Classic Springsteen Bootleg Gets Official Release

One of the most widely bootlegged Bruce Springsteen performances -- rated by many fans as his greatest concert -- finally has an official release 40 years after the fact.

The Roxy July 7th, 1978, which is available now at, was broadcast live on KMET in Los Angeles and spread quickly throughout bootlegging circles that summer. Springsteen debuted two new originals -- “Point Blank” and “Independence Day” -- in his two sets and played three other unreleased tracks and four unreleased covers (including Buddy Holly's "Rave On" to open).
