Lost Masters Volume 04
Big Expendables - Songs That Got Away
1. Roulette acoustic demo
Bruce Springsteen, Home Demo. Holmdel, New Jersey circa 1979. This is Bruce at home actually creating the song. Fascinating.
2. Roulette original version
Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band. Power Station Studios, New York City, April 3, 1979. Completely different version to the one finally released in 1988, including vastly different lyrics and an alternate mix. This original version features prominent keyboards by Mr. Bittan and a much more "accusatory" vocal by the Boss. Hard to imagine someone thinking they could improve upon this. They didn't.
3. Protection Mix #2
Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band, The Hit Factory, New York City, August 1, 1983. The full E Street Band completed take of song written for Donna Summer. Complete final take. 1st generation from 24-tracks master.
