Notes:
One show, double bill, with STEEL MILL headlining and GODZILLA opening. The above mentioned 11-song setlist is believed to be the complete show and the entire performance is circulating in very good to excellent soundboard quality, although the material has a notorious history of being cannibalized, re-sequenced and incorrectly dated. Be aware that this show is sometimes listed as a 12 or 13 song performance if "Honky Tonk Women" and/or "Turn On Your Lovelight" are counted as separate songs. Parts (or the whole) of this show are found on several other boots, sometimes with incorrect venue/date information.

Notes:
ONE show, double bill, with STEEL MILL headlining and NATIONAL DEBT opening. A pre-concert newspaper article in the Middletown Courier mentions two shows scheduled for this night - but none for the following evening. These two shows were ultimately “split”, with one show taking place on this night, and then the following night.

01 Sweet Melinda
02 Oh mama why?
03 He's guilty

Notes:
ONE show, double bill, with STEEL MILL headlining and NATIONAL DEBT opening. This was advertised as the final-ever Steel Mill gig and current evidence supports this. The dissolution of Steel Mill was amicable. Apparently Bruce had informed members in December, prior to a Christmas trip to California, of his desire to explore other musical directions. Speaking of his brief, 5-month (Sept 70 - Jan 71) Steel Mill tenure, vocalist Robbin Thompson has commented: “it was a strange thing. No one really knew why I was in the band….but about half way through (his tenure) I knew the band, as it was, wasn’t going to last, especially me.” The above-mentioned partial setlist is taken from a recently unearthed, very good quality soundboard recording that is now in limited circulation. This material has yet to appear on any mainstream CD boot. The audio features continuity between songs and marks the first-ever appearance of any Springsteen audio from The Upstage. These three songs are culled from early in the set and may possibly be the show’s opening three numbers. This is also the first time a rendition of “Sweet Melinda” has surfaced in nice sound quality. The remainder of the show has not surfaced. (Brucebase)
