Notes:
Early show BB: TWO shows, double billing, with Springsteen co-headlining with THE WAILERS (line-up included Bob Marley and Peter Tosh). The Wailers performed first and Springsteen followed. Both acts performed about 60-70 minutes at each show. This was opening of a 6-night (12-show) residency. It was also The Wailers first USA tour and their much-anticipated debut in New York. Many of the tickets to the opening night's shows were given out to press, most of who attended specifically to review The Wailers and didn't hang around for Bruce's performance. The above-mentioned setlist details for both artists EARLY show are culled from an 88-minute audience recording of very good sound quality that has been in circulation (at widely varying levels of completeness) for over 25 years. The original taper seems to have had decent equipment and a choice recording spot. The fact that both artists were recorded may indicate the taper was a Max’s Kansas City employee, rather than a specific fan of Springsteen. This is the only audio of an undercard of a Springsteen show of the post-1971 era that has ever surfaced – and it couldn’t be a more significant one. The Wailers segment of the audio (which has apparently been known by hard core Marley collectors for years) has only come to attention of Springsteen collectors in recently times. It is available on private CDR via Marley/Wailers collector sources. The Wailers segment of audio runs about 38 minutes (including between song tuning) and the Springsteen segment of audio runs about 50 minutes. Both audio segments are of the same quality and sonic characteristics. This is not the complete show audio of either artist, but it probably represents most of each show, bearing in mind this was the early show on a 2 show – 2 artist bill. All 7 of the known Springsteen songs from this early show can be found as tracks 6 thru 12 on the CD "THE UNSURPASSED SPRINGSTEEN, VOL 2” (Yellow Dog). However these 7 songs had an unfortunate, notoriously confusing tape-boot appearance history prior to their appearance of this Yellow Dog CD. The 7 songs have tended to be cannibalised, re-sequenced and/or misidentified as emanating for a variety of different shows. For example, all 7 songs (except “Thundercrack” and “Does This Bus Stop”) are found on the ALL THOSE YEARS boxed set – but they’re re-sequenced. The two songs not found on ALL THOSE YEARS (“Thundercrack” and “Does This Bus Stop”) have tended to turn up identified as emanating from all kinds of sources – and often listed as a soundboard (which it is not). For example, the alleged previously uncirculating soundboard performance of “Thundercrack” found on a radio station cassette tape and subsequently auctioned by Backstreets Magazine several years ago – this has turned out to be nothing more than this same audience source recording. Since it’s “Thundercrack” that most often circulates misidentified, it should be noted that the original taper appears to have made a decision to edit “Thundercrack” (the mid-song band introductions of Lopez and Clemons are heard but Bruce’s introductions of Sancious, Federici and Tallent have been cut completely – unintentionally making it easy to identify this recording). Unedited audio of this performance of “Thundercrack” has never turned up.

Notes:
The above-mentioned very partial setlist from Springsteen’s Late show is culled from a critique by Stereo Review's Steve Simels, who mentioned that Bruce opened with "Spirit" and performed "Route 66" as the result his own shouted request from the audience.

Notes:
Two shows, double billing, with Springsteen co-headlining with THE WAILERS (lineup included Bob Marley and Peter Tosh). The Wailers performed first and Springsteen followed. Both acts performed about 60-70 minutes at each show. The above-mentioned 7-song setlist is from an audience recording of very good quality and is likely to represent an entire show. This recording is definitely from this July residency at Max's and it remains the only circulating audio from this series of gigs at Max's - but it is uncertain which of the 12 shows it is from. July 18 or July 23 are the two dates most often stated. All 7 tracks can be found on the CD "THE UNSURPASSED SPRINGSTEEN, VOL 2 (Yellow Dog).

01 4th of July, Asbury Park (Sandy)
02 Zero and the blind Terry
03 It's hard to be a saint in the city
04 Thundercrack

Notes:
ONE show, with Springsteen and the boys performing along with numerous other artists as part of the CBS Sales Convention, a 3-day, private corporate function that was not open to the public. Artists were not paid except for travel expenses. The above-mentioned setlist represents Springsteen's complete performance. THERE IS NO CIRCULATING AUDIO FROM THIS SHOW. Bruce, who had to be pressured to attend this event, had the misfortune to follow EDGAR WINTER'S WHITE TRASH, who performed a visually spectacular 15-minute set complete with fireworks and smoke bombs - which the partying CBS reps loved. Bruce's performance, on the other hand, was low key and without props. "Sandy" was performed acoustically and "Thundercrack" included the lengthy comedy middle section. Artists were supposed to play only two or three songs and be finished in 15 minutes. Consequently Springsteen's 40-minute set upset some in the audience, who felt he was grandstanding. Even John Hammond later commented "Bruce came onstage with a chip on his shoulder and played WAY too long". NOTE: this private CBS function is often confused with the 1 / 5 / 73 Ahmanson Theater show in Los Angeles (a normal public concert). The CBS-financed promotional film of Bruce's performance at Ahmanson Theatre was shown in its entirety at this Convention - but has not been shown since, except for very brief excerpts.
