The Born to Run 30th Anniversary Box Set includes three separate discs including a stunning DVD of the legendary 1975 Hammersmith Odeon COncert; a dvd of Wings for Wheels: The Making of Born to Run, with never before seen archival footage and new interviews with all the band members and many others; and a CD of the brilliantly remastered Born To Run.

Personally supervised by Bruce Springsteen and his longtime manager Jon Landau, the Born to Run 30th Anniversary box set includes "Hammersmith Odeon, London '75," an exhilarating film of Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band's legendary 1975 concert at London's Hammersmith Odeon; a new documentary film, Wings for Wheels: The Making of Born to Run; the classic album in remastered CD form; and a 48-page booklet of previously unpublished photographs with an introduction penned by Springsteen.

Spanning roughly two hours and ten minutes, the November 18, 1975 concert at London's Hammersmith Odeon finds an epic performance of sixteen Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band classics, including "Thunder Road," "Tenth Avenue Freeze Out," "Jungleland," and "Born To Run," as well as such other favorites such as "Kitty's Back" and "Rosalita." The multiple-camera film of the complete concert will be available in its entirety and its original sequence, as newly edited by Emmy Award Winner Thom Zimny. "Hammersmith Odeon, London '75" is the only full-length concert film ever released of Bruce and the E Street Band's first 25 years.

The ninety-minute documentary Wings For Wheels: The Making of Born To Run chronicles the definitive story of the creation of Born To Run, from songwriting to production and beyond. Wings For Wheels boasts archival film never shown publicly, including substantial footage of Springsteen and the E Street Band recording the album, 1975 concert film and other footage shot between 1973 and 1975. The film also features exclusive footage of Springsteen playing solo piano and guitar versions of songs from Born To Run.

In addition, Wings For Wheels incorporates newly filmed interviews with Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band, including former members who played on the album, as well as the production team. The DVD of Wings For Wheels: The Making of Born to Run ends with stunning bonus footage of three songs recorded live at Los Angeles' Ahmanson Theater in 1973: "Spirit In The Night," "Wild Billy's Circus Story" and " Thundercrack."

Finally, the box set features a CD of the newly remastered Born To Run, as well as a remarkable 48-page photo album of previously unpublished photographs with an introduction written by Springsteen. This is the first time Springsteen has allowed any of his catalogue to be fully remastered and he enlisted his longtime mastering guru Bob Ludwig to handle the job. The newly remastered version presents the masterpiece with striking clarity and presence. Widely regarded as one of the cornerstone albums in rock and roll history, Born To Run has been recognized by many international polls as one of the greatest albums of all time. It has sold nearly nine million albums worldwide. Of Born To Run, which was originally released August 25, 1975, Rolling Stone wrote, "It is a magnificent album that pays off on every bet ever placed on him—and it should crack his future wide open."

Muze PNote BORN TO RUN is the album that turned Springsteen from a phenomenon into a superstar. His first couple of releases found Bruce working out his fascination with Dylan and Van Morrison on earthy, wordy, folk-rock-R&B tunes full of soul and punch. On BORN TO RUN, Springsteen became even more ambitious, synthesizing Spectorian production with Orbison-esque drama and Duane Eddy-influenced guitar work, creating something grand enough to be called rock opera but too proletarian to ever claim that title.
Muze PNote BORN TO RUN was also the first album where the Boss began to crystallize his recurring theme of working class America's doomed-but-passionate rage against its circumstances. With the earnestness and emotion that bursts forth from Springsteen's street poems, the album is never less than exhilarating, and songs like "Tenth Avenue Freeze-Out" (a tongue-in-cheek history of the E Street Band) provide humor. "She's The One" puts the Bo Diddley beat to its most effective post-'50s use, and the title track is Springsteen's quintessential underdog epic.
