01 Hootchie cootchie man

Notes:
DUMMY DATE. The excellent quality indoor soundboard recording of "Hoochie Coochie Man" is found on the CD "THE BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN STORY, VOL 4" (E.ST). The lead vocalist, backing band, venue and recording date on this track is unidentified and may turn out not to have any direct affiliation with Springsteen.

Songs from this show can be found on:

01 Mistress Annie
02 She's leaving
03 Key to the highway
04 Sure can feel the pain

Notes:
ONE show with The Bruce Springsteen Band the lone act on the bill. A typical performance at The Student Prince consisted of three or four 40-minute sets with healthy breaks in between. The above-mentioned partial setlist is taken from a circulating 40-minute audience recording of only fair quality that has never been issued on any mainstream boot. This audio circulates via custom CDR sources, typically alongside some of the audio from the 17/12/71 Rutgers gig. The audio evidence suggests a fairly empty premises for this night’s show. While this is clearly a late period BSB club performance, the precise date and venue is not verified. The Student Prince is the most likely location, however it is possible this audio is from one of the Jan 1972 BSB shows at Captain’s Garter or the 15/04/72 Rutgers show. From an historical standpoint the key tracks are “She’s Leaving” (later recorded as a solo demo – here it’s performed with the band) and the excellent “Sure Can Feel The Pain”.

01 If I were the priest

Notes:
ONE show 9:30PM to 1AM, with the Bruce Springsteen Band the sole act on the bill. A typical BSB gig at this club consisted of four 40-minute sets separated by healthy intermissions (2½ hrs total playing time). In an interview with Ed Sciaky (see 3/11/74 listing in BRUCEBASE) Bruce commented that he played "If I Were The Priest" (which Bruce said he wrote in the late 70 - early 71) at one of the shows during this residence at The Student Prince, although the specific gig is not known and there is no circulating audio of the performance

01 Grandpa's gone down

Notes:
Bruce gives an unadvertised 45-minute SOLO performance (on a grand piano rented specifically for Bruce by promoter Victor Wasylczenko). Headliner for this show was SUNNY JIM, with TUMBLEWEED the primary support act. Bruce performed in between both groups. Bruce ended his performance with a stunning ode to his deceased grandfather, a song Bruce described as having just completed a day or two earlier. This is believed to be the one and only live performance of "Grandpa's Gone Down", a composition known via early Sioux City Music copyright documents - but a song that has not surfaced among the pool of early copyright demos Bruce recorded. The remaining song titles Bruce played during this show are, as yet, unverified. Note: there were two High Schools serving the Freehold area. Freehold Township is not the one Bruce graduated from.

01 When you dance
02 Black widow spider
03 She's a woman
04 Walking the dog
05 The ballad of Jesse James

Notes:
Full set details are not known. ONE show, triple bill, with the 5-member BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN BAND headlining. Undercard acts are SOUTHERN CONSPIRACY and POWERHOUSE. Held at “The Ledge”, a club-coffeehouse located within the school’s Student Union facility. The above-mentioned partial setlist is taken from a circulating 35-minute audience recording of poor quality that has a notorious history of being cannibalized. The MC’s introduction and the first two songs can be found on boot CD “DOWN THE ROAD APIECE” (Golden Stars). The remainder of the audio has never appeared on any mainstream boot but is circulating via private CDR sources, usually with no time-venue identification. Typically the final two or three tracks of this 35-minutes of audio are found combined with audio from an unrelated performance (see 03/12/71 listing in Brucebase). “Walking The Dog” is complete but it usually circulates incomplete. Only the first 3 minutes of “When You Dance” is in circulation. Unfortunately it sounds as if the taper placed his microphone in the middle of a table of student drinkers, so the band’s performance is obscured by close proximity crowd noise and chatting. However the conversation does confirm the venue as being The Ledge. Although it seems likely that more of this performance would have been recorded by this source, only the 35 minutes of audio has surfaced to date. Collectors should note that the remaining 54 minutes of audio found on the “DOWN THE ROAD APIECE” CD is from an outdoor gig at Brookdale Community College on 10/07/71, not from this Rutgers show as that CD’s liner notes claim.

Notes:
ONE show 9:30PM to 1AM, with the Bruce Springsteen Band the sole act on the bill. A typical BSB gig at this club consisted of four 40-minute sets separated by healthy intermissions (2½ hrs total playing time). This was the final-ever BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN BAND gig at The Student Prince. A couple of days following this show Springsteen departed for San Mateo, California to visit his family. At the time of his departure Bruce informed band members that he may stay in California indefinitely, thereby creating an unknown future for all concerned. Further gigs were performed at The Student Prince (WITHOUT Springsteen) on Dec 24th, 25th and 26th (billed as Sundance Blues Band) and on December 31st (billed as “Blue Midnight - formally Sundance Blues”). As it turned out Springsteen remained in California for only a month. Bruce has implied that he performed some solo gigs while in San Mateo, but no specific details or eyewitness accounts have ever emerged. Bruce returned to New Jersey in mid January 1972 – broke, but with a significant cache of new songs. By this stage, however, both Garry Tallent and David Sancious had moved to Richmond, both having accepted jobs as session players for Alpha Sound Studios. The Bruce Springsteen Band was immediately rekindled. Due to Sancious-Tallent commitments at Alpha Studios many of the group’s 1972 performances would take place in the Richmond area.
