Notes from info file:
This is the fourth performance from the legendary Bottom Line Series in New York. It was captured during the early show on August 16, 1975. Joe Kivak was able to document this magical moment in Bruce Springsteen's history, being on the heels of the release of Born To Run. These shows were among the best when a young Bruce Springsteen & his almighty E Street Band were on the brink of conquering the world! This contains the first live performance of "It's Gonna Work Out Fine." "Rosalita" is incomplete, as well as an edit in "E Street Shuffle" and Kitty's Back." In spite of this not being perfect for completeness the sound is excellent for the most part! According to BruceBase the circulating copy was muddy and less than deal quality. If that's the copy you have in your collection this will certainly qualify as a major upgrade. Fanatic Records & Mr Anonymous present the Kivak Master Series!! Enjoy! Rob Oslan - Fanatic Records

Notes from info file: (about the two additional tracks)
PLEASE NOTE, THIS IS A REVISION ADDING THE MISSING TRACK "QUARTER TO THREE". When I originally posted this show, there was a mix-up with the recordings and to make a long story short, Joe Kivak recently sent me the missing track. On the first version I faded out "Up On The Roof" which is incorrect. So with this revision I'm posting the correct transition between the last two tracks with "Quarter To Three" being track 6 and
appropriately faded at the end. Rob Oslan – Fanatic Records.
