The last night of a three-show Windy City stand captures Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band playing with the kind of purpose and passion that made the Reunion tour so memorable. Chicago ’99 balances tour staples like “Murder Incorporated,” “Youngstown” and “If I Should Fall Behind” with rarer outings for “Adam Raised A Cain,” “Independence Day” and “She’s the One,” plus true surprises “Take ‘Em As They Come,” “Janey, Don’t You Lose Heart” and a resplendent “New York City Serenade.”

Blood Brothers is a five-song EP by Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band, released in 1996. The EP was originally released along with a film, also titled Blood Brothers, which documented the 1995 temporary reuniting of Springsteen with the band to record extra tracks for his Greatest Hits release of that year.

Four of the five songs on the EP were written and recorded in 1995 during the band’s Greatest Hits sessions while “Murder Incorporated” was recorded live in February 1995. The 1995 sessions marked the first time since 1984 that Springsteen and the entire E Street Band recorded together. Part of the band had worked on Springsteen’s 1987 album, Tunnel of Love before Springsteen split from the E Street Band in 1989.

The title track was also released on the Greatest Hits album in an acoustic version. The studio version of “Murder Incorporated” can also be found on Greatest Hits along with the original version of “Secret Garden” minus strings. The live version of “Murder Incorporated” featured here is the same version used in the “Murder Incorporated” music video” “High Hopes” and “Without You” were featured on another single, which was rare and hard to find

The first official live recording from Europe ’81 is a revelatory chapter in Springsteen’s touring history. London provides a window into this extraordinary stretch of the River tour that saw Bruce exploring new musical directions through songs like “Follow That Dream” and “Johnny Bye Bye.” On a crusade to convert first-time audiences across the continent, Springsteen and the E Street Band never played better, pouring out potent versions of River material and sublime covers including “Jolé Blon,” CCR’s “Who’ll Stop The Rain” and Elvis’ “Can’t Help Falling In Love.”

The final weeks of the Working On A Dream tour saw Springsteen return to NYC for special full-album shows including the first complete performance of The River. The result was a remarkable, in-the-moment experience for band and audience, as rarely played songs like “Crush On You,” “Stolen Car,” “Wreck On The Highway” “Fade Away,” “I Wanna Marry You” and “The Price You Pay” roared back to life, fulfilling fan desires and planting the seeds for 2016’s River revisited tour.

This memorable homecoming stop on the Tom Joad tour sees Springsteen return to Freehold and his parochial school, St. Rose of Lima. Joined by special guests Patti Scialfa and Soozie Tyrell, Bruce reminisces and tears up the set list for nine tour debuts, including “The River,” “Two Hearts” “Racing in the Street,” a rare “When You’re Alone” and the only tour performances of “Open All Night,” “Used Cars” and “My Hometown.” The show wraps with “Freehold,” an uproarious paean penned for the occasion.

The last U.S. tour stop of 2007 would prove to be Danny Federici’s final show as a full-time member of the E Street Band. Boston ’07 is a fitting farewell to Phantom Dan and catches Bruce and the band firing on all cylinders at the height of the Magic tour. Rich with core album tracks including “Radio Nowhere,” “Gypsy Biker,” “Livin’ In The Future” and “Girls In Their Summer Clothes,” Boston also features the tour debuts of “This Hard Land” and “Tenth Avenue Freeze-Out” with Peter Wolf.

The premise was simple. Bruce Springsteen invites a dozen or so New York City musicians–packing banjos, fiddles, accordions and the like–to his New Jersey farmhouse for a three-day hootenanny, and tape is rolling. The results are sublime, his 21st album featuring their versions of songs harvested from Springsteen’s dog-eared LPs by Pete Seeger. Not all written by Seeger, the songs are how the American folk icon interpreted them, and these organic recordings, with no rehearsals or overdubs, pay tribute with the simplicity and spontaneity he intended. It’s not hard to link Springsteen’s dissatisfaction with American politics to the protest song “We Shall Overcome” or even the Irish ballad “Mrs. McGrath,” where he alters the lyrics to read, “I’d rather have my son as he used to be/Than the King of America and his whole navy.” But the beauty of these Seeger Sessions are pieces that underscore the mood of the bandleader, which borders on down-home amusement: the bluegrass outlaw ballad “Jesse James,” the Dylanesque “Pay Me My Money Down” and the euphoric “Jacob’s Ladder,” a gumbo-and-whiskey-fueled romp that could pass for the closing hymn at the Church of Asbury Park. –Scott Holter
