Early demo #1
Da da da da...
This is a practice solo acoustic demo recorded at Springsteen's home in Colt's Neck, NJ,
sometime between mid-Sep 1981 and May 1982 (most probably 1981), following the end of
The River tour. This short harmonies version is an early incarnation of the song. It is an
unprofessional home cassette recording, and it appears on The Lost Masters Vol. 10
Check out early demo #2, which is another practice demo from
the same period, and the Nebraska demo version, which is
professionally recorded and much more developed.
Also check the album's version (more details), the live
versions (live 21 Jun 1985 version,
live 11 Aug 1999 version, and
live 25 Jun 2005 version), and the cover versions
(The Smithereens' version,
Raul Malo's version, and
Kirk Kelly's version).
