I AM NOT TRADING ANYMORE

Introduction

First of all, I do NOT sell bootlegs, and I don't believe in making any kind of financial profit form them. Only Bruce Springsteen, the creator of this music, has the right to. But on the other hand, I believe that Bruce Springsteen fans, who have already purchased all official Springsteen albums, are entitled to have hands on his unreleased music and "trade" it freely.

Want List

I am now mostly interested in getting:

1968-09-28 - OFF BROAD STREET COFFEE HOUSE, RED BANK, NJ (as listed on Brucebase)
FLY AGAINST THE WIND / HEY JOE / IT'S TOO LATE / THE EARTH IS BROKEN / CARNIVAL SONG / TROUBADOUR / WAYFARING STRANGER / INSIDE THE CASTLE WALLS / IF I NEEDED SOMEONE
The above mentioned 9 song setlist emanates from an alleged 83 minute audience recording of Springsteen performing solo and live, sometime in 1968. The audio is not specifically linked to this show, details have been placed here merely as a logical reference point. A private collector claims to have this audio in their collection (obtained many, many years ago). The sound quality is alleged to be quite good. Brucebase was informed of the audio several years ago and was provided with basic details of titles/running time by the actual collector who claims to have it. However Brucebase has been unable to listen to even snippets of the audio and, as such, we cannot verify that the claim is genuine. Intriguingly however, one of the song titles provided, "Inside The Castle Walls" has subsequently turned out to be a verified Springsteen composition from this era (see May listing). The existence of this composition only became known in 2005, which lends some credence (but not compelling proof) to the claim the audio is real.

1970-02-28 - THE CENTER, FREE UNIVERSITY, RICHMOND, VA (as listed on Brucebase)
GUILTY / JEANNIE I WANT TO THANK YOU / YOU SAY YOU LOVE ME / CALIFORNIA BLUES / I AM THE DOCTOR / GOIN' BACK TO GEORGIA / AMERICA UNDER FIRE / THE WAR IS OVER / ON THE ROAD / SWEET MELINDA / CROWN LIQUOR / LADY WALKING DOWN BY THE RIVER
The above mentioned 12 song setlist is culled from a 90 min+ audience tape of the show that is in extremely limited circulation.

1972-02-25 - THE BACK DOOR, RICHMOND, VA (as listed on Brucebase)
YOU SURE CAN DANCE / SOMETHING YOU GOT / COWBOYS OF THE SEA / MAGIC KIND OF LOVIN' / WALKING THE DOG / DOWN TO THE RIVERSIDE (GRANDPA'S GONE DOWN) / ALL I WANT TO DO IS DANCE / LIKE A STRANGER / ROUTE 66 / IT'S ALL OVER NOW BABY BLUE / MAKE UP YOUR MIND / COMING HOME / COWBOYS OF THE SEA / WHEN YOU DANCE
One show, with The Bruce Springsteen Band the sole act on the bill. The seventh of nine shows held at the club during February. The setlist above is culled from a soundboard recording of excellent quality that is currently not in circulation. The master reel-to-reel recording was listed for auction at Sotheby's in June 2014 with a rather hopeful estimate of $20,000-$30,000. It has been suggested that Springsteen's performance was recorded at the behest of John Hammond, who was keen to hear Springsteen's abilities fronting an electric band. This fourteen-song setlist is likely to the be the complete show and is confirmed as emanating from this date.

1974-11-16 - LEONARD GYM, AMERICAN UNIVERSITY, WASHINGTON, DC (as listed on Brucebase)
INCIDENT ON 57TH STREET / SPIRIT IN THE NIGHT / DOES THIS BUS STOP AT 82ND STREET? / THE E STREET SHUFFLE / IT'S HARD TO BE A SAINT IN THE CITY / JUNGLELAND / SHE'S THE ONE / KITTY'S BACK / NEW YORK CITY SERENADE / ROSALITA (COME OUT TONIGHT) / 4TH OF JULY, ASBURY PARK (SANDY) / A LOVE SO FINE (cut) / WEAR MY RING AROUND YOUR NECK / QUARTER TO THREE
One show, held in Leonard Gym, with Springsteen & the E Street Band the sole act on the bill. The 14-song setlist above seems to represent the complete show. An audience tape (not widely circulating) exists with all tracks except the final two.

1975-12-30 - TOWER THEATER, UPPER DARBY, PHILADELPHIA, PA
I am looking for the audience tape, not the commonly circulating soundboard recording.

1975-12-31 - TOWER THEATER, UPPER DARBY, PHILADELPHIA, PA

1976-10-10 - MILLETT HALL, MIAMI UNIVERSITY, OXFORD, OH (as listed on Brucebase)

Audience tape.

1993 solo home cassette recording
Tracks: ANGELINA / BABY YOU'RE MISSING / BLIND SPOT / CROSS ROADS / DON'T CROSS THAT LINE / DON'T LET YOUR HEART GROW COLD/ DRY LIGHTNING / HOUSE ON FIRE / I DREAMT MY LOVE WAS LOST / I'M A GHOST IN MY DREAM / KNIFE IN THE BACK / ONE FALSE MOVE IS ALL IT TAKES / VISION SPIRIT / YOU CAME DOWN
