Nah, I want the sax. The best part about Jungleland is the sax solo. What happened to the sax player after that album? I listened to Darkness on the Edge of Town and I thought it was OK, but too much hard rock and not enough sax and big chorus sing alongs like on Born to Run. Born to Run gives me goosebumps and I didn't really get that from Darkness or The Wild or Nebraska.
Can't believe I forgot this sax stuff from Clarence.

Paradise by the C was the only instrumental piece the E Street Band played - 3 times in 1975, about 55 times in 1978 tour, and then a dozen times in the 1988 European Tour.

Don't know which 1978 show this is from.

From a New York entertainment industry site that has ranked 340 songs, updating their 2016 list to now include songs from Western Stars those from Letter to You.


119. “Paradise by the ‘C’,” The Ties That Bind. Star time! “Paradise” is Springsteen’s only all-instrumental composition, and it exists solely to put the spotlight on the Big Man. (Don’t he look great? He lost a lot of weight.) For a long time, you only knew about this song if you were there back in the day, or you bought the Live 1975–1985 box set. (Its inclusion was one of the things they got right with that release.) It was played frequently on the ‘78 tour and in Europe in ‘88, but hasn’t surfaced since. For reasons beyond anyone’s understanding, a studio version was included in the The Ties That Bind box set, even though it is highly unlikely the song was actually recorded during that period. It was probably thrown on just because Bruce misses Clarence.

Found this video from some guy called the professor of rock. He has almost 300 videos analyzing artists songs and albums.

It's his take on Tunnel of Love, the album generally in the first half and as a song in the second half. Sounds like having gone thru a divorce like Bruce did, he relates very closely to the song. Gotta admit not having seen the film clip that many times over the years I forgot about Bruce using the carnival rides at the Jersey shore as a metaphor for marriage.

  • Barack Obama and Bruce Springsteen have launched a podcast called “Renegades: Born in the USA” on Spotify.
  • The series will span eight episodes, two of which were released Monday on the streaming platform.
  • It’s the second series to come out of Spotify’s 2019 deal with the former first family’s production company, Higher Ground.

Former president Barack Obama and legendary rock musician Bruce Springsteen have launched a podcast on Spotify.

Renegades: Born in the USA” will span eight episodes, two of which were released Monday on the streaming platform. Spotify said the pair, who first met in 2008, will discuss race, fatherhood, marriage and the future of America.

“On the surface, Bruce and I don’t have a lot in common. But over the years, what we’ve found is that we’ve got a shared sensibility. About work, about family and about America,” Obama said in the first episode of the podcast. “In our own ways, Bruce and I have been on parallel journeys trying to understand this country that’s given us both so much. Trying to chronicle the stories of its people. Looking for a way to connect our own individual searches for meaning and truth and community with the larger story of America.”

Listened to both eps this morning. Very good.

Obama's voice is so smooth and soothing.
