Can't believe I forgot this sax stuff from Clarence.Nah, I want the sax. The best part about Jungleland is the sax solo. What happened to the sax player after that album? I listened to Darkness on the Edge of Town and I thought it was OK, but too much hard rock and not enough sax and big chorus sing alongs like on Born to Run. Born to Run gives me goosebumps and I didn't really get that from Darkness or The Wild or Nebraska.
Paradise by the C was the only instrumental piece the E Street Band played - 3 times in 1975, about 55 times in 1978 tour, and then a dozen times in the 1988 European Tour.
Don't know which 1978 show this is from.
From a New York entertainment industry site that has ranked 340 songs, updating their 2016 list to now include songs from Western Stars those from Letter to You.
Weighing in on every original, officially released composition — including his latest album, Letter to You, and “I’ll Stand by You.”
119. “Paradise by the ‘C’,” The Ties That Bind. Star time! “Paradise” is Springsteen’s only all-instrumental composition, and it exists solely to put the spotlight on the Big Man. (Don’t he look great? He lost a lot of weight.) For a long time, you only knew about this song if you were there back in the day, or you bought the Live 1975–1985 box set. (Its inclusion was one of the things they got right with that release.) It was played frequently on the ‘78 tour and in Europe in ‘88, but hasn’t surfaced since. For reasons beyond anyone’s understanding, a studio version was included in the The Ties That Bind box set, even though it is highly unlikely the song was actually recorded during that period. It was probably thrown on just because Bruce misses Clarence.
