I never felt the band learned to play in the studio before The River. On Badlands or Darkness, the live versions are the way that stuff was supposed to sound. Bruce disbanded the E Street Band inand embarked on a new phase of his Album), which proved to be far from prolific.

After releasing Human Touch and Lucky Town as simultaneous albums in nearly five years on from their predecessor, Tunnel of LoveBruce toured with a new, and nameless, band in both and There was a brief reunion between Bruce and the E Street Band infor a recording session that provided some new songs for a Greatest Hits album. I saw friends and family struggling to lead decent, productive lives and I felt an everyday kind of heroism in this.

Columbia expected long-time fans of Bruce to buy a CD that was mostly old material, that they presumably already owned, in order to obtain four previously unreleased tracks, but the return of the E Street Band was pleasing.

Bruce and the band filmed some promotional videos together, but a few months later Bruce released The Ghost of Tom Joad as a virtually solo album although there were some contributions from other musicians, including Danny Federici, Patti Scialfa, and Garry Tallent. Bruce also set off on a lengthy solo tour, with the E Street Band left at a loose end.

There were, however, some rather odd choices, in terms of both inclusions and omissions. There was also a live version of Rendezvous, but from a concert on The River tour in This still left many songs from the Darkness sessions unreleased, and there was widespread surprise to put it mildly that The Promise had not appeared on Tracks, while space had been found for many lesser songs.

There were five pieces from the Darkness sessions, including a previously unknown version of The Promise, which was slow, stark, and awesome. Tracks was followed in by 18 Tracks. Four years after Greatest Hits, fans of Bruce were given the choice by Columbia of buying an album that was mostly taken from Tracks in order to acquire three previously unreleased recordings.

Many people did so, as 18 Tracks featured The Promise, with the song finally being officially available. Instead it was a new solo recording, fromwith Bruce simply singing and playing a piano. Bruce had carried out some overdubs for the recordings on Tracks, and touchingly recalled Vincent Lopez, sacked from the band infor a beefing up of Thundercrack.

High hopes of a lasting reunion between Bruce and the E Street Band, planted inreached fruition with a world tour during and The next few years saw regular record releases and concerts by Bruce, including The Rising world tour with the E Street Band, during and These two discs were basically an expanded update of Greatest Hits, with 12 songs appearing in each collection.

The compilation featured three pieces from Darkness, namely Badlands, the title track, and The Promised Land. In his liner notes, Bruce mentioned a few omitted songs that fans might think should have been there, with Racing in the Street being one of these. The disc of rare or previously unreleased material that completed The Essential Bruce Springsteen could be seen as an extension of Tracks, but the earliest material came fromand there was not anything there related to Darkness.

Two years later another re-packaging arrived, as Born to Run: 30th Anniversary Edition was issued in A digitally remastered CD version of the album was combined with two DVDs, one being Wings for Wheels: The Making of Born to Run, which was a documentary, while the other disc was film of a famous or infamous concert at the Hammersmith Odeon, from a few weeks after release of the original album.

Admittedly few songs other than the eight featured on the album had been recorded, but there were some extra tracks available, plus interesting alternative versions of the songs that appeared on Born to Run.

Plans for a Darkness reissue were put on hold, although at the start of John Landau confirmed that a re-release was intended when time permitted. An expanded version, with 18 tracks, was released in Europe in June The collection was doubtless bought by completists, who already owned some of the individual recordings several times. The new Greatest Hits featured tracks starting in and concluding inbut there was an eighteen year gap between and Both the initial and expanded albums featured Badlands and Darkness on the Edge of Town.

At the end ofJohn Landau specifically said that a Darkness box set was 93 per cent complete. In August, Columbia announced details of a Darkness box set, the large scale of which had fans excited. The next few weeks saw the cinema release of a documentary film, which would be included in the box set, and the trailing of both audio and video clips from the collection on the Internet. The presentation is impressive, with the box holding the book, into which the individual discs are inserted at intervals.

The CD of Darkness on the Edge of Town is a digitally remastered version, produced by Bob Ludwig on June 2thirty two years to the day after the original album was released. There is a clear improvement in the sound quality on the new version. The original record is followed by The Promise, a double CD, which was simultaneously released as a stand-alone album. This is a hypothetical album that could have been released between Born to Run and Darkness.

