Note: According to author Clinton Heylin, Springsteen adapted the music of "In The City Tonight", which the band practised extensively on March 25, 1979. Five days later, he had composed a hard rocking song, "Night Fire". V1-V4 are from the Telegraph Hill Studios on March 30, 1979. V3 is a partial take of an instrumental section, and on V4, Bruce and Clarence work on the saxophone solo. V1 is a complete take (tape running faster than V2-4), that for some reason is listed as "Untitled Song #2" on E St Records 'Definitive River Outtakes Collection Vol 2', and "Into the Night" on 'River Refineries Revisited'. V2 is also a complete take, running at the correct speed. V5 was recorded at Power Station on June 13, 1979, slower than the rehearsals with a "Because The Night"-style piano introduction. V6 features modern vocals overdubbed in 2015 over the vintage backing. Included in an archival concept list put together by a Sony engineer in 1993, with an original River-era vocal track.
