Info & Setlist | Venue

One show, triple bill, with The Bruce Springsteen Band supporting headliner Cactus. The Paul Butterfield Blues Band was originally scheduled to headline with Cactus second billed. However, Butterfield cancelled a couple of weeks beforehand and Springsteen was substituted. Though not mentioned on the gig poster (see our News tab), also on the bill and opening the show with a 45-minute performance was local band Morning Son (John Mulkins, David Waddle and Steve Knopp). Audio evidence suggests the Bruce Springsteen Band lineup for this show was the core five-piece band, plus the vocal duo of Delores Holmes and Francine Daniels (who'd recently replaced vocalist Barbara Dinkins). Bruce would later utilize the melody from "Talking About My Baby" for his far superior 1972 composition "Janey Needs A Shooter". The ladies are heard on the three Springsteen compositions but not the two cover songs.
