Born To Run - Studio Sessions - Potential Album Sequences

Potential Album Sequences

Some of the songs listed below are included on early draft listings of what Springsteen imagined "Album #3" (i.e, Born To Run) might look like. Bruce noted song timings for several of these tracks, so presumably recordings of some kind existed. Some of these lists are known, all apparently composed at some point in 1974.

Listings #2 and #3 appear to be composed on the same sheet of paper. It is unknown whether the two lists are contemporary, or if Springsteen returned to the same page some time later to add a second track list. Source for these two lists is a display at the From Asbury Park to the Promised Land: The Life and Music of Bruce Springsteen exhibition, a typed version of which is reproduced in issue 89 of Backstreets magazine. A sixth draft listing includes the songs "Angel Baby", [Saga of the] "Architect Angel", "Thundercrack", "Vision (sic) at Fort Horn", "Two Hearts" [In True Waltz Time], "Here She Comes", "Glory Road", "Janey Needs A Shooter", and "Jungleland". This particular listing dates from very early in the sessions, perhaps as early as the spring of 1974.
