"'Darkness' was my 'samurai' record," Springsteen writes, "stripped to the frame and ready to rumble. But the music that got left behind was substantial." For the first time, fans will have access to two discs containing a total of 21 previously-unreleased songs. Highlights include the extraordinary rock version of "Racing in the Street," the never-before-released original recordings of "Because the Night," "Fire," and "Rendezvous," the supreme pop opus "Someday (We'll Be Together)," the hilarious "Ain'tGood Enough for You," the superb soul-based vocal performance on "The Brokenhearted," the utterly haunting "Breakaway,? and the fully orchestrated masterpiece and title song "The Promise."
