I was there. Maybe YOU were there too...it was the final show of BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN & The E Street Band's 'Working On A Dream' Tour, and it was at Buffalo N.Y.'s HSBC Arena. It had been a very looonng tour, and when the E Streeters rolled into Buffalo, the Faithful were R-E-A-D-Y! What fans did NOT know, and would never guess, was that the performance would (sadly) be the last for Sax Player Clarence Clemmons. (He died in June 2011)

On this tour, Bruce & the band had been featuring complete performances of some of his earlier albums, and tonight in Buffalo they would perform, for the first time ever, ALL of Bruce's debut album, "Greetings From Asbury Park." The epic, 3 1/2 hour show was widely 'bootlegged' and appeared under the title, "Greetings From Buffalo N.Y., and now, as kind of a Christmas gift for his fans, Springsteen has "officially' released that concert, and can be purchased at Springsteen's website: http://bit.ly/2ijSfTW
