My Friday Bruce Fixes are sometimes very random and spontaneous. Today is an example.
I came home last night from a Blue Jays baseball game (thanks Steve), fired up my computer, opened a browser and went to YouTube. I searched on Bruce Springsteen and saw a song called ‘Without You’ which I couldn’t immediately place. I watched the video and quickly decided that would inspire this week’s fix.
When Bruce assembled the E-Street Band in 1995 to record, four songs from those sessions were added to the Greatest Hits CD compilation issued in 1995. I’ll lead off with one of the four that made the cut, ‘Blood Brothers’, and will then follow it with two other songs from those sessions. ‘Back in Your Arms’ features a vocal performance that I’ve always considered superior to the one he chose to release on ‘Tracks’. To my knowledge, ‘Without You’ hasn’t surfaced anywhere else other than the via the video of these sessions which were part of the ‘Blood Brothers’ feature length documentary released in 1996.
