Bruce Springsteen will be re-issuing multiple studio and live albums on vinyl next month. On February 21, five Springsteen albums will be released on album for the first time in over a decade. Many of these albums are near impossible to find on vinyl today and if you do happen to come across one, it will cost you a pretty penny with some going for over $300+. The albums being released next month are:

  • The Rising (2002) will be reissued on 2LP vinyl for the first time in over 15 years. The album offered messages of healing and redemption in the wake of the devastating attacks on 9/11, and saw The E Street Band re-unite in the studio for the first time in nearly a decade. 
  • Devils & Dust (2005) comes to vinyl for the first time since its original release on the format. The 2LP set remains one of Springsteen's starkest studio albums, recalling "The Ghost of Tom Joad" a decade earlier. 
  • Live In New York City (2001) arrives on 3LPs for the first time since its original pressing. The set chronicles Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band's much-anticipated reunion tour, recorded over two nights at Madison Square Garden in the summer of 2000.
  • Live In Dublin (2007) will be released on vinyl for the first time ever, a 2LP snapshot of Bruce Springsteen's work with The Sessions Band, including classic folk songs popularized by Pete Seeger and radically rearranged versions of Bruce Springsteen favorites. 
  • 18 Tracks (1999) is coming to vinyl for the first time in over 20 years. The 2LP set features rarities like the original "Born In The U.S.A." demo and exclusive songs "Trouble River," a 1999 re-recording of "The Promise" and Springsteen's original version of "The Fever," made famous by Southside Johnny and The Asbury Jukes.
