1986-01-19 - THE STONE PONY, ASBURY PARK, NJ

MY HOMETOWN / THE PROMISED LAND / BADLANDS / DARKNESS ON THE EDGE OF TOWN / STAND ON IT / RAMROD / TWIST AND SHOUT

'Jam '86 Hometown Benefit' for the 3M Plant in Freehold with the full E Street Band, minus Nils Lofgren and Roy Bittan. On the audience tape, the big question is: "Is it Bruce or is it the taper?" and most of the time it's the taper. On the other hand, he is in a fine voice and a die hard fan who knows all the lyrics. On a more serious note: the show includes a unique "Stand On It" with a saxophone solo in the middle.

1986-05-29 - EAST FREEHOLD PARK, FREEHOLD, NJ

Cancelled concert, never re-scheduled. This was to have been the Jersey Artists For Mankind outdoor benefit to promote the May 16 release of the "JAM" single. Despite the fact that neither Springsteen or any E Street Band members were promoted or billed for the show, rumors began circulating in mid April that Bruce was going to show up and play, which saw town officials revoke the organizers concert permit on April 22. The Park could only accommodate 12,000 and there were fears that, even without tickets, 100,000 people might turn up in sleepy Freehold once the Springsteen rumor spread widely. As it was revealed much later, Bruce had not committed to perform - but had not ruled it out either and was leaning towards making an appearance if things could be kept under wraps. They couldn't.

1986-10-00 - WNET STUDIOS, NEW YORK CITY, NY

Director Hart Perry films interviews with Springsteen and John Hammond (both separately and together), as part of a work-in-progress documentary about the career of Hammond. This was early in the film's production schedule. However the untimely death of Hammond in October 1987 ended up causing a delay in the completion of the project.
