Note: According to Jimmy Iovine and Jon Landau, "Streets of Fire" was nailed early in the sessions in a live performance on June 24, 1977, with only minor overdubs added later. Minor parts were recorded at either Atlantic or The Record Plant on August 24 and 30. It was sequenced as track two on side one for the aborted "Badlands" release in October. There are no alternate versions, but the guitar solo and the vocals for the final verse and outro were overdubbed on December 6, 12 and 29, 1977 at The Record Plant, with work completed in 28 takes. Mixing was completed on April 5, 1978 by Chuck Plotkin. Of the ten final tracks, only "Something In the Night" (June 1), Racing In the Street" (August 30) and "Prove It All Night" (September 16) were completed before "Streets of Fire". "The Promised Land" gave up it's spot, when Bruce had Steve Van Zandt add his guitar solo in May 1978. Mixes without the December overdubs make up version 1. Note that v1b from 'Lost Masters Vol. III' and 'The Unbroken Promise' were both clocked at 3:36, because both faded in 14 seconds into the track, while v1c, 'Original Darkness Mixes' and it's clone, 'Heart of Darkness' both had a 7 second double count-in deducted, while 'Luther' only had 1 second of it included.
