High Hopes: A New Studio Album


The Wild, The Innocent & The E Street Shuffle

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.

The first song is probably the most active. And it always says us that to have fun we have to do the E STREET SHUFFLE!!!!!!

Hope all of you love this record as I do because behind the sad eyes that Bruce hide in the cover, there are a lot of stories that are waiting to be known and discovered!!!!


Today, 25th of August is the 38th anniversary of the fabulous album Born To Run. This album is maybe the best rock & roll album by Bruce. In my opinion, this record contais all the essential issues about life.

 The music that contains back us to a place where everything can happen, where dreams can be realised and back us into a place called the promised land where all can happen in a beautiful summer night.

 The song that explain us that the record is an invitation to that place, is Thunder Road, in that song all of our life expectatives are explained and told us that the only way to be happy and to feel free is to pull out of all the things and people that don't allow us to feel realised.

 The song that told us how important is the friendship in our way to catch the happiness we want are Tenth Avenue Freeze Out and Backstreets. The fist song is more positive telling us that everybody can get a second chance but Backstreets told us the same story with the rage and impotence of a person that has been lie by a friend.

  She's The One and Night are both songs about how to have a good time. She's The One descibe us all about love and Night is about a boy who only want to live his own life.

 The climax of the album comes with a tender version of Meeting Across The River and Jungleland. This two masterpieces talk about what happened in the streets of a town in danger.

But the song that have all the things that I told in only 4 minutes and 31 seconds, is Born To Run. That record contains all of the essential things, break the dogmas and create a new place where everybody can go. This song is a tender, lullaby, rocker, soft and lovely declaration of freedom.

If you haven't heard the whole Born To Run record in many time, today is a perfect day to do it and to revive those experiences. And if you are a lucky person and you have the 30th anniversay edition of the record, watch it today.

Because...( sorry, but I have to say it) TRAMPS LIKE US BABY WE WERE BORN TO RUN
