Info & Setlist | Venue

One show, double bill, with Springsteen & The E Street Band headlining and Orphan opening. The Buzzard: Inside the Glory Days of WMMS and Cleveland Rock Radio by John Gorman (2007) states that "the club was a little over half full, with a smattering of college students from the Jersey Shore and Philadelphia," which explains Bruce asking if anybody was from Jersey before "Rosalita (Come Out Tonight)." It also states that Kid Leo was invited to this show as a guest by Columbia Records, but had no interest in attending (by the time Bruce returned four years later he had changed his mind). Highlights include a striking rendition of Chuck Berry's "You Never Can Tell" and the last known (and probably tightest) live performance of "Tokyo", which by mid-'74 seems to be morphing into a new title with altered lyrics sometimes called "Sleepytown". "The E Street Shuffle" includes "Having A Party". Most (possibly all) of this 100-minute show was recorded by WMMS-FM in Cleveland, then edited to fit into a 60-minute time schedule and broadcast for the first time on June 5 at 10.00pm -11.00pm. There were approximately 40 minutes (four to six songs) of the performance not broadcast and none of the unbroadcasted material is in circulation, if indeed it ever survived the editing room. Based on other contemporary setlists, the songs likely edited out were "Does This Bus Stop At 82nd Street?", "New York City Serenade", "Kitty’s Back", and maybe "It's Hard To Be A Saint In The City".
