This is an out take from the album "Hold On" which was recorded in April of 1980, 32 years ago at the time of this posting. Hard to believe. The entire album was recorded live in the studio. This vocal was done using what they called "The Bruce Booth", as it was set up for Springsteen. He was recording "The River" at the time, and we used Studio A twice when he was off. "You Cannot Win" was also done in this booth. We used Studio B for the rest of the album, where we shared the setup with The Clash. It is missing a guitar solo which was to be added later; this is a reference mix. It is the only recording of this song that there is, with exception to what is laying around in a warehouse somewhere in New Jersey.
