The Boss

Today, is the release of “The Promise: the Darkness on the Edge of Town Story.”

Bruce Springsteen’s box set that details the follow-up to the greatest rock album of all time “Born to Run.”

As a huuuuuge Bruuuuuuce fan, I am totally stoked about it.  I loved when they re-released “Born to Run” a few years ago with bonus tracks, concert footage and writings.  This is along those same lines.  This box set has two concert DVD’s and 21 previously un-released songs.  21 new songs!?!?!?!  Really??!!! This is huge!!  I mean when can anyone recall a star as big as Bruce having enough unreleased songs, from as long ago as the 70’s, to have a double CD release?   This is like Coppola announcing he found a new Godfather movie that was filmed 30 years ago or new books by Stephen King that he happened to come across.  These are songs that were written during the E-Streets band heyday and we get to hear them for the 1st time now.  I can’t possibly state in words how excited I am about this.  To help promote this release, Bruce is monopolizing Jimmy Fallon’s show tonight.  He’ll be playing a few songs and doing an interview.  Totally DVRable.

This is a must for any Springsteen fan.  I can’t wait to get mine.

    I am feeling very left out today out here in Africa – seems to be missing all the fun! My box set will hopefully arrive in Dec with my son from Norway. In the meantime – enjoy! For me as a new fan it is really HUUUUGE!
