Buy Born to Run by Bruce Springsteen From Amazon

Born to Run - Bruce Springsteen - Just The Good Stuff Born to Run by Bruce Springsteen ranked # 18 on Rolling Stone Magazine's 500 Greatest Albums list.

His third album, Born to Run was Springsteen's breakthrough hit and launched his career in the United States and around the world. His first album to feature Roy Bittan and Max Weinberg, Born to Run cemented Springsteen's reputation among critics and established his first mainstream fanbase.

The album is noted for its use of introductions to set the tone of each song (much of the record was composed on piano, not guitar), and for the Phil Spector-like "Wall of Sound" arrangements and production. Indeed, Springsteen has said that he wanted "Born to Run" to sound like "Roy Orbison singing Bob Dylan, produced by" Spector.

Upon release, the album peaked at number 3 on the Billboard album chart and spent over two years in the top 100 best-selling albums. Most reviews were immediate raves, even to the extent of writer Greil Marcus comparing the introduction to "Backstreets" to the Iliad.

On November 14, 2005, Columbia Records released Born to Run 30th Anniversary Edition. The package included a remastered CD version of the original album, and two DVDs: Wings For Wheels, a lengthy documentary on the making of the album (with bonus film of three songs recorded live on May 1, 1973 at the Ahmanson Theater in Los Angeles), and Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band Hammersmith Odeon, London '75, a full-length concert film recorded on November 18, 1975 at the Hammersmith Odeon in London.
