Info & Setlist | Venue


Springsteen and Roy Bittan fly to Los Angeles in early March to participate in a Quincy Jones-produced recording session for Donna Summer's work-in-progress album. The session took place either on or about March 8. After initially considering "Cover Me" for donation, Bruce opted to give Donna the stylistically similar "Protection". The owner of Summer's record label (David Geffen) was friends with Jon Landau and had asked if Bruce might have a spare song available for her. Springsteen contributed vocals and lead guitar at the session, with Bittan on piano. Several uncirculated alternate different takes of "Protection" were recorded in Los Angeles, included a Summer-Springsteen duet.
