"Darkness was my 'samurai' record," Springsteen writes, "stripped to the frame and ready to rumble. But the music that got left behind was substantial." Apparently so: even after the wealth of material on Tracks, a whole lot more has been waiting in the vault. The Promise presents 21 previously unreleased tracks from the Darkness recording sessions, songs that, as Springsteen writes, "perhaps could have/should have been released after Born To Run and before the collection of songs that Darkness on the Edge of Town became."
