Bruce Springsteen ‎– Greetings From Asbury Park, N.J. – KC 31903 – LP Record
Greetings from Asbury Park, N.J. is the debut studio album by Bruce Springsteen. It was produced by Mike Appel and Jim Cretecos from June through October 1972 at the budget-priced 914 Sound Studios. The album was released January 5, 1973, by Columbia Records to average sales but positive critical reviews.Greetings from Asbury Park, N.J. first charted in the United Kingdom on June 15, 1985, in the wake of Springsteen’s Born in the U.S.A. tour arriving in Britain; it remained in the top 100 for ten weeks. In 2003, the album was ranked at No. 379 in Rolling Stone’s 500 Greatest Albums of All Time and in 2013 Rolling Stone named Greetings from Asbury Park, N.J. as one of the “100 Greatest Debut Albums of All-Time”. On November 22, 2009, Greetings from Asbury Park, N.J. was played in its entirety for the first time by Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band, at the HSBC Arena in Buffalo, New York, to celebrate the last show of the Working on a Dream tour.Springsteen and his first manager Mike Appel recorded the album at the low-priced, out-of-the-way 914 Sound Studios to save as much as possible of the Columbia Records advance, and cut most of the songs during the last week of June 1972.There was a dispute not long after the record was recorded—Appel and John Hammond preferred the solo tracks, while Springsteen preferred the band songs. As such, a compromise was reached—the album was to feature five songs with the band (“For You”, “Growin’ Up”, “Does This Bus Stop at 82nd Street?” “It’s Hard to be a Saint in the City”, and “Lost in the Flood”) and five solo songs (“Mary Queen of Arkansas”, “The Angel”, “Jazz Musician”, “Arabian Nights” and “Visitation at Fort Horn”).
