MP3 - Bruce Springsteen live in Richmond 2005 - 2CD - October 24 - IEM

Bruce Springsteen

Richmond Coliseum
Richmond, VA

Uber Series Volume 33

IEM Recording

The mix on most of the first disc, and parts of the second, is less than stellar as
the vocals are almost inaudible in places.  But it is the first recording of this
show to surface, so here it is for completists and those who were there.

No remastering was done to the discs after I received them in trade.  Feel free to take
a stab at such an endeavour.

Thanks to the kind soul who sent me the discs!

Back in the the Steel Mill stronghold of Richmond on a cold, rainy night,
Springsteen noted it was a "place without which I could not have survived. There
were two places we played -- here and Jersey. I'm not sure what the connection
was, but it kept us alive for quite a while there." Springsteen dug back to the
early days, playing "Incident" and "Sandy" both by request, and the
mesmeriziing, Dylanesque "Growin' Up" on ukelele ("Size does matter," he joked).
There was also a rousing piano version of "You Can Look," which Springsteen
mentioned that he would play despite the presence of his friend Bruce Hornsby in
the crowd. "Look over your shoulder, Hornsby!" he called out, "Fear for your day
job, brother!" Though the song selection in general did little to warm up
setlist watchers in the chilly Richmond Coliseum -- surprises were few --
Springsteen's choice of a back-to-basics set drew comments from some fans that
he must be rehearsing for Boston (based on the consistently high quality of
shows there, we like to think no matter where Bruce is, he's always rehearsing
for Boston). But many of the D&D regulars stood out in this solid show:
"Lonesome Day" and "The Rising" in particular sounded rich, the performances
strong and supple; plus a stunning "Promised Land" with a pin-drop quiet crowd,
a stately "Silver Palomino," and a spot-on falsetto romp through "All I'm
Thinkin' About." Extra shout-outs to Springsteen's security detail and arena
staff for removing the obnoxious, distracting dope who sat front-row center,
marring the first three songs of the evening.
