Bruce Springsteen: Before The Fame (CD)

13 tracks
Before the Fame

This CD contains all previously unreleased material, recorded in 1972, just prior to Bruce Springsteen's meteoric rise to international stardom. These songs are the type of material that record company executives had heard, to recognize what would soon be "The future of Rock and Roll." All of the tracks give insight to the true, raw poet, and it is to this style that Bruce has recently returned. This rare release invites you to listen to Bruce Springsteen "before the fame, but not before the genius."
BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN: guitars, lead vocals, vibes, mandolin, recorder E. Street Band Members: CLA.RENCE CLEMONS: saxophone, background vocals DAVID SANCIOUS: piano, organ, background vocals GARRY W. TALLENT: bass, background vocals DANNY FEDERICI: organ, background vocals VIM "Mad Dog" LOPEZ: drums, background vocals

He has been called the "last innocent in rock," which is at best partly true, but that is how he appears to audiences who are exhausted and on fire at the end of a concert. Springsteen is not a golden California boy or glitter queen from Britain. Dressed usually in leather jacket and shredded undershirt, he is a glorified gutter rat from a dying New Jersey resort town who walks with an easy swagger that is part residual stage presence, part boardwalk braggadocio.
...His music is primal, directly in touch with all the impulses of wild humor and glancing melancholy, street tragedy and punk anarchy that have made rock the distinctive voice of a generation.
...Springsteen's songs are full of echoes-of Sam Cooke and Elvis Presley, of Chuck Berry, Roy Orbison and Buddy Holly. You can also hear Bob Dylan, Van Morrison and the Band weaving among Springsteen's elaborate fantasias.
excerpts from James Willwerth's October 1975 TIME Magazine cover story

Bruce Springsteen

For most music fans Bruce Springsteen, born in Freehold, New Jersey on September 23, 1949 needs no introduction. His fan base began building in 1973 when his first album, 'Greetings From Asbury Park, N.J.' was released. A year later, music critic Jon Landau wrote, "I saw rock and roll's future, and its name is Bruce Springsteen." With 1975's 'Born To Run' album Springsteen achieved commercial as well as critical success. The LP would spend two years among the Top 200, rise to #3 and sell more than three million copies. To cap off '75, Springsteen appeared on the covers of both 'Time' and 'Newsweek' the week of October 27.

From his early albums on, Springsteen has focused his themes on working-class people and issues. Thus Vietnam, its soldiers and its veterans, have shown up in a number of his songs. Examples include not only the single Born In The U.S.A. (mistakenly embraced by President Ronald Reagan as a patriotic anthem) but also lesser-known album tracks such as Lost In The Flood, Youngstown, Brothers Under The Bridge and Shut Out The Light.

Galveston Bay from 'The Ghost Of Tom Joad' is another album track that received limited airplay. It is the story of a Vietnamese soldier "who fought side by side with the Americans," flees the country when Saigon fell and eventually brings his family to Texas. There he buys a shrimp boat and begins a new life on the bay. The song's lyrics address tensions between Vietnamese refugees and local fishermen in the larger context of anti-immigrant sentiment: "America for Americans." In the conflict that follows people die. Ultimately, however, there is reconciliation with the present in Galveston and perhaps with the past, the Vietnam War itself.
