Bruce Springsteen 'Thunder Road' VH1 Storytellers

New Jersey native Bruce Springsteen finally found recognition in 1975 after years of effort (a decade) and brought great excitement into the world of rock and roll in the mid-seventies.

He signed on to Columbia Records in 1972, bringing his New Jersey bandmates with him. They released Greetings from Asbury Park, N.J. in 1973. In 1975, Born to Run was released to critical acclaim (with a huge audience already behind him) and the album hit the top 10.

Thunder Road, was the opening track on Bruce Springsteen's classic album Born to Run, and is considered to be one of his best songs. The 1975 album, Born to Run, was recorded at The Record Plant, in NYC in 1974-1975, and was produced by Bruce Springsteen, Mike Appel, and Jon Landau, Columbia Records.

Springsteen, AKA, "The Boss," plays guitar (Fender Telecaster, Fender Esquire, Takamine), piano, and harmonica (Hohner Marine Band Harmonica).
