21st February sees the first vinyl releases in over a decade of five Bruce Springsteen albums.
The releases by Columbia Records/Legacy Recordings comprise the vast majority of Springsteen’s recorded material from 2000 on wards. Each album has been transferred from the original source masters, allowing for the highest quality pressings.
’18 Tracks’ (1999) is coming to vinyl for the first time in over 20 years. The 2 LP set features rarities like the original ‘Born In The U.S.A.’ demo and exclusive songs ‘Trouble River,’ a 1999 re-recording of ‘The Promise’ and Springsteen‘s original version of ‘The Fever,’ made famous by Southside Johnny and The Asbury Jukes.
‘Live In New York City’ (2001) arrives on 3 LPs for the first time since its original pressing. The set chronicles Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band‘s much-anticipated reunion tour, recorded over two nights at Madison Square Garden in the summer of 2000.
‘The Rising’ (2002) will be reissued on 2 LP vinyl for the first time in over 15 years. The album offered messages of healing and redemption in the wake of the devastating attacks on 9/11, and saw The E Street Band re-unite in the studio for the first time in nearly a decade.
‘Devils & Dust’ (2005) comes to vinyl for the first time since its original release on the format. The 2 LP set remains one of Springsteen‘s starkest studio albums, recalling ‘The Ghost of Tom Joad’ a decade earlier.
‘Live In Dublin’ (2007) will be released on vinyl for the first time ever, a 2 LP snapshot of Bruce Springsteen’s work with The Sessions Band, including classic folk songs popularized by Pete Seeger and radically rearranged versions of Bruce Springsteen favourites.
