Springsteen's voice was rough on his latest studio album, not sure about doing soul songs. Of course I like Bob Dylan's three Sinatra albums and he never could sing.

Rolling Stone founder Jann Wenner:
There’s a new Bruce [Springsteen] record coming out this fall, which is stunning. I’m listening to that.

I hope it follows in the same "throwback" footsteps as Letter to You.

Off the top of my head, I only know three of those songs. But sure I will check it out. Hope he only plays a couple on his tour. I want as much of his original stuff as possible.

For what he charges for a ticket he should play all of the first seven albums and then another two hours of deep tracks each night.

I liked it. His voice is stronger than it was on the last album. Pre-ordered the CD along with the upcoming Neil Young earlier.

Listened to the soul album twice and, well, if you like Bruce Springsteen and you like soul this should be you're kinda' album but I think the hardcores will probably protest in the same way they did when he did the Seeger Sessions. Personally, I love when an artist experiments outside of what they are more known for and Bruce certainly has done that here.

I think he pulls it off, alright. As a cover album in the twilight of his career, it's pretty good and I was glad he mostly stuck to lesser known cuts. The backing vocalist and band are fantastic and I'd pay to see this side of him live (you know, just not $500 a ticket ).

Is this just a filmed version of an already aired Stern radio show?
If so that's kinda chintzy for HBO.

Whatever it was, it was an absolutely fantastic interview. I was transfixed for over 2 hours. Who knew The Boss was so nuerotic?

He's been a pretty open book in recent years between his autobiography, his Broadway show and the podcast series he did with Barack Obama.
Still I will check it out soon.

My wife is a huge fan of The Killers and my obsession with Bruce is well documented here by now. For a Christmas present, I bought this original 16 X 20 photo print from The Killers store, which I will get framed.

Awesome pic, Decker!

Thanks for the tip on the Bruce interview with Stern. I could listen to Bruce talk for hours (and have with his audiobook which I totally recommend).
Speaking of him and Stern, there's a great clip out there back in the 80s when Clarence was on the Stern show and they called Bruce's answering machine.

What did you think of the Soul album?

Tour rehearsals have begun in NJ! I'm looking forward to seeing the setlist from the opener in Tampa.

Yeah, I love picking up the first night and last night tour release downloads because you really see each tour how Bruce shapes a show.

Ghosts from Letter To You should be amazing with a big crowd.

Opening night in Tampa. I watched most of the show through Facebook as some guy right behind the stage was streaming. A solid opening night, Bruce was a little less active in terms of going into the audience than in the past but the band hadn't been on stage in six years and he's 73 so that's to be expected. No signs allowed, at least last night. I'm seeing him on Sunday.

Main Set:
1. No Surrender
2. Ghosts
3. Prove It All Night
4. Letter To You
5. The Promised Land
6. Out In The Street
7. Candys Room
8. Kittys Back
9. Brilliant Disguise
10. Night Shift
11. Don't Play That Song
12. E Street Shuffle
13. Johnny 99
14. Last Man Standing (Solo)
15. House Of A Thousand Guitars
16. Backstreets
17. Because The Night
18. She's The One
19. Wrecking Ball
20. The Rising
21. Badlands
Encores:
22. Burning Train
23. Born To Run
24. Rosalita
25. Glory Days
26. Dancing in the Dark
27. Tenth Avenue Freeze-Out
28. I'll See You In My Dreams (Solo)
2 hours, 43 minutes
