  15 euro for 7 great Bruce Springsteen albums is a bargain!

-Nice red box
-On the backside a page with the pictures of the albums + de name of all the songs
-In box a paper sleeve for every album
-Extra booklet with a little bit of info about the album

Again, for 15 euro's its a steel, it's for free!

  10 stars if I could

This is an outstanding deal, or perhaps astounding that these would go so cheap. For Bruce fans like me, all 8 albums are some of the greatest of all-time, but even for a new fan or an indifferent fan this is a shockingly good buy. There are at least two classic albums, and at least 50% of the rest should hit the right note with any fan open to The Boss. This is actually perfect. For us who have the collection already, buying this just for your car or travel is probably the best musical deal I have ever seen.

Fantastic, and a steal. Buy while you can.

Seven CD's in a neat little box set from a true master, and at this oh so small price, I feel like I'm stealing it, of course it's brilliant, we have heard it all before, and it's pure musical bliss !!!

Firstly lets get the errors out of the way. This is an 8 CD collection comprised of his first seven albums, The River was a double album.

I first discovered Bruce Springsteen when I was about ten and my brother through a copy of The River at me, "you want this, it's rubbish?"

Having no means of income I was happy to take any album that was free, but thinking it was rubbish it took me a few days to actually listen to it, however when I did my whole life changed. I discovered that The River was not only anything but rubbish it was the album that would change my life. Within a year I would own all of Springsteen's albums, and since that day I have listened to Bruce at least weekly for the last thirty years.

And this collection represents a re-birth for Bruce's early material. Not since they were available on vinyl has the Boss sounded so good or allowed to sonically run so free.

There is too much material on these seven albums to give a comprehensive review of each, so all I will say is this should be the starting point for any youngster wanting to learn how good ol' fashioned Rock should sound, and it should be a mantle piece for any fans of Bruce already kicking around these shores.

This is the Boss how he is supposed to sound!
