R.I.P. Clarence

I thought I would post this in honor of the Big Man. "Jungleland" featuring the greatest sax solo in rock and roll history. This one was from a legendary E Street Band show, September 21, 1978 at the Capitol Theatre in Passaic, N.J. The show was broadcast live on the radio and the (probably apocryphal) story says that you could walk across the length and breadth of the Rutgers University campus and not miss a note as every student there had it on the radio at full volume with their windows open. Anyhow, here it is -- and pay special attention to the sax solo starting at about the 4:00 mark.
