Had a lively debate with some folks on Facebook recently, and as a result I was reminded about how much I like this record. I had heard it for the first time during a CES – one of those after-dinner record-spinning scotch-fests that we were known for at the time, and someone brought along the LP for us to play on our system. Room was dark, but the music ignited sparks in the hearts of everyone there … enough to light up the room, it seemed. So I went and found the LP from a reseller … they’re rare and expensive … and it came on Saturday. I spent last night playing these sides, over and over, and thought to myself that Springsteen is a treasure – even if only for this one record.
