Bruce Springsteen

Born to Run 30th Anniversary Edition (Columbia)

If you consider Bruce Springsteen a preacher from the church of rock & roll, then his 1975 masterpiece Born to Run is the musical equivalent of the Bible. This 30th-anniversary-edition box set includes a remastered version of the original eight-song album, plus two DVDs: a full concert performance recorded in London in 1975 and Wings for Wheels, a 90-minute documentary chronicling the making of the disc. Featuring candid interviews from Springsteen, saxophonist Clarence Clemons and manager Jon Landau, Wheels doesn't lessen the mystique of Run (at one point Springsteen admits that even he doesn't know what a "Tenth Avenue Freeze-Out" is). If anything, it has the opposite effect, placing the album in a historical context and allowing the Boss' congregation to rediscover the album's magic all over again.
