  • Thank you. All right, thank you. This next song is about the story of my
    life, just about. (before Shelter From The Storm)
  • [recording breaks here] back then. Now itíd probably cost about eleven
    bucks, but back then it was cheaper, you know. Anyway, I used to know this
    one particular geek. Not very well, I never did get too tight with him.
    But I was having breakfast one day with a lady with a beard. I swear she
    had a beard. Anyway, she said, this (…..) geek he’s the low-downiest man
    in this show. But just to give you an idea of how strange he really is,
    he thinks of everybody else as being freaks. He thinks he’s very straight.
    Anyway, years later I remember that story when I started moving around a
    bit and people started looking at me in a funny way. So, somewhere along
    the line I wrote this song. (before Ballad Of A Thin Man)
  • Thank you. This is the song here that got me booed out of the
    Newport Folk Festival, 1963. I never would believe that a song could
    cause so much disturbance, but it did. (before Maggie’s Farm)
  • I was riding on a train one time deep in the heart of Mexico.
    A place called Durango, up to San Diego. Anyway, the train was passing a
    town called Monterey. Anyway, I’d fallen asleep before that, I was waking
    up when the train was pulling into the station and stopped.
    And I was gazing into the window which was like a long mirror, you know.
    And I saw this family of about fifteen children get off the train.
    And this old man step on up to the platform to get on the train.
    He was wearing nothing but a blanket and he come down the aisle and took
    a seat across the aisle from me. About … I don’t know how long a time
    that went by, but finally I couldnít help it, I had to turn to look at him.
    And when I turned to look at him I swear both his eyes were on fire,
    they were so hot, burning up. And there was smoke coming out of his
    nostrils. I turned around and glanced back into the mirror. I turned to
    look at him again, I figured that this was the man that I wanted to talk to.
    When I finally could get it together I turned around and he had disappeared.
    (before SeÒor (Tales Of Yankee Power))
  • A few years ago I was over in the South of France where the gypsies have
    their high holy day. Kind of like Christmas to them.
    Anyway, they have … the High Holy Day that the gypsies do celebrate just
    happens to be the particular day I was born. So I went over there to
    check out what they were up to. So I did get over there and I did manage
    to meet the king of the gypsies. A young man who impressed me a great deal.
    He … this man had 16 wives and 125 children, I swear.
    He also had girlfriends on the side. He was the sole commander in chief
    of all the gypsies. Anyway, they just partied for a week [recording breaks
    here] so I was there with them [recording breaks here] one more cup of
    coffee for the road. Black. They put it in a bag and they give it to me.
    And I drifted away.
  • Thank you ladies and gentlemen. On the drums tonight, give him a warm hand,
    Mr. Ian Wallace. On the bass guitar, Jerry Scheff. On the keyboards,
    Alan Pasqua. Lead guitar, Billy Cross. On the violin and the mandolin,
    David Mansfield. On the rhythm guitar, Steve Soles. Tenor saxophone,
    Steve Douglas. On the background vocals, my three favorite young ladies,
    Jo Ann Harris, Helena Springs, Carolyn Dennis. On the conga drums, from
    Detroit, Miss Bobbye Hall. (before Itís Alright, Ma (Iím Only Bleeding))

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
