Yep. There's a studio version of it that's awesome. I don't have time now, but if you wish, I could set you up with it at some point.

Born to Run, the song, was written and recorded well in advance of the rest of the album. Different recording studio, somewhat different band, different producer.

Produced by Springsteen, Jon Landau, and Mike Appel (his first manager).

Well, it was Appel and Springsteen. Landau came on after. Appel was there the whole way through the album, and then was gone.

I thought Appel was only there in title for the rest, as he hadn't been sued yet.

No, he was involved throughout, despite the problem he was having with Springsteen bringing on Landau. The lawsuit happened later.

OK, so, to wrap up my diary...

Sequencing - very good.
Production - superb.
Lyrics - fucking hell yeah.

Musically...hmm. In some ways, I'm with Axver, in that I'm not a huge fan of pianos and saxophones in rock. I'm also not into that huge rock sound in general, as I prefer little details and subtlety over epic climaxes (this is reversed in a live setting, of course). Because of this, I struggle with parts of the album a bit. Regardless, it's all sharply performed, and much is excellent. 10th Avenue Freeze-Out is such a brilliant tribute to soul, Meeting Across The River is absolutely gorgeous, and the title track is pure POWER. The second half is much better than the first, IMO.

Even though it's not all to my taste, it was pretty damn great, and it could be a grower. 8.6/10 on first listen.

OK, I have no bloody clue where my CD with Springsteen albums on it has gone. I thought it was in a box of CDs I have in my room, but that just contains U2 bootlegs. So I guess I'll download some. What do you recommend, phanan?

You think he should go in order, Phanan?

Coming from you, I'd consider that a major success.

I mostly agree with this, though I still think pianos and saxs are fine in rock when placed correctly. And I don't think this particular album falters in that category. I get what you mean, though.

I'm not sure whether or not I prefer The Wild, The Innocent, And So On over Born To Run. I love the freewheeling, fun atmosphere of that record. Born To Run is so much more intense, but rewarding.

Two different styles, both well executed.

One thing's for sure, the man can write a song.
