Notes:
ONE show, double bill, with STEEL MILL headlining and LOTUS opening. The above-mentioned partial setlist is taken from a circulating 58-minute soundboard recording of good-very good quality. This audio has only partially circulated on a bootleg "Don't Sweat It" Vinyl in limited quantities and in poor quality. It is circulating in complete form via private CDR sources (usually identified only as “summer 1970” or “mid-1970” or “unknown location”). The audio seems to include the first 3 songs of the night and the final two songs, with “Run Shaker Life” cut very prematurely. This would represent only about half of a normal show’s length. Following a nice show-opening “Dancing In The Streets” Springsteen jokingly comments “it’s all happen’ out there in the street, so what are we doing in here”? During the epic “Garden State Parkway Blues” Bruce mentions driving through Ocean Grove on a Sunday, as well as the fireworks at the Freehold Raceway – both comments draw a noticeable crowd reaction. These comments indicate this audio is from an indoor summertime performance in the Asbury Park area. When combining the sound of the audience size, the track listing and the very limited gig bookings the band had during the summer of 1970 – these combined offer a strong likelihood this audio is from either this night or the following night’s Sunshine In show.

Notes:
A rare performance by FUNKY DUSTY & THE SOUL BROOM, a short-lived (summer to fall 1970) 4-piece band, consisting of Garry Tallent (Funky), Steve Van Zandt (Dusty), Southside Johnny and (depending on circumstances) either Bobby Williams or Vini Lopez on drums. Apparently Bruce was in attendance for this show and a jam followed. At the time both Tallent and Williams were members of GLORY ROAD (along with David Sancious and Bill Chinnock), Van Zandt and Lopez were members of STEEL MILL and Southside Johnny was a member of MAELSTROM. This Funky Dusty & The Soul Broom side-project was a catalyst for what became THE BIG BAD BOBBY WILLIAMS BAND in late 1970 and SUNDANCE BLUES BAND in spring 1971. Note: Funky Dusty & The Soul Broom was singer Jeannie Clark’s backing band at the Clearwater gig on 11/09/70.
