David Bowie recorded this in 1974, but his version was not released until the 1990 CD issue of his covers album Pin-Ups
. Bowie's version features Ron Wood of the Rolling Stones on guitar.
Around this time, Bowie also recorded another song from the album, "It's Hard To Be A Saint In The City
," but didn't release that one either. This was a major bummer for Springsteen, who could have used the cash - 1974 was a tough year for him financially, as he put a lot of money into his band and was struggling to pay them.
