    HAMMERSMITH DVD PREVIEWED AT SYMPOSIUM
    A bunch of Bruce fans sittin' around talkin'... and rockin'.
    Just back from the Glory Days Springsteen Symposium, a whirlwind weekend of impassioned Bruce talk, debate, insight, sights & sounds. High points, too many to name, included an opening talk and significant involvement all weekend from Dave Marsh; Colleen Sheehy's fascinating conversation with photographer Frank Stefanko, highlighted by many unseen photos (including a stunning peek at Stefanko's November 2004 photo shoot with Springsteen, some striking weight-of-the-world shots); BBC Music Entertainment Executive Producer Mark Hagen's presentation of his 1998 "A Secret History" documetary; Bob Santelli reminiscing with Danny Federici and Vini Lopez; and just a wealth of presentations, perspectives and discussions with fans, authors, musicians, teachers.... Kudos to Mark Bernhard and everyone involved for an inarguable success -- this conference was the first of its kind, and by its end the main question on everyone's lips was, "When are we doing this again?"

    A couple of late additions included the always engaging Bobby Muller (regaling the Saturday night dinner crowd with the story of Springsteen's involvement with the Vietnam Veterans movement, as well as addressing the current war) and -- perhaps the most "newsworthy" event of the weekend-- a surprise visit from Thom Zimny. The editor of all of Springsteen's recent concert films (Live in New York City, Live in Barcelona, VH1 Storytellers), Zimny brought a treat for the conference crowd on Sunday: a sneak peak of the Hammersmith Odeon DVD, which will present the complete 11/18/75 London show as part of the upcoming Born to Run 30th Anniversary reissue. Yes, we've finally gotten official confirmation of at least some of the much-rumored additional content for this package, and what better confirmation than two songs played in full, "She's the One" and "Quarter to Three" -- in full color and at full blast.

    Just days before the London show, Mike Appel approached Mike Appleton (original producer of the Old Grey Whistle Test) and asked if he'd film the performance. Most of the reulsting 16mm negatives sat in a storage locker -- in unlabeled cannisters -- for the better part of 30 years, until Zimny was asked to work his magic. You might have already seen some circulating footage from the show... but you ain't seen nothin' yet. Zimny spent the better part of a year piecing together footage from three cameras, restoring it frame-by-frame, synching it up with pristine audio (mixed by Bob Clearmountain in both stereo and surround), and the result is a jaw-dropper.

    In addition to the London video (runnning time: 2 hours, 9 minutes), DVD content for the 30th Anniversary of Born to Run will also include a documentary about the making of the album, directed and edited by Zimny with interviews by the BBC's Hagen. Zimny and Hagen were both onstage for the Sunday afternoon presentation, answering questions as much as they were able... like, release date? Sometime before Christmas. Good enough for now. Let the salivating begin.

    We've been buzzing about this release for months in the online Springsteen community. Although the release has not been officially announced yet, in addition to the news from the symposium, Little Steven himself confirmed it in a newspaper interview about a month ago. He also mentioned interviews that were done with the band about Born To Run. Rumor also has it that the set will include outtakes - both studio and live - from the era.

    Funny thing is, you can find quotes from Bruce back in the 70s in which he said he wasn't pleased with the London performance.

    New rumors suggest two DVDs with a remastered version of the album on CD.

    Amen to that - Bruce at what I still consider his peak.

    For that, give me any night on the 1978 tour!

    Not that he's been too shabby lately. The Reunion, Rising and Devils tours have all been great. He's still the best live performer in rock and roll, and as someone once said, the last of the rock and roll true believers.

    Roxy or Winterland, please... assuming either one was filmed. If not, the Phoenix show that the Rosalita video came from would be fine with me.

    And while we're at it, how's about a 2009 re-release of No Nukes? Screw that! How about 2006 re-release?!

    Were Bruce's shows shorter in those days. Two hours seems very short. I know his 80s shows usually clocked in at around 3 1/2 hours. I'm not complaining. A Bruce show from 1975 sounds amazing. I was just curious.

    It would be. I hope they filmed it (otherwise, it would be a little hard to put out a DVD, wouldn't it?) [​IMG]

    The longer shows started with the 78 tour, which began the 3-set structure (2 full sets and a very lengthy encore). The shows got slightly longer in '80, but beginning in '78, the show was nearly 3 hours.

