Live At The Roxy 1978 is a live recording by Bruce Springsteen and the E-Street Band.
It was recorded at The Roxy in Los Angeles on October 17th 1975 and broadcast on local radio.
This is not an official release approved by Bruce Springsteen but weaker copyright laws mean that it is legal in Europe. We’ve waited a long time to hear the Darkness On The Edge Of Town tour and I believe the place to start is with the Cleveland, Ohio show available from Springsteen’s own website.

Finally we have one of Bruce Springteen’s fantastic 1978 live recordings receiving an official, authorised release.
1978/08/09 Cleveland Ohio is a live album by Bruce Springsteen and the E-Street Band performing at the Agora and which is sold through live.brucespringsteen.net.
This concert was originally broadcast on the radio and has been a very popular bootleg. It was also released unofficially through the loophole in the European Union copyright laws a few months ago – see Bruce Springsteen Agora Ballroom 1978.
Ignore everything else, this is the REAL DEAL!
Background To The Cleveland Release
Toby Scott found the seven Agora tape reels in a box that had been returned from the Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall Of Fame. A comparison to other recordings of this concert showed that this had the best sound and could even be the original master tapes. These have since been cleaned up and the sound quality is terrific.
It is available as a digital download in varying qualities and also as physical CDs
Overall Rating For Bruce Springsteen Live At The Agora, Cleveland on 08/09/1978 – 29/30
I believe that this is one of the finest live recordings ever made available legally.
If it has been released close to the time or recording, I believe that this would be generally recognised as one of the greatest live albums along with The Who Live At Leeds , The Rolling Stones Brussels Affair 1973 and other classics.

Agora Ballroom 1978: The Classic Cleveland Broadcast is a live recording by Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band.
It is released on the Left Field Media label in November 2014 and takes advantage of the lower copyright protection in the European Union for live recordings that were broadcast on the radio.
If Passaic 1978 was disappoint in terms of sound quality, this is better. I should warn you that these are addictive because Springsteen varied the setlist over the tour so it’s not a case of just getting on great 1978 live recording.
These 1978 Darkness tour recordings are the holy grail as far as many Springsteen fans are concerned.
Just before Christmas 2014, Bruce Springsteen released an authorised version of the Cleeveland 1978 concert – for details see 1978/08/09 Cleveland Ohio – that is the one that you should really buy and it’s reported that it has superior sound quality.
