A 24-bit/96-KHz flac24 version of this recording is also available.

Warning/Disclaimer: This recording should not be confused with the series labelled “The Dan Lampinski Tapes Volume XX”. This recording represents part of Dan’s earliest efforts to capture the live concert experience for posterity, hence the series name “Dan Lampinski – The Early Years Volume XX”. Given the very consistent high quality of Dan’s later work, it would have been easy to blow off these recordings and consign them to the dustbin of history, but there are quite a few captures in the series that are well worth circulating, if not for their rarity, but for the obsessive collector types (we know who we are) that want every single second of any recordings of their favourite musicians. So please, just accept these recordings for what they are, another part of the tapestry we weave when we collect and share such things.

Since Dan never traded copies of his recordings, they are all essentially uncirculated. Some copies were made for friends, but these releases are the first time most of these recordings have ever seen the light of day, and are direct from his master cassettes. No EQ’ing has been done to any of the transfers. Feel free to EQ, matrix, patch, etc and re-post if you like, just give Dan credit for the original recording.

Dan was very meticulous about taking good care of his tapes and is very pleased that these recordings will now circulate among the trading community. Please honour his kindness and generosity by sharing these recordings freely.

The transfers are available as 16bit/44.1KHz flac files suitable for CD burning, and also as 24bit/96KHz flac files for those who prefer the higher resolution.

Always remember – the more generous you are with your music, the more it comes back to you.

This was an outdoor show that featured Ross, Foghat, Lynyrd Skynyrd and Eric Clapton.
The version of Crossroads here is very unusual, even for this tour.

This show was included in inferior quality on the 3CD boot “Three Smiles”. The version
on that set is 4 minutes longer only because the tape runs slow.

Geetarz Comments:

Definitely one of the more “focused” of EC’s 1974 shows – in less polite terms, this is one of the ones where he was not drunk!

An excellent, very crispy soundboard, instruments and vocals are all very clear with good seperation, and very little hiss, you can
even hear EC’s amplifier buzz a bit in quieter passages.

Well-done mix, although the B3 is a tad too prominent, otherwise excellent. Recommended.

Geetarz Comments:

The date on the CD jacket is incorrectly listed as July 14, 1974.

Remember the old days? I think this was one of the first CD boots I ever bought. Back then you’d have to wait for the post to bring
“Goldmine” magazine, which at that point was a roughly telephone sized tabloid (well, I exaggerate) and if you spent hours poring
over the ads you’d come across cryptic titles, send your postal money order to Germany, or Luxembourg, or Italy ($25/single,
$50/double, plus postage) and wait, and if you were lucky, a couple of months later you’d get a package in the mail and voila! You’d
have some idea of what you had just purchased.

Back then the idea of just having tons of cool stuff available at your fingertips on a torrent site was the thing of science fiction.
Not to mention having so much information and feedback easily available.

So here it is, a fun show. I certainly enjoyed playing it today, and I hope you do, too!

mbrown02’s recent repost of Trenton ’74 reminded us that we were sitting on an alternate recording of the show. In fact, based on the data on Brucebase and to the best of our knowledge (though CB and JK might know better), Trenton may well be the first Springsteen show ever to be recorded by two different tapers, therefore making it the first two-source Bruce gig ever.

The Big A recorded Bruce several times in 1974-75, most notably the wonderful Philadelphia 11/1/74 recording and the earliest known capture of Max and Roy in the band from Kean College, 9/22/74. While he did not have high-end equipment, he got a very solid result here, arguably as good as Kivak’s previously circulated recording. Samples provided.

Not surprisingly, however, neither tape is complete, as the Big A missed the end of the show. We’ve added the missing songs from Kivak’s master to the Big A recording, as well as patching Kivak’s “Kitty’s Back” (which is cut on Kivak’s master), using the Big A source, for a bonus track. The result is two baseline recordings of the show, each made complete by patches from the other.

Needless to say this is a fantastic show from an other worldly era in Springsteen’s career. It includes an early cover of Dylan’s “I Want You,” a jaw-dropping “New York City Serenade” and the embryonic “Jungleland” with Suki Lahav on cello to name but a few highlights.

Thanks to The Big A for lending JEMS his masters. It isn’t easy to find new sources circa 1974-75 and he has provided several. Also big ups to mjk5510 for assembling this and doing the final release prep.

JEMS is very pleased to issue this previously uncirculated recording
of an historically important and otherwise unheard show.

The recording from Kean College in Union, NJ is now the earliest
document we have of the “new look” E Street Band featuring Max
Weinberg on drums and Roy Bittan on piano. According to the essential
Brucebase Wiki, this free, outdoor show (which took place behind the
student center) was the fourth date played by the new line-up,
predating by 12 days Avery Fisher Hall, October 4, which had been the
first circulating recording with Max and Roy.

It gives us a fascinating glimpse into a period of transition for
Springsteen. As such, some of the arrangements heard here are
distinctive as the reconfigured band sorts out how to play the “basic”
set. While Bruce had previously performed songs in early 1974 that
would later appear on Born to Run, the only new material essayed at
Kean is a unique version of the Born to Run outtake “A Love So Fine,”
still in such an embryonic state that the chorus sung isn’t “a love so
fine” at all, but another title rumored to have been recorded for BTR:
“A Night Like This.” He also tags the end of the song with several
lyrics from the Isley Brothers’ “Shout.” According to Brucebase, by
the time the song is played again at Avery Fisher, the chorus had
changed to “A Love So Fine” for keeps.

The Kean tape also captures the earliest known cover of Sam Cooke’s
“Cupid” and a particularly punchy full-band version of “For You,” a
song Springsteen performed solo throughout most of 1974-75. Nearly
every track here is a little different than you’re used to given that
two of the band members are still learning their parts.

Our generous taper, The Big A, says he used a “standard-for-the-time,
no-frills, fat-paperback-sized Radio Shack-type tape recorder with a
built-in mike” to record the show. That description seems to match the
tape, which has hallmarks of ALC (automatic level control) where the
first note of a song starts out loud and a bit distorted before the
level adjusts. There are some distorted frequencies in the recording
and it is not as good as the very best we have of the era. But
considering the circumstances (it was the first Bruce show he ever
taped), the outdoor venue, the gear, the PA volume, etc. it is quite a
listenable document of the performance. We worked hard to improve the
sound, but most of what you hear is just what it is. Samples provided.

Very special thanks to The Big A for loaning JEMS the master tape and
to the ER Archive, who had a copy of the show that helped lead us to
the master.
