BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN
The Unbroken Promise: Lighting Up The Darkness Sessions
[Godfatherecords GR BOX 01, CD3 and 4 of 6]

Sessions for Darkness At The Edge Of Town, Record Plant, New York, Oct 1977 to March 1978. Very good soundboard? stereo.

Discs Three and Four form a set titled “A Masterpiece In The Making”, the sessions for the songs that made the final cut for the Darkness album. You get multiple “versions” of Badlands, Streets Of Fire and so on. Our favorites are the slow-burn songs Something In The Night, Racing In The Street and Prove It All Night. Unlike other sessions, as with the Beatles and Elvis, no one shouts out a “take number”.

We like to thank superted for sharing this hard-to-find boxset at the Yeeshkul site.

In 2010, Springsteen opened his vault and released a triple CD and triple DVD boxset of material left off his classic album Darkness At The Edge Of Town. The new box was called The Promise: The Darkness At The Edge Of Town Story. You can but this super deluxe edition here.

Along with the box came a friendly 2CD version, The Promise, containing just the 21 previously unreleased outtakes. Buy it here.
