How Do You Release a Four Hour Bootleg?

This is way more Bruce Springsteen than most people can probably handle:

Bruce Springsteen has released the full, 4-hour performance of his June 7th, 1978 gig at Los Angeles’ Roxy.

The bootleg recording of the show was released through his ongoing archival live series, which has featured shows from 1977 all the way through to 2017.

This 1978 gig proved particularly popular among fans after it initial broadcast on KMET-FM Los Angeles. It has never been given an official release until now – you can buy it here.

Welcome to the show that never ends, I guess. 

Every artist should have a website like Bruce Springsteen. Want to buy an old show? Even one that went on for four hours? You got it.

Really. It's yours for less that $25 bucks. How cool is that?

This reminds me of one of the greatest lines from Bruce McCulloch: "Our love is like a Bruce Springsteen concert. It's not that great, it's really long, but, wow! What energy."
