A very good audience tape, with the only problem being the taper’s girlfriend shouting and screaming A LOT.
She screams almost all the time through ’10th Avenue’ but other than that, I can’t say it bothers that much –
I’d say it pissed me off the most when she keeps screaming during the quiet parts of Jungleland.
I don’t usually get any recordings with a lot of screaming/shouting near taper, but on this show the good sound makes up for it enough.

Thanks a lot to mr. Freezer for taping the show and sharing this gem.

Little editing note: Reduced volume during some screaming parts between songs. One of the great performances of Sandy.


Taper Notes:

I had a girlfriend who wanted to “sing” along all night. And she is LOUD and off-key and out of time
(you’ll love the first few songs in set 2…….) IF I had pulled that whistle out, she’d have
tooted it all night, her singing is bad enough….but it can be ignored IF you’re really a Boss fan….
(I was, this was my 7th show since 1975….in 1976 I had seat ! in row A and he jumped off the
stage in front of me while I was taping, looked at me, laughed and ran out into the audience……)
But as regards my then-girlfriend:
You’ll thrill to her duet with Bruce on Hungry Heart……
You’ll marvel at her version of Sherry Darlin’…..
You’ll be shaking your head as she joins in on the choruses of Fire….
You’ll be pissed off at me for not telling her to shut up…
But, hey, I was “in love” … she was so cute…..but she kept quiet through other shows, bands
like Ramones, Squeeze, John Cale, The Who, Snakefinger……I figured I owed her a night to get
sloppy drunk and sing and dance and howl at a concert…..Now, you too will get a chance to enjoy
her 25 years after the fact……Freezer

Sorry for the disappearing act last week, I got knocked out by a killer head cold. Tell the truth I still aint over it so I’m not sure how productive I’ll be this week. But I’m gonna try. I’ve also slightly branched out from the slew of Dead shows and brought in a Wilco number. Wilco seem pretty cool with taping and so I feel pretty confident they won’t get taken down. I’ll probably bring out some other taper friendly shows soon as well.
