Born to run 30 question

Recommended Posts

I recently bought to 30 anniversary box of Born to run. And to my surprise there was except original album and the 2 DVD’s also a cd-single of Born to Run / Meeting across the river inside. Was this something limited because it was not described at the box-set itself?

I seem to remember there was at least one US retailer had it as an exclusive (Wikipedia reports it as Best Buy). Promo CD singles of Born To Run / Meeting Across The River were issued in both the US and Europe, can you tell which version you have in your box?

There is a photo of it here:

That looks like an EU copy which I think would be pretty unlikely to be included in the Best Buy Edition given this was a US retailer and IIRC was included in the box itself rather than shrinkwrapped  to the outside. Maybe some EU retailers were given copies of the Promo CD to give away with the box?

Weird, I have no memory of this single.

Though I did receive the TRACKS promo CD single when I bought a copy of SONGS from Backstreets in '98.
