1974-11-25 Sigma Sound Studios, Philadelphia, PA

Info & Setlist | Venue


A bit of a legendary 24 hours in the Springsteen diary. Late on the evening of November 24 Bruce catches a bus from Asbury Park to Philadelphia to spend a couple of days as houseguest of DJ Ed Sciaky. Ed had phoned Bruce earlier that day asking him to come to Philly to meet David Bowie, who was in town recording an album and performing a show. Sciaky and Bruce arrived at midnight and spent the early hours of November 25 with Bowie at Sigma Sound Studios. Bowie had recently recorded a cover of "It's Hard To Be A Saint In The City" but apparently it wasn't finished, so Bruce didn't get to hear it. (It would remain in the vaults until the early '90s when Bowie finally released it.)


incl. Interviews and Recording-sessions.
