Notes from info file:
Every track edited, in the beginning this was going to be a 3 cd set - I had originally 56 tracks (edited), but ended up using only these 14. I tried to get the best possible sound quality but still include as much variation as possible - some tracks sound a bit worse.
This is just something I did every now and then when I got tired of editing the live shows.
"There were two outtakes from Born To Run: 'Linda Let Me Be The One' is on Tracks, and there was another one called 'Walking in The Street' which I would have liked to have put on, but I couldn't find the master. We searched and searched. It might have been simply recorded over, because in those days, if something wasn't going to make it, you're going to need that tape so you recorded something else over the top." - B. Springsteen, MOJO Magazine interview 1999.
