    Last night at MSG in NYC Bruce played 'Meeting Across the River' into 'Jungleland'. Those of us who are fans, know how special this is. Enjoy.




    Here is his mom Adele dancing to 'Ramrod'. So cute!

    Born in the USA is the quintessential song of American life in the mid-late 20th century.

    I use to really like B.S when i was in my very early 20s, was with my best friend in her bedroom and we were listenning at him all the time, then i kind of "forgotten him" and 20 years later i realise how much this guy was and still is incredible..and when i feel a bit down, adore watching him singing "you never can tell"

    Darkness On The Edge Of Town is still my favorite Bruce album.

    And it wasn't until just recently that I checked out The River on iTunes that I realized just how many good songs are on that album. You can easily discard half the material on that double album and still have an outstanding single album (and maybe, song-for-song, even better than Darkenss...):

    Side 1
    The River
    Fade Away
    Hungry Heart
    Sherry Darling
    The Ties That Bind

    Side 2
    Ramrod
    Out In The Street
    Two Hearts
    I'm A Rocker
    Cadillac Ranch

    Born In The U.S.A. has lost a bit of its luster with me, but it's still a classic.

    I like a few select tracks of his from the 80's and 90's, but Darkness On The Edge Of Town, The River, Born In The U.S.A. and Born To Run are his best albums overall (imo).

    I own all of his albums except for the last one "high hopes" which just never cut it for me, that said I do need it to keep my collection intact and when I see it in a discount bin some day I will get it...

    only two of his albums I don't like overall and they are the "lucky town" "human touch" duo from the early 1990s, there are good tracks on them but too much filler IMO, he should have, IMO, just released one album containing tracks from both...

    his best albums (or more to the point my favourites...),
    impossible to say, sometimes I like the narrative of "the ghost of tom goad", other times the sparseness of "Nebraska" etc etc...
    overall I think he has been one of the most consistently good artists over the last 50 years.
