    In late August 1975 Born to Run released, I bought it immediately along with “Greetings” and “The Wild the Innocent” .

    I played the 3 of them almost exclusively as I headed towards the 2 shows at the Hammersmith Odeon in November, both of which have now been released.

    At those shows Springsteen opened silhouetted in a blue light and accompanied by Roy Bittan on piano as he sung Thunder Road – then the stage blew up in a sea of white light, out strolled the e Street band and Clarence Clements in an all white suit and all heck broke loose as they blasted in to Tenth Avenue Freeze out.

    Bruce is chasing Clarence around the stage and there is a false end to the song totally different to the album version. As you know I have seen Springsteen many times and his live version of Tenth Avenue Freezeout is different

    Great song, Great album, great Jeep commercial

      MDH,
      I do remember you being a Springsteen super fan.

      It took me longer to find Springsteen, and I have never seen him. For some reason I haven’t been much of a concert goer. I think it has to do with not being all that close to venues. The Melody Tent in Hyannis does have concerts, and I’ve been quite a few times.

      Springsteen is a showman. I love the white suits.

      Is the song longer live? How is it different?

      Glad I posted it.

      Kat, at the second Hammersmith show they sold a poster, the only souvenir at either show. I bought one and took it back to my car. It has been with me ever since, some 45 plus years. It is framed and in my study.

      Of course ol Bruce just got pulled for a DUI, and Jeep has dumped the commercial…whoops

        That was a while back. Why it took since November to get out surprise didn’t me.

        At least he was driving a jeep.
