This British film marks the 40th Anniversary of Bruce’s first album, Greetings from Asbury Park, NJ, and compiles self-produced clips from fans, live performances along with a few professionally produced segments, and an epilogue of several of the key characters in the film who were the contest winners.
The song was written by Tim Scott in 1987, and released on his debut album, “The High Lonesome Sound”. The song was used in the low budget film, Slamdance.
