Come on up for “The Rising”

“The Rising” is the song Bruce Springsteen wrote in response to the Sept. 11 attack/tragedy/horror. It was released on the CD of the same name, which contained reflections on different aspects of 9-11. “The Rising” was Springsteen’s 12th studio album, the first he had recorded in seven years, and his first with the E Street Band since 1984’s “Born in the U.S.A.”

The critically acclaimed CD debuted at #1 on the Billboard Hot 200 album chart, and earned Springsteen three Grammy Awards—for Best Rock Album, Best Rock Song and Best Male Rock Performance.

Here’s a performance by The Boss and the E Street Band from The Late Show with David Letterman.

And it was all pretty much a surprise though Asbury Park had seemed like a pretty swell album. I still listen to it. The concert was supposed to be in the Milo Bail ballroom but got moved for some reason. You were probably there. It sounded a lot like this:

    Yes, it really was something.

      Ha! You made me laugh. Thanks for the clip (it DID sound like that!) He played the Music Hall on my birthday in ’75 … and I can still see that LP’s cover amid the many in your vinyl collection. Thank you for rekindling the memories.
