Bruce played the song 18 times
1982-04-11 - BIG MAN'S WEST, RED BANK, NJ
With John Eddie & the Front Street Runners. Set includes the first known Springsteen performance of "Long Tall Sally".
1982-05-02 - THE STONE PONY, ASBURY PARK, NJ (Cats on a Smooth Surface)
With Cats On A Smooth Surface. This was the start of a series of shows which grew in popularity and became well attended. Most of the songs that were performed with Bruce on any given night were either songs the band knew or quickly rehearsed with Bruce backstage at the Pony. He would then join them onstage after the last set at 2:30 AM where he, even at that hour, would put on an amazing show. Truly inspirational and energetic even though at that hour there would usually be thirty or forty people left in the audience (at the earlier jams) before Bruce took the stage. After the third or fourth time that he sat in with Cats, word that he was making regular appearances Sundays at the Pony quickly got out and the regular crowd of about two-hundred people grew to a capacity crowd of over eight-hundred -- and that was every week whether he showed up or not. All local and national media had ongoing blurbs of his jams with Cats but neither the band nor the Stone Pony did any special advertising to exploit the fact that he played with them so regularly. The band felt privileged to have him there with them and would never sour that relationship.
1982-05-23 - THE STONE PONY, ASBURY PARK, NJ (Cats on a Smooth Surface)
With Cats On A Smooth Surface. This date was previously listed as being at the Fast Lane, but the Cats did not play at that venue at this time - they had the Sunday night residency at the Stone Pony. Interestingly, it was a fledgling Bon Jovi band that was the resident artist at the Fast Lane, and he would jokingly complain about the lack of audiences at the Fast Lane on those Sunday nights blaming it on Bruce playing with Cats at the Pony and taking all the crowds from him.
1982-07-23 - EAST FREEHOLD SHOWGROUNDS, FREEHOLD, NJ (Sonny Kenn)
Bruce joins Jersey Shore legends Sonny Kenn & The Wild Ideas on stage at the Monmouth County Fair. Performing with The Starfires in 1965, Sonny Kenn even opened for Jerry Lee Lewis. At the time, however, Kenn was working in a musical instrument store in Red Bank by day, before playing with The Wild Ideas in various Shore bars and clubs at night. Before jumping on stage, Bruce watched events at the County Fair, wearing blue jeans, a flannel shirt, and a CAT baseball cap. Songs performed include "Sweet Little Sixteen" and "Land of 1000 Dances". Not long after this performance, Springsteen wrote and recorded "County Fair", perhaps, in part, inspired by this evening.
