Notes:
ONE show, triple bill, with STEEL MILL headlining, MERCY FLIGHT performing second and blues band MARLO MAYS & THE STINGERS opening. Held under the stars on the upper deck of the parking complex. Apparently the concept for this show was modeled after The Beatles memorable rooftop performance in the film “Let It Be” (which was in theatres at the time). This is one the most famous of Steel Mill’s gigs and now firmly a part of Richmond folklore. Promoter Roger Clem provides the immortal MC introduction. This was Steel Mill’s first gig in about a month. Consequently the performance starts off somewhat ragged – which both Bruce and Vini Lopez apologizes for during the show. The above-mentioned 12-song setlist is culled from audio from this show that circulates in several variations. An audience tape of only fair quality has been in circulation for many years. Fortunately a substantially better (very good) quality and more complete specimen of this audience recording has emerged in the collector market over the past couple of years – and it is absolutely worth obtaining. In addition to the new audience source, some soundboard audio has also recently emerged from this show. The soundboard audio is missing two tracks (“The War Is Over” and “Guilty”) found on the audience recording and the soundboard quality isn’t nearly as good as the better of the two audience sources. Importantly though, the soundboard audio includes the show’s encore “Good Lovin’ Woman”, which is not found on the audience audio. None of the above-mentioned audio has ever been released on any mainstream bootleg. The 12-song, 110-minute setlist is not the complete show. It would appear that the audience audio is complete up to an including “We’ll All Man The Guns”. There is then a 2 – 4 song segment of the show that has never circulated from any source. One of the songs definitely performed during this “missing” segment was “The Wind And The Rain”. Both "I Am The Doctor" and "Sweet Melinda" have cropped up in attendee recollections and may have also filled this gap in this show. From an historical standpoint the two most important tracks are “We’ll All Man The Guns” (Bruce introduces it as just written) and Bruce’s 1969 song “Good Lovin’ Woman” (Bruce introduces it as “an old song”). Neither of these two songs are available elsewhere. NOTE: A day or so after this show Springsteen met privately with Mercy Flight's lead singer Robbin Thompson and offered him a position in Steel Mill. After a few days of deliberation Thompson accepted the offer, resigning from MERCY FLIGHT on Aug 23, 1970 and relocating to New Jersey to join Steel Mill the following week

Notes:
STEEL MILL rehearsals, featuring the line-up of Springsteen - Van Zandt – Federici - Lopez and new member (and co-lead vocalist) Robbin Thompson. According to comments by Robbin it wasn’t until the conclusion of this day’s rehearsal that he was absolutely, 100% certain he was in the band, as he waited in an adjoining room while a final vote was taken by all four of the band members (plus manager Tinker West).
