Flint’s Classic Rock – 103.9 The Fox

Out now is The Live Series: Songs Of Location, Bruce Springsteen‘s latest “greatest hits” collection from his officially sanctioned archival live bootleg series. The new 15-track compilation, features “The Boss” chronologically over the years — both with and without the E Street Band — spanning gigs from December 12th, 1975 in Greenvale, New York through July 23rd, 2016 in Goteborg, Sweden.

The Songs Of Location follows the recent Live Series sets Songs Of The Road, Songs Of Friendship, Songs Of Hope, Songs Of Love, Songs From Around The World, the two-volume Songs Under Cover, Songs Of Summer, and the all-acoustic comp — Stripped. The collections are the joint product of the Legacy imprint of Springsteen’s Sony label and Nugs.net, which produces and distributes his monthly archival sets.

Guitarist Steve Van Zandt told us that the E Street Band is built on spontaneity and is able to keep their shows so flexible because they don’t fall into the same traps as other touring groups: “Y’know, I know a lot of bands, they just play the same sets, ’cause they have that (laughs) expensive production that has to be coordinated — which we don’t have. Y’know, we’re like the light man, the sound man, (laughs) they’ll catch up — they’ll figure it out by the second verse. We don’t care. It’s all about the music, it’s all about the relationship with the audience and we kind of just go for it. I’m very proud that we’re able to turn arenas, and even stadiums, into clubs.”
