Title : CIRCUS SONG (PLAYBACK)
Support: 1 7 in.
Catalogue number: COL AS 52
Pressed in: USA
Release period: 1973 (Jun)
This was the second Springsteen's promotional release pressed by the "Playback" magazine. Also in this case the song is somehow unique, infact the Bruce track is an early live version of "Wild Billy's Circus Story" with partially different lyrics which was never issued elsewhere (officially, at least). This release plays at 33 1/3 rpm and is a very rare collectable, too.
Other songs are Down At The Bar (by Loudon Wainwright III) / Little Red Hen Blues (by Taj Mahal) / Smokey Factory Blues (by Albert Hammond)
