EDITORS’ NOTES

Bruce Springsteen’s 1980 double album The River was a stripped-back return to garage rock ‘n’ roll, where ravers like “Ramrod” and character sketches like “Hungry Heart” added up to a localized short-story anthology. This set expands on that classic LP, adding a shelved 1979 album and a pile of mostly obscure outtakes that presage the pessimism of 1982’s Nebraska. Lost rockers like “Party Lights” resurface as well—all sure to retool your vision of a hugely inspired era of his career.
