Videos of the day: Bruce Springsteen – Prove It All Night 4 great versions
The live version of “Prove It All Night” from Capitol Theatre, Passaic, NJ. 19-9-1978 … is my fav Bruce song (along with “Thunder Road” from “live/ 1975-85” box). But I need to show 4 versions in this post.
Before any formal facts.. lets start with a great versions from Barcelona – 2002
(from the DVD – Live In Barcelona)
Bruce’s Winterland-78 concert is by many fans & “concert tape collectors” regarded as one of his best shows ever… It is indeed a cornerstone in any collection of concert bootlegs (regardless of artist). Number 2 on my list of the best Springsteen’s concerts I’ve collected (and.. yes, I’ve got a decent collection).
Here is a BRILLIANT – Prove It All Night:
Racing In The Street:
FM Broadcast (KSAN radio) and soundboard tapes – this is a master reel recording and includes three tracks not broadcast. What can you say! The versions of “The Promised Land” and “Prove It All Night” are exceptional and “Backstreets” is better than that. Probably the most famous show Bruce will ever do. It should be noted that the source tape appears to run slightly slow. Released on CD ‘Live At Winterland’ (Golden Stars), ‘Live In The Promised Land’ (Great Dane Records), ‘Winterland Night’ (Crystal Cat) and most recently (and in best quality) on CDR ‘Prodigal Son at Winterland – 25th Anniversary Remaster’ (Prodigal Son). This is a remaster of ‘Winterland Night’.
