A Jazzy Summer Bootleg Update...
12 Jun 2007

In the heat of a Monday night, it's the late edition of the Bootleg News roundup here at HotWacks On-line...welcome.

Over the past 6 months, we've attempted to keep a bead on some scheduled titles that haven't come to fruition to date....that Euro BRUCE SPRINGSTEEEN comprehensive compilation...4Reels' ROLLING STONES "Houston '81" DVD...and what about the incredible Aurora Borealis CSNY multi-CD//DVD project?...tonight, I at least can share the latest on the CSNY "Sessions" box...the production on it continues and the label has shared that they are carefully doing things right.  It seems the package is tracking for a very late Summer/early September timeframe but in the meantime they are putting the final touches on their NEIL YOUNG 1971 DVD release expected to hit the streets by the end of June.  Nothing new to add to those other stories, unfortunately...Apocalypse Sound has followed up their nice SPRINGSTEEN Paris '85 DVD title with two June DVD titles...DAVID BOWIE "The Bridge Benefit" that features the October 20th, 1996 performance with REEVES GABRIELS and GAIL ANNE DORSEY in Mt. View, California with bonus tracks from the October 19th show and five TIN MACHINE tracks from Amsterdam 1989...METALLICA "Strangers In Moscow" contains the stellar show from Tushino Airfield in Moscow on September 28, 1991 in glorious proshot/soundboard quality.

New from Tambourine Man are 3 more BOB DYLAN titles from the Spring European leg of the seemingly neverending tour, 2007..."Paris Modern Time" 2CD documents the April 23rd, 2007 show at the Palais Omnisports de Paris..."Zurich Modern Times" 2CD captures the Swiss show from Hallenstadion on April 29th..."Another Side Of Modern Times" 2CD is from Munich on April 30th...there is value added interest in the deal for collectors who purchase any of the 2007 titles as TMR is offering the free bonus disc "European Modern Times", a March/April compilation to boot., and the vintage tape offering from Thinman Records is "Complete State Fair Arena" 2CD which brings us stateside with the May 18, 1976 appearance at the Oklahoma State Fairgrounds.
