ARABIAN NIGHTS - V5 uncirculating

Note: V1 was probably recorded at Mike Appel’s office, New York in April 1972. V2 was recorded at the John Hammond audition at CBS Studios on May 3, 1972. V3 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. V4 is from a downstream source and of weaker sound quality. Springsteen returned to the song on June 27 and may have recorded a full band take (V5), which remains uncirculated.
