March 24 – Monday – Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band – Live/1975-85 – Pt. 3

Side five started with “Badlands” then “Because the Night.” I recognized “Candy’s Room” from the clapping that preceded the music. Funny, because that’s the song that I didn’t recognize when we played name that tune with Scott Muni. I’ll never blow free tickets because of that song again.

The third time I saw Bruce in Concert it was at the Meadowlands Arena in the summer of 1981. I got tickets all on my own and landed 11th row stage right. The seats were graduated, we didn’t have to stand on our chairs this time and we had a great side view. I was the only one who needed to use my binoculars, which was a good thing as I had to scold the guy from Boston at the last concert for passing MY binoculars to the girl next to him. The flirting didn’t bother me, just don’t do it with my binoculars that if you are not using you should pass back to me. Am I right? He and a couple that were friends of mine who had never seen Bruce in concert before were my companions that evening. A good time was had by all.

Side six of the live record set is the Nebraska/Woody Guthrie side, so it was a little draggy. But you know what they say – so and so is such a good actor, he can read the phone book and make it sound good? Bruce can do anything live and make it enjoyable, and the phone book has always served us well.
