Bruce Springsteen’s first two albums did not sell especially well. Following this with a revised band and tour, he returned with his third album, ‘Born To Run’ and never looked back!
Recorded in New York, it explored themes of desolation and redemption and became a success both sides of the Atlantic! In the UK it reached 17 in the charts, however in the U.S. it reached number 3!
The lead single, the title track, however, took 12 years to chart in the UK eventually reaching number 16 in May 1987.
A truly classic album from an outstanding artist.
‘Born To Run’ was featured on my show on Hospital Radio Bedford 20th June 2017
