Anticipation ran high as Dave Edmunds hit Big Man's West one Saturday night in September 1982. Touring behind his first post Rockpile solo effort, "D.E.7th", which featured a single penned by a young musician from New Jersey.
Since the show took place during Bruce's club hopping summer at a location he was known to frequent on a regular basis it seemed like a given there would be an appearance. The six song set performed with Bruce at the end of the show is well known and often traded among Bruce collectors.
Less known and not as well bootlegged is the excellent show Dave Edmunds puts on prior to Bruce joining for the six song set.
I'm happy to share here the complete show performed one night when a legend from Wales hooks up with a legend from New Jersey to make some magic in the night.
