Bruce Springsteen has released a new live album Streets of Philadelphia recorded during The Boss’ 1999 visit to the city, performing at Philly’s First Union Center.
The has long been a favourite for keen bootleggers among his fanbase but now The Boss has had his say and the record is being officially released and is the perfect antidote to the lack of live music.
The album is named after the song Springsteen wrote for the Tom Hanks film Philadelphia and is available for purchase from his website.
The title track of the album is a rarely played gem form Springsteen and his legendary E Street Band. But the singer naturally gives a welcome run out for the song while in the city.
The band also join The Boss at the recording of Streets of Philadelphia which was captured during the last night of Springsteen’s six-night residency in 1999.
Rarely performed songs ‘Incident on 57th Street’ ‘The Fever,’ and ‘Blinded by the Light’ are given a run out on the album as well as Boss favourites like ‘Born To Run’ and ‘Thunder Road’.
