We Don’t Play This One Much: Rare Originals 1999-2009

La compilation a marchio Flynn è composta da 6 bootleg audio con tutte le rarità suonate da Bruce Springsteen e la E-Street Band dal 1999 al 2009.

La raccolta include quindi i seguenti quattro tour:

  • Reunion
  • The Rising
  • Magic
  • Working On A Dream
Sono stati esclusi i tour di Devils & Dust (2005) e quello con la Seeger Sessions Band (2006).
Qualche nota dai realizzatori di questa raccolta bootleg:
There are many things to love about the ten years of touring Bruce and the band did since reuniting on stage in 1999, but high on the list is the staggering amount of material assailed. By the end of the WOAD tour, Springsteen had tackled some 280 songs, a number boosted considerably by the sign requests of the last two tours, especially given how many of those yielded one-off covers.
But even more compelling than live versions of other peoples songs are airings of little-performed material from Bruce ís own canon. It ís easy to forget that the 1999 tour was mounted in support of Tracks and rarities from the box did work their way into setlists to varying degrees, especially early on when such uber obscurities as  Car Wash î and ìBrothers Under the Bridgesî received their first and, to date, last airings.
Fast-forward to the end of the 2009 WOAD tour in Buffalo, and again Bruce pulls out first/only readings of several songs including the stunning River outtake (included on Tracks) ìRestless Nights.î Steve might have been right all these years year, indeed.
For the hardcores, folks who saw dozens of shows over the last 12 years, these uncommon performances provided some of the greatest moments we experienced in those arenas. The genuine surprise delivered by a song you never thought you’d ever hear or hear again is one of the sublime pleasures of being a fan of an artist who has both an enormous back catalog and who isn’t afraid to mix up his set lists to revisit it. For us, there’s nothing more exciting than when Bruce steps to the microphone and says something to the effect of, ìWe don’t play this one much…

Those words provide the title to our comprehensive 6-CD anthology. “We Don’t Play This One Much” gathers ten years of rarities from the once-played to the infrequently-played, all in one place. This set is all about the songs you haven’t heard that often and haven’t grown tired of, culled to create a listening experience that should be quite refreshing to anyone who has listened primarily to complete shows from any of the four tours.
You may wonder where we drew the line. The answer is somewhere around a dozen performances, any more than that and the song didn’t feel so rare any more, with just a couple of exceptions that felt like they would have been conspicuous by their absence given the other material included (like ìCode of Silence.î)  We’ve also included songs performed slightly more but new to the Springsteen live canon over the course of the decade.

“Welcome back, CC! The band’s return to their fall schedule, with Clarence Clemons back in action only a week after surgery, is Cincinnati’s first general admission show in nearly 23 years. It’s also notable for an ongoing boycott effort in Cincy– not by those opposing the G.A. plan, but by civil rights activists protesting police brutality.
Springsteen opens with “American Skin” for the first time. Also in the set: a full-band “Does This Bus Stop,”
and, by request from a sign-holder, “I’m a Rocker.”” – backstreets



All’ epoca del concerto di Springsteen a Bologna il 18 ottobre 2002 (7 anni fa) i bootleg si scambiavano ancora in WHS, VCD e SVCD.
Poi sono arrivati i bootleg in DVD e i primi multi-camera come questo realizzato dal solito FedeUd.
