Man I am just hanging out late tonight and listening to some Springsteen shows. This one is from 78. How great are these guys! Love the E street band! Bruce brought it and still does every night. "Down on Jungleland"

One of my favs

Jungleland

The rangers had a homecoming in harlem late last night
And the magic rat drove his sleek machine over the jersey state line
Barefoot girl sitting on the hood of a dodge
Drinking warm beer in the soft summer rain
The rat pulls into town rolls up his pants
Together they take a stab at romance and disappear down flamingo lane

Well the maximum lawman run down flamingo chasing the rat and the barefoot
Girl
And the kids round here look just like shadows always quiet, holding hands
From the churches to the jails tonight all is silence in the world
As we take our stand down in jungleland

The midnight gangs assembled and picked a rendezvous for the night
Theyll meet `neath that giant exxon sign that brings this fair city light
Man theres an opera out on the turnpike
Theres a ballet being fought out in the alley
Until the local cops, cherry tops, rips this holy night
The streets alive as secret debts are paid
Contacts made, they vanished unseen
Kids flash guitars just like switch-blades hustling for the record machine
The hungry and the hunted explode into rocknroll bands
That face off against each other out in the street down in jungleland

In the parking lot the visionaries dress in the latest rage
Inside the backstreet girls are dancing to the records that the d.j. plays
Lonely-hearted lovers struggle in dark corners
Desperate as the night moves on, just a look and a whisper, and theyre gone

Beneath the city two hearts beat
Soul engines running through a night so tender in a bedroom locked
In whispers of soft refusal and then surrender in the tunnels uptown
The rats own dream guns him down as shots echo down them hallways in the
Night
No one watches when the ambulance pulls away
Or as the girl shuts out the bedroom light

Outside the streets on fire in a real death waltz
Between flesh and whats fantasy and the poets down here
Dont write nothing at all, they just stand back and let it all be
And in the quick of the night they reach for their moment
And try to make an honest stand but they wind up wounded, not even dead
Tonight in jungleland

Same here.

Doesnt get much better then this one though...



The screen door slams
Mary's dress waves
Like a vision she dances across the porch
As the radio plays
Roy Orbison singing for the lonely
Hey that's me and I want you only
Don't turn me home again
I just can't face myself alone again
Don't run back inside
darling you know just what I'm here for
So you're scared and you're thinking
That maybe we ain't that young anymore
Show a little faith, there's magic in the night
You ain't a beauty, but hey you're alright
Oh and that's alright with me

You can hide 'neath your covers
And study your pain
Make crosses from your lovers
Throw roses in the rain
Waste your summer praying in vain
For a savior to rise from these streets
Well now I'm no hero
That's understood
All the redemption I can offer, girl
Is beneath this dirty hood
With a chance to make it good somehow
Hey what else can we do now
Except roll down the window
And let the wind blow back your hair
Well the night's busting open
These two lanes will take us anywhere
We got one last chance to make it real
To trade in these wings on some wheels
Climb in back
Heaven's waiting on down the tracks
Oh oh come take my hand
Riding out tonight to case the promised land
Oh oh Thunder Road, oh Thunder Road
oh Thunder Road
Lying out there like a killer in the sun
Hey I know it's late we can make it if we run
Oh Thunder Road, sit tight take hold
Thunder Road

Well I got this guitar
And I learned how to make it talk
And my car's out back
If you're ready to take that long walk
>From your front porch to my front seat
The door's open but the ride it ain't free
And I know you're lonely
For words that I ain't spoken
But tonight we'll be free
All the promises'll be broken
There were ghosts in the eyes
Of all the boys you sent away
They haunt this dusty beach road
In the skeleton frames of burned out Chevrolets

They scream your name at night in the street
Your graduation gown lies in rags at their feet
And in the lonely cool before dawn
You hear their engines roaring on
But when you get to the porch they're gone
On the wind, so Mary climb in
It's a town full of losers
And I'm pulling out of here to win.

I'm not into Bruce like I was when I was in high school. I've just moved on and got into other music. However, the other day driving home from work something made me think of the song Jungle Land. I started singing the lyrics and humming the sax solo. It really got me pumped. I then started thinking about the other songs on Born To Run. Every song on the album rocks (I didn't care for Meeting Across The River but it's still a good song).

Thanks for the posts. I'm going to play Born To Run today and do the best air sax solos in town.

Anyone ever hear his STEEL MILL stuff? Although he never released any albums with the band, there are several nice soundboards and decent audience recordings out there, that give a good picture of what the early days of the NJ Shore music scene were like.

1/18/71 D'Scene Club is a complete soundboard and a great show! Includes a funny story of Mary Louise Watson and her "hail Mary's"

11/27/70 Sunshine Inn, Asbury Park. Another nice soundboard. They were opening for Black Sabbath.

Also some Castilles and Child shows are in circulation, of varying sound quality.

Some of my favorite Bruce shows with the E Street Band are:

07/31/73 My Father's Place, Roslyn Long Island, NY
02/02/75 The Main Point- Great sounding early radio recording
08/15/75 Bottom Line, NYC - Radio broadcast which really got him noticed
10/17/75 Roxy Theatre, LA (Ain't nobody from Billboard tonite)
07/07/78 Roxy Theatre, LA (Portions of this show were used for the Live 75-85 album
08/09/78 Cleveland Agora- Another great radio show from his classic era.

You know it's funny that Springsteen is an artist Warren has never covered as far as I know. I wonder why?

Total style mismatch IMO. Although I think Warren and Mule can probably make any song sound good when they Muleize it.

It's a point but I wouldn't think Radiohead is really a style match either and that one worked out o.k.

Has anyone gotten the new live disc with the Sessions Band? It is 2 cd's and a dvd compiles from 3 shows in Dublin. He did a few of his old songs on it. Atlantic City, Highway Patrolman, If I Sould Fall Behind, and a few others. He completely reworked them to fit with this band. I found them to be interesting, but I am not sure if they hold up. I need to give it a few more listens. Anyone else have this yet?


This dvd show is on right now on NJN, a local NJ public broadcast

You can't see Warren covering Lying Eyes or Hotel California?

Actually, Warren has covered Wasted Time.


Also, Warren did Desperado with the Dead along with numerous other covers, many of which were not great ideas (see Metallica and U2 selections). I agree that Warren should stay away from Bruce's catalog.

I've heard the new Sessions cd and really enjoyed it. I'm sure I'll pick it up soon.

Actually, Warren has covered Bruce. He's done "The Big Muddy" several times acoustic. Awesome, I must say...

Seen Bruce in the old days (75-76?) at the Bottom Line in the Village...small joint, small stage couldn't hold him. He danced off the stage onto tables spilling drinks...food..pretty funny.
His enegy level was incredible and you knew this would be the last time you would see him in a small club...it was on to the big time once he made the cover of the rolling stone.
I miss that joint...so many great, great bands played there.
