Bruce Springsteen - The Promise

In the three years between the knockout success of Born To Run and Darkness On The Edge Of Town, Bruce Springsteen was unable to go into the studio due to management issues but was still writing songs at an enviable rate. The songs that didn’t make Darkness make up this collection.

Some will be familiar. There’s a version of Racing In The Street with different lyrics, as well as Because The Night and Fire, which were made famous by Patti Smith and the Pointer Sisters respectively. Bruce’s original, looser version of Because illuminates the emotional depth Smith added to her rendition, though it’s easy to hear why she liked the song in the first place.

And while curiosities and lost tracks usually only appeal to the fan who has everything, this album stands as a perfect complement to Springsteen’s mid-70s work.
