The Legendary 1979 No Nukes Concerts from Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band were recorded at the September 1979 MUSE (Musicians United for Safe Energy) benefit concerts at Madison Square Garden in New York City.
This 2LP set features all 13 songs performed over two nights, a composite of their two performances on September 21 and 22, newly remixed by Bob Clearmountain and remastered. The set packs the intensity of a marathon Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band show into a crackling 90 minute run-time. Among the highlights are then-unreleased versions of "The River" and "Sherry Darling"; live staples "Badlands," "Born to Run," and "Thunder Road"; plus covers of "Quarter to Three," Buddy Holly's "Rave On," and a version of Maurice Williams' "Stay" featuring special guests Jackson Browne, Tom Petty, and Rosemary Butler.
The gatefold package includes a 24-page book with rare photos and memorabilia, an essay, and a beautiful 33" x 19" poster, showing a wider view of the cover shot. This folded poster is exclusive to the vinyl set.
