Castiles leader George Theiss has mentioned to Brucebase that sometime in 1967, during one of the Café Wha? gigs, The Castiles were professionally recorded and filmed performing their set by a South African film crew who were in New York producing a documentary on the Café Wha?/Village music scene. This was the only professional film footage of the band ever shot (no amateur footage is known). The name of the South African film company and/or its documentary and what, if any, footage of The Castiles may have been in the documentary, or may survive elsewhere, is unknown.

One (afternoon) show with The Castiles headlining. Following this gig Springsteen, along with a couple of members of The Castiles, attend an evening Blues Magoos - The Who - Herman's Hermits triple bill concert at the Asbury Park Convention Hall.

1967-09-16 - THE LEFT FOOT, FREEHOLD, NJ

FIRE / SEE MY FRIENDS / CATCH THE WIND / OMAHA / STEVE'S SONG / JEFF'S BOOGIE / PURPLE HAZE / GET OUT OF MY LIFE, WOMAN / HOLD ON, I'M COMIN' / YOU CAN'T JUDGE A BOOK BY THE COVER / ELEANOR RIGBY / SUZANNE / JEFF'S BOOGIE

One show, double bill, with Purpul Dyneste opening and The Castiles headlining. Each band played two thirty-minute sets ("Purple Haze" opened the second set). This was grand opening night at The Left Foot, an "over 13, under 18" club located in the recreation centre of St Peter's Episcopal Church at 37 Throckmorton Street. The club was opened by Reverend George Errickson and Reverend Fred Coleman, along with two High School students, Harold Breiner and William Cottrell. Patrons sat on cushions. Sadly The Left Foot had a short existence (seven months). This was the first of two 1967 appearances by The Castiles at the club - fortunately both appearances were audience recorded by Left Foot Manager (and St Peter's priest) Fred Coleman on a good quality reel-to reel device. The above-mentioned thirteen-song setlist represents The Castiles' complete song performance in the correct sequence and they are all covers of other artists' material. The inspiration for often-covered "Get Out Of My Life, Woman" was the Paul Butterfield Blues Band version. Similarly the inspiration for Leonard Cohen's "Suzanne" was the 1966 Judy Collins recording. Although Springsteen may have started out in mid-1965 singing mostly background vocals, it is clear that by this point Bruce is the band's focal point. Bruce handles the lead vocals on all songs except "Eleanor Rigby", The Kinks "See My Friends" and The Blues Project's haunting "Steve's Song" (all handled by George Theiss). Tex Vinyard, The Castiles' manager, is heard introducing the band at the start of the second set. Interestingly the group uses The Yardbirds' instrumental "Jeff's Boogie" twice, as both the first set closer and show closer.

No set details known.

One show, with The Castiles performing at an organizational rally dance sponsored by the Freehold Board of Recreation. The rally was an attempt by some enterprising kids to start another teen club in the area. The news clipping is from the September 21, 1967 edition of the Asbury Park Press.

1967-09-30 - THE LEFT FOOT, FREEHOLD, NJ

CIRCUS MARCH / ONE BY ONE / THE LETTER / MR. JONES / SAN FRANCISCAN NIGHTS / OMAHA / HEY JOE / MY GENERATION / LOOK INTO MY WINDOW / WITH A LITTLE HELP FROM MY FRIENDS / WAKE ME, SHAKE ME / MORNING DEW / TO LOVE SOMEBODY

One show, double bill, with The Castiles headlining. This was the band's second gig at the club (see September 16). The above-mentioned 13-song setlist represents The Castiles' complete performance at this show, in the correct song sequence. George Theiss takes the lead vocal on "With A Little Help From My Friends", "San Franciscan Nights" and "The Letter". The former incorporates a brief instrumental rendition of "Winchester Cathedral" at the end. There were also two original compositions performed at this show. Bruce sings lead on "Mr Jones", written by organist Bob Alfano. There is also a Springsteen/Theiss creation, "Look Into My Window", with shared vocals. At one point Bruce calls for requests and someone shouts for "Sidewalk", a Springsteen creation from 1965, however the band plays "San Franciscan Nights" instead. Besides the ancient traditional instrumental "Circus March", other titles (with Springsteen lead vocals) include "Hey Joe", "My Generation", The Coasters' "Wake Me Shake Me" and the evening's encore, The Bee Gees "To Love Somebody". Although having only opened in September 1967, The Left Foot's popularity dropped dramatically in March 1968 when the larger, trendier Freehold Hullabaloo club opened nearby. The Left Foot closed for good in April 1968.

1967-11-00 - FIRST PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH, FREEHOLD, NJ

No set details known.

The date of this show is unknown and it may have taken place as late as mid-1968. However, it appears that photographs may show Paul Popkin wearing a poppy. The poppy is worn in America at the beginning of November, whilst Castiles bandmate Bart Haynes had died only days before, making this date entirely feasible. Springsteen can be seen playing a Fender Telecaster guitar in two of the photographs, the earliest known shots of Bruce with a Fender guitar.

The four known songs include a cover of Vanilla Fudge's version of "Eleanor Rigby", Blues Magoos' "(We Ain't Got) Nothin' Yet" and The Doors' "Break On Through (To The Other Side)" and "The End".
