bruce springsteen - prove it all night

filmed at Capitol Theatre, Passaic, NJ. 9.19.1978

i’m too young to remember James Brown at the T.A.M.I. show, the Stones in 1969, or Dylan in 1966, but I was lucky enough to see some of those 1978 Springsteen dates, and to get the sense of them you’ve got to watch an entire show. if you have time—and what else are you doing that’s more fun?—check out this one here from 1978, in Largo, Maryland.
