    Papa Memba yesterday. Billy Paul today. Absolute nightmare year.

    Superb – brought a shiver to the spine

  4. Anthony C says:

    Absolutely amazing – bless you Bruce.

    That’s the sort of thing Prince would do!

    Thank you so much!!!!

    Class Act.

    Thanks, as always, Paul for the information! An amazing rendition by The Boss. Someone mentioned his Bowie cover and I wanted to credit his excellent Eagle’s (Glenn Frey) tribute “Take It Easy” performed in January [also offered as a free download – the entire show as a matter of fact].

    Was expecting this to be terrible, but it’s not bad. Right up until the guitar solo onwards anyways.

  8. Paul Wad says:

    Mmm, I don’t seem to be able to take advantage of this free download, as each time I click on the link it just takes me to a black page with the song playing. Could someone please tell me what stupid mistake I’m making?

    Prince would have sued him :)

    Nice live tribute but this download will appeal to fans of the Boss. As a Prince fan I’d prefer to listen to the original for the thousandth+ time any day.

    There is a reason this man is called THE BOSS

    Does anyone know how to actually download the track? My windows 10 system simply plays the track and there doesn’t seem to be a ‘save as’ option. Am I simply missing something here…?
    Thanks…

      Just saw your comment Paul and realised it must be Microsoft Edge. No problem when I used IE11. I really don’t know why I persist with Edge.

    One thing to come from the Purple One’s passing is that all the live videos that kept getting plucked from youtube and the like by his legal heavies are all being reuploaded now. There’s an excellent 1984 live version on yt that is around 19 mins long.

    Annoyingly, though, all his studio stuff seems to have been pulled from the streaming services, so it’s in one hand and out the other!

    Truly a great heartfelt version, by ALL members of the band. From Max Weinberg’s drumming to SVZ, this really is a great version.

    Is it gone? I can’t seem to download it now from that link.
