Sherry Darling

This is what we used to call a "rave-up"--after much investigation, I still can't find out where it was recorded, but it sounds like it was performed live in some South Jersey saloon. The song was originally recorded for "Darkness on the Edge of Town"--but ended up on the subsequent album "The River" instead. The real puzzle is why someone didn't release it as a single and make trillions of dollars.

I challenge you to name the last rock song you heard in which a guy complains that he has to take his girlfriend's mom to the unemployment office and she's talking too much. Ahhh, working class Bruce, that is one reason we loved him.

Once upon a time, I played this tune every single day before I went to work ... it was as good as coffee. :)

*Laughing* can't force it. I don't know why, but I bought "Greetings from Asbury Park" when it first came out and was sold! No one of my friends had heard of him, and most hated it. Not Pink Floyd...whom I adore...but man! Like punk, pure fire and sweat.

I also gotta say...anything with Clarence Clemons in it is great in my book.
