The Way You Do The Things You Do / 634-5789

I was thinking about The Apollo Theater in Harlem this morning because on this day in 1962 James Brown recorded his famous and possibly one of the greatest live albums that was released in 1963 at the historic venue. I then remembered that I had already posted about it earlier in the year and thought I wouldn't get away with posting it again! If you want to check out that post you can do so HERE.

So instead of James Brown and the Famous Flames I thought I'd post another of my favourite shows that was recorded at the venue. 

The show was a "warm up" for the Wrecking Ball Tour in 2012 and was broadcast on SiriusXM Satellite Radio as part of their 10th Anniversary celebrations.

Springsteen's introduction of himself is reminiscent of M.C. Fats Gonder's introduction of James Brown & The Famous Flames on that October night in 1962.

This performance saw the 61 year old Springsteen in among the crowd during Waiting For A Sunny Day and other songs and even climbing up the balconies and standing on a ledge during a medley of classic Soul tunes!

Tributes were paid to the departed Clarence Clemons and Danny Federici with the reminder : "The only thing I can guarantee tonight... if you're here and we're here, they're here."

Tracks from the brand new album, Wrecking Ball, were unveiled with eight of the twelve tracks getting an airing. The E Street Band were joined by the E Street Horns and the E Street Choir meaning there were eighteen people on stage!

The show was the first of the "Bruce Springsteen Archives" to be released via Springsteen's Website in November 2014 along with 30 shows from the High Hopes Tour.
