Springsteen plays “Rosalita,” sorta, at Max’s Kansas City, 1972

Here’s another clip from that Max’s Kansas City show 8/10/72 (tho this is posted elsewhere on the web, incorrectly, as being from the Gaslight).

The song is called “Henry Boy.” You may recognize melody and cadence in verses from “Rosalita,” which turned up on his second LP in late ’73. Dude’s still working it out. Van Morrison soul-poet vibe in full effect.
