Was in a record store the other day and I saw this double album  boot from obviously 1972-73 called "Bound for Glory". It was vinyl and it looked like a lot of effort was put into it. I think there were two interviews with Springsteen and eveything appeared to be studio stuff except a version of Thundercrack.  It was only 32 bucks and alas I went back for it yesterday and it was gone. Anyone ever hear it? Is it good quality? The owner said he could get me a copy if I wanted one. Just wondering if its worth it.

I have a CD with that title (subtitle: The rare 1973 broadcasts) - it's two radio broadcasts, excellent quality.

This one?

 

Its not a bootleg in the sense that it is a legal release, there's some loophole regarding US radio broadcasts being released in Europe.

 

Its pretty good, worth having.

CD Description
By mid 1972 the rock landscape was looking decidedly dull. The search for a new Beatles or a new Dylan to re-unite the Woodstock generation and their younger siblings had come to nothing and the natives were getting restless. So when word began to filter through of new-kid-on-the-block Bruce Springsteen breaking out of home city Asbury Park, New Jersey, and playing shows nationwide that reconfirmed audiences faith in the redemptive power of rock n roll, hope began to restore. Bruce had signed a recording deal with Columbia in mid-72 and had been working on his debut record since. Greetings From Asbury Park saw the light of day in early 73, and within the week Springsteen, with a little help from three of the soon to be named East Street Band, were performing their first ever radio broadcast, aired on Boston s WBCN FM. A quite remarkable performance ensued with Bruce and the boys in excellent humour and fine form as they played a terrific set, although remarkably including just one cut from Greetings. The show was an intimate affair without an audience but gave listeners their first glimpse into Springsteen s infectious personality, enormous enthusiasm and unique sense of humour. It also drove home the message that here was an artist who could prove to be the new messiah, with songs that quite beggared belief. The second show featured on this disc is Bruce s very first broadcast from the Main Point venue in Bryn Mawr, just outside Philadelphia - the venue at which Bruce s most prestigious and highly regarded broadcast was made, the astonishing 1975 gig that has also recently been released. This April 1973 set differs widely from the January 73 show as the full band (drummer Vini Lopez joins proceedings) rock out, and comparisons with the largely acoustic Boston broadcast remain fascinating. That was pretty good, Bruce is heard to mutter as the final track of this broadcast draws to a close - providing the perfect understatement for the burgeoning talent heard maturing in these two broadcasts, and equally for the shows themselves, as just one listen to this remarkable CD will testify.

And the vinyl version is on red vinyl (or at least the first edition).

For some a very good reason to buy the vinyl instead of the CD.

I had it for Christmas. I listened to it yesterday and it is very good. I really like Song For Orphans and Tokyo.  

Bruce is funny in between the songs, especially the story about the gas station.

The 75 version is worth finding, with I Want You on it.
