Breakaway

BREAK AWAY - V1 uncirculating
BREAKAWAY - V2 5:26 PROMISE

Note: "Break Away" (how it was spelled) was recorded the first night of the Darkness sessions, June 1, 1977, and never worked on again. No idea if any part of this take was used in the Promise release, because modern vocals, modern horns and modern singers have completely smothered any evidence. Features a modern horn section of Barry Danielian (trumpet), Stan Harrison (tenor sax), Dan Levine (trombone), Ed Manion (baritone sax) and Curt Ramm (trumpet) and backing vocals by the Alliance Singers (Tiffeny Andrews, Corinda Crawford, Michelle Moore, and Antoinette Savage), who contributed choir vocals on The Rising album, in addition to Patti Scialfa and Soozie Tyrell. There is at least one copy of Breakaway recorded at Atlantic Studios June 1977 somewhere, would be great to hear it. This hybrid version on the Promise sounds nothing like the other recordings circulating from that time period by Bruce Springsteen. This is NOT an outtake.
