Today 5th of November, is the 40th birthday of the The Wild, The Innocent & The E Street Shuffle Bruce Springsteen album. In 1973 Bruce released his firs album and eleven months later he published the second one. This record is an "underrated" Bruce work because it comes before Born To Run and it hasn't got the "hits" or the rythm of Greetings From Asbury Park N.J, insted of that is an album that hides a lot of beautiful and tender love storys. Inside we can found a lot of different kind of lifes.
Inside Sandy we can read and listen the story of two wild lovers that are not pretty sure if their love can be forever or it is only a summer love. The boy fall over with a waitress of the shore and they roll an amazing and soft story.
In Kitty we can discover the tale of a boy who has just read in a publish display that his lover Kitty is back in town and that she comes now.
Wild Billy is a tender story about the life in a Circus, how they can live with the presures and dificults of living this kind of life.
The next song is a perfect balad that contains all the romanticism of the record. Spanish Johnny and Puertoricane Jane star the story of a diferent kind of couple. Both of them know that their love will not last forever because he is a romantic, young and bad boy that only ever want to do is fight and do some easy money. At the end of the song, when the piano, the violin and Bruce's voice mix we can think that Spanish Johnny and Puertoricane Jane could have a diffetent but happy ralationship together.
Rosalita is probably the hit of the album because is the song that will close all the sows till Born In The U.S.A. This song teach us how the main characters become free. The parents of the girl don't want that the boy go on with his daughter because he plays in a rock and roll band and they think that he does not have any money. Throught the dificulties his relationship go on and his love doesn't seem an anormal relation.
The song that close the album is always the favourite of the public when he hardly ever plays. NY City Serenade sounds a little bit operistic and the acustic guitars and the piano make a softly mix. The lyrics told us that if you strug to do something you can get it. And that things are not always as they seem.
