Description & Features+

"The Promise: The Darkness On The Edge Of Town Story" comprises over six hours of film and more than two hours of audio across 3 CDs and 3 DVDs or 3 Blu-rays. The music and film are packaged within an 80-page spiral-bound notebook containing facsimiles from Springsteen's own notebooks from the original recording sessions, which include alternate lyrics, song ideas, recording details, and personal notes in addition to a new essay by Springsteen and never-before-seen photographs.

Containing a wealth of previously unreleased material, "The Promise: The Darkness On The Edge Of Town Story" offers an unprecedented look into Springsteen's creative process during a defining moment in his career.

"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 "The Promise" - two discs containing a total of 21 previously-unreleased songs from the "Darkness" recording sessions - songs that, as Springsteen writes, "perhaps could have/should have been released after "Born To Run" and before the collection of songs that "Darkness on the Edge of Town" became."

Highlights of "The Promise" include the extraordinary rock version of "Racing in the Street," the never-before-released original recordings of "Because the Night" and "Fire," 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." 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."
