We never made it out to New York to catch ‘Springsteen on Broadway,’ for some inexplicable reason the tickets for the all expenses paid press junket just didn’t arrive. Not that we’re complaining you understand… But if, like us, you didn’t make it to Broadway for Springsteen’s intimate (for him) series of shows the good news is that the show is coming to you! With admirable good timing the release of the soundtrack album for Springsteen’s Tony Award winning historic 236-show run of what could be described as a musical biography will be on the 12th of December. Pretty Handy, if you happen to know (or are) a Springsteen fan. And the day after the last stage show on the 15th of December a full recording will be available to view on Netflix (other TV providers are available – but they won’t have the show so….).
The album starts fittingly enough with a track from the sensational first album ‘Greetings from Asbury Park. N.J.’ and weaves its way through sixteen songs taking in better and lesser known tracks along the way. The album will be available as a double CD or a 4LP set. You could also download, but why? Especially when the packaging falls into the sumptuous category. Plus, a download is going to look terrible under the Festive tree.
