Greetings From Asbury Park, N.J. 

He slingshoots his random rivets at you and you can catch as many as you want or let ’em all clatter right off the wall which maybe’s where they belong anyway. Bruce Springsteen is a bold new talent with more than a mouthful to say, and one look at the pic on the back will tell you he’s got the glam to go places in this Gollywoodlawn world to boot.

Lester Bangs, Rolling Stone , July 5, 1973

January 5, 1973 ~ With a boulder on his shoulder, feelin’ kinda older, 23-year-old Bruce Springsteen releases his first album, Greetings From Asbury Park, N.J.
