The latest release from the Bruce Springsteen live archives takes him back home.
The concert is from his parochial school, St. Rose of Lima in Freehold, New Jersey, on November 8th, 1996 and tickets were available only to town residents. Springsteen played nine songs he hadn’t previously done on The Ghost of Tom Joad tour, including just the second-ever performance of “When You’re Alone” from Tunnel of Love. But the show’s biggest highlight for most Springsteen collectors is the song “Freehold,” which he wrote specifically for that concert.
The show is available for download now at Live.BruceSpringsteen.net.
