If you've never heard of Bruce, or if you have but you associate his name with cheesy eighties pop, stop here. Buy Born In The USA, play it five times at full volume, and if nothing stirs within you, give up.
If you're still here, you're either a fellow Springsteenista or you liked the single Lonesome Day off his latest album. In either case, rush - do not stroll, do not even jog - to your local music retailer and fork over the full price for this masterly four-CD collection of outtakes, bootlegs and B-sides from the Boss's thirty-year career. Do it now.
The CDs dovetail neatly with four of Springsteen's five phases as an artist (the fifth began in 1999 after the release of this collection). Each CD in the box has a sleeve with a sepia photo which perfectly captures the mood of the era: there's the merry-go-round Dylan-inspired 1972-1975 Jersey period, the cars and girls River sessions, the industrial rock-out of Nebraska/BornITUSA, and the earringed ageing gypsy mellowness of 1990 onwards. Each CD contains gems, absolute crackers which missed the albums by a criminal whisker. To my great surprise, I listen to the first and earliest one the most: although the four acoustic demos of tracks which made it on to Bruce's first album are great starters, they don't come near the brilliance of Santa Ana, Linda Let Me Be The One and Thundercrack. 'Linda' is my all-time favourite Springsteen song, a simple piano-and-organ-driven street hymn with the most beautiful chorus in rock music, especially in the last verse. 'Thundercrack' is vintage early Boss, with its sprawling structure, exuberant (and sometimes chaotic) Vini Lopez drum thrash, and as always that gorgeous swirling Federici organ.
CD 2 is perhaps the weakest, though 'Loose Ends' and the concert favourite 'Be True' stand out.

This box has a lot of good tracks on it. I am personally not that bothered about the early stuff that Springsteen did. I start liking the tracks from 'Darkness' and on. As we know Springsteen doesn't bombard us with CDs and this box is very welcome to us Springsteen fans that can't get enough. Some of the tracks on this box you have already heard before but in a different way. My favourites are "A good man is hard to find", "Stolen car" and "Rockaway". If you are in to Springsteen (especially Born in the USA era) , you will not be disappointed when you buy this box.

I'm absolutely chuffed to have got this wonderful selection of songs (and lyrics booklet) for the princely sum of £12. But the main point of posting is to reply to some adverse comments on the packaging. My experience is that if you patiently and gently work it out (and it may take a few minutes to suss it) the individual cds will come out of their case quite easily, with no chance of them being damaged.

Format: Audio CD
It is rare for an artists outtakes and demos to rival their recorded work, but in 'Tracks' you have exactly that. Any of these tracks could have featured on an album. There are acoustic demos, full band rave ups and up to date outtakes. Bruce could always write a brilliant song, but these hidden tracks demonstrate just how prolific and constant his ability is. This comes with a decent booklet with all the lyrics as well. Worth every penny.

Feel free to check out my blog which can be found on my profile page.

If you like Bruce Springsteen you will like these. Shop around and you can get a good price. But the music is always good. I bought this from abroad. Just goes to show cheaper abroad than at home. Not too quick a delivery but was worth the wait.

Music ... 5 stars plus. Bruce's leftovers better than a lot of artists best album.
Packaging absolute disaster and taking out CDs , putting them back, and getting them to stay in .... A right pity.

Excellent selection of songs, especially the early stuff and acoustic versions of well known songs.
Good package with the booklet including lyrics and photos.
