When it comes to disaster relief, The Boss in on the case.

Bruce Springsteen is releasing an entire live set that he and the E Street Band recorded December 8, 1978 at the Summit in Houston Texas. All proceeds will benefit the MusiCares Hurricane Relief Fund to help those affected in Texas and Florida by Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, respectively.

According to, the Houston show was part of the final leg of the Darkness on the Edge of Town tour and it originally appeared as part of the Darkness box set. It includes the extended introduction version of “Prove It All Night,” the rarely performed “Streets of Fire,” and Darkness outtakes “Fire” and “Because the Night.”

Fans will also enjoy early versions of three tracks that would go on to appear on The River: “Independence Day,” “Point Blank” and “The Ties That Bind,” plus Bruce’s famed take on “Santa Claus is Comin’ to Town.”

The Houston ’78 show is available as MP3 and hi-res download, or as a two-CD set. You can order at
