@Lampi

I googled 'Springsteen's lost country album' and have found this article, which I find a bit confusing.:o

The first is the one pre Tunnel, the last is the 2010 you have talked about.

But what's the deal with the 1995 roots country and West Texas swing music? 

 

Springsteen's Lost 'Country' Album(s)

Three quotes:

The May-July 1987 period saw Springsteen conducting further recording sessions back out on the west coast at A&M Studios in Los Angeles (and possibly related solo sessions at his west coast home studio as well). The initial phase of these A&M Studios sessions included three outside session musicians (together and individually) - Jay Dee Maness (pedal steel, and at the time a member of ex-Byrd Chris Hillman’s Desert Rose Band), Richard Greene (a noted fiddle player) and James “Jimmie” Wood (a harmonica specialist). A July 1987 news piece in Rolling Stone Magazine reported on the three musician’s involvement in Springsteen sessions in L.A. Some individual members of the E Street Band were also involved in these, or slightly later, west coast A&M Studio sessions. However the only recording that’s surfaced from all these west coast sessions is “One Step Up” (which features only Patti Scialfa in support). Of these three “outside” session men – only James Wood appears on any of the known recordings (a harmonica overdub on “Spare Parts”).

In 1995 Springsteen confirmed in an Australian TV interview with Molly Meldrum that nearly an entire album’s worth of songs, material that effectively constituted another work-in-progress album separate from the Tunnel Of Love album, had been recorded during 1986-87. It is unclear from Bruce’s comments if he was talking about the material he is alleged to have recorded by himself during May-June 1986, or the material with the 3 (above-noted) session musicians that he recorded in Los Angeles in May-June 1987, or both.

 While recording his last studio album, The Ghost of Tom Joad (1995), he also laid down a country album. That unreleased effort, says Springsteen, features “roots country and West Texas swing music,” but it didn’t fit in with this current boxed set, and he hasn’t decided what to do with it.

Interview with Christopher John Farley, November 16, 1998, Time Magazine, Vol. 152, Issue 20.

I don’t ever give up on anything, really. I do something for a while and then I put it aside, you know. I’m always returning to what I have, the raw material. A while back, I recorded a country record and put it aside. I returned to it a couple of months ago and thought, “What am I going to do next?”

Apparently it is a 1995 roots country and West Texas swing music album which didn't fit in with the Tracks box set and it seems Bruce has not decided yet what to do with it.

That's not the answer I was expecting from a noted Springsteenologist. :D

Maybe it should be noted that western swing music is dance music.

Wikipedia says: '...often augemented with drums, saxophones, piano' [hmmm...sounds like E Street Band, right?] 'and notably the steel guitar' [Nils!:)].

Or sweeping orchestral arrangements. Or songs where all the singing ends up in an upswing. Or ‘orses.
