On February 21st, five Bruce Springsteen albums are set to be released on vinyl for the first time in over a decade, via Columbia Records/Legacy Recordings.

The Rising, Devils & Dust, Live In New York City, Live In Dublin and 18 Tracks comprise the majority of Springsteen’s recorded output from the beginning of the millennium – a period that saw the long-awaited reunion of the E Street Band. Each album has been transferred from the original source masters, allowing for the highest quality pressings possible.

The Rising (2002) will be reissued on 2LP vinyl for the first time in over 15 years. The album offered messages of healing and redemption in the wake of 9/11, and saw The E Street Band re-unite in the studio for the first time in nearly a decade.

Devils & Dust (2005) comes to vinyl for the first time since its original release on the format. “The songs are closely observed country noir vignettes,,” Hot Press’s Peter Murphy wrote in his review of the album, “the testimonies of losers reaching a detente with the fates and promising to do better.”

Live In New York City (2001) arrives on 3LPs for the first time since its original pressing. The set chronicles Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band’s much-anticipated reunion tour, recorded over two nights at Madison Square Garden in the summer of 2000.

Live In Dublin (2007) will be released on vinyl for the first time ever, a 2LP snapshot of Bruce Springsteen’s work with The Sessions Band. The album includes classic folk songs popularised by Pete Seeger, plus radically rearranged versions of Bruce Springsteen favourites.

Finally, 18 Tracks (1999) is coming to vinyl for the first time in over 20 years. The 2LP set features rarities like the original ‘Born In The U.S.A.’ demo and exclusive songs ‘Trouble River’, a 1999 re-recording of ‘The Promise’ and Springsteen’s original version of ‘The Fever’, made famous by Southside Johnny and The Asbury Jukes.

The Rising are no longer a 5 piece band; but a tight as a drum 3 piece with Chantelle McAteer at the fore, singing and playing an assortment of keyboards, guitarist Chris Logan and Brian Mellors providing a rock solid bass behind them (drummers and pedal-steel players are added extras).
The aptly titled Moving On opens the album; and the feisty trio throw down the gauntlet not just to their doubters, Chantelle sings as if her life depends on it.
The tempo slows down on next song Forgive and Forget; but the mood of the broken hearted singer remains just as raw, just as it does on the bitter sweet Rebound follows in a similar ‘young love gone wrong path’ path; but is a whole lot more traditionally Country in style and will have them dancing in the aisles whenever played live.
While The Rising will easily fit in alongside The Shires, Jess and The Bandits etc. they certainly have their very own take on what they do, After listening to this album on and off over the last few weeks it’s apparent that this trio who wrote or at east had a hand in writing every song here; write from the heart and their own experiences, both biter and sweet.

Rebound is the first single from The Rising’s new album new album Moving On (Released August 3rd 2018).

The album is called “Moving On” and it reflects the various struggles we went through during the time of making the album. From life-changing breakups, near death experience, changing band members and new life being brought into the world.
