Real Springsteen

by iabrams@mindspring.com on 4/9/2007

Unlike the "Live" album, this one is about the music, not the persaonlity. I love that one too; but Hammersmith helps me to appreciate some of the early songs, like Kitty's Back and Hard to be a Saint in the City, that I always found hard to get into. The amazing part musically is Roy Bittan's keyboard, which is given much greater reign live than on the studio records. Some of the songs have a jazz-like ensemble feel to them. There are some problems with the sound, squawks and unevennesses, maybe even some blank spots edited out--can't be sure. But it's live and it's almost 30 years old. To really know Springsteen you have to hear this album.

High energy, well produced

by Nina on 5/14/2008

This is great music and I'm planning to buy multiple copies for friends. The 2-CD set has THE BEST version of Thunder Road I've ever heard, with a beautiful piano intro. I read the liner notes with Bruce's explanation of the 26-year delay between concert and album release, but it still surprises me. He remains one of the best musicians ever, and does NJ proud.

Product Overview

Personnel: Bruce Springsteen (vocals, guitar); Roy Bittan (vocals, piano); Clarence Clemons (saxophone, percussion); Danny Federici (keyboards); Garry Tallent (bass guitar); Max Weinberg (drums). Audio Mixer: Bob Clearmountain. Liner Note Author: Bruce Springsteen. Recording information: Hammersmith Odeon, London, England (1975). Editor: Thom Zimny. This excellent two-disc concert set captures Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band performing in London for the first time in 1975. Recorded just after the release of BORN TO RUN--which would ensure the Boss's place on the rock-&-roll map for all eternity--the HAMMERSMITH ODEON concert represents a young band bursting with ambition, attitude, and energy, and ripping through a set with the hunger that has rightfully conferred legendary status upon Springsteen concerts. From the spare opening version of "Thunder Road" to the rollicking "Rosalita (Come Out Tonight)," Bruce is in fine form here, and his band--shifting between soulful R&B, jazzy explorations, and spit-fire rock--plays like a monster. In fact, there is a ragged leanness to the band's style that would begin to ebb some years later, and while Springsteen's backing ensembles have remained powerful and ferocious up into the 2000s, there is something pure and beautiful about this particular group. As such, it is a genuine must-have for any rock-&-roll fan.
