Info & Setlist | Venue

First of two shows, double billing, with Springsteen and band opening for headliner The Paul Winter Consort. Opening show of a four-night (eight-show) residency at the small ~400 capacity club on Long Island. Club manager Michael Epstein had booked Springsteen in November 1972 because the owner of My Father's Place had a son who was married to Mike Appel's sister. Epstein thought Springsteen was a solo folk singer, so he placed Bruce on the bill with Paul Winter's quiet, India-influenced band. There was a small contingent of New Jersey shore area locals who came to the show each night specifically to listen to Springsteen, so the four nights proved to be a clash of musical as well as audience styles, in Epstein's words, "fifty partying Asbury Park hippies dancing on tables and 300 middle-aged suburbanites trying to meditate."
