1972-02-25 Back Door (The), Richmond, VA

One show, with The Bruce Springsteen Band the sole act on the bill. The seventh of nine shows held at the club during February. This fifteen-song setlist is likely to the be the complete show and is confirmed as emanating from this date. Historically, the most significant track here is "Down To The Riverside" (a.k.a. "Grandpa's Gone Down"), which is about the death of Springsteen's grandfather. This tape represents the only known recording of the song. "Bless My Soul" is also known by the title "You Sure Can Dance". Curiously, the set does seem to include two renditions of "Cowboys Of The Sea", they are two distinct performances and have continuity. The second version opens the encore. Butch Ball at Stillwater Studios in Richmond provided the setlist information.
