Southside Johnny & The Absurd Jukes

Southside Johnny have been recording albums since 1976 and are closely associated with Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band. They have recorded and/or performed several Springsteen songs, including "The Fever" and "Fade Away". Springsteen has also performed with the band on numerous occasions and in 1991 guested on their Better Days album.

During the band´s formative years Miami Steve Van Zandt acted as the band´s co-leader, guitarist, songwriter, arranger and producer while other E Streeters including Clarence Clemons, Max Weinberg, Garry Tallent , Ernest Carter, Patti Scialfa and Soozie Tyrell have all performed, toured and/or recorded with the Jukes. The band´s horn section – The Miami Horns – has also toured and recorded with Springsteen.

I Don´t Want To Go Home (1976) is Stax – influenced R&B arranged and produced by the co-founder of the band and Springsteen confederate Steven Van Zandt which featured songs written by Van Zandt and/or Springsteen.

The Van Zandt-written "I Don´t Want To Go Home" became Southside´s signature song, an evocative mixture of horn-based melodic riffs and sentimental lyrics.

The album features a number of guest artists and duets. "How Come You Treat Me So Bad" features a duet with Lee Dorsey, while "Broke Down Piece of Man" features a duet with Steven Van Zandt, ‘It Ain´t the Meat (It´s the Motion)’ features a duet with Kenny ´Popeye´ Pentifallo, ‘You Mean So Much To Me’ features a duet with Ronnie Spector.
