Bruce Springsteen: The River – Another Bruce classic, this was released in 1980 and is Bruce’s only double album. It features his first top ten single ‘Hungry Heart’, which got to number five, he originally wrote it for The Ramones but was talked into keeping it for himself. Bruce recorded quite a bit music during the sessions, which were all released in a 4 CD disc extravaganza a couple of years ago.
