Throw away the bootlegs: Bruce Springsteen has released an official version of his 1990 Christic Benefit shows.
The Boss held down a two-night solo engagement at Los Angeles’ Shrine Auditorium almost 26 years ago, to help the Christic Institute and its social reform goals. During the shows, Springsteen unveiled six new songs and new arrangements of hits from his catalog.
The nights’ marquee moment came in the encore, when Springsteen recruited Jackson Browne and Bonnie Raitt to help him cover Bob Dylan’s “Highway 61 Revisited” and “Across the Borderline.”
Springsteen is currently on the European leg of The River tour, a trek in honor of his 1980 album and its new box set.
Both shows are available to purchase as CDs, MP3, lossless audio, and more on Springsteen’s website.
