...Last week, the Crystal Cat Label released the BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN & THE E STREET BAND 3CD set, "Santiago Dream Night", which captures their performance at Monte Do Gozo, Santiago de Compostela, Santiago, Spain on August 2nd, 2009.  Now here's the Easter gift reference, and you may have gotten the word directly if your a Crystal Cat collector, but they threw out the offer that they'll send you a free set of the newly available soundboard source, of the November 8,2009 Madison Square Garden performance -IF you purchased their audience source originally. We lead off with that because THAT, is very cool....nicely done CCat..the new "Santiago Dream Night" is pictured below...
