VIDEO: Bruce Springsteen “Candy’s Room” 2009

Next Tuesday, Bruce Springsteen releases two projects based around the recording sessions for his 1978 release, “Darkness On The Edge Of Town.”

“The Promise” is a new audio collection that features two discs of 21 previously unreleased songs from the 1977-1978 sessions; Bruce recorded almost 70 songs and pared things down to 10 for the original album.

“The Promise: The Darkness On The Edge Of Town Story” documentary premiered in September at the Toronto International Film Festival; the film documents the creation of the 1978 follow-up to “Born To Run,” which made Springsteen a household name. “Darkness” produced such Bruce standards as “Badlands,” “The Promised Land,” “Prove It All Night” and the title track.

Springsteen has just released a live performance video of “Candy’s Room” from the documentary, shot as part of a complete album performance at the Paramount Theatre in Asbury Park, New Jersey, in December 2009.
