Born to Run was Bruce Springsteen’s third studio album and his commercial breakthrough success. Released in 1975, the album featured two singles: “Born to Run” and “Tenth Avenue Freeze-Out”. The songs “Thunder Road” and “Jungleland” also became hits and are staples of Springsteen’s live show to this day. The album was almost universally praised by critics, and peaked at #3 on the Billboard 200 chart in 1975. It has been certified triple-platinum by the RIAA as of 1986, and Rolling Stone magazine ranked it at #18 on its list of the 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.
This 30th Anniversary Edition of Born to Run was remastered by acclaimed engineer Bob Ludwig, working directly with Springsteen and longtime engineer Toby Scott, newly transferred from the original analogue masters using the Plangent Process playback system.
