Jon's Jam

JON'S JAM - V1 uncirculating
IT'S A SHAME - V2 3:12 PROMISE

Note: An unknown composition before the official release of The Promise. V1, recorded June 14, 1977 at Atlantic Studios, features Jon Landau on drums, and Bob Chirmside (Bruce's road manager between '75 and '81) on bass; V2 overdubs a modern horn section of Barry Danielian (trumpet), Stan Harrison (tenor sax), Dan Levine (trombone), Ed Manion (baritone sax) and Curt Ramm (trumpet). Early working title may be "Jon's Jam", as found in the studio logs. Music later adapted for "Prove It All Night", according to Bruce. Brucebase mini-editorial: If Southside Johnny and Gary US Bonds had heard a demo of this, they would have been fighting it out in the parking lot for who got to record it.
