Sunday 11/14/21 3am ET: Feature LP: Bruce Springsteen – Tunnel of Love (1987)

Tunnel of Love is the eighth studio album by American singer-songwriter Bruce Springsteen, released on October 9, 1987. Although members of the E Street Band occasionally performed on the album, Springsteen recorded most of the parts himself, often with drum machines and synthesizers. While the album’s liner notes list the E Street Band members under that name, Shore Fire Media, Springsteen’s public relations firm, does not count it as an E Street Band album and 2002’s The Rising was advertised as his first studio album with the E Street Band since Born in the USA. The album won Best Rock Vocal Performance, Solo at the 1988 Grammy Awards.

In 1989, the album was ranked #25 on Rolling Stone magazine’s list of the “100 Best Albums of the Eighties” while in 2012, Rolling Stone ranked it at #467 on their list of the 500 greatest albums of all time. “Brilliant Disguise”, “Tunnel of Love”, “One Step Up”, “Tougher Than the Rest”, and “Spare Parts” were all released as singles.

Thursday 9/23/21 12pm ET: Artist Countdown: Bruce Springsteen Top 30 Hits

Bruce Frederick Joseph Springsteen (born September 23, 1949) is an American singer, songwriter, and musician. He has released twenty studio albums, many of which feature his backing band, the E Street Band. Originally from the Jersey Shore, he is one of the originators of the heartland rock style of music, combining mainstream rock musical style with narrative songs about working class American life. During a career that has spanned five decades, Springsteen has become known for his poetic, socially conscious lyrics and energetic stage performances, sometimes lasting up to four hours in length. He has been nicknamed “the Boss”.

Springsteen has released records steadily since 1973, and is widely known for his brand of heartland rock infused with pop hooks, poetic lyrics, and Americana sentiments centered on his native New Jersey. The E Street Band have been Springsteen’s primary backing band since 1972 and have appeared on a majority of his studio albums and live releases. Springsteen also released one studio and live album with The Sessions Band.

Springsteen’s recordings have tended to alternate between commercially accessible rock albums and somber folk-oriented works. His most commercially successful period occurred between 1975’s Born to Run and 1987’s Tunnel of Love. 1984’s Born in the U.S.A. launched Springsteen into superstardom and the album went on to become one of the biggest selling albums of all time. It produced seven top-10 hit singles, tied for the most ever with Michael Jackson’s Thriller and Janet Jackson’s Rhythm Nation 1814. Springsteen has steadily maintained a loyal audience since his 80s success, and experienced a renewed commercial strength since 2002’s The Rising, the first in a string of consecutive successful albums following a 1999 reunion with The E Street Band with whom he parted ways in 1988. 2014’s High Hopes was Springsteen’s eleventh #1 album placing him at third all-time for most #1 albums ever trailing only Jay-Z (13) and The Beatles (19). He achieved his eleventh #1 album in the UK with his next release, 2019’s Western Stars, which saw him join Elvis Presley and Robbie Williams on eleven UK #1s, trailing only Madonna (12) and The Beatles (15). On October 25, 2019, Springsteen released a theatrical film for Western Stars which marked his directorial debut. The film was accompanied by the Western Stars – Songs from the Film soundtrack. On October 23, 2020, Springsteen released his twentieth studio album, Letter to You.

Overall, Springsteen has released 20 studio albums, 73 singles, eight extended plays, 23 live albums, seven box sets, eight compilation albums, one soundtrack, 61 music videos and 17 home videos. He has sold 64.5 million albums in the US, making him the 15th highest-selling artist of all time and seventh highest-selling male artist overall behind Garth Brooks (135 million), Elvis Presley (134.5 million), Billy Joel (81.5 million), Michael Jackson (81 million), Elton John (73.5 million) and George Strait (69 million). In 2014, Springsteen opened the Bruce Springsteen Archives and announced that he will release various shows from his past that have been digitally restored and remastered and, unlike the bootleg releases, officially endorsed by Springsteen himself.