    There should be an announcement of the DVD today.

    boner alert

    COLUMBIA RECORDS TO RELEASE HISTORIC 'BORN TO RUN 30TH ANNIVERSARY EDITION' ON NOVEMBER 15

    BOX SET WILL INCLUDE THREE SEPARATE DISCS INCLUDING A STUNNING DVD OF THE LEGENDARY 1975 HAMMERSMITH ODEON CONCERT; A DVD OF "WINGS FOR WHEELS: THE MAKING OF BORN TO RUN," WITH NEVER BEFORE SEEN ARCHIVAL FOOTAGE AND NEW INTERVIEWS WITH ALL THE BAND MEMBERS AND MANY OTHERS; AND A CD OF THE BRILLIANTLY REMASTERED 'BORN TO RUN'

    Columbia Records will release the 'Born To Run 30th Anniversary Edition' box set on November 15. Personally supervised by Bruce Springsteen and Jon Landau, the box set includes "Hammersmith Odeon, London '75," an astonishing film of Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band's legendary 1975 concert at the Hammersmith Odeon in London; the new film "Wings For Wheels: The Making of Born To Run;" the classic album in remastered CD form; and finally, a 48 page booklet of previously unpublished photographs. With its two DVDs, the package offers approximately four hours of previously unseen footage.

    "I believe that the combination of the great 1975 concert footage, the brilliant documentary of the making of the album and the dazzling remastering of 'Born to Run' add up to a nearly perfect storm of Bruce's music," said longtime manager Jon Landau.

    Spanning roughly two hours and ten minutes, the November 18, 1975 concert at London's Hammersmith Odeon finds an epic performance of sixteen Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band classics, including "Thunder Road," "Tenth Avenue Freeze Out," "Jungleland," and "Born To Run," as well as such other favorites such as "Kitty's Back" and "Rosalita." The multiple-camera film of the complete concert will be available in its entirety and its original sequence, as newly edited by Emmy Award Winner Thom Zimny. "Hammersmith Odeon, London '75" is the only full-length concert film ever released of Bruce and the E Street Band's first 25 years.

    Zimny's production team painstakingly cleaned the original negatives and digitally restored the footage, ultimately presenting this indispensable concert in vibrant color and detail. Producer Bob Clearmountain remastered and remixed the DVD in both stereo and 5.1 surround sound. Zimny has worked with Springsteen on several projects, including editing the Emmy-winning "Live in New York," the quadruple-platinum certified, Emmy-nominated "Live in Barcelona" and the "VH1 Storytellers" films. Clearmountain is the legendary mixer who has often collaborated with Springsteen over the last twenty- five years, most famously on 'Born in the USA.'

    The ninety-minute documentary "Wings For Wheels: The Making of Born To Run" chronicles the definitive story of the creation of 'Born To Run,' from songwriting to production and beyond. "Wings For Wheels" boasts archival film never shown publicly, including substantial footage of Springsteen and the E Street Band recording the album, 1975 concert film and other footage shot between 1973 and 1975. The film also features exclusive footage of Springsteen playing solo piano and guitar versions of songs from 'Born To Run.'

    In addition, "Wings For Wheels" incorporates newly filmed interviews with Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band, including former members who played on the album, as well as the production team. In newly shot footage from Asbury Park, NJ, Springsteen discusses his personal feelings about the making of the iconic album in great depth; the footage with Springsteen includes the musician reflecting on outtakes and unreleased tracks from the album for the first time since 1975. The DVD of "Wings For Wheels: The Making of Born to Run" ends with stunning bonus footage of three songs recorded live at Los Angeles' Ahmanson Theater in 1973: "Spirit In The Night," "Wild Billy's Circus Story" and " Thundercrack."

    Finally, the box set will feature a CD of the newly remastered 'Born To Run,' as well as a remarkable 48-page photo album of previously unpublished photographs with an introduction written by Springsteen. This is the first time Springsteen has allowed any of his catalogue to be fully remastered and he enlisted his longtime mastering guru Bob Ludwig to handle the job. The newly remastered version presents the masterpiece with striking clarity and presence. Widely regarded as one of the cornerstone albums in rock and roll history, 'Born To Run' has been recognized by many international polls as one of the greatest albums of all time. It has sold nearly nine million albums worldwide. Of 'Born To Run,' which was originally released August 25, 1975, Rolling Stone wrote, "It is a magnificent album that pays off on every bet ever placed on him-and it should crack his future wide open."
