Bruce Springsteen releases archival 1978 Cleveland concert

Bruce Springsteen has released a legendary 1978 Cleveland club show as the second offering in his new archival concert series.

The August 9, 1978 show at The Agora was originally simulcast in its entirety by local rock station WMMS and many other stations around the US to an estimated audience of 3 million listeners.

For years bootleg copies of the FM broadcast, in various degrees of quality, widely circulated among collectors and established The Agora ’78 as a legendary performance from Darkness-era Springsteen.

Not until now, however, has the pristine live stereo mix been heard.

Last month, Springsteen launched the archival series with the release of a 2012 live set from New York’s Apollo Theater.

The March 9, 2012 show was the opening night of Springsteen’s tour in support of “Wrecking Ball.”

Springsteen is making archival concerts available as high-resolution 24-bit downloads, MP3s, or lossless CD-Quality downloads at
