Legendary 1979 No Nooks Concerts, is a concert film by Springsteen and the E Street Band that includes never-before-released performances from the band’s Madison Square Garden MUSE Benefit concerts and full footage of the band’s complete setlist.
Concerts were held at the prestigious New York venue from September 21–22, 1979, when The Boss was in between their fourth and fifth studio albums, ‘Darkness on the Edge of Town’ and ‘The River’. ‘Sherry Darling’, a clip of which you can see below, was not released at the time of recording, but was later featured on ‘The River’.
In the video, Springsteen, who was 31 at the time, is seen shaking her hips and bending over to address the crowd in the front rows.
Legendary 1979 No Nooks Concerts It was edited by longtime Springsteen collaborator Thom Zimani from the original 16mm film with remixed audio from Bob Clearmountain.
It has been released worldwide digitally in HD on November 16, followed by physical formats (CD and DVD, Blu-ray and CD with vinyl) on November 23. advance order Here.
Zimoni said of the work: “A few years ago, I began re-examining the archives I filmed for Bruce and the band’s appearances at the 1979 No Nooks concerts. I quickly realized it was the best from the band’s stalwart. The performances and filming were the best in the seventies, and devoted themselves to uncovering the full potential of the footage.
“Having served as Bruce’s principal director and editor for the past 20 years, I can say without reservation that this newly re-edited, re-mixed and restored ninety-minute film is a tribute to Bruce and the band. His biggest film is the gold standard during the creative period.”
Meanwhile, Springsteen’s handwritten songs “Thunder Road”, “For You” and “Night” are all set to be auctioned later this month.
