Info & Setlist | Venue

One show, double bill, with Springsteen and band headlining and Peter Johnson & The Manic Depressives (Joe's unofficial house band) opening. The listed 15-song setlist represents Bruce's complete show. Springsteen's show consisted of two hour-long sets separated by an intermission after "Thundercrack". "For You" is the solo piano version. This is not, as stated, the live debut of "Rosalita (Come Out Tonight)", the song was performed during 1973 and two live recordings from early 1973 are in circulation. However, the song does feature a couple verses of "Shotgun" in the midsection. A claim that one, some, or all three of the Joe's Place shows were filmed first surfaced in the 1992, second edition Charles Cross/Backstreets book Springsteen: The Man & His Music. That book implied the filming had something to do with a Charity Telethon. Evidence has now emerged (printed in The Real Paper on January 16, 1974) that only one song was recorded on the afternoon of Sunday, January 6, for the benefit of Muscular Dystrophy. This was likely a local fund-raiser, rather than a national telethon. Two takes of "Does This Bus Stop At 82nd Street?" were recorded, without an audience. This was filmed with the intention of showing it on local TV in March, perhaps on a benefit show, but it is unclear whether this ever happened.
