2023/4 Albums Thing 335 - Bruce Springsteen & The E-Street Band “Live: Estadio River Plate, Buenos Aeries, Argentina 15 Oct 1988"

Posted on


An album of questionable provenance (I bought it in Home Bargains !) that presents part of Springsteen and the E Street Bands set at the final show of the Amnesty International Human Rights Now tour.

Before the E Street Band set started Springsteen joined Sting for a version of “Every Breath You Take”. At the close of their set Bruce and the E Street Band performed Bob Marley’s “Get Up Stand Up”. Of course none of that interesting stuff is included on this record !

What you do get is 6 songs from “Born In The USA”, “The River” and covers of Edwin Starr’s “War” and Bob Dylan’s “Chimes Of Freedom” (along with Sting, Peter Gabriel, Youssou N'Dour & Tracy Chapman) and for some reason none of it in the order it was actually played on the night. The most disturbing thing about this recording is that “The River” appears to feature a verse sung by Sting…oh the horror ! A nice historical document with some interesting bits missing.
