Greetings from Asbury Park, N.J. Is a Postcard from the Heart, Soul, and Mind of a Music Lifer


Mobile Fidelity's UltraDisc One-Step 180g 33RPM LP Set of Bruce Springsteen's Debut Plays with Audiophile Sound: Music Emerges with an Openness That Gives Flight to the Vivid Storytelling Teeming with identifiable characters, youthful romanticism, vivid narratives, and sophisticated arrangements, Greetings from Asbury Park, N.J. is a personal postcard from the heart, soul, and mind of a rock 'n' roll lifer bent on discovering his world and what lays beyond it. The 1973 album establishes many of the signature themes and sounds Bruce Springsteen would embrace throughout his unparalleled career. No wonder a majority of the songs - 'Blinded by the Light,' 'Lost in the Flood,' 'Spirit in the Night' included - remain staples of the New Jersey native's fabled concerts. Balancing the label's vision of him as a folk-based singer-songwriter and his own desire to play rock 'n' roll with a full band, Springsteen never made a record like this again. Sourced from the original analog master tapes and pressed at RTI on MoFi SuperVinyl, Mobile Fidelity's numbered-edition UltraDisc One-Step 180g 33RPM LP set is the definitive-sounding version of Springsteen's daring debut. Afforded the benefits of SuperVinyl's nearly non-existent noise floor, Greetings from Asbury Park, N.J. plays with a clarity, directness, and emotionalism that practically whisks you into the New York office in which Springsteen played a few originals for legendary Columbia Records executive John Hammond and earned a record deal. The music emerges with an openness that gives flight to the Boss' storytelling. His words flow with unbridled, stream-of-conscious pacing and vibrant imagery. Equally important, Springsteen's still-underrated vocal performances can now be appreciated in full-range fidelity.
