She's The One notes

SHE'S THE ONE - V1 6:17 BIS / WAR / ET / BTRS / BTRCS
SHE'S THE ONE - V2 4:22 ESRR / BTRS
SHE'S THE ONE - V3 3:36 BORN TO RUN

Note: The earliest audio-circulating live performance was at Avery Fisher Hall in New York on October 4, 1974. V1 was recorded on October 16, 1974 at 914 Sound Studios, Blauvelt, New York. Acording to studio logs, the next take (V2) was recorded on May 4, 1975 at the Record Plant, New York, which was shorter and added lyrics in the final verse that were eventually used in "Backstreets". Conversely, Springsteen imported Contessa's beauty secrets from "Santa Ana"; "French cream won’t soften those boots, baby French kisses will not break your heart". On July 19, after all the tracks for Born to Run had been completed, Springsteen brought in a new 2nd verse and bridge, "and just one kiss she fills them long summer nights with her tenderness, that secret pact you made, back when her love could save you from the bitterness", completely changing the song from a fight with his girlfriend to a magical love song. Springsteen's vocal was added to complete the track V3 on July 25 for the album.

‘She’s The One’ seems to have been a song Springsteen did not resolve to his satisfaction till the very last session for Born To Run, in late July 1975. And yet, it was a song he had been playing nightly since early October 1974 – when he also recorded the original studio version that appeared on the legendary E Ticket vinyl boot. Nor did the arrangement of the song change in any meaningful way in the interim. It stayed a ‘Mona’-esque take on that Bo Diddley beat which was in some quarters single- handedly held responsible for a perceived slide in American morals in the late fifties. It was the lyrics that tortured him, as she had.
vocals for STO and stringd for JL came down to last min
