Very little is know about Eddie & The Tide except the band had a huge club draw in the Santa Cruz, California area during the mid-1980s, and they had a singer, whose real name was Steve Rice, that was clearly a vocal clone of America's favorite son, Bruce Springsteen. Not unlike John Cafferty & the Beaver Brown Band, Eddie & The Tide jumped on the '80s-styled Springsteen bandwagon, complete with black leather jackets and songs about city kids who just needed to rock.

After releasing a couple of successful indie records, the band was signed by Atco Records (a division of Atlantic). That association landed the group a spot on the soundtrack to the popular teen vampire film, The Lost Boys, which starred Kiefer Sutherland. This show was recorded at the Showtime club in Santa Cruz, a regular spot where Eddie & The Tide played. In addition to being recorded for the King Biscuit Flower Hour, the group was about to embark on its first major U.S. tour since signing to a large label. Needless to say, the audience is extremely enthusiastic.

The material, which include band set staples such as "Just A Little Bit," "Runnin' Wild, Runnin' Free," "This Could Be The One," "One In A Million," "Excited," and "''Til I Can't Run No More" is unfortunately relatively forgettable, very much dated in the big hair-MTV inspired '80s, but it is remarkable to hear how much Rice goes out of his way to do a Springsteen imitation. They end the show with a typical cover of the Temptations' Motown gem, "Get Ready."

Eddie & The Tide stayed together until the late-1980s, when they disbanded after being dropped by Atco. Rice is supposedly working on a comeback solo album.
