Info & Setlist | Venue

Roy plays the piano intro before "The River". "No Money Down" is performed as an introduction to "Cadillac Ranch". "Growin' Up" features the spaceman story. The introduction to "Rosalita (Come Out Tonight)" is the opening lyrics to Jay And The Americans' "Come A Little Bit Closer"; that song also which also includes Roy playing snippets of Bach's "Prelude No. 1 In C Major (BWV 846)" and "Hail To The Chief" during the band introductions. "Detroit Medley" includes "I Hear A Train". Additional information is that "Stolen Car" is certainly on some tapes. A reader sent in the following which seems to clarify the issue, and to our minds lays it to rest "I was at both shows, November 14-15. I checked my memorabilia file and found a yellowed copy of a front-of-the-entertainment-section article from The Houston Post (since bought by the Chronicle) that is a long interview printed November 23, 1980. The interview took place after the second show, Saturday the 15th. Bruce talked about changing the set list during the show "But after we got into the set, I had to stop the guys in the band and say, 'Listen, just forget the list, don't look at it anymore, don't start anything until you hear me call it.' I was calling a lot of 'em — Growin' Up, Crush on You, Fade Away, Stolen Car - different things from last night. That's the way it goes…" So that's a contemporary interview that appears to have been taped (lots of long quotes) where Bruce names four songs from 15 that were different from the previous night. He seems to have gotten it right. None of the four is listed on Brucebase for November 14. I think this is proof that Stolen Car was played on the 15th." Another attendee also confirms that "Stolen Car" was definitely played.
