Info & Setlist | Venue

After a month’s break in the Darkness Tour, and a few days away from the start of the final tour leg, Bruce convenes a band rehearsal in a converted barn on his farmhouse property on Telegraph Hill Road in Holmdel, NJ. This barn, which Bruce had been using for band rehearsals since mid-1976, was nicknamed the "Telegraph Hill Studio", although in reality it was not a studio - there were no high level room acoustics or recording facilities.

The rehearsal itself would have lasted much longer, so the known audio likely represents only a part of the session. The audio includes three takes of "The Ties That Bind", six takes of "Tonight", one take of the Buddy Holly-ish "I’m Gonna Treat You Right (Wild Kisses)". As it turned out, "The Ties That Bind" made its public live debut at Princeton a few days later. The well-known rehearsal take of "Janey Needs A Shooter" was previously listed here actually dates from May 1979, please see The River - Studio Sessions page for details on this track.
