Wembley ’81

The first official live recording from Europe ’81 is a revelatory chapter in Springsteen’s touring history. London provides a window into this extraordinary stretch of the River tour that saw Bruce exploring new musical directions through songs like “Follow That Dream” and “Johnny Bye Bye.” On a crusade to convert first-time audiences across the continent, Springsteen and the E Street Band never played better, pouring out potent versions of River material and sublime covers including CCR’s “Who’ll Stop The Rain,” Gary U.S. Bonds’ “Jolé Blon” and Elvis’ “Can’t Help Falling In Love.”
