01 Maybelline
02 New Orleans

Notes:
An “end of summer” outdoor show, headlined by the Tinker West - managed local band ODIN. Springsteen (who at this point has completed his first album but has still not put together a touring band) makes an unscheduled guest appearance near the end of the show, singing and performing two or three rock classics with Odin, including the US Bonds chestnut “New Orleans”. A soundboard tape of the entire ODIN performance (including Bruce’s segment) still survives in private hands but is not in circulation.

Notes:
ONE (informal) show, with Springsteen (solo) performing during a late afternoon - early evening “open” Monday at the club. This was the Labor Day holiday and no pre-advertised acts were booked. As fate would have it, resident Greenwich Village folkie David Blue happened to be socializing downstairs at Max’s prior to his own gig later in the evening at The Bitter End. In a 1992 interview in Musician Magazine Springsteen seemingly made reference to this specific performance, commenting: “I used to come down to Max’s Kansas City and play by myself….David Blue came down one night and as I was walking off stage said ‘hey man that was great, come with me’. We got in a cab and went downtown to The Bitter End, where I (first) met Jackson.”

Notes:
ONE (informal) show, with Springsteen (solo) performing an unscheduled “guest set” at a JACKSON BROWNE / DAVID BLUE show. Browne has stated that Bruce played for almost an hour, which would encompass 7 or 8 songs. This was the final night of a 6-night (12-show) residency by Browne and Blue at the club. In a 1979 radio interview Browne commented on his first-ever meeting with Springsteen and the event: “David Blue walks in before the show with this guy in tow – ‘Jackson this is Bruce and…Jackson, you GOTTA hear him...can he do a guest set tonight?’ So I said sure. He (Bruce) went out there for about an hour and proceeded to do the greatest songs I’d ever heard, with just his guitar and (my) piano. When he got off stage I said “man, where the hell have YOU been hiding!”. Bruce performed during the intermission between the Blue and Browne sets. During his recent Hall Of Fame induction speech for Jackson, Bruce thanked Browne for letting him get up and play at this show.
