My first Springsteen album was The River, but I soon realized that there was a wealth of great music on the four albums that had come before it. (I'd heard Born To Run and Darkness On The Edge Of Town, but Greetings and The Wild, the Innocent & the E Street Shuffle had passed through while I was still in my top 40 phase.) Originally fished out of a dollar bin in a local used record store, I was amazed to find that it was nearly the equal of Born To Run. The only semi-clinker on the album was Wild Billy's Circus Story (but I'm sure there are others who LOVE this one.) I found early on that the six tracks that I loved from this album meshed with those that I loved from Greetings. They weren't cohesive in any way, but together they made a great side of one of my favorite driving tapes. At this point everyone knows about Rosalita, but this album offers so much more than just that admittedly great concert staple. I think what makes it one of my favorites in the car are the constant tempo shifts, from the placid New York City Serenade to the wildcat energy of Kitty's Back and Rosalita, this album delivers a whole spectrum of emotions and sounds and is a great find if you've never indulged before.

Without a doubt, hands down, the best Springsteen CD EVER.

An eclectic mix of musical styles and the musicianship and production is utterly incredible. You have to be willing to switch gears on this one. The tracks run an incredible range and if you're stuck on Springsteen as a rocker only, you'll miss a lot of what's being dished out to you. It's the last album with Vincent Lopez and the band suffered from his loss, although rumor has it that it was necessary.

I've been listening to this album for over 30 years and I am still utterly amazed at how good it really is. Jazz, Latino, Classical, Blues, Rock and Folk all exist side by side and overlap in very brainy musical kaleidoscope. Punchy rock to very quiet, sparse musical poetry and all points in between.

Certainly not appealing to those who like a steady groove for a whole album.

I will admit that I bought this album for "Rosalita" initially, as I'm sure a lot of fans did. See, I was introduced to Bruce from "Born to Run" on, so I had no idea that the man had more treasures in his collection just waiting for me to find. When I heard "Rosalita" on the Bruce Anthology video, I was hooked and it immediately became my favorite performance on the tape. It was raw, enthusiastic, and beautiful all in one. I had never wished that I could go back in time so much...just to be at one concert to have the fun that Bruce was having while performing that one song. Of course, I had to buy this album and "Greetings..." immediately.
After getting my fill of "Rosie" over and over again, I decided to let the whole album play and wow... This is definitely is what rock & roll is all about--the energy, the innocence, the passion, the rough edges and the over the top instrumental riffs. When you listen to this album, it makes you feel like you stumbled into a bar at exactly the right moment--when their star performer took the stage. And Bruce and the band would entertain the crowd into the morning just because they could and they loved it. The rousing instrumentals often seem like they were just the improvisations of a live show or that maybe they were competing behind the scenes to steal the show with an anthemesque riff. But...it tends to be difficult to steal a show away from you know who.
I definitely think this album was titled perfectly. Bruce never again would have the wild and wide-eyed perspective and the innocence of a young boy trying to have a good time while making a name for himself in the desolate streets of Jersey.
