BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN- YOU CAN TRUST YOUR CAR TO THE MAN WHO WEARS THE STAR TAKRL 24093,2 LPs  Unnoficcial,segona edició portada blanc i negre.

Live at the Main Point, Pennsylvania,,USA  February 5th, 1975

Aquesta es una versió en doble vinil, que va ser grabada directament del concert emés per la radio WMMR-FM l´ 5 de febrer de 1975, 2 horas després de la actuació en directe.

Desafortunadament,se escoltan alguns sorolls e interferencias,asi com clicks,encara que aquest vinil no perd el seu interés coleccionista.

El titol del lp,es tret de un anunci vintage de la Texaco Oil Co.

Com anécdota de aquesta grabació, Springsteen no volia que fos emés per la radio,perque tocaba varias varias demos que sortirian probablement al seu próxim disc, ”Born to Run”.

Va ser l´estrena de “Thunder Road”(al disc,”Wings for Wheels”),”Back in The USA”,i

“Mountain of Love”.També unas versions de “Born to Run”,“Jungleland”,i una gran versió de Dylan,”I want You”.

El concert de Main Point captura 2 de las millors etapas,nou material del álbum “Born to run”,i primeras cançons com “Kitty´s Back”,o “New York City serenade”.

A la radio van posar 18 cançons,que era tot el setlist del concert,aquest concert senser va ser editat en format CD,mentras que la versió en vinil,es una part.

La durada del concert es de uns impresionants 160 minuts,i es considerat un dels millors concerts  de Springsteen.

El concert va ser editat en vinils piratas i cintas,als mitjans dels 70s.

Notes: From Brucebase:

The complete show was broadcast and the above-noted 18-song setlist represents the entire concert. Not only is it one of the longest (160 minutes) single-show gigs up to this point but it’s
one of the most compelling performances of Springsteen’s entire career. There are spellbinding renditions of “Incident On 57th Street”, “New York City Serenade” and “For You”
(in the solo piano arrangement), the earliest known performances of “Mountain Of Love” and “Thunder Road” (with work-in-progress “Wings For Wheels” title/lyrics) plus a wild, majestic
version of Chuck Berry’s “Back In The U.S.A.”. “Rosalita (Come Out Tonight)” includes a snippet of “Theme From Shaft” in the midsection. Contrary to myth the police siren heard at the
conclusion of ìIncident On 57th Streetî is an audio prop that had been utilized at a few of Bruceís shows just prior to this one, i.e. it was not a real vehicle.

I can do recordings to be transfered in digital source

the most rare original pressings,are hard-to-find albums than often sound far superior to any reissues.Instead to pay an audio engineer,new labels use a quick mastering process than loose dynamics and destructive audio,to save money.

I have submitted masters to record labels and released digitizations with quite good dynamics.

If you have a piece of vintage audio that you would like digitized,please contact me.
