Bruce Springsteen Taps 1993 ‘Other Band’ Show For New Vault Release

Bruce Springsteen has just issued Waldbühne, Berlin Germany, May 14, 1993, the latest official bootleg of his ongoing monthly archive series. The show, which is only the fourth set culled from his 1992/1993 tour behind Human Touch and Lucky Town featuring “The Other Band,” opens with a four-song acoustic set before the full band kicks in.

Among the highlights are an acoustic rendition of the Louvin Brothers‘ hard luck spiritual “Satan’s Jeweled Crown,” and a run-through of the then-yet-unreleased “This Hard Land,” along with electric takes on Jimmy Cliff‘s “Many Rivers To Cross,” John Fogerty‘s “Who’ll Stop The Rain” and “Rockin’ All Over The World.” Deep cuts include “Adam Raised A Cain,” “Souls Of The Departed,” and “Downbound Train.”

Upon hitting the road with the solo band in 1992, Bruce Springsteen explained why he went over four years between releasing 1987’s Tunnel Of Love collection and the double shot 1992 albums: “One of the reasons I had a long time off between records was because it was the only way that I could really reflect on what was happening on me outside of my work life. (And) have a chance to experience and come up with something new that I’d have to bring to an audience. I think the two most important relationships are the relationship with my son and my wife and my close friends and then the relationship that I’ve worked for over for 20 years with my audience. So, (I’m) tryin’ to find a way to do both as (laughs) best as possible.”
