Bruce Springsteen Band
“2nd Annual Nothing’s Festival”
Brookdale Community College
July 10, 1971
Transferred and upped by MJK5510 (October 2012)
Transfer: Early 1980’s tape trade > Nakamichi CR-5A (Azimuth Adjusted) > MacBook Pro > Audacity > Peak Pro XT (Volume Smoothing/Edit/Indexing/Slight EQ) > xACT > FLAC
Contrast clause: This is different than the one posted here, http://jungleland.dnsalias.com/torrents-details.php?id=35315, in that this is transferred from my tape copy and is complete.
I’ve been slowly going through my 1000+ Bruce tapes, comparing to what is circulating and upgrading when possible. The transfer of this show comes from my tape copy and contains the 2 songs missing from the commonly circulating silver disc “Down The Road Apiece”. The 2 songs here that are not on that version are “Natural Magic (unfortunately cut) and “Jambalaya (Roll Over)”.
This show is the first known performance of The Bruce Springsteen Band (as a 9 piece band) and was billed as “Bruce Springsteen’s Band” on the flyer.
Outdoor performance, quality is very good throughout for the era … sample in comments.
-Natural Magic: cut after about 2 minutes
-Jambalaya (Roll Over): 30 seconds of speed fluctuation about 1 minute in.
Bruce Springsteen and the E-Street Band have been first artists to play in the Leed’s arena.

The european leg of the Wrecking Ball tour is almost over.
To console ourselves, I’m offering the book Queeing in Euope for free for one day only: friday, July the 26th (tomorrow!).
Although you won’t have to follow Bruce around Europe anymore, you can still use this guide while going on with your holiday in Europe, or to better plan “your” next tour (seems there will be a “new tour” in year 2015 – they’re just rumors, but… can we be disorganized, when it’ll happen?).
That’s true: it’s quiet weird that Bruce and the E-Street Band are going to play again in Moenchengladbach, but I guess there is still some chance for them to hold a show in Paris.
So, set now your reminder to download Queuing in Europe for free tomorrow (Pacific time zone 24.00)!
