Audience tape. Opening night of the Darkness On The Edge Of Town Tour. Includes the only ever live performance of "The Promise" with the full E Street Band until the Asbury Park Carousel web broadcast in 2010. This concert features the live debut of eight songs from Darkness On The Edge Of Town, all except "Factory" and "Something In The Night" (which had made its debut in 1976), and also features the full band version of "For You". "Prove It All Night" has a piano and guitar solo introduction - this will develop and expand throughout the tour, becoming a concert highlight. "Backstreets" has continued to evolve and the middle section contains the Sad Eyes interlude for the first time. "Paradise By The 'C'" premieres as the start of the second set which also includes another premiere - "Fire". A contributor to the Greasy Lake website recalls that Bruce read the lyrics to the last two songs from a piece of paper. Released on CDR "Opening Night In The Darkness" which also covers the soundcheck (including Billy Lee Riley's 1958 rockabilly cut "Is That All To The Ball, Mr. Hall") and "Go" (B Street).

From StArt:
Along with a single show the previous night, these two shows by The Asbury Park All Star Revue are quite
unique in the history of Springsteen performances, foreshadowing shows that wouldn’t happen for another 23
years when Bruce put together his first set of Christmas benefits in 2000. Faced with the cancellation of
two nights of Asbury Jukes gigs because of an ailing Southside Johnny, Steve Van Zandt quickly organized a
fill-in group of musicians including The Jukes, various E Streeters, Ronnie Spector and Springsteen himself.
Bruce is featured on guitar and background vocals on many early Jukes staples and several Ronettes classics,
sings lead on his own The Fever (and other songs at the end of each show), and in what is easily one of his
most standout performances ever, wails away on You Mean So Much To Me with Ronnie Spector. The latter is in
the style of the version Southside recorded for his first LP, as opposed to the original interpretation of
the song as performed by Bruce early in his career.

Make no mistake, despite the typical Carlton Theatre/Monmouth Arts Center/Count Basie quality recording,
these shows are a must-have for the set lists and performances.
