A collection of unreleased tracks recorded during the sessions for Springsteen's classic 1978 album "Darkness On The Edge Of Town". On this release, Springsteen's dark lyricism is in full flow; these songs sound like a fully realized album, and not just a collection of outtakes. 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't Good 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." All 21 songs have been mixed by Springsteen's long-time collaborator Bob Clearmountain. According to long-time manager/producer Jon Landau, "There isn't a weak card in this deck. 'The Promise' is simply a great listening experience."
