Another solid and highly satisfying set from the continuation of the River tour in early 1981. The highlight this night for me is the unusual fifth position inclusion of "The Price You Pay" in a wonderful stripped down arrangement that I had forgotten was ever played. Its a fantastic performance of one of Bruce's least played but most beloved songs. Also notable this night is the always welcome cover of Bobby Fuller's "I Fought the Law," a plaintive (could there be any other kind?) "Wreck on the Highway" and "I'm a Rocker" to open the encore.


/Butterking for JEMS


Another fun show to work on.  As BK said above, "The Price You Pay" is indeed a major highlight of this one, and a nice little combo of "Independence Day" and "I Fought the Law."  And check out the guy yelling out requests for "Lost in the Flood"; poor guy didn't get his wish for another 19 years.
