C.D.'s from their Website. I am keen to order more because of this great service and for the fact that they have supplied me with books I have been wanting for a long time.

After the "Darkness" album, Bruce's work fell off for me. "The River" seemed redundant and "Nebraska's" minimilism was unengaging. The reason I bring this up is that discs 2 and 3 have too many of his songs from that era for me to want to listen to them. Disc 1 is the original Springsteen and you should buy the collection for just for the first 2 songs.

If you want to listen to one of the sweetest love songs ever, listen to the paired down rendition of "Thunder Road" If you want to listen to one of the hardest rocking songs EVER, listen to "Adam Raised a Cain". All the other songs are icing on the cake.

Disc 1 is the best
