Notes: "A wonderful, essential-to-have, early period show." --Brucebase ----- This is the version of the E Street Band that recorded Springsteen's anthem, "Born to Run," in 1974. The 'Born to Run' album features a different line-up in which David Sancious was replaced by Roy Bittan and rnest Carter was replaced by Max Weinberg. Steve Van Zandt would not become an official ember until the Born to Run tour and Patti cailfa and Nils Lofgren did not join until the Born n the USA tour, ten years later. Wild Billy's ircus Story starts the show in a stripped down arrangement reminiscent of Springteen's 73 in-studio radio performances. The version of New York City Serenade is, in my opinion, the ingle greatest live rendition of the song ever captured on tape. For You is presented in a breath-taking solo piano rendition. ESSENTIAL LISTENING for fans of early Springsteen.<-(from original info file).