Sunday 9/19/21 1am ET: Feature LP: Bruce Springsteen – The Wild, the Innocent & the E Street Shuffle (1973)

The Wild, the Innocent & the E Street Shuffle is the second studio album by American rock singer-songwriter Bruce Springsteen. It was recorded by Springsteen with the E Street Band at 914 Sound Studios, Blauvelt, New York, and released on November 5, 1973 by Columbia Records. It includes the song “Rosalita (Come Out Tonight)”, the band’s most-used set-closing song through 1985.

As with Springsteen’s first album released earlier in the year, The Wild, the Innocent & the E Street Shuffle was well-received critically but had little commercial success at the time, nationally. Locally though, the album sold well, was played regularly on Northeast AOR stations and did make Springsteen a local phenomenon. Once Springsteen achieved nationwide popularity with Born to Run, several selections from this album became popular FM radio airplay and concert favorites. On November 7, 2009, Springsteen and the E Street Band played the album in its entirety for the first time during a concert at Madison Square Garden.

The Wild, the Innocent & the E Street Shuffle has gone on to sell nearly 3 million albums. This was the final Springsteen album to feature original pianist David Sancious. In the 2020 updated version of Rolling Stone’s 500 Greatest Albums of All Time, the album was ranked at number 345.

Born to Run is the third studio album by American singer-songwriter Bruce Springsteen. As his effort to break into the mainstream, the album was a commercial success, peaking at number three on the Billboard 200 and eventually selling six million copies in the United States. Two singles were released from the album: “Born to Run” and “Tenth Avenue Freeze-Out”; the first helped Springsteen to reach mainstream popularity. The tracks “Thunder Road”, “She’s the One”, and “Jungleland” became staples of album-oriented rock radio and Springsteen concert high points.

Born to Run garnered widespread acclaim when it was first released on August 25, 1975, by Columbia Records. It has since been considered by critics to be one of the greatest albums of all time. On November 14, 2005, a 30th Anniversary remaster of the album was released as a box set including two DVDs: a production diary film and a concert movie.

The album was remastered again in 2014 by veteran mastering engineer Bob Ludwig, who has worked on much of Springsteen’s audio output since 1982, for release as part of The Album Collection Vol. 1 1973–1984, a boxed set composed of remastered editions of his first seven albums.

Live/1975–85 is a live album by Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band. It consists of 40 tracks recorded at various concerts between 1975 and 1985, released as a box set by Columbia Records on November 10, 1986.

In November of ’85, Springsteen wrote in the liner notes, “Jon Landau sent a four-song cassette of ‘Born in the U.S.A.’, ‘Seeds’, ‘The River’ and ‘War’ down to my house with a note attached saying he ‘thought we might have something here’. Over the following months we listened to 10 years of tapes, the music did the talkin’, and this album and its story began to emerge. We hope you have as much fun with it as we did. I’d like to thank Jon for his friendship and perseverance and the E Street Band for 1,001 nights of comradeship and good rockin’. They’re all about the best bunch of people you can have at your side when you’re goin’ on a long drive.”

Wednesday 11/11/2020 10pm ET: Feature LP: Bruce Springsteen – Tracks (1998)

Tracks is a four-disc box set by Bruce Springsteen, released in 1998 containing 66 songs. This box set mostly consists of never-before-released songs recorded during the sessions for his many albums, but also includes a number of single B-sides, as well as demos and alternate versions of already-released material.

The project began in February 1998, when Springsteen and his chief recording engineer, Toby Scott, began going through his massive collection of unreleased songs. Springsteen had been known as a very prolific songwriter (Darkness on the Edge of Town, The River, and Born in the U.S.A. each had more than 50 songs written for them), and by 1998 the number of unreleased songs was up to more than 350— 3/4 of all his recorded material. Scott had begun on a computerized database of Springsteen’s archives in 1985 in order to allow Springsteen to find specific songs that hadn’t been released yet, and it was understood by Scott and others since the 1980s that Springsteen would eventually compile a selection of these unreleased recordings into a box set.
