Notes:

Brucebase entry for this concert: 2016-01-16 – CONSOL ENERGY CENTER, PITTSBURGH, PA

– “Rebel Rebel” is a song by David Bowie, released in 1974 as a single and on the album Diamond Dogs. Cited as his most-covered track, it was effectively Bowie’s farewell to the glam rock movement that he had helped pioneer. More info

Bruce Springsteen – Prove It All Night 2012-08-15 Fenway Park, Boston, MA

Bruce Springsteen – Prove It All Night ’78  (3cam mix + dubbed audio) 2012-08-15 Fenway Park, Boston, MA

Bruce Springsteen 2012-08-15 Prove It All Night  (3cam mix + dubbed audio) uploaded to the Brucetapes YouTube account:

Bruce Springsteen – Prove It All Night with ’78 intro (Live):

I don’t how many times Bruce has played this gem on this tour so far, but this is clearly the best one yet. Intro is much longer than on the previous concerts, and his guitar playing is getting better and better as the tour goes on. Before this tour I was 100% sure that we won’t ever hear the ’78 intro version ever again. Hearing this live in Helsinki was one of my summer highlights. Maybe one day I will edit the Helsinki version too…

Info about the Prove It All Night video:

3 videos was used to make this video. I had stabilize each video twice to get them watchable. Each time you stabilize a video it will zoom in a bit. This means you’re gonna lose some quality with every stabilization. I know youtube has it’s own algorithm, but it’s pretty bad compared to what vReveal 2 can offer. It took about 10 hours to render all the videos twice + make the final render mix.

Video was once again dubbed with great audience recording by Bakerstuff. This time I used bit of EQ to make that guitar intro “pop” bit more.

Hope you like the results!

Bruce Springsteen – Knock On Wood (2012-08-15 Fenway Park)

Bruce Springsteen Knock On Wood (dubbed audio) 2012-08-15 Fenway Park, Boston, MA

Bruce Springsteen 2012-08-15 Knock On Wood (with dubbed audio) uploaded to the Brucetapes YouTube account:

Bruce Springsteen – Knock On Wood (Live):

Knock On Wood was a true rarity on Fenway night 2. Knock On Wood has been only played once by Bruce Springsteen & E Street Band back in 1976!

From Wikipedia:
“Knock on Wood” is a hit 1966 song written by Eddie Floyd and Steve Cropper and originally performed by Eddie Floyd. The Eddie Floyd version peaked at number twenty-eight on the Hot 100, and spent one week at number one on the soul singles.

The song has been frequently covered, first by Otis Redding and Carla Thomas, and with charting singles by David Bowie and Amii Stewart.”

Info about the video:

I didn’t do much to the video. Only stabilized with vReveal software, and then dubbed the video on  Sony Movie Studio 10 HD platinum (looks like there is version 12 available already.) with a great audience recording by Bakerstuff.

Video: Bruce Springsteen 2012-07-28 – Lost In The Flood (live)

Video: Bruce Springsteen 2012-07-28 – Lost In The Flood – Live from Ullevi, Gothenburg, Sweden

Bruce Springsteen 2012-07-28 “Lost in the Flood” video uploaded to the Brucetapes YouTube account:

Bruce Springsteen – Lost In The Flood (Live):


 

I can’t believe that Lost In The Flood has been played on once at this tour. Such a powerful song, and it fits to the Wrecking Ball Tour theme nicely. My favorite version of Lost In The Flood can be found from Born To Run 30th anniversary box (the Hammersmith Odeon, London ’75 DVD ).

See the Ullevi concert special

Info about the video:

Massive audio work on this one. This is a 4 audience source matrix. Meaning that the four different audio sources was mixed together! There are currently two different fan “bootleg” tapes from this show circulating. I used both of them with this video, and also audio from the original videos are mixed in too!

If you have listened any of the audio sources before, you can tell that they all have their own flaws. It must have been windy at the Ullevi stadium as the vocals goes from one channel into another. With 4 sources I was able to balance the sound a bit. It might not be 100% accurate mix, as perfect timing for each source is pretty hard to come by. Here’s one hoping for the Crystal Cat release. Great show like this deserves a better sounding bootleg.

Original videos have been taken from YouTube users  and  . Videos was once again stabilized with the vReveal video editing software (Version 2, which is sadly no longer available. V3 is crappy). I used some noise reduction with the videos, and video might be bit soft because of that (also thanks to 2x youtube encoding).

Video was dubbed with the audio sources recorded by mortenkofoed and ??? and then remixed together in the Reaper (the best audio editing software). Videos and audio track combined with the Sony Movie Studio 10 HD Suite.
