– D3 Tracks 07-12 from October 25, 1980, Memorial Coliseum, Portland, OR. (‘The Mountain Show’, Ev2)
* D1Track02: short skip @ 0:08
** D3Track01: short skip @ 0:05
Another Mark Persic master recording – this show was taped by ‘bobb’/’markp’, huge thanks to both of you – amazing as usual.
– This show was right after the Portland (The Mountain Show, Ev2) show, and Springsteen makes some references to “the mountain” (St. Helens) during the show.
– ‘The River’ has the piano intro, but ‘Badlands’ doesn’t.
– The only different song from the Portland show is ‘Stolen Car’ which was added to set this night (and that show had one-off ‘Old Smokey’).

L’apertura del concerto con Born to Run doveva essere una cosa devastante dal vivo. Cosa ne pensate?
