Courtesy of a great music resource, NRP music, you have a chance to listen to selected albums in full, before and up to their official release date.

Currently on the site is Bruce Springsteen’s The PromiseThe Lost Sessions: Darkness on the Edge of Town. *** Sorry this option has now expired ***  Bruce and the band where embroiled in a lawsuit with their managers after the release of their worldwide hit Born to Run which stopped them recording a follow up album, but it didn’t stop them from writing and touring it for the next three years and nearly 70+ songs later Darkness was released in 1978. The promise is a collection of early versions of the tracks that made it to the album, many clearly influenced by their hero Elvis Presely, who the band were obsessed with and who died during the writing process.

You can read more of Will Hermes story behind this collection on NRP Music site and listen to the album upto the 16th November, so best be quick.
