He Leans On The Hood Telling Racin’ Stories

One of the mysteries of having a record collection for a number of years is where do some of the records disappear to???

I bought this on vinyl in the early 80s (shortly after discovering Springsteen thanks to “The River”) and immediately fell in love with the story telling in his lyrics – here they were so much more expansive than in his (then) later work.

So what happened to the vinyl?

Well it disappeared somewhere and recently I reintroduced this into my collection, this time on CD. The tracks all still work for me and, on a personal level, remind me of my late teens when the only real worry I had was ‘do I have enough beer money?’
