Chimes of Freedom is a 1988 live EP released to support the multi-artist Human Rights Now! tour in benefit of Amnesty International. This tour was announced near the end of a first-set radio broadcast during Springsteen's July 3, 1988 show in Stockholm, Sweden, after which Bob Dylan's "Chimes Of Freedom" was performed. The performance of "Chimes of Freedom" on this EP peaked at number 16 on the Mainstream Rock charts in mid-late 1988. The other tracks were also recorded on earlier American stops of Springsteen and the E Street Band's 1988 Tunnel of Love Express Tour, which also featured The Miami Horns. Most notable is the slowed-down acoustic rendition of "Born to Run." "Be True" was originally released as a studio recording on a vinyl single as the B-side to "Sherry Darling" in 1980. In the original vinyl and cassette release, all tracks were at full length, while on compact disc "Chimes Of Freedom" and "Tougher Than The Rest" were edited for length. The format used was the three-inch CD single, which limited the length that could be used. When re-released in the full size five-inch CD, the edited versions remained. Some later CD re-issues have restored it to full length, as well as the version released to iTunes.
