Live/1975-85
Columbia
Springsteen's live album isn't
just another album; it's an event.
It's probably the recording event of
the year.
The five records would be worth
talking about if for no other reason
than that it finally makes Spring -
steen's justly lauded live perfor -
mances available to the general
public.
But, this album is more than
just a chronicle. With it, Columbia
affirms what has become obvious
in the last few years: Springsteen
has written and performed the finest
rock music in America for over a
full decade.
American rock, from Elvis
SPresley to Bob Dylan to Bruce
Springsteen, has always been pro -

pelled by dynamic individuals, in
contrast to England's tendency to
produce great rock bands.
Springsteen established himself
as the legitimate heir to that
tradition by watching the world
with the eyes of a poet and talking
about it in the language of the
street; by learning from his
immediate predecessors what it
means to be an icon and then
abdicating the power; and by ex -
osing the hopelessness of his
culture while still loving and
celebrating it.
In songs like "Born to Run" and
"Rosalita" he created standards for a
second generation of rock audiences,
and in ones like "Johnny 99" and
"Born in the U.S.A." he offered a
view of America that too few of his
fans consider seriously enough.
The selections here are all
superb. True, the producers might
have included more unreleased

material, might have offered some
samples from before 1975, and
might have exchanged some ver -
sions here for others, but it would
be hard to part with anything al -
ready here. With as much material
as Springsteen has to draw from,
it's inevitable that somebody's
favorites will be left out.

It has been easy in the last two
years to mistake radio's overplay
for Springsteen's decline. He
remains America's first citizen of
rock and roll even as he steps into
middle age. This album is ample
testimony to that fact.
