RE-UP: Springsteen live in Springfield 1976 - 1CD - August 22 - soundboard

1976-08-22 - SPRINGFIELD CIVIC CENTER, SPRINGFIELD, MA

NIGHT (3.10) / RENDEZVOUS (3.02) / SPIRIT IN THE NIGHT (4.20) / IT'S MY LIFE (10.23) / THUNDER ROAD (4.09) / SHE'S THE ONE (12.00) / BORN TO RUN / SOMETHING IN THE NIGHT (4.27) / BACKSTREETS (7.20) / TENTH AVENUE FREEZE-OUT (with The Miami Horns) (4.18) / JUNGLELAND (9.12) / ROSALITA (COME OUT TONIGHT) (12.57)

A soundboard tape which has the honour of being the most mis-dated one. Although only starting with Springsteen & The E Street Band on August 1st this is the final performance for the Miami Horns Quartet (Line-up # 1), who must leave to re-join Southside Johnny on tour. (Note: these four guys comprised the entire Jukes Miami Horns line-up at the time. There were no other musicians. They expanded to a five-piece in November 1976 with the addition of Richie “La Bamba” Rosenberg, but between April and November 1976, these four players were the Jukes Miami Horns. The Jukes were off the road while Southside recovered from illness. - thanks to Mike for the clarification.

This particular venue is not listed by most books on the subject, but the board tape is definitely not from any of the other known tapes and certainly comes from this period - "Something in the Night" has no trumpet backing and "Born To Run" is in the main set. “Rosalita” includes Roy playing a minute of Bach’s “Prelude No. 1 from "The Well-Tempered Clavier” in the band introductions (Thanks to Ingunn for that).

A fan present comments, "So we sit patiently waiting for the band, with no idea what is about to hit us. After a seemingly endless wait, the lights dim and the band comes out and Bam! they burst into "The Night" - such a powerhouse version that I can still feel the buzz from it when I think about it. That song is never mentioned as one of the great Springsteen tunes, but since that time, I've always regarded it as one of his finest. I've been a huge rock music fan for all of my life - since those days, I've been a music critic and written hundreds of articles and thousands of reviews and have bought well over ten thousand records and CDs. I've played in my own band, recorded multiple CDs, and run an independent record label, and after all this, I still think of that show as the point where I first saw something that I've only seen a handful of other times: what real rock and roll is." - thanks to Steve G for that - and the alternate stub above.

The tape was first booted many years ago on the old vinyl "Cry Me a River", "Live in Philadelphia I and II", and "Streets of Fire", the last of which was probably the source for the "Streets of Life" CD . The problem is, when did this show take place? It does not match either of the audience tapes of the two known Philadelphia shows. The CD "Arena Rock" purports to be a complete soundboard of October 25th at the Spectrum in Philadelphia (see listing), but in fact it simply grafts Ed Sciaky's intro and the encores onto this tape. The CDs "The Palace Theater" and "Deep Down in the Vaults" list the show as August 21st Palace Theatre, Waterbury, CT, but there is an audience tape of that show, and it does not match this one. August 22 at Springfield, Massachusetts has been used as sort of a generic date for this set, but there are plenty of open times for unknown dates to have taken place during this time. Also released on CDR "Springfield Rock City"

Audience tape. Released on CDR "Sixth Rendezvous In Red Bank", and from the master cassettes "Sixth Night at Monmouth Arts Center" (Fanatic). Some, or all, of this show was filmed in colour, possibly by Barry Rebo. The complete "Tenth Avenue Freeze-Out" was shown by Thom Zimny at the Rock 'n' Rock Hall Of Fame discussion in June 2009. Reports indicate three cameras were used, but only two are visible in the footage that circulates amongst fans. Parts of "It's My Life" and "Tenth Avenue Freeze-Out" are seen in The Promise: The Making Of The Darkness On The Edge Of Town documentary in October 2010. Edited video of "Something In The Night" is officially released on the Darkness boxset in November 2010, with the final verse missing, for reasons unknown.
