Bruce (and others) join Roy Orbison for the filming of Roy Orbison & Friends: A Black & White Night, shot in beautiful black and white and broadcast on Cinemax in January 1988. The film is shot in the Cocoanut Grove, a nightclub in the now-torn-down Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles. Orbison's cover of Elvis Costello's "The Comedians" requires three takes. Bruce plays guitar and shares vocals with Roy on "Dream Baby (How Long Must I Dream)", and he also plays guitar on the rest of the songs (sitting on a chair behind Roy on the stage). Backing group is the TCB Band (who accompanied Elvis Presley between 1969-77) including James Burton, who exchanges guitar solos with Springsteen during the show-stopping "Oh, Pretty Woman". This particular performance won the 1991 Grammy Award for Best Male Pop Vocal Performance. Bruce Springsteen, Jackson Browne, Elvis Costello, T Bone Burnett (who also acts as musical director), J.D. Souther, Jennifer Warnes, k.d. lang, Bonnie Raitt, Tom Waits… can we consider that an "all-star lineup"? Yeah, let's.

1987-10-08 - FORT HANCOCK, SANDY HOOK, NJ

BRILLIANT DISGUISE

Film shooting by Springsteen and Director Meiert Avis for the video single of "Brilliant Disguise". For this video Springsteen performed twenty-four takes of a new "live" vocal over the regular album instrumental backing track to the song. The shoot was moved to the mothballed army base at the last minute because the original location (a rented residential kitchen) was unavailable. Meiert Avis has a fascinating article on his website about the video that is a must-read.

1987-10-31 - McLOONE'S RUM RUNNER, SEA BRIGHT, NJ

STAND ON IT / GLORY DAYS / BAD MOON RISING / AROUND AND AROUND / BRILLIANT DISGUISE / TOUGHER THAN THE REST / LIGHT OF DAY / BORN TO RUN / FORTUNATE SON / TWO FACES / LUCILLE / TWIST AND SHOUT

Full E Street Band, except Nils Lofgren and Clarence Clemons, performance. Premieres of "Brilliant Disguise", "Tougher Than The Rest", and "Two Faces", as well as the first acoustic "Born To Run". "Tougher Than The Rest" is close to the recorded version, faster and without the harmonica solos seen on the Tunnel Of Love Express Tour. "Born To Run" omits the harmonica solo played on the tour. "Lucille" includes a snippet of "Hey-Hey-Hey-Hey!". There was another band playing at McLoone's on this night, and very few people got word that Bruce was going to show up but they went to the bar which was already packed, as it was Halloween, and in some cases snuck in as there was no more legal room. Well, the band came in all dressed in black and with masks on. They hit the stage and pulled off their masks and, after throwing the other band off, played the above listed set. The guy who was the lead guitarist in the displaced band jumped off stage grabbed a camera that he luckily had with him and shot some pictures.
