August 22, 1999: The Boston Tea Party (Review)

Back to Reunion Tour Listing Back to the Selected Bootleg

The Boston Tea Party

This is not just another copy of the Boston ALD. It is actually the rather sterile ALD tape combined with a good audience recording. This is a practice that is quite common among Springsteen audio enthusiasts who exchange shows on the internet. None of these combined recordings had made it to commercial bootlegging till this one.

And I must say the result is excellent. You get the detail, the clarity and the upfront sound of the ALD and the atmosphere from the audience recording. The best of both worlds so to speak. The preferred document of this show.

Packaging: 8
Sound: 10 (ALD/Audience)
Collecting Value: 8.5
