Columbia C5X 40558 (1986) Original US Pressing 5 LP set

is a live album by Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band. This 5 LP set consists of 40 tracks recorded at various concerts between 1975 and 1985. Springsteen's long-awaited and highly-anticipated live album generated advance orders of more than 1.5 million copies, making it the largest dollar-volume pre-order in the history of the record business at the time. Record stores around the country found fans waiting in line on Monday morning before opening and one New York store reportedly sold the album right off the back of the delivery truck. The album debuted at #1 on the Billboard album chart, a rare occurrence that hadn't happened in ten years since Stevie Wonder's in 1976. It also became the first five-record set to reach the top 10 and the first to sell over a million copies. Two singles were released from the box set: "War" (a cover of the 1970 Edwin Starr hit), which was a #8 success on the U.S. pop singles chart, and "Fire" (a Springsteen song that was a top 10 hit for The Pointer Sisters in 1979), which only reached #46 on the Billboard charts, breaking Springsteen's string of eight consecutive Top 10 singles. The music video for "War" was taken from the concert where it was recorded, while the video for "Fire" was from a completely unrelated 1986 acoustic performance at a Bridge School Benefit concert. A third video, for "Born to Run", was also released, which showed a melange of clips from the band's 1984–85 Born in the U.S.A. Tour. Not surprising, given Springsteen's reputation as a live performer and the sheer scope of the 40-song set, most reviews were overwhelmingly positive. There were, however, a few critics that felt the album could have been better, citing the omission of several concert highlights such as Springsteen's live rendition of "Prove It All Night" and his rousing cover of John Fogerty's "Who'll Stop the Rain", among others. Another complaint was that some of his many unreleased songs such as "The Fever" were ignored in favor of recent album tracks like "Darlington County". (Two longer selections that did not make the cut – "Incident on 57th Street", recorded at Nassau Coliseum in December of 1980, and "For You", taken from the July 1978 Roxy show – materialized on B-sides from the album's singles, limited releases, and a Japanese CD single and vinyl release called Live Collection.) is the second-best-selling live album in U.S. history based on RIAA certification. It has been certified by the RIAA for 13x platinum, trailing only Garth Brooks' . This figure reflects the RIAA practice of counting each disc in a multi-disc set as a separate unit sold; the actual number of copies sold is instead slightly over 4 million. Based on albums sold, also trails Peter Frampton's (6 million) and Bob Seger & the Silver Bullet Band's (5 million) among best-selling live albums. The box set's sales performance attracted considerable media attention at the time, first for setting records during the 1986 holiday shopping period, then later for fizzling out in sales in early 1987, leaving many retailers overstocked. allmusic 4.5/5 stars Robert Christgau A-

This set will take you a long time to download… but not nearly as long as it took me to rip and process it!

I've been to a lot of Springsteen concerts over the past 40 years and this over 3 and a half hour set is of a similar length as his shows. Not many artists can capture the attention of thousands of fans for that long at a time. The first time that I went to one of his concerts, I didn't know anything about him. A friend had called and commanded that this was a show NOT TO BE MISSED. So we dutifully drove from Arlington to Dallas to a small nightclub to see this unknown guy named Bruce Springsteen. Only about 20 other people were brave enough to try out his music that night. Oh, but what a show it was. After that, I went to see him every time he came through the area for the next 20 years, including his one-man concert at a bowling alley for the Nebraska tour.

The files marked "2496" are high resolution 24-bit/96 kHz audio for DVD, etc
The files marked "1644" are redbook 16-bit/44.1 kHz format, suitable for CD burning


The files are interchangeable!!!

Due to the huge size of the 24/96 files, I have split it into 3 folders (LPs 1 and 2, LPs 3 and 4, LP 5 plus artwork).
I recommend that you re-combine all the 24/96 files into one common folder.
