Endless Night


Springsteen dropped into another studio at the Power Station during the River sessions to jam with Graham Parker & The Rumour, including recording support vocals on "Endless Night". Danny Federici also played organ. According to Christopher Sandford in his book Point Blank, Parker and his band were recording The Up Escalator (in late 1979), when he happened to meet Springsteen at the Navarro hotel, New York. As a third party adds, Jon Landau said "Bruce was wiped out, kaput, doing twelve-hour days at the studio." We talked, then Springsteen came up and asked how Graham was doing. "Knackered," he replied. "Just barely making an album." Bruce immediately laughed and said. "Can I help?" The result, brokered by producer Jimmy Iovine, was this collaboration.
