On May 18th, Columbia Records/Legacy Recordings will release Bruce Springsteen: The Album
Collection Vol. 2, 1987-1996, a limited-edition, numbered boxed set comprised of material recorded
and released by Springsteen for Columbia Records during that period. The long out-of- print LPs are
available remastered for the first time on vinyl. In addition to Springsteen's four studio albums from the
era, the boxed set includes a special 12-inch of 1988's live EP Chimes of Freedom, Springsteen's 1993 two-
LP MTV Plugged special, and the first-ever vinyl release of the 1996 Blood Brothers EP for a total of 10
discs. All of this material comes in recreations of the original packaging, accompanied by a 60-page book
featuring rarely seen photos, memorabilia and original press clippings from the period.
For The Album Collection Vol. 2, remastered albums from acclaimed engineer Bob Ludwig and
Springsteen's longtime engineer Toby Scott have been pressed on vinyl for the first time. The albums
were transferred from the original analogue masters using the Plangent Process playback system. 1987's
Tunnel of Love and 1992's Human Touch have also been expanded across two LPs to maximize audio
The Vol. 2 collection
follows the 2014 release of The Album Collection Vol. 1, 1973-1984, which included
newly remastered editions of the first seven Bruce Springsteen studio albums.
