Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band ‎– Complete 1978 Radio Broadcasts - FM/FLAC

This is an "unofficial" bootleg set on the "Soundstage" label that appears to be legal in some parts of the world where radio shows don't hold any copyright. The silvers can be had for a very cheap price if you can find them, sometimes only $15 or $20 for the 15CD set. Overall, excellent sound.

15 cd box set

By the time Darkness On The Edge Of Town was released in June 1978, Bruce Springsteen was firmly established as America’s most exhilarating rock performer. He and the E Street Band relentlessly toured the country from May of that year until January 1st 1979, playing 115 intense shows that have become the stuff of legend. This incendiary new 15-disc set gathers five exceptional performances that were broadcast on FM radio between July and December, and finds the Boss at the peak of his powers, tackling a huge range of material with unstinting energy and passion. Presented with copious background notes and images, it’s an essential addition to any serious Springsteen collection.

This is great, but I got errors trying to extract the files - with both WINRAR and 7Z.

Everything seemed to stop at the end of D14, so the final 2 tracks on D14 and all of D15 did not extract.

I got "unexpected end of data" errors for part1 and part 2 and "data errors" for D2-T6 and D14-T10.

I had no Errors with WinRAR on Windows 7. Are all parts except the last one exactly the same size of roughly 1GB?

First show is amazing, great sound, love the Thunder Road story though this isn't the best telling of it. Looking forward to the remaining shows. Thanks SilentBob!

Thank You! As a long time Springsteen collector I have several versions of all of these but thanks for spreading these. For many these were an introduction to Bruce for the first time.

Bruce just released Roxy as his July 2018 download

I have the 15-CD set and I dig it, but I'm always interested to compare to the mix or mastering if Bruce someday releases one of these shows officially. On the first week of July 2018, Bruce released Roxy 1978 through his official download site.
