September 19: Bruce Springsteen @ Capitol Theatre, Passaic NJ, 1978 – Footage With Sound Upgrade

The wait is finally over. Passaic 9/19/78 arrives in its glorious entirety, newly remixed by Jon Altschiler from multi-track, Plangent Processed master tapes. It offers a fresh take on the familiar broadcast version, crackling with energy and putting Bruce and the band so close you might reach out and try to touch the Big Man’s sax. It’s not a first-row seat; it is a first-row seat directly in front of the PA speakers.
-Erik Flannigan (nugs.net)

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 favourite. Now it has finally been released on live.brucespringsteen.net and the b&w footage on youtube with OK/good sound is being replaced (by fans) with new the new stellar sound.

Absolutely mind blowing.

September 15: Bob Dylan @ Dortmund, West Germany 1987 – Wonderful Concert

..spectacular from start to finish.. Bob Dylan feels good about himself and his work, this night in Dortmund. You can hear it in his voice. It’s a unique, very wonderful Bob Dylan voice, special to this show. His presence this time is not a matter of being one with the protagonists of the songs or the persons being sung to. It’s a matter of his enthusiasm for the act of
singing, and for each of these songs that he gets to sing. An a subtle but measurable sense, this “Tangled Up in Blue” vocal is not like any other rendition.
~Paul Williams (Bob Dylan: Performing Artist Volume 3: Mind Out Of Time 1986 And Beyond)

September 12: Bob Dylan @ Great Woods Performing Arts Center, Mansfield, Massachusetts in 1993

..nothing short of amazing. The performance is dead-on, and the vocals are way up front in your face. The recording is perfect digital quality right off of the soundboard. The show itself is among the best of the tour, and the song line-up is a taper’s dream..
~bobsboots.com

..in near  perfect quality and showcasing a focused, “biting” Dylan peformance  that simply sizzles. The opening number sets the table nicely, with a rough and tumble vocal and lengthy harp fills that indicate Bob is in a lively mood on this night. The line recording catches every little nuance and inflection with startling clarity.

September 3: Bob Dylan @ Hollywood Bowl Los Angeles 1965

bob dylan hollywood 1965

With the same band and repertoire as at Forest Hills, Dylan plays a major west coast show. However, this time far more of the audience are enthusiastic about the show, and Dylan treats them to an encore. Afrer the show, he attends a Hollywood-style party, along with 300 other guests, at which he meets a longtime idol, Marlon Brando.
~Clinton Heylin (Bob Dylan: A Life in Stolen Moments Day by Day 1941-1995)

…The historical value of these long-lost and much-bootlegged tapes cannot be overstated, however. Alternative Edge’s Hollywood Bowl 1965 boasts the same source limitations as rival releases and features the show in its entirety (minus the finale of “Mr. Tambourine,” missing from all known recordings), making it an essential addition to any serious Dylan enthusiast’s collection.