The Promise features 22 songs, which were outtakes from the Darkness sessions, with several tracks having been partly re-recorded, apart from Save My Love, which was a new recording in of a song written ahead of Darkness. The highlights of the album are the title track and Because the Night. The appearance of The Promise meant that a version of this song from had finally received official release, but there were flaws, as one verse was missing without explanation, while the addition of a string arrangement detracted from the starkness of the original design.

The studio original of Fire was longer than the live track fromwith the former lacking some of the greatness of the latter. On the other hand, the studio Rendezvous was as good as the live version from that had appeared on Tracks. The Way featured as a hidden song at the end of the album, on the same track as City at Night.

The five songs from the Darkness sessions that appeared on Tracks were not used again on The Promise. The book within the box set opens with two essays by Bruce. The second essay is a new piece from Bruce, in which he writes about the choices that led to the content of the Darkness album, and the discarding of much substantial material.

With a slight exaggeration, Bruce suggests that the songs on Darkness, the relevant outtakes on Tracks, plus the songs now on The Promise could have filled four albums. Bruce also writes about the musical influences that helped shape the songs recorded during the Darkness sessions. There is also a separate insert with the 1956 - Budapest Is Rising - Various - Chess In Concert (CD of The Promise album.

This is a fascinating documentary about the Darkness sessions, combining film of Bruce, the band, and the production team in the studio, with recollections from the same participants filmed in recent years. 1956 - Budapest Is Rising - Various - Chess In Concert (CD black and white film from the studio, Bruce is shown facing the frustrations of attempting to deliver his vision, something that, supported by the band and production team, he eventually achieved.

The cover for the DVD has a photo of Bruce sat at a petrol station, in the night, which had been considered for the cover of Darkness. During the film, Bruce talks about his obsessive compulsive methods. The second DVD features two pieces, present and past. Taking place inthis is a spirited show, but its setting at an empty theatre in Asbury Park is rather unusual. The aim was to re-create the stark atmosphere of the album, by playing the songs without an audience.

With the songs having developed in live performance over the years, Bruce had realised the suggestion he made about re-recording Darkness inalbeit in film rather than on a record. These include a portrayal of a studio version of The Promise.

The quality of the film is not quite as good as at Phoenix, but the performance by Bruce and the E Street Band is amazing. The response from fans, many of whom had been hoping for something like this for more than thirty years, was ecstatic.

Monday, 3 May General Election Last year I wrote here about the opportunism of the Conservative Party in exploiting Album) MP's expenses scandal. Now that we are in the Election campaign, as a member of the Labour Party I feel that Gordon Brown and the leadership should be more combative towards the Conservative Party. My first ever published writing was a critical history of the Conservatives, which appeared inwith a second edition following in The clear villain of the book was Margaret Thatcher, the Prime Minister at the time it was written.

Perhaps the tone was a bit too strident, but twenty one years on from first publication, I stand by most of the following: During the General Election campaign the Conservative Party concentrated on Labour's troubled time in office and their own alternative, which resembled that of Their manifesto was called Time For a Change.

This was an unlikely title for a Conservative manifesto. The Election was held on May 3, and the Conservatives won seats to Labour'swhile the Liberals won 11 seats and the others Thatcher now became Britain's first woman Prime Minister.

Thatcher's Government initially represented a balance between the adherents of her approach and the sceptics. She excluded Heath, who was to be a constant critic in the following years. This was developed by Milton Friedman, an economist from the United States.

It was a theory that had only been been properly tested by one of the world's most barbaric regimes, the Fascist military dictatorship of Chile.

The result had been a spectacular failure. Thatcher's economic strategy involved reduced public expenditure, reduced taxation — especially for the ruling class — an attack on the trade unions, and privatisation. The result was mass unemployment. When Thatcher took power unemployment was above one million.

She increased it to two million in Augustand then three million in January Thatcher showed herself to be authoritarian, inflexible and uncaring. Thatcher followed an aggressive foreign policy. This involved hostility to the Soviet Union. At the end of the Soviet Union invaded Afghanistan. She was involved in constant disputes with the EEC.
