Berkeley 7/1/78

The earliest show on the Darkness tour to be released in the Archive Series, Berkeley 7/1/78 bristles with energy on songs like “Darkness On The Edge Of Town” and “Adam Raised A Cain,” along with “Night” and “For You,” both of which featured in the early months of the ’78 tour. A memorable encore opens with Bruce’s definitive solo-piano arrangement of “The Promise”, the first live version of the song to be released from 1978, and offers only the second E Street Band performance ever of “Because The Night,” with alternate lyrics.
