The Wild, the Innocent and the E Street Shuffle (Vinyl)
Bruce Springsteen’s sophomore album featured a more cinematic style of songwriting, with the kind of outsized suburban characters that would become Springsteen’s calling card (“4th of July, Asbury Park (Sandy),” “Incident on 57th Street,” “Rosalita (Come Out Tonight)”). It also featured a crucial sonic addition to the nascent E Street Band: organist Danny Federici joined keyboardist David Sancious, bassist Garry Tallent, drummer Vini “Mad Dog” Lopez and saxophonist Clarence Clemons in the band’s ranks.
