Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers Live 12.31.78 New Years Eve concert Santa Monica CA
This concert took place just before Damn The Torpedoes came out, and it is amazing. It was released as a part of The Live Anthology Box Set, and frankly it is the best of the whole set!

September 20: Neil Young at Farm Aid in 2008 (full set, videos)
Farm Aid was started by Willie Nelson, Neil Young and John Mellencamp in 1985 to keep family farmers on the land and has worked since then to make sure everyone has access to good food from family farmers.
Farm Aid has been going on for 31 years, and they have had a lot of great music through the years. Today we’ve picked a very fine set from Neil Young in 2008. Enjoy!

The September 19th 1978 concert at the Capitol Theatre in Passaic, in Bruce’s home state of New Jersey, is arguably Bruce Springsteen’s single greatest live performance. I’ve listened to quite a lot classic Springsteen bootleg concerts over the years.. this remains my favorite.
From brucebase: Radio broadcast, soundboard tapes (all three nights in Passaic were recorded by the Record Plant’s mobile unit, both on multi-track and live-to-two track) and professionally shot in-house black and white video. Probably one of the best all-time concert recordings. Broadcast on WNEW-FM New York and nine other stations in the north-east, including WBCN-FM and WCOZ-FM Boston, WIOQ-FM Philadelphia and WIYY-FM Baltimore. Set includes great versions of “Because The Night” and “Fire,” and also includes what many consider to be the finest examples of “Racing In The Street” and “Thunder Road” ever. Essential. Also, video footage is available. A short live excerpt from this show (Bruce’s band introduction during “Rosalita (Come Out Tonight)”) was officially – and exclusively – released on a promotion-only 7″ flexidisc issued to subscribers of Austrian pop magazine “Rennbahn Express” in June 1981. Thanks to Lost in the Flood for that info. Following the show, WBCN-TV news reporter Felipe Luciano interviews Bruce. Released on CDs:
- ‘Piece De Resistance’ (Great Dane)
- ‘Southside Bruce And The E Street Jukes’ (Seagull)
- ‘USA 1978’ (Arriba)
- ‘Passaic Night’ (Crystal Cat)
- ‘Passaic Night’ (Scorpio)
Also available on CDR ‘The Way It Was – September 19th’; a direct transfer of the radio broadcast and includes all the station breaks, chat and interviews as they were heard on WNEW. Continue reading “September 19: Legendary Concert – Bruce Springsteen @ Capitol Theatre, Passaic NJ 1978”
