Bruce Springsteen - A Career In Twenty Songs

I make no apologies for the fact that nearly all the tracks chosen here date from the first decade or so of Bruce Springsteen's remarkable career. I thought about putting some later tracks in to the list but in the end I decided against it. For me the essence of Bruce Springsteen and his wonderful E St. Band is to be found in the 1973-83 period and is from then that my memories of being simply blinded by his light date.
