Bruce Springsteen announces Record Store Day releases

Bruce Springsteen will issue his first seven albums on vinyl as part of Record Store Day 2015 on April 18.

Available as seven individual 12" vinyl, the records were recently reissued as part of “The Album Collection Vol. 1 1973-1984”, a box set featuring remastered versions on both vinyl and CD.

The albums include “Greetings From Asbury Park, NJ” (1973), “The Wild, The Innocent And The E Street Shuffle” (1973), “Born To Run” (1975), “Darkness On The Edge Of Town” (1978), ”The River” (1980), “Nebraska” (1982) and “Born In The U.S.A” (1984).

The box set sees five of the albums make their first appearance on CD and all seven are making their remastered debut on vinyl.

Head Foo Fighter Dave Grohl was recently named 2015 Record Story Day Ambassador.

The annual event is held the third Saturday of every April and is a celebration of the unique culture surrounding over 700 independently owned record stores in the USA, and hundreds of similar stores internationally.

This is the one day that all of the independently owned record stores come together with artists to celebrate the art of music. Special vinyl and CD releases and various promotional products are made exclusively for the day and hundreds of artists in the United States and in various countries across the globe make special appearances and performances.
