Info & Setlist | Venue

Listed setlist gleaned from a mixture of newspaper reports and recollections from fans present. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported a 2½ hour show and a near-capacity crowd at this tiny, picturesque venue. A fan (on the Greasy Lake website) recalls 'This was my first Springsteen show and my first trip into Atlanta by myself (I was 18). This unfortunately led to me and my buddies getting lost and missing the first of the show. A guy sitting behind us told us he had opened with "Night". After getting settled in our seats Bruce began the familiar harmonica intro to "Thunder Road". A high energy version followed and this led right into "Born To Run". Since all this happened almost thirty years ago now I can't remember the order in which he played everything but he for sure played "It's Hard To be A Saint In The City" (a great guitar battle between him and Miami Steve), "Blinded By The Light" (he looked over the album cover before starting and said "OK, I got it."), "Backstreets", "Jungleland", an early version of "Frankie" (playing a wooden block with a drum stick for percussion), "4th Of July, Asbury Park (Sandy)" (the angels on their Harleys version) and "Rosalita (Come Out Tonight)". He did both the "Detroit Medley" and "Quarter To Three" for encores and ended the night on his knees screaming, "I'm just a prisoner… of rock & roll!" I've never been the same and wouldn't want it any other way.' Assuming these recollections are accurate, this show features the earliest known version of "Frankie" and first known tour appearance of "Blinded By The Light".
