Bruce Springsteen has just issued Waldbühne, Berlin Germany, May 14, 1993, the latest official bootleg of his ongoing monthly archive series. The show, which is only the fourth set culled from his 1992/1993 tour behind Human Touch and Lucky Town featuring “The Other Band,” opens with a four-song acoustic set before the full band kicks in.

Among the highlights are an acoustic rendition of the Louvin Brothers‘ hard luck spiritual “Satan’s Jeweled Crown,” and a run-through of the then-yet-unreleased “This Hard Land,” along with electric takes on Jimmy Cliff‘s “Many Rivers To Cross,” John Fogerty‘s “Who’ll Stop The Rain” and “Rockin’ All Over The World.”  Deep cuts include “Adam Raised A Cain,” “Souls Of The Departed,” and “Downbound Train.”

The tracklisting to Bruce Springsteen’s ‘Berlin – 5/13/93’ is:

“Darkness On The Edge Of Town,” “Adam Raised A Cain,” “Satan’s Jeweled Crown,” “This Hard Land,” “Better Days,” “Lucky Town,” “Atlantic City,” “57 Channels (And Nothin’ On),” “Badlands,” “Many Rivers To Cross,” “My Hometown,” “Leap Of Faith,” “Man’s Job,” “Roll Of The Dice,” “Downbound Train,” “Because The Night,” “Brilliant Disguise,” “Human Touch,” “The River,” “Who’ll Stop The Rain?,” “Souls Of The Departed,” “Born In The U.S.A.,” “Light Of Day,” “Hungry Heart,” “Glory Days,” “Across The Borderline,” “Born To Run,” “My Beautiful Reward,” “Working On The Highway,” “Rockin’ All Over The World,” and “Bobby Jean.”


  • Although not a double album set, both Bruce Springsteen‘s 1992 albums, Human Touch and Lucky Town — which came from entirely different groups of recording sessions — were released on March 31st, 1992.
  • The albums marked the first since Springsteen’s 1989 split with the E Street Band.
  • Human Touch peaked at Number Two on the Billboard 200 albums list, with Lucky Town following at Number Three.
  • Despite their initial high placings, the albums, which marked “The Boss'” first new music in over four years, slipped quickly off the charts and produced only one Top 20 hit, with the title track of Human Town topping out at Number 16.
