4TH OF JULY, ASBURY PARK (SANDY)

Live 31 Dec 1980 version


[Spoken intro:] All right!

Well, Sandy, the fireworks are hailin' over Little Eden tonight
Forcin' a light into all those stoned-out faces left stranded on this fourth of July
Down in town the Circuit's full with switchblade lovers, so fast, so shiny, and sharp
And them wizards play down on Pinball Way on the boardwalk way past dark
And the boys from the casino dance with their shirts open like Latin lovers along the shore
Chasin' all them silly New York girls

Oh, Sandy, the aurora is rising behind us
The pier lights our carnival life forever
Love me tonight, because I, I may never see you again
Whoa, Sandy, girl

Well, now, the greasers, they tramp the streets or get busted for trying to sleep on the beach all night
And them boys in their spiked high heels, ah, Sandy, their skins are so white
And me, well, I just got tired of hangin' in them dusty arcades, bangin' them pleasure machines
Chasin' the factory girls underneath the boardwalk, where they all promise to unsnap their jeans
You know that tilt-a-whirl way down on the south beach drag
Well, I got on it last night and my shirt got caught
And that Joey kept me spinnin'
I didn't think I'd ever get off

Oh, Sandy, the aurora is rising behind us
The pier lights our carnival life on the water
Now, I remember runnin' down the beach at night with my old boss's daughter
Well, he ain't my boss no more, Sandy

Now, Sandy, the angels have lost their desire for us
You know, I spoke to 'em just last night and they said they won't set themselves on fire for us anymore
Every summer when the weather gets hot
They ride that road down from heaven, on their Harleys they come and they go
And you can see 'em dressed like stars in all the cheap little seashore bars
And parked making love with their babies out on the Kokomo
Well, the cops finally busted Madame Marie for tellin' fortunes better than they do
This boardwalk life for me is through
You know, you ought to quit this scene too

Oh, Sandy, the aurora is rising behind us
The pier lights our carnival life forever
Love me tonight and I promise that I'll love you forever
Swear!

Whoa, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
How about it?


Info

The above lyrics are for the live 31 Dec 1980 performance of 4TH OF JULY, ASBURY PARK (SANDY) at Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum in Uniondale, NY, during The River Tour. The song was played in a full-band arrangement. This live 31 Dec 1980 performance of 4TH OF JULY, ASBURY PARK (SANDY) was included on the Live/1975-85 box set in 1986.

The 31 Dec 1980 Show

Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band rounded up the 1980 leg of The River Tour with three concerts at Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum, on 28, 29, and 31 Dec 1980. The three shows were recorded live in the Record Plant Remote Truck by Toby Scott, assisted by David Bianco and Jim Scott, and later became one of the main sources for the Live/1975-85 box set which includes six recordings from these shows. Four additional recordings were released as B-sides and on compilation albums.

Clocking in at almost four hours of music with 38 songs performed, the 31 Dec 1980 show is one of the longest performances that Bruce Springsteen has given. The legendary New Year's Eve concert has a long history on bootlegs, first on vinyl and later on CD. Both soundboard and audience recordings have long circulated among collectors, in addition to about fourteen minutes worth of amateur film footage shot from the audience.

In March 2015 the complete 31 Dec 1980 concert was officially released on Live.BruceSpringsteen.net (see the "Official Live Downloads" section below for more details). The 24-track master tapes that were recorded live in the Record Plant Remote Truck were mixed by Toby Scott, assisted by Rob Lebret, at Thrill Hill and mastered by Adam Ayan at Bob Ludwig's Gateway Mastering Studios in March 2015. They were meticulously transferred and restored via the Plangent Process, the same analogue tape restoration technique used to good effect for the November 2014 box-set release of Springsteen's first seven albums. The audio quality of this transfer surpasses all previously available bootlegs of the show.

The Live/1975-85 Box Set

With the Born In The U.S.A. album and tour, Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band reached the highest level of rock stardom. Columbia Records was expecting a follow up studio album and tour that would, like it's predecessor, achieve a huge commercial success. Instead, Springsteen released Live/1975-85, an over-three-hours-and-a-half-long live compilation album consisting of 40 tracks recorded at various concerts between 1975 and 1985.

Bruce Springsteen -- Live/1975-85
Bruce Springsteen -- Live/1975-85

The set was produced by Jon Landau, Chuck Plotkin, and Bruce Springsteen, and hit the stores on 10 Nov 1986. It was released as a box set with either five vinyl records, three cassettes, or three CDs. Live/1975-85 is the first album to be credited to "Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band" instead of "Bruce Springsteen" only.

The highly-anticipated live album generated advance orders of more than 1.5 million copies, making it the largest dollar-volume pre-order in the history of the record business at the time. Record stores around the country found fans waiting in line on Monday morning before opening and one New York store reportedly sold the album right off the back of the delivery truck. The album debuted at #1 on the Billboard album chart and also became the first five-record set to reach the top 10 and the first to sell over a million copies. Live/1975-85 is the second-best-selling live album in U.S. history based on RIAA certification. It has been certified by the RIAA for 13 times platinum, trailing only Garth Brooks' Double Live.

Official Live Downloads

Prior to the High Hopes Tour, Bruce Springsteen's management announced a new service allowing fans to download concert recordings approximately 48 hours after each show. The initial plan required fans to purchase a special USB wristband, which could then be used to download a single High Hopes Tour show of the purchaser's choice and also functions as a regular reusable USB flash drive. The wristband, which could be purchased online or at the concert venue, was priced at $40. Following some negative response from fans over the high cost for the wristband, Springsteen's management subsequently announced a separate cheaper option for purchasing shows directly, without the need for the wristband. The shows were available for purchase and download via Live Nation, Bruce Springsteen's concert promoter, priced at $9.99 for MP3 and $14.99 for FLAC. Audio recordings for 31 of the 34 High Hopes Tour dates (all except 16 Feb 2014, 06 Apr 2014, and 03 May 2014) were released as such and they were available until 30 Jun 2014.

On 17 Nov 2014, Live.BruceSpringsteen.net was launched. It's a new addition to the official website, serving as an online store offering high-quality live concert recordings as well as high-resolution digital releases of Springsteen's album catalog. The download store is powered by Nugs.net in cooperation with Columbia Records. Audio recordings for 30 of the 34 High Hopes Tour dates (all except 16 Feb 2014, 06 Apr 2014, 03 May 2014, and 18 May 2014) were re-released on the new download store in multiple formats, including MP3, lossless CD-quality FLAC or ALAC, and 24-bit HD FLAC or ALAC or MQA, as well as audio CD-R with custom artwork. Nugs.net adopted the MQA (Master Quality Authenticated) format on 24 May 2017. From then on, all Bruce Springsteen live concert recordings, including the previously released ones, became also available in MQA.
