Notes:

– “Janey Don’t You Lose Heart” was first time played with a full band on this tour.

– “In the Midnight Hour” is a song originally performed by Wilson Pickett in 1965 and released on the 1965 album of the same name, also appearing on the 1966 album The Exciting Wilson Pickett. It was composed by Pickett and Steve Cropper at the historic Lorraine Motel in Memphis where Martin Luther King, Jr. would later be murdered in April 1968. Pickett’s first hit on Atlantic Records, it reached #1 on the R&B charts and peaked at #21 on the pop charts… (Read more)

Info from Brucebase:

1972-01-21 – THE CAPTAIN’S GARTER, NEPTUNE, NJ

BOTTLE OF RED WINE (3:58) / YOU KNOW MY LOVE (11:56) / WHY’S IT SO HARD? (11:34) / CONFESSIN’ THE BLUES (13:50) / SWEET MISS SALLY (9:32)

“One show, triple bill, with The Sundance Blues Band opening for Inferno and headliner Ruby Falls & The Rock City Band. This was the opening of a three-night residency for the Sundance Blues Band, and the group’s only-ever performances at this venue. The line-up of the Sundance Blues Band for this residency was Southside Johnny, Van Zandt, Tallent, Lopez and David Sancious. Springsteen, who had only just returned from a month-long stay in California, joined the band onstage for elements of this and the following two nights shows.

The above-mentioned setlist is taken from an audience recording of very good to excellent quality that is close to soundboard standard and makes for enjoyable listening. Although the audio has now been positively linked to this residency, it is not yet established from which of the three nights it emanates. There are discernible edits between songs so this may be a “compilation” of material from one or more of these three nights. There doesn’t sound as if there are more than a few dozen people in the audience, consistent with the group being the early evening opener for this residency.

Vini Lopez handles the lead vocal on Eric Clapton’s “Bottle Of Red Wine”. Steve Van Zandt provides the Greg Allman-ish vocal on Willie Dixon’s “You Know My Love” (mentioned as being inspired by Otis Rush’s cover version). A highlight is the mesmerizing “Why’s It So Hard?”, written by Springsteen but sung here by Southside Johnny (there’s no Bruce-led vocal rendition in circulation). David Sancious’ organ playing on this track is nothing short of spellbinding. Springsteen provides the lead vocal on Walter Brown’s immortal “Confessin’ The Blues” and John Lee Hooker’s boogie romp “Sweet Miss Sally”. Bruce is playing rhythm guitar on all tracks. This material tends to circulate under a variety of dates, sometimes with audio from other 1971 shows added on.”
