In 1995 Bruce Springsteen embarked on his first ever solo acoustic tour in support of his eleventh studio album The Ghost Of Tom Joad. From November 1995 to May 1997 he played a total of 128 shows in small venues across the US and Europe and also in Canada, Australia and Japan. Early in the tour fans got a taste of what the shows were like when a selection of 10 songs from the December 8 and December 9 1995 performances from Philadelphia’s Tower Theatre were broadcast on US album-oriented rock stations as part of the December 14 1995 edition of the Columbia Records Radio Hour syndicated radio show. The selection consists of five songs from the Tom Joad album and five more that spanned his career. These included Does This Bus Stop At 82nd Street?, a song from his debut album which also formed part of the demo that he recorded for John Hammond of CBS Records in advance of getting his first recording contract. Also the radically rearranged and misinterpreted 80’s hit Born In The USA and the Academy Award and four Grammy Awards winner Streets Of Philadelphia. – Eddy Wehbe
