The Unknown: Bruce Springsteen - Angels + Sky

There are American legends...then there is Bruce Springsteen.  He is the rock and roll icon that legends aspire to be.  Where most artists speak to the people, Bruce has always spoken for the people.  It's like his music and his lyrics are what would would come out of America's mouth if the population stood up and sang out as a whole.  Many believe that Bruce has become more political as he's grown older...and that he should stay neutral as he did in his early years.  Those are just detractors who never knew Bruce to begin with.  Bruce has never had a political "agenda," but at the same time, he always fought for what he believed in.  On his debut album, Bruce spoke out against the treatment of Vietnam vets.  Bruce didn't wait until his elder years to take jabs at the powers that be...he came out of the blocks swinging.  Bruce has never slowed down.  He has never sold out.  He has never backed down.  His resilience is what makes his journey so powerful.

So my wife just picked this one up on vinyl, its real nice. Really thick, well packaged. It comes w/ a cd of the album which is really cool. However, the two deluxe bonus tracks are no where to be seen in this entire thing. I guess thats fine and all, because maybe time restraint made it so that they couldn't fit all the trains on the record with the same quality. But don't you think they'd give you the deluxe version for buying this like 25 dollars 180 gram double LP edition? its weird things like this that just baffle me.

I believe if you buy the smashing pumpkins reissues you get a download with all the bonus stuff from the extra disc in the box sets. I could be wrong but I'm fairly sure thats true.

just a thought.
