Bruce Springsteen was a young man for the span of two albums. His twin releases from 1973, Greetings From Asbury Park, . and The Wild, the Innocent, and the E Street Shuffle, were populated by teenage tramps who skipped school, acted cool, stayed out all night, and, generally, felt all right. By the time Born to Run was released in the summer of 1975, Springsteen was starting to put his childish things away. The most immediate selling point of Chapter and Verse, a new compilation accompanying Springsteen’s memoir, Born to Run, is that it extends Bruce’s on-record adolescence by five songs. In addition to the 13 album tracks he selected to represent his growth as a songwriter, the set also features, for the first time on an officially sanctioned Springsteen release, music predating his tenure on Columbia Records.

These tracks provide an insight into Bruce Springsteen’s early efforts and musical influences when he was young. The opening number, Baby I is very much a track of its time, you can hear the obvious influence of early pop bands such as The Beatles, The Yard Birds and The Beach Boys. This is not surprising considering the song was written and recorded in 1966 when Bruce was a mere 16 years old and was with the band The Castiles. However, when you move onto the next track, You Can’t Judge a Book by the Cover, there is a sharp change to a more R’n’B sound as The Castiles cover a Willie Dixon.
