Aretha Franklin - WITHOUT LOVE

First performance: 12/05/1977


Coverinfo

hBruce covered the song 3 times in 1977 : 
 

Two concerts tonight were originally scheduled (along with the two shows the following night) as regular Southside Johnny & The Asbury Jukes gigs. However Southside became ill (suffering from a recurring throat ailment) and couldn't perform so Steven Van Zandt came to the rescue by organizing The Asbury Park All-Star Revue - a combination of The Asbury Jukes, The E Street Band, Ronnie Spector and Springsteen. Due to Southside's illness and a lack of time for Van Zandt to prepare to lead, tonight's two shows were rearranged into a single concert starting at midnight. Van Zandt was the lead vocalist (with Bruce on guitar/background vocals) on most of the tracks .

1977-05-13 - MONMOUTH ARTS CENTER, RED BANK, NJ

During both the early (first show) and  Late (second show):  
Two separate admission shows. Independent recollections from those present indicate that Springsteen was on stage for the entirety of both shows. The gigs were originally scheduled as a standard Southside Johnny & The Asbury Jukes gig. However Southside became ill and couldn't perform so Steven Van Zandt came to the rescue by organizing The Asbury Park All-Star Revue - a combination of The Asbury Jukes, The E Street Band, Ronnie Spector and Springsteen. Van Zandt was the lead vocalist (with Bruce on guitar/background vocals) on most of the tracks .

Bruce on the artist

Lyrics

All night long
One night, I could not sleep
For ringing in my ear
A melody began to sing
Oh, at first
The words I could not make out clear
The smog fields lifted away
And this is what I heard them say
It said without love
(Without love)
There's nothing you can do
Yes, it did
It said without love
(Without love)
You're not even you
All night long
He spoke to me
The words of wisdom rang
Beneath his sweet, soft melody
It said, don't you know
(Don't you know)
That a rich man can be poor
If wealth is all he has, hey
Without love
(Without love)
There's nothing you can do
(Do, do, do, do, do)
Don't you know
Without love
You're not even you
(Without love)
Can't you hear me talking to you
(Can't you hear us talking to you)
Without love, oh
The sorrow's even new
Yes, it is
Without love
(Without love)
You're not even you
Hey, yeah
Without love
(Without love)
There's really so much you can do
Yes, it is
(Without love)
Without love
(Without love)
You're not even you
Everybody sing now
Without love
(Without love)
There's so much you can do
(Without love)
Yes, it is
(Without love)
Yes, it is
Without love
(Without love)
You're not even you
Sing it, sing it
One more time
Without love
(Without love)
There's so much you can do
(Without love)
Without love
Do you know you're not even you
Hey, hey, hey
Without you
(Without love)...
