1976-02-00 Record Plant (The), New York City, NY

Info & Setlist | Venue


Sessions for Southside Johnny & The Asbury Jukes' work-in-progress debut album I Don't Want To Go Home, produced by Steven Van Zandt, recorded by engineer Jimmy Iovine. Springsteen was present at several sessions, particularly during the recording of his two donated compositions "You Mean So Much To Me" and "The Fever". When Steve Van Zandt invited Ronnie Spector to visit the Record Plant, Springsteen, who is a big fan of her ex-husband Phil Spector, as well as Ronnie & the Ronnettes, promptly re-arranged "You Mean So Much To Me" as a duet for Ronnie and Southside Johnny, which got everybody excited. He had previously finished the arrangement of "Fever For A Girl", now referred to as "The Fever", for Southside Johnny, who sings and plays harp. Clarence Clemons reprises his baritone vocal, which he also performed on Bruce's May 1973 "demo" recording, but used the pseudonym "Selmon T. Sachs" for contractual reasons.
