Is there a chronological playlist of all tracks?


Recommended Posts

I have been enjoying the podcast that has run through Springsteen songs from A to Z by Rob Carmack and JB Clark (BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN SINGS THE ALPHABET- https://alphabeticalspringsteen.com/) over the last few yeas.

I also listen to Song by Song which does the Tom Waits catalogue in order of release by Martin Zaltz Austwick and Sam Pay ( https://www.songbysongpodcast.com/)

Both are a good listen with a huge number of back episodes.

It got me thinking of a blended concept:

Has anyone produced a chronological playlist of Springsteen songs?

It would need to include the released and otherwise available tracks to be worthwhile.

I would not think it would be best ordered by release date.  For me it would be better if chronological by recording date  as close as possible so that you could enjoy the evolution of his songwriting career. If followed then The Promise box content would be shifted to live with the Darkness songs.

 

Thoughts or indeed pointers to where this might already exist are welcome.

If it doesn't exist and anyone is interested in picking this idea up in lockdown, it would  great.

Yes I guess that is something to work from to build a chronological playlist.

The Sessions section of Brucebase will probably help

Alphabetical, but a complete list of songs

A variation on that which only has officially released songs would be dandy. (Obviously, starting with this list and doing it oneself is a lot easier than compiling such a comprehensive list in the first place.)

That list can be filtered in a variety of ways

Could these be of use in that regard? https://cantfindtickets.wordpress.com/category/the-definitive-version-of-every-song-from-springsteens-archive-series/

I haven't written one of those posts featuring "Where The Bands Are" and a good percentage of the Western Stars live album yet, but I could potentially get that done by the end of the week.

I think what I am after would come from a complete version of On The Tracks - Timeline on the Brucebase Wiki http://brucebase.wikidot.com/stats:on-the-tracks-timeline which stops at the end of Darkness sessions

So it might start:

BABY I
YOU CAN'T JUDGE A BOOK BY THE COVER
HE'S GUILTY (THE JUDGE SONG)
THE BALLAD OF JESSE JAMES
MARY QUEEN OF ARKANSAS4
IT'S HARD TO BE A SAINT IN THE CITY
GROWIN' UP
DOES THIS BUS STOP AT 82ND STREET?
HENRY BOY

etc

I agree with Scott that a "Released" version would be useful as would a fuller version with all circulating tracks on it.
