AND THE BAND PLAYED - V2 uncirculating

Note: Recorded February 19, 1973 at 914 Sound Studios, though historically considered to have been cut at Mediasound Studios, New York in May-June, 1972. Bruce on piano. Performed live occasionally by Bruce during 1973 and early 1974. At some point in 1974 Springsteen composed a list of ten songs that were candidates for inclusion on his third album. A song with the title "Shanghai" is the ninth song on that list, and based on the lyrics we assume that it is actually "Tokyo". In April 1973, Bruce added new lyrics and a refrain, "And The Band Played". Though this was played live sporadically during the next year, studio takes have not been located.
