Bruce Springsteen is continuing his live Archive Series of CDs which began last year with the release of the Apollo Theater, New York City concert of March 12, 2012 and the Agora Theatre, Cleveland show of August 9, 1978 (from The Darkness on the Edge of Town tour). The newest release, for which pre-orders began Tuesday, takes fans back to the Tower Theatre, Philadelphia, on December 31, 1975 when Springsteen and the E Street Band held the stage for an electrifying night.

The last night of 1975 was also the last night of the Born to Run tour. As the press information for this new release indicates, “engineer Jimmy Iovine brought The Record Plant Remote truck out for the occasion. Front of house recordings of this show have circulated for years, along with partial tapes of stereo mixes from the multi-tracks. This marks the first time the entire show has been mixed for release.”
Toby Scott at Thrill Hill remixed the tracks just last month, and Adam Ayan at Gateway Mastering mastered them for this release. The nineteen-song rock and roll extravaganza includes seven of the eight songs from Born to Run (sorry, “Meeting Across the River” fans) as well as favorites from Springsteen’s first two albums (“It’s Hard to Be a Saint in the City,” “4th of July Asbury Park (Sandy),” “Rosalita (Come Out Tonight”) and choice covers such as the epic reinvention of The Animals’ “It’s My Life,” “Mountain of Love,” “Pretty Flamingo,” the Detroit Medley, “Quarter to Three” and the show-closing “Twist and Shout.”

As with the other releases in Springsteen’s live series, Tower Theater Philadelphia 1975 is available in multiple formats: MP3, FLAC or Apple Lossless , HD-Audio FLAC-HD or ALAC-HD) and CD. CDs will not begin shipping until March 1, but those purchasing the CD have the usual option to pay extra to obtain MP3s now.

All three volumes of The Bruce Springsteen Archive Series – plus a number of recent concerts from 2014 – are available at Springsteen’s official live store for download and physical purchase.
