Info & Setlist | Venue

One show, with Steel Mill the sole act on the bill. This was a replacement concert for a cancellation of the musical Hair. There are three critical clues during the performance that, when combined, powerfully point to the true location and date of this show. Firstly, Bruce’s dedication to the "West End Fire Department" signifies a Long Branch or close proximity location. Secondly, the distinct sound of wooden side bleachers being stomped during the final song signifies it’s indoors and it's a gymnasium (not a theatre or concert hall). Thirdly, Bruce recites the opening line of James Taylor's song "Sweet Baby James" during "Garden State Parkway Blues" this places the show no sooner than late March, 1970. Consequently this audio can, to a high degree of probability, be identified as coming from this April 24 show. "Funky Broadway" includes the "Soul Freakout" section.
