FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER this previously uncirculated treasure is now being shared with Bruce Springsteen fans worldwide! The Bottom Line Shows are legendary and for those wondering if a recording of the August 13th, 1975 show would ever surface, the wait is finally over! For a fan who was there in those early days, Mr Anonymous can tell you what it was like:

“The story of Bruce’s early days has been documented many times, most recently in the current New Yorker magazine. As described therein, Bruce’s five night, ten show stint at The Bottom Line was crucial to launching his third album, Born to Run. Many executives at Columbia Records were frustrated with Bruce’s lack of commercial success and Born to Run was likely his last chance with the label. Columbia reportedly bought a quarter of the 500 seats for each show to distribute among music industry people to help spread the word. Even so, tickets did not sell out immediately and a week after going on sale they were available for any of the shows. That all ended when the public heard WNEW’s broadcast of show number 5. The next two nights, fans were lined up around the corner with the hope of getting a standing room spot at the bar to hear the new phenom.

This is the first recording of one of the late shows to surface. It is the first night and this tape captures all of the ambiance of this intimate club. You can hear each breath and whisper from Bruce while dishes and glasses are shuffled on the tables. Bruce seems to just appear behind the piano and gets a single reaction from the crowd as he opens solo with For You. It is evident how he captures the crowd more and more with each song. By the time he hits the 20 minute versions of Kitty’s Back and New York City Serenade, he has them in his hands.”

“Did I just dream I played drums for the E Street Band?”

Posted by Springster on Jul 23, 2012 8:13 pm:

“I’d just like to apologise for trying to drum on ‘Dancingin the Dark’ . What a hilarious twist of fate tonight in Bergen. My sign said ‘Please can I dance with Max and Bruce can you play the drums’! Next thing I know I was sucked up into the E Street world, from then on it was a blur of a dream. I thought I was going to dance next to Max, then he’s handing me his sticks……….oh god, what the hell is happening……..I can’t turn Max down and Bruce is dancing, I better wing it………then all I could see was Gary looking at me and smiling, better try and play! (I’m a guitarist, not a drummer!!) The best part was seeing all the crowd’s faces, the energy from you all was amazing. It was truly a dream! I never got to thank Max for his misunderstanding and letting me play drums with the E Street Band, and thank you Bruce for a once in a life time experience! πŸ™‚ ”
