ACROSS THE BORDER
Where the banned are
I am looking forward to listening to this show later tonight...
Bruce showed a whole different side to his gift on this tour, as well as the preceding D&D tour. And that was his skill for reinventing and reimagining the back catalogue.
Some of the re-arrangements on the D&D tour were remarkable, but given that was solo perhaps easier to understand. But the originals on this tour rearranged... more like, 'where the hell did he get that from?' I mean, Blinded By The Light... how do you get to that?. It carried forward into the Reason To Believe from 07/08 and Johnny 99 in 09, but it's something I'd love to see him go back to.
Not a fan of this period. I mean…the show I saw was fun and all, but one show was plenty. I rarely if ever dip into the albums….there just not something that even came close to resonating with me.
But, I’m happy a bunch of people loved it. I just prefer Bruce with a RnR Band backing him up…no banjos involved.
