Bruce Springsteen Biography

Bruce Springsteen: Tracks, a four CD set containing 66 songs and over four hours of material, will be released by Columbia Records on November 10th, 1998. The collection spans Bruce Springsteen"s entire 25 year career as a recording artist.

The box set includes 56 previously unreleased masters, many of which were recorded during the making of The River and Born In The U.S.A. albums. The remaining ten masters on Bruce Springsteen: Tracks are b-sides, some of which were released only internationally. Bruce Springsteen: Tracks is comprised of:

Disc 1:

Featuring 17 masters from 1972-77, including Springsteen's very first Columbia Records recordings, made in 1972 with legendary A & R executive John Hammond. This disc also features additional songs recorded for (but never released on) Greetings From Asbury Park; The Wild, The Innocent and The E Street Shuffle; Born To Run and Darkness On The Edge Of Town.

Disc 2:

Featuring 17 masters from 1977-83, taken primarily from sessions for The River, as well as from Born In The U.S.A. recordings. The original version of the song "Born In The U.S.A.", recorded in 1982 for the Nebraska CD, is also featured on this CD.

Disc 3:

Featuring 18 masters from 1982-87 -- additional music recorded for (but never released on) Born In The U.S.A., as well as tracks from the Tunnel Of Love sessions.

Disc 4:

Featuring 14 masters from 1989-98 -- including 13 previously unreleased songs recorded by Bruce Springsteen in the '90s, from Human Touch up to and beyond sessions for The Ghost Of Tom Joad.

In the liner notes, Bruce Springsteen describes the box set as follows:

"During the long intervals between my record releases, as I was spending more and more time in the studio, when I met a fan on the street I was often asked, "What are you guys doing in there?" I regularly pondered that question myself.

What we were doing in there was making a lot of music, a lot more music than I could use at any one time. As a result, my albums became a series of choices -- what to include, what to leave out? I based my decisions on my creative point of view at the moment -- the subject I was trying to focus on, something musical or emotional I was trying to express. In certain instances, as on Darkness on the Edge of Town, Nebraska and The Ghost of Tom Joad, these choices crystallized the album I was making. On some of my other records the reasons I had for choosing one song over another, in hindsight, feel a good deal less significant. One of the results of working like this was that a lot of music, including some of my favorite things, remained unreleased.

This collection contains everything from the first notes I sang in the Columbia recording studio, my early and later work with the E Street Band, through to my music in the 90s. It's the alternate route to some of the destinations I travelled to on my records, an invitation into the studio on the many nights we spent making music in search of the records we presented to you. I"m glad to finally be able to share this music; here are some of the ones that got away."
