Note: V1 recorded at Pocketful of Tunes, 39 West 55th Street, New York, NY on February 14, 1972. V2 was probably recorded at Mike Appel’s office, New York in April 1972. V3 was recorded at the John Hammond audition at Studio E Columbia Records building, 6th floor, 49 East 52nd Street, New York City on May 3, 1972. V4a is from a session at 914 Sound Studios, Blauvelt, NY, on June 7, 1972. Each version is a more polished than its predecessor, and leads up to the second take on June 7, a stunning solo acoustic number which was left off the Greetings album. This very same recording was later utilized as a publishing demo by Laurel Canyon. V4b is from a downstream source and of weaker sound quality. Springsteen finished the song V5 on June 27, which is probably a full band take that was set to go on the album, until three songs were bumped to make room for "Blinded By the Light" and "Spirit In the Night". V5 remains uncirculated.
