The new release documents a November 16-17 stand at The Shrine Auditorium benefiting the Christic Institute.

Both shows feature guest appearances by Jackson Browne and Bonnie Raitt, who joined Springsteen for renditions of Bob Dylan‘s “Highway 61 Revisited” and a song called “Across the Borderline” that was co-written by Ry Cooder, John Hiatt and Jim Dickinson. Other tunes that Bruce performed at the concerts include “Brilliant Disguise,” “Darkness on the Edge of Town,” “Tenth Avenue Freeze-Out,” “Atlantic City,” “Thunder Road” and “My Hometown.”

Both shows are available for purchase now as a single digital download in various resolutions, including MP3 and 24-bit high-resolution versions. A three-CD set also is available. Live.BruceSpringsteen.net is hosted by the popular live music delivery platform nugs.net.
