Description

Product Description

Two CD collection from the singer, songwriter and Rock music icon. Includes ''Born To Run'', ''Rosalita (Come Out Tonight)'', ''Spirit In The Night'', ''Jungleland'', ''Darkness On The Edge Of Town'', ''Hungry Heart'', ''Born In The U.S.A.'', ''Glory Days'', ''Dancing In The Dark'', ''Streets Of Philadelphia'', ''The Ghost Of Tom Joad'', ''The Rising'', ''Badlands'' and many more.

Amazon.com

Vastly expanding 1995''s single disc Greatest Hits, The Essential Bruce Springsteen easily surpasses the earlier best-of set by serving up all its true essentials and tossing in less appreciated treats and a full disc of rarities. Disc one spans the first decade of Springsteen''s recording career, serving up at least two tracks each from the six albums that laid the groundwork for his ''80s burst into superstardom. Disc two picks up with his mainstream breakthrough, 1984''s Born in the U.S.A., and carries on through 2002''s The Rising, tossing in live recordings of "American Skin" and "Land of Hope and Dreams" for good measure. The selections and sequencing surpass those made on Greatest Hits, though there''s not too much in the way of surprises, other than that it appears that Born in the U.S.A. hasn''t aged all that well for the Boss; here, he selects only three songs from the hit-laden smash, one fewer than is found on the skimpy Greatest Hits. Disc three is where the fun really starts for all but neophytes. The live "Held Up Without a Gun" is as gutsy a one minute and 20 seconds as Springsteen as one could ask for, and the likes of "Trapped," "Countin'' on a Miracle," and a cover of "Viva Las Vegas" rank with his signature songs. --Steven Stolder

If you need a Spingsteen greatest hits collection, this one is the best I can think of. Now, I''m not a longtime Bruce fan, so many people might know of something better. But this does it for me. Truthfully, though, I actually listen to the other four CDs I have (Darkness, BTR, The River, and Nebraska) a lot more. But discs 2 & 3 of this collection give me enough of the rest (for now, anyway).
But if I could, I''d give it 4-1/2 stars. I was disappointed that Tenth Avenue Freeze Out isn''t included. But overall, this is an excellent collection for the new Spingsteen fan or the casual listener.

Honey, I want the heart/I want the soul/I want control right now

(Those''re Mr. Springsteen''s words up there, not mine, but I wholeheartedly agree.)

I know that Springsteen fans will argue over and over about what should be included in an "essential" collection of the artist''s work, but this collection is, in my opinion, absolutely superb. It''s also a great introduction to his work for those people who don''t know much about his style or range. It''s impossible to release a collection that contains all the heart and soul, but this is a good start.

I know that many people will think it''s kind of an extended greatest hits collection, but with Springsteen--oh, man. It doesn''t matter if his songs are popular hits; that shouldn''t turn you off of his music. His songs become hits because people connect fully with what he wrote and crafted, as well as with the man himself. Take "Born in the USA," for example. You can look at the song as something people mistakenly turned into an anthem (and therefore something that doesn''t belong in this collection), or you can look at it as the catalyst for many fan''s snickers and disdain aimed at politicians who tried to do the anthem thing and put Springsteen squarely on their side. Springsteen crafted a satirical song, and he always treated it that way in concert. So, stop thinking of a Springsteen "hit" as in any way similar to, say, a Backstreet Boys "hit," and you''ll be okay. If that were all this collection contained--just the hits, ma''am--this would still be superb.

But it contains more. It contains songs from albums that weren''t so wildly popular, and previously unreleased songs that give you glimpses into other sides of the man and his influences (there''s a third bonus disc that provides us with some stuff we likely have never heard before).

Buy this collection; hear this man sing of 70''s gang fights, of what it means to be truly free when your world seems to be nothing but limitation, of faith in the human spirit, of learning how to be a partner in a relationship. Read (and reread, as I do) the lyrics. Remember that this man performs with all his heart and soul up on stage, just like in the studio recordings, and be amazed by how damn much this guy LOVES to sing, record, and perform. Then, if you don''t already own the rest of his stuff, buy all the other cd''s so you can see the depth of his emotional range. Then, with all that wonderful music playing in your head, you''ll have the heart, the soul. Or at least, you''ll have Mr. Springsteen''s, since he''s singularly eager to expose those parts of himself to you in his music.

Enjoy!

I''m new to Springsteen, and I was told this was a good place to start. Quite frankly, I liked disc two the best. Disc one was a bit raw by my standards, but it gives you a clear picture of his early years. I think I liked disc two the best because the production was better on the newer songs... and I was most familiar with him starting with BORN IN THE USA. I get what people like about him, but a lot of it seemed really introspective...I have to get used to it. Springsteen is very different from what I usually listen to, and getting this collection was my way of trying to branch out into other genres. I like some of it, and some of it I didn''t. Maybe it will grow on me with with subsequent listens. Just got this, so we''ll see what happens. Great value for three discs. I didn''t really care for disc three... if I had heard it earlier.. I would have gone with the two disc version... but that''s just me.

Taking in account the audience Bruce is reaching out to in his liner notes, this is a 5 star album. It''s meant as an introduction, and that''s exactly what it is for new fans (or supporters as one writer put it).
As an old fan, I also wish the essential went much deeper. I knew I''d be disappointed when I ordered the album - but I wanted to learn one thing - Could the old songs be done on CD? Well, the answer is yes!!! The old songs were remastered for this CD and are much superior in sound than the CDs of the first four albums that are in the stores now.
I must say I was almost completely sucked in by CD1. The song choice flowed along perfectly until Hungry Heart spoiled the show. I guess the person programming the song sequencing was trying to maintain release order. It''s not that I mind Hungery Heart, mind you, it just seemed outta place where it was sequenced, and woulda fit much better on the mish-mash that is CD2.
So, for my birthday, or for next Christmas, perhaps Columbia can allow the first 4 CDs to be remastered. It sure seems weird when live bootlegs sound better than official releases done in the studio.
So, the sound Promise is there, and I agree with another writer that the only true "essential" Bruce would be a release of all his albums =:-)

A Good Compilation

I''m not a huge fan of Bruce Springsteen, but I had purchased this CD as a gift for a family member. I do know some of his work and this CD does a good job at covering the hits most of us would know but does leave off some of his lesser-known work.

Was hearing a lot of Brucy on Radio 2, so thought I would give this a go. The only album I already have is the classic Born in the USA. To be honest, I was disappointed in this overall. Given the length of his career, I thought that this would be awesome. Hey ho!

In the eighties bruce got so many good songs that I almost apologize the miss of "Cover me", "Hometown", "going down","Tougher than the rest", " I wish I was blind" and so on. I think you can add the cd "Born in USA" to your purchase and so you are more inside. But no doubts, "The essential" is better than "Greatest Hits"!! Enjoy...
