Mostly when I'm in the Lake, I'm listening to Bruce at the same time. Right now I am listening to New York City Serenade from The Wild, The Innocent & The E Street Shuffle. Which Bruce song are

The Promised Land - Survival Bowl.

Live 75-85: Candy's Room... I'm listening on laptop in work.

When you think about 'Good Rockin' Tonight' from 1978 as my favorite opener of all time than the contrast with this opening version can't be any bigger. Stripped of everything except a piano and a voice. Brilliant, powerful and effective. My 2nd favorite opener of all time!

"ever want something you couldn't ever have?" (yes, my whole life.....)

Just like how the 11/4/76 show is probably overall better than this totally fantastic show, this has this version of this song in it, and the same way that the 12/31/75 show is much better than the 12/28/75 show, it doesn't have nearly as great a (slow) Tenth Avenue Freeze-Out to me.

Anyway I love this song so much

I never listen to ANY other version of this anymore, ha

'I had no idea at this point that it was an outtake and this was it’s first release in any format'.

It was not the first release, as Be True was already released as a B-Side of the second River album single (Fade Away in U.S.A./Canada, Sherry Darling and Cadillac Ranch in Europe, I Wanna Marry You in Japan).  (I Wanna Marry You as a single... 'baffling choice' is not even an apt description (even if I have come to re-appreciate the song-and the whole River album in general- over the years)).

This all said, the (fantastic) live version of Be True from Detroit 1988 was for many fans the first time they heard the song.
