Brucebase: A homecoming, so to speak. Very unique. Springsteen's first known performance at his primary school since the late 1965 period, when Bruce (as a member of The Castiles) played CYO dances there. Bruce dedicates "This Hard Land" to Castiles manager Tex Vinyard's wife Marion (who was in the audience). An unprecedented nine tour premieres including the sole tour performances of "Open All Night", "Used Cars" and "My Hometown". Guest performers were Soozie Tyrell on "The River", "My Hometown" and "Racing In the Street", and both Soozie and Patti Scialfa on "Mansion On The Hill", "Two Hearts" and "When You're Alone". World premiere of Bruce's little comedy piece "Freehold". "Dry Lightning" and "Galveston Bay" are each dropped for the first time on the tour.

Notes: Another of the many tapes left to me by Bickle. This is an amazing show, so many new songs done in the solo acoustic format for the first time. Sort of a preview of what the D&D tour would be nine years later. Also a note of great thanks and much appreciation to Mark(mjk5510) for assisting with a distortion issue that I hadn't noticed, to get this to the finish line. The taper had a good location and it is an excellent pull. There are a few songs where there were fades as I guess he was trying to conserve tape. I tried to eliminate them as best as I could. This is a diffeent source than what was used in the Crystal Cat and Midnight Beat release.

Enjoy, Ivan
