Video: Bruce Springsteen 2012-07-31 Higher and Higher – Helsinki, Finland

Bruce Springsteen 2012-07-31 – (Your Love Keeps Lifting Me) Higher and Higher – Olympiastadion, Helsinki, Finland

Bruce Springsteen 2012-07-31 Higher and Higher video uploaded to the Brucetapes YouTube account:

Bruce Springsteen – (Your Love Keeps Lifting Me) Higher and Higher (Live):

Another great Wrecking Ball tour debut. Bruce keep teasing the audience with his “look at me. I’m not tired at all dance”. Helsinki gig was close to 4 hour mark at this point. Great energy. It starts little shaky, as Bruce wasn’t happy with the tempo. Oh, and Jon Landau plays guitar on this one (like there isn’t enough guitars on stage already).

“(Your Love Keeps Lifting Me) Higher and Higher” is a R&B song originally performed by Jackie Wilson in 1967 and covered by Rita Coolidge in 1977.” – Wikipedia.

See Brucebase listing for all the known Higher and Higher performances.

Info about the video:

Two video sources and two audio sources was used to make this video. Original videos taken from YouTube users Techkie (intro) and ManWithNoName64. Videos once again stabilized with the vReveal video editing software. Video was dubbed with the audio sources recorded by Corenol and Tootai and then remixed together in Reaper (the best audio editing software). Videos and audio track combined with the Sony Movie Studio 10 HD Suite.

I could have done a bit better job with the audio & video to be honest, but I’m trying to do my best to remove the perfectionist inside of me.

Video: Techkie (intro) and ManWithNoName64
Audio: Olympus LS-11 + MM-MCSM-4 microphones (Corenol Recording) + Zoom H2 outer mics (Tootai recording)

Software used to make this video: Sony Movie Studio 10 HD Suite (Video) + vReveal 2 (Video) + Reaper 4.25 (Audio)

and YES, I’m planning to find some rarities from the other Wrecking Ball tour dates too and dub them with a better audio source(s). Let me know your suggestions!

New video uploaded today to the Brucetapes YouTube account:

Bruce Springsteen – Detroit Medley (Live):


This is the first time that Detroit Medley was performed on the Wrecking Ball tour. Great rocker medley that should be performed much more often. :)

“Detroit Medley is a medley of various songs – including “Devil With The Blue Dress”, “Good Golly Miss Molly”, “C.C. Rider”, “Jenny Jenny”.” – Brucebase.

Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band first time performed “Detroit Medley” the during Born To Run tour. See the performance history of this song.

Bruce Springsteen – Light Of Day (2012 Helsinki Live – 3 audio source mix)

Bruce Springsteen 2012-07-31 – Light Of Day Olympiastadion, Helsinki, Finland

I know I promised to update those previous Wrecking Ball tour specials, but I really wanted to edit the Light Of Day performance from the Helsinki gig first. Anyways…Here it is!:

Bruce Springsteen – Light Of Day (Live):


“Light Of Day” has always been one the better unreleased Bruce Springsteen songs. I know that the live versions have been released on two official releases (MTV Unplugged: In Concert (1992 and Live in New York City (2001)), but the studio version (from the Born In The USA sessions) still remains unreleased. Maybe the Bruce & Co will include it on “Tracks 2” box?

Info about the video:

Mixed from three different audio sources. Second source kicks in after the 1-2-3 countdown, and third source at 0:32. 3rd source is recorded with Nokia PureView 808. I first made a two source mix, but the PureView clip had so nice bass that I had to add it too (You’ll hear the difference when it kicks in).

I know that the video might be bit too bass heavy, because the 3rd audio source was added within final stages on Sony Movie Studio 10 HD video editor (Other tracks were mixed with Reaper). I also used only headphones when making the mix.

Audio: “Original video”, “Olympus LS-11 + MM-MCSM-4 microphones”, and Nokia 808 Pureview

Software used: Sony Movie Studio 10 HD Suite (Video) + vReveal 2 (Video) + Reaper 4.25 (Audio)
