Runaway Dream : Born To Run And Bruce Springsteen'S American Vision
"When The Born To Run Album Came Out,The Record Was So Tied In With Who I Was,I Felt Like, Hey, I Felt Like I Was Born.I Felt Like It Was A Birthday."
--Bruce Springsteen, 1987
To millions of listeners, Born to Run is much more than a rock 'n' roll record - it's a shout from the street, an utterly unique work of art that joined Springsteen with other American troubadours such as Whitman and Steinbeck. The album made Springsteen a megastar, and confirmed him as the rocker who, more than any other, gives voice to our hopes, fears, and aspirations. Runaway Dream chronicles the making and significance of Springsteen's masterwork, deftly sketching the ambition, history, and personalities that created an enduring piece of Americana.
