Notes

+ Brucebase (31.12.1980): Soundboard tape. Last known version of "Rendezvous" until 1999 and the live premiere of "Held Up Without A Gun". A tremendous show and one of the longest known with an astonishing 38 songs. The soundboard recording is released on CDs "Nassau Night" (Crystal Cat) and "Midnight Lightning" (Seagull) and on CDR "In The Midnight Hour" (Great Dane). Audio recording of “4th Of July, Asbury Park (Sandy)” from this show was officially released on the Live 1975-85 box set. In addition, that night’s performance of “Merry Christmas Baby” was officially released on 7”/12” vinyl in 1986 (as well as on the Very Special Christmas Various Artists benefit sampler LP/CD); “Rendezvous” was officially released on Tracks in 1998, and “Held Up Without A Gun” was officially released on the Essential Bruce Springsteen bonus CD in 2003. About 14 minutes worth of amateur film footage shot from the audience - including “In The Midnight Hour” New Year’s countdown and the first seconds of 1981, with Bruce spraying champagne all over the front row - is circulating among collectors. Thanks to Lost In The Flood for the info.


A 26 track professionally mixed master recording is also available but many songs have fadeouts. There is also a whistling / whining noise audible during quieter moments. However, it does include the complete "The Price You Pay" - the closing harmonica solo is edited on Crystal Cat's "Nassau Night". This recording was mixed by an assistant engineer at the Record Plant and here's the information directly from him: "I was working as an assistant engineer at the Record Plant, and we recorded a number of shows on the tour for a live album. When they came back to Los Angeles, Toby Scott was starting to mix. I asked him if he would allow me to do a mix and evaluate my skills. He let me use the 24 track masters to do one song. He liked what I did and said if I want to play some more I could. I had forgotten about the tapes until a few days ago while going through some old boxes." Available on: "Nassau Coliseum - From Master Tapes" (Ev2).
