Info & Setlist | Venue

First of two shows, double bill, with Springsteen and band headlining and The Wailers (lineup including Bob Marley and Peter Tosh) opening. Albee Tellone remembered that the Wailers were: Bob Marley, Peter Tosh, Joe Higgs (vocals, percussion), Earl Lindo (keyboards), Aston "Family Man" Barrett (bass) and his brother Carlton Barrett on drums. Albee was told by the Wailers manager that they sent singer/percussionist Bunny Wailer back to Jamaica after their performances in the UK prior to the USA tour. A good quality soundboard recording of "Kitty's Back" from around this date is in circulation, which represents the earliest known performance of the song. Slight variations in the lyrics compared to later performances suggest it is an early recording, and a reference to Basin Street (instead of Bleecker Street) in the second verse indicates it may be from Max's Kansas City. Basin Street East was a famous nightclub in New York City, located just a few blocks from Max's. We've placed the song here, but it could be from any of the shows in the stand.
