A Night With The Jersey Devil

Halloween-themed song, probably recorded during the 2008 Working On A Dream sessions and released as a bonus track on the iTunes version of Working On A Dream, 2009. Outro includes a snippet of Baby Blue (Gene Vincent/Robert Jones).

Happy Halloween 2008! Bruce Springsteen surprised his fans with "a little musical Halloween treat" via the internet. The music video for "A Night With the Jersey Devil," along with a free digital single of the track, dropped at brucespringsteen.net on Halloween. The song is one of the few Springsteen-penned compositions to share a co-writing credit, since it closes with a few lines and notes from Robert Jones and Gene Vincent's "Baby Blue," one of Vincent's 1958 singles. "A Night With the Jersey Devil" also was among the earliest of Springsteen's music videos to be directed by Thom Zimny, who in the decade since has worked extensively with Bruce on all of his major film/video projects.
