XPN MusicNotes: Watch Bruce Springsteen join Brian Wilson on stage, Listen to Prince’s new song, and Dylan’s most expensive vinyl – Blood on the Tracks – for sale


Not one but two music legends performed last night in Holmdel, NJ as Bruce Springsteen surprised everyone by joining Beach Boy Brian Wilson on stage.

Brian Wilson was performing at the PNC Bank Arts Center in Holmdel, NJ when Bruce Springsteen walked on stage and sang harmony to “Barbara Ann” during an encore. “The Boss” then grabbed a guitar and played as Brian Wilson sang “Surfin’ U.S.A.” Afterwards, Springsteen, who lives in nearby Colts Neck NJ, walked off the stage.

Prince’s new song: HARDROCKLOVER is out. Listen below.

Prince has removed his entire catalog from all streaming services (including Apple Music) except for Jay Z’s Tidal. A note on Prince’s Spotify artist page says that “Prince’s publisher has asked all streaming services to remove his catalog. We have cooperated with the request and hope to bring his music back as soon as possible.” Prince has been on the Tidal bandwagon for a while now.


The above picture is a photo of what is believed to be one of only 5 original vinyl pressings in existence of Bob Dylan‘s classic album “Blood On The Tracks.” Last month, Amoeba Music acquired a big collection of vinyl from an “iconic music industry family” in New Jersey, and one of the records in that collection turned out to be a test pressing of Bob Dylan’s 1975 classic Blood On The Tracks. And now Amoeba Music is selling it for $12,000, which makes it the most expensive record they’ve ever put up for sale. Bob Dylan recorded the album in New York, and then re-recorded half of the tracks in Minneapolis a few months later, resulting in an album that’s split evenly between the two sessions. This test pressing for sale is said to contain four previously unreleased takes of “Tangled Up In Blue,” “Idiot Wind,” “Lily, Rosemary, And The Jack Of Hearts,” and “If You See Her, Say Hello,” and a different take of “You’re A Big Girl Now.” The test pressing is currently on display and up for sale at the Amoeba Records store in Hollywood.
