+ Brucebase (05.11.1980): Soundboard recording. One of the finest, most intense shows of the River Tour, perhaps related to the fact that Ronald Reagan had been elected president the day before – which Bruce notes with displeasure during the show. Soundboard tape released on CDs "Heart and Soul" (E Street Records) and "Live In Tempe" (Palace), and most recently remastered on CDR "Love Soul & A Broken Heart" (Ev2). The audio recording of “Badlands” from this show (minus spoken intro) was officially released on the Live 1975-85 box set. This entire show was professionally filmed in its entirety by producer/director Howard Lamden (who also served as Executive Editor). Lamden had previously filmed Pink Floyd and was the Director of Jackson Browne’s early '80s Downtown documentary. Unfortunately the film of this show remains in Springsteen’s vault and is not circulating among collectors. It is likely that the very brief snippets of River Tour pro-shot performance footage seen in the promotional ‘10 Years Burning Down The Road’ advertisement for the Live 1975-85 box set emanates from the Howard Lamden film of this concert - although that is not 100% certain at this point. Many highlights in this show, including perhaps the definitive performance of “Drive All Night”. (…)
