Release Notes:

“JEMS is proud to partner once again with Boston taper Steve Hopkins to
release some of the essential Springsteen recordings he made between
1974 and 1977. Steve recorded Springsteen a total of nine times and he
has previously tormented three of those shows from his masters. Late
last year, JEMS released in the first of Steve’s remaining Bruce
masters, Providence, July 20, 1975.

This first of two nights at the Boston Music Hall finds Bruce and the
band newly returned from their brief European tour that included the
now legendary shows at the Hammersmith Odeon in London. Bruce talks
about the trip in some detail during this outstanding show that is
packed with highlights. It opens with the slow “Thunder Road” that
features just Roy and Bruce, and cruises through 17 other songs
including “Lost in the Flood,” the first known recorded performance of
“Santa Claus is Comin’ to Town” and an ultra rare cover of Claudine
Clark’s 1962 hit “Party Lights.” For Hopkins though, the personal
highlight was “the epic, 18-minute ‘Kitty’s Back’ both this night and
the following.” Hard to argue with that.

As it was the first show back in the states after three weeks away,
the crowd is a mix of Boston fans and others who drove up from NY/NJ.
As a result, there’s plenty of audience response and chatter (I
especially like the guy who sarcastically tells the folks in front of
him “congratulations for standing up”), but nothing that detracts from
Hopkins’ excellent and complete recording, save for a short tape flip
inside “The E Street Shuffle.” Samples provided.

We hope you enjoy this second release from the Hopkins masters.”

Bruce Springsteen – Bootleg Torrent Sites

Bruce Springsteen – Best of bootleg torrent sites

If you are here to find the Wrecking Ball torrent. Buy the album from Amazon! or from your local music store, when it comes available…

Any of these sites would have been closed down by the music industry, but they know that if these sites would be closed, bootlegs would go to Ebay etc. Internet killed the whole bootleg business. Pretty much every bootleg torrent site will remove shows by a request. I suggest everyone to support their fav artists by going to concerts and buy their official releases.

Jungleland – Site that only has Bruce Springsteen torrents. Requires registration. Essential site to anyone who wants to get their hands on some Bruce Springsteen bootlegs (FLAC, SHN etc.), Also has a nice selection of videos (DVD)
Dimeadozen – Maybe the largest Bootleg torrent site. There are many Bruce Springsteen bootlegs concerts available. Site requires a registration. Registration is limited to 100 000 people, but non-active accounts gets removed often, to make space to the new users. Dimeadozen has lossless bootlegs only (mostly in Flac format)
The Trader’s Den – Torrent site that has some Bruce Springsteen shows. Requires registration. Also has a nice selection of bootleg videos. Lossless formats and videos (HD/Blu-ray versions are also available for download)
The HungerCity – Nice torrent site with few Bruce Springsteen boots. Great place for Bob Dylan fans. Requires registration. Lossless bootlegs (FLAC)
Zomb Tracker – Another site with few Springsteen boots. Requires registration. Lossless bootlegs (FLAC) Community Bittorrent Tracker – only has taper friendly bands. No Bruce Springsteen bootleg shows. No registration required. Lossless bootlegs (FLAC) – Great way to search bootlegs.

Remember: Never sell any of the shows you download! – See you on the Wrecking Ball 2012 Tour!
