This third album in 1975 was a crucial one for Springsteen. With disappointing sales on his first two records, ‘Greetings from Asbury Park, N.J.’ and ‘The Wild, the Innocent & the E Street Shuffle’, Bruce needed his breakthrough.

The final product, however, would go on to rank among the greatest albums of all time.
