“Comments: First night in Chicago on Bruce Springsteen’s “Tunnel of Love” tour. This recording was made by a legendary local taper (he also taped the outstanding Chicago 8/9/85, Lincoln and Kansas City ’84 shows, and many others) and was seeded on DaD a few months ago. Since that version had some skips in it, and since I think this sounds a shade better, I thought it would be worth seeding.” – ademotte
