Today, Bruce Springsteen announced a brand-new limited-edition and numbered vinyl box set of dubbed The Album Collection Vol. 2. The compilation stands as a follow-up to 2014’s The Album Collection Vol. 1, which cataloged Springsteen’s live and studio output from 1973 to 1984. With this new collection, Springsteen offers a sampling of live performances and studio recordings from 1987 to 1996 over the course of 10 LPs.
As explained by The Album’s webpage:
All four of Bruce Springsteen’s studio albums from this period were certified gold, platinum or multi-platinum by the RIAA, with three reaching the Top 5 of the Billboard 200. The Vol. 2 collection follows the 2014 release of Bruce Springsteen: The Album Collection Vol. 1, 1973-1984, which included newly remastered editions of the first seven Bruce Springsteen studio albums.
The Album Collection Vol. 2 contains a number of classic albums and live recordings from 1987 to 1996, all of which have been newly remastered for vinyl by renowned engineer Bob Ludwig and Springsteen’s longtime engineer Toby Scott. The set includes 1987’s Tunnel of Love, 1988’s Chimes of Freedom EP, 1992’s Human Touch and Lucky Town, 1993’s In Concert/MTV Plugged, and 1995’s The Ghost of Tom Joad. Notably, the collection will also include the first-ever vinyl pressing of 1996’s Blood Brothers EP. As noted in the box’s description, “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.”
