Not the best recording (but has any excellent recording come out of that venue, now known as the Count Basie Theater?), but one of the more interesting ones.  This recording features more than what is listed on Brucebase (see below), but that's because BB only listed the songs featured Bruce.

Thanks to StArt for his help!

From Brucebase:
THIS TIME IT'S FOR REAL / GOT TO GET YOU OFF OF MY MIND / WITHOUT LOVE / SHE GOT ME WHERE SHE WANTS ME / THE FEVER / I DON'T WANT TO GO HOME / HAVING A PARTY / YOU MEAN SO MUCH TO ME (with Ronnie Spector) / THUNDER ROAD / RENDEZVOUS / BACKSTREETS / BORN TO RUN

Audience tape. The above-noted setlist includes the songs that featured Springsteen performing in some capacity. 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 Steve 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 above; Bruce took lead vocals on "The Fever" (backed by the Asbury Jukes), "Thunder Road", "Rendezvous", "Backstreets", and "Born To Run" (backed by the E Street Band), and shared lead vocals with Ronnie Spector on "You Mean So Much To Me" (backed by the Asbury Jukes). We are told a soundboard tape of this show does exist, but does not circulate.
