Radio broadcast, soundboard tapes (all three nights were recorded by the Record Plant's mobile unit, both on multi-track and live-to-two track) and professionally shot in-house black and white video of both the concert and parts of the soundcheck. Probably one of the best all-time concert recordings. Great versions of "Because The Night" and "Fire," and also includes what many consider to be the finest examples of "Racing In The Street" and "Thunder Road" ever! - Essential. Also, video footage is available. A short live excerpt from this show (Bruce's band introduction during "Rosalita") was officially - and exclusively - released on a promotion-only 7" flexidisc issued to subscribers of Austrian pop magazine "Rennbahn Express" in June 1981. Thanks to Lost in the Flood for that info. Following the show, WBCN-TV news reporter Felipe Luciano interviews Bruce. Released on CD "Piece De Resistance" (Great Dane) and "Southside Bruce And The E Street Jukes" (Seagull) and most recently as "Passaic Night" (Crystal Cat).
