The Live Series: Songs of Friendship

In December, Columbia Legacy Recordings surprised Bruce Springsteen fans with a digital album of live rarities called The Live Series: Songs of  the Road.  Now, The Live Series continues with Songs of Friendship, which brings even more rarities to digital and streaming for the first time ever.  Culled from Springsteen’s extensive vault of live material that was previously only available from the on-demand site, the 15-track set spotlights iconic tracks about the unbreakable bonds of friendship.

While the previous volume mixed solo and E Street Band recordings, Songs of Friendship fittingly features only band performances.  Four decades’ worth of live greatness is on-display here, from the rousing New Year’s ’75 version of “Spirit in the Night” and the East Rutherford 1984 take on “Glory Days,” to the sparse “If I Should Fall Behind” from 2014 and the 2017 outing of the obscure “Janey, Don’t You Lose Heart.”  Altogether, the collection is a testament to the power of Springsteen’s live shows, the talents of The E Street Band, and the enduring quality of these songs.  So take a listen and share it with a friend or blood brother.

The collection is available now from digital download and streaming services, including Amazon, iTunes, and Spotify.
