This radio broadcast was recorded by Radio Galega Estudio-3 on July 15th, 2006 at the Caldas de Reis Cultura Quente Festival in Galicia, Spain.
This is a very heavy file lasting 54’18, so please keep that in mind if you want to download! Despite some static here and there it’s a terrific recording of a tremendous show with Robert in great voice.

robert and link on “old grey whistle test”
june 13th, 1978.

A recording of this U.K. television appearance has so far been impossible to locate, but thanks to Trevor Cajiao, you can now hear this great rarity from an off-line source. The soundquality is less than perfect, but the fact that this very likely is the last recording of Robert and Link playing together makes up for that. Songs are: ‘Lonesome Train’, ‘The Way I Walk’ and ‘I Sure Miss You’.

Recorded from the audience at the Paramount Theater in Ashbury Park, N.J. on May 27th 1979 – you can hear Robert duetting with Bruce on a song that made a huge impression on them both when they first heard it in 1956. Check out Bruce’s over-the-top Elvis impression!

The story of how Robert got to record this Springsteen song is well-known, but most fans are not aware of the fact that they also sang it on stage together on two seperate occasions. This version is an audience recording from a Robert Gordon show at the Paramount Theater in Ashbury Park, N.J. on May 27th, 1979.
