To say that Springsteen's live shows with the E Street Band were legendary is the height of understatement. On a good night, the set might extend to three and four hours of exhilarating, pulse-pounding rock & roll. How best to capture that on CD? Or was it possible at all? As it turns out, Live 1975-1985 comes as close to the experience as possible. Culling material from various tours, with settings ranging from small rooms to stadiums, the three-CD set emphatically displays Springsteen's charisma as a bandleader and storyteller and makes plain the sheer power of the E Street Band. Some of the many highlights here include covers of Edwin Starr's "War", Tom Waits's "Jersey Girl" and Woody Guthrie's "This Land Is Your Land" and rare versions of originals such as "Because the Night", "Fire" and "Seeds". And relax--all the hits are here as well. If you never saw Springsteen and the E Streeters back then, you might still get your chance. But this set chronicles a special time in the life of a special performer. --Daniel Durchholz

Born In The USA is far more relentless in concert than the recorded version, his voice is louder, the drums are truer and you get carried away with the crowd and imagine what it must of been like watching that. Bruce also plays This Land Is Your Land and No Surrender with his usual acoustic and harmonica combination. His voice sounds stronger, he believes what he is singing and you actually get into the words a little better.Read more ›
Live 75-85 captues The Boss at his absolute best, and on the later shows, at the peak of his commercial appeal. Thunder Road remains a modern classic, but to hear it live leaves you breathless. Cover versions are here and Bruce adds his own twist, with venom on the anthemic "War" and with subtlety on Tom Waits beautiful, under-rated "Jersey Girl".
When Bruce sings "We bursted outta class, had to get away from those fools,/ we learned more from a 3 minute record than we ever did in school" on a superbly re-arranged "No Surrender", you believe every last syllable!
Springsteen for me, is the quintessential American songwriter, knowing just how to tap into the feelings of everyday blue-collar America (and you and I)and carry you along at a breathtaking pace, taking you to highs and lows and leaving you with a feeling of sheer exaltation. Seeing Springsteen live in these heady days was not a concert, it was a religious experience, with the Rev. Bruce earnestly preaching to his captive flock.
The man exudes charisma from every pore on his body, and on stage he makes the most of it. This record compiled personally from 10 years on the road is the closest you will ever get to being there.
With a relatively quiet 90's, commercially speaking, and the creative well seeming to dry a little, The Boss bounced back withy his post-9/11 album "The Rising" which sees a return to the flag waving, standard bearing form shown on Live 75-85, but never again will he be as good as this. Truly a remakable record and a must for every serious music fan,
