Cleveland International Records has announced the June 3 release of a concert album, Live in Cleveland ’77, by Southside Johnny & the Asbury Jukes. It was recorded on May 2, 1977, at The Agora in Cleveland, and features Ronnie Spector singing Billy Joel’s “Say Goodbye to Hollywood.”
Steven Van Zandt, who was at that time a member of Bruce Springsteen’s E Street Band in addition to producing albums for the Jukes, produced a single for Spector of “Say Goodbye to Hollywood” with backing by the E Street Band. It was recorded in January 1977 and released in April of that year.
