Editors’ Notes

Bruce Springsteen earned his reputation as one of the greatest rock ‘n’ rollers of all time with unparalleled live shows. Even before he was well-known, his epic performances were often three or four hours and featured classic ‘50s and ‘60s rockers alongside the most inventive original songs of the ‘70s. Live/1975-85 lets us glimpse the magic. A piano version of “Thunder Road” from ‘75 starts the set. From there, Bruce’s legendary 1978 appearance at the Roxy in Los Angeles proves The E Street Band’s greatness. Then arenas beckon, and Bruce plays the big stages. Despite this, he still commands an unusual intimacy. He recounts stories of his youth. He dares break out the acoustic guitar and harmonica for “This Land Is Your Land,” “Nebraska,” and “Johnny 99.” Edwin Starr’s “War” crashes through the night, and Tom Waits’ “Jersey Girl” sounds like it was written for the Boss himself. But the heart of the experience is what you expect: inspired versions of “Born to Run,” “The River,” and “The Promised Land.” There isn’t much better than Bruce in his prime.

Customer Reviews

Stealing the River

This version of The River is probably Bruce's most moving piece. Of course, iTunes knows that and takes advantage of the situation. I have this set in hard copy on cd, but lost the one with The River on it. Why do I have to spend $35 for ONE SONG? If you want people want us to buy the whole album, fine. But at least sell these three albums seperately. I'll just get spend the $5 and get it on EBay I guess. Good work guys.

Never gets old

My dad has this album on vinyl and would play it from time to time when I was younger. I bought this album on CD a couple years back after I saw Springsteen live. There is no comparison to his live performances. His studio work speaks for itself, but if you have yet to experience the Boss live; either go see a show soon or purchase this album. I listen to a song or two from this collection everytime I turn on my Ipod, and it never gets old.

Missing speech

I bought this on iTunes after giving up on my old cassette copy. The intro and speech before War is not on the iTunes version. "If you grew up in the 60's, you grew up with war on TV every night..... Blind faith in your leaders or in anything will get you killed."

Guess that is politically incorrect these days.

Other than that, this is a great collection that I will continue to enjoy for the rest of my life.


Genre: Rock

When Bruce Springsteen finally broke through to national recognition in the fall of 1975 after a decade of trying, critics hailed him as the savior of rock & roll, the single artist who brought together all the exuberance of '50s rock and the thoughtfulness of '60s rock, molded into a '70s style. He rocked as hard as Jerry Lee Lewis, his lyrics were as complicated as Bob Dylan's, and his concerts were near-religious celebrations of all that was best in music. One critic became so enamored that he...
