Disc 2 track 8 of The River, 1980.
Drive All Night by Bruce Springsteen on Grooveshark

The song was written around 1977 and considered for Darkness On The Edge Of Town. Parts of the song were first heard in public at Passaic's Capitol Theater on New Year's Eve 1977 during the so-called 'Sad Eyes' interlude in "Backstreets", and continued to be utilised as such during the Darkness On The Edge Of Town Tour. It was then premiered in October 1980 during The River Tour and played just 22 times that tour before being retired from the live catalogue for over 24 years. It was resurrected during the solo acoustic Devils & Dust Tour in November 2005, played eight times by Springsteen alone on the piano, although he was accompanied by Clarence Clemons and Steve Van Zandt just the once, in Hollywood, FL. The full-band version returned during the Magic Tour in 2008 in Gothenburg, Sweden, and was played three times that tour, and twice during the Working On A Dream Tour in 2009. It was played during the Wrecking Ball Tour, with Jake Clemons on saxophone.
