Notes:
From Brucebase: Springsteen (along with fellow EARTH members John Graham and Michael Burke) entered Ocean County College in September 1968. Bruce ended up staying for 3 semesters, dropping out in December 1969 shortly after his parents moved to California. EARTH is believed to have performed several times at Ocean County College during the Sept thru Dec, 1968 period. Springsteen even contributed a piece of poetry to “Seascapes”, the school’s Literary Yearbook. The 26 above-mentioned songs are taken from the only known EARTH-era repertoire listing (see photo on Brucebase). The document is likely to have been created by Springsteen in September or October 1968. The amount of tracks displayed, their sequencing, plus the header and numbering notation by Bruce – all point to this as being an inventory of Earth’s live repertoire of “cover” material. For this reason it is of greater historical significance than an individual gig setlist, particularly in that no EARTH audio is circulating. A few of these songs are performance holdovers from the CASTILES era. Since Earth was a 3-piece band it’s hardly surprising that material from both Cream and The Jimi Hendrix Experience (the era’s two premier 3-piece bands) are abundantly represented. Most are well known songs. However there are several obscurities. “Slow Blues in G” and ‘Fast Blues Break in G” are public domain titles, likely influenced by Eric Clapton’s arrangements during his 1965-66 Bluesbreakers period. There is also Donovan’s protest anthem “The War Drags On”, plus Cream’s “Swlabr” and ‘Toad”. “Help Me” is a track from Ten Years After’s 1967 debut LP. “Another Morning” is courtesy of The Moody Blues. From a timeline standpoint the latest released song titles are Steppenwolf’s “Born To Be Wild” (July 68) and Cream’s “Politician” (Aug 68)
