Against the backdrop of Old Glory, Bruce Springsteen opened the four-concert finale to his 15 month tour at the Coliseum with the hit song "Born in the U.S.A." 9/27/1985.
This was the year that Rock superstar Bruce Springsteen finally pleased his fans by releasing a set of live concert recordings spanning a ten-year period. The five records set became number one on the charts, the first week it was offered for sale; unprecedented in the music industry. Fans of the Boss waited in the line all night to be the first to own a set. This was also the year President Reagan told voters to vote for him one last time. Here are some echoes of Election 86'.

Ronald Reagan: If you'd like to vote for me one more time, you can do so by voting for Jim Santini.

Speaker: This is not a referendum on the President. These elections were decided on their own individual characteristics on issues, the personalities that were relevant to that particular state.

Speaker: We can work well with the Democrats, it's going to make it more difficult though for Ronald Reagan.

Speaker: I would have to say, it's going to have a hard time in the future getting the money for the Contras.

Speaker: Absolutely, it is.

Dennis Daily: For Democrats, it was a sweet victory. They regained control of the senate and with a bigger margin than the Republicans had enjoyed. Republicans though did well in many state and local offices. 1986, the Year-end Review continues in a moment on the UPI Radio Network.
