The breakout album by The Boss, Born To Run is a seminal rock album. Full of great songs including the anthemic Born To Run this album fully deserves to be in anyone’s Top 10 list.
I was lent this album by a guy I worked with at the time. He’d seen Springsteen play live in Canada and said he’d never seen a concert like it and he just raved about Springsteen. Bruce had hardly registered with me at the time and I was a little skeptical to say the least. It took me another 10 years to see Springsteen live but this album had me from it’s opening chords.

With this album to call on Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band were always going to be huge. Couple that with live shows lasting around 3 hours Bruce quickly became The Boss and the rest, as they say, is history.
A word about the album cover. It’s Bruce and The Big Man, Clarence Clemons, his sax player from 1972 until his death in 2011. It screams fun and that they know exactly what they’re doing and the only way is up. No more faking it, with this album they’d made it.
