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!

August 9: Bruce Springsteen played Agora Theatre and Ballroom in 1978 (audio)

Bruce-springsteen-agora-1978jpg-892x697

I consider Bruce’s Darkness Tour of 78 to be one of the greatest “tours” ever….

This concert is one of the best from the tour I’ve heard.. and Yes, it helps that it was broadcasted on the famous rock station: WMMS-FM

Springsteen agora 1978

One of the reasons the 1978 Tour is so well-remembered, and often viewed as the peak of Springsteen and the E Street Band in concert, is that several complete shows were broadcast live on radio stations.

Legendary Concert: Van Morrison @ Fillmore West, San Francisco – April 26th 1970

A concert to rank with the greatest by anyone..
-Brian Hinton (Celtic Crossroads: The Art of Van Morrison)

Rock ‘n’ roll comes in many different shapes and sizes, and on the night of April 26, 1970, it came to the Fillmore West in the form of a barrel-chested Irishman in a silk shirt and flares.
