Info & Setlist | Venue

One show, with The Bruce Springsteen Band the sole act on the bill. This was opening night of 9-show residency that encompassed three of the four weekends in February. Southside Johnny was a guest on the first weekend. However Southside's harp playing is only heard on one track, "Bright Lights, Big City". Bruce handles the harmonica on "I Just Can't Change", one of his better songwriting efforts of 1971. Two other standout songs are "Like A Stranger" and "Make Up Your Mind". The most interesting track is the full band version of "Cowboys Of The Sea", a song that clearly foreshadows the change of lyric style that Bruce was adopting at the time. See our Gallery tab to view a series of photos of Springsteen and the band taken at The Back Door, and our Media tab to hear audio of Bruce's cover of Herman's Hermits' "I'm Into Something Good".
