Info & Setlist | Venue

Second of two separate admission shows, 11:30pm. Opening of an historic five-night (ten-show) residency at the club. Springsteen & The E Street Band had previously played a three-night (six-show) residency here in July 1974. Bottom Line co-owner Allan Pepper was offered the chance to host Bruce and the band at the club by Sam McKeith (Bruce's booking agent at William Morris) one morning by phone. Columbia Records bought a quarter of the 500 tickets available for the stand, a perfect opportunity to expose employees and journalists to the upcoming talent of Springsteen. The show features the first known live performance of "Night", and the earliest known recording of "When You Walk In The Room". Opener "For You" is played by Bruce alone at the piano. "The E Street Shuffle" includes "Having A Party". "Thunder Road" is the slow version with Roy on piano and Bruce on harmonica and vocals. Both "Kitty's Back", which includes a brief snippet of Stevie Wonder's "Nothing's Too Good For My Baby", and "New York City Serenade" are extended 19+ minute renditions. "Rosalita (Come Out Tonight)" includes a snippet of "Theme From Shaft" in the midsection.
