Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band, Channeling Sacred Fire, on "The Darkness on Edge of Town" Tour (1978)
whiteray: "....And here’s a black-and-white clip of Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band performing “The Promised Land” at the Capitol Theatre in Passaic, New Jersey, on September 19, 1978. The visuals are a little grainy, but the music is excellent. ...."
Me: Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band were on the "Darkness on the Edge of Town" tour during the show in the clip -- I saw their St. Petersburg, FL gig in August, very soon befor this clip was shot.
Bruce was burning up with an inferno of inspired passion, of sacred prophet fire that I do not believe, until The Rising, his 9/11 album.
Live Darkness beats families turning to pink dust in the New York sky ever time.
Guitars wailed through the night like "singing winds and crying beasts." And then, you enter, Candy's Room .... 'Yea, I'll pay the price, and I'll be there on time.'
"We are born into this life payin', for the sins of somebody else's past."
Are you down with that?
