BORN TO RUN TURNS 40
8/25/15

By Bud Scoppa

Born to Run turns 40 today, and for many of us old-timers, that is a very big deal. Karen Glauber is one of them. “I know the West Coast born-and-raised contingent might not care,” she say. “but for a girl raised in an industrial town in Pennsylvania (near Bethlehem Steel), this record was everything.”

For me, less than two years removed from my former home in New Jersey, hearing this record for the first time in L.A. brought with it a palpable sense of community and closure. But it wasn’t till three months later that the magnificence of this record and the artists who created it was fully brought home. The occasion was Bruce and the E Street Band’s four-night stand at the Roxy.I had a great seat on opening night, Oct. 16, and I filed a full report.
