Bruce Springsteen debuts Born To Run outtake in concert

Tuesday night in Sunrise, Florida, Bruce Springsteen delivered the live debut of “Linda Let Me Be The One”, an outtake from the “Born To Run” album sessions 40 years ago.

The rocker stopped the band when they hit a bump midway through the performance.

"We f***ed the whole thing up right there!" said Springsteen. "I told you it was the first time!"

“Linda Let Me Be The One” was originally recorded during the “Born To Run” album sessions, which spanned a 14-month period from May 1974 through July 1975.

The song eventually surfaced on the 1998 four-disc compilation, “Tracks”, which consisted of never-before-released songs recorded during the sessions for his many albums, plus a number of single B-sides, as well as demos and alternate versions of already-released material.

Springsteen and The E Street Band are currently playing shows across the US as part of their "High Hopes" world tour.
