Greetings from Asbury Park, . is the debut studio album by Bruce Springsteen. It was produced by Mike Appel and Jim Cretecos from July through September 1972 at the budget-priced 914 Sound Studios. Blinded by the Light" and "Spirit in the Night" were released as singles by Columbia, both failing to reach the .

He’s been influenced a lot by the Band, his arrangements tend to take on a Van Morrison tinge every now and then, and he sort of catarrh-mumbles his. ditties in a disgruntled mushmouth sorta like Robbie Robertson on Quaaludes with Dylan barfing down the back of his neck. It’s a tuff combination, but it’s only the beginning. Because what makes Bruce totally unique and cosmically surfeiting is his words.

Greetings from Asbury Park, . The first studio album from Bruce Springsteen. Although it featured musicians Bruce regularly played with and who would later become members of the E Street Band (Clarence Clemons, David Sancious and Garry Tallent), this was considered a solo outing. Blinded By The Light would later become a hit for Manfred Mann’s Earth Band. Bruce Springsteen's debut album found him squarely in the tradition of Bob Dylan: folk-based tunes arranged for an electric band featuring piano and organ (plus, in Springsteen's case, 1950s-style rock & roll tenor saxophone breaks), topped by acoustic guitar and a husky voice singing lyrics full of elaborate, even exaggerated imagery. But where Dylan had taken a world-weary, cynical tone, Springsteen was exuberant. His street scenes could be haunted and tragic, as they were in "Lost in the Flood," but they were still imbued with romanticism and a youthful energy.

Greetings from Asbury Park . is everything you’d expect Springsteen’s debut album to be. It’s an origin story that he crafted for himself, along with several tales of people he’s met–or imagined–along the way. While the album doesn’t hold Springsteen’s strongest fare, it’s plenty proof that his songs pack a punch when it comes to storytelling and includes one of the most pervasive motifs throughout his early works: cars and motorcycles, both literally and figuratively. As stated above, the album was well received; critics praised Springsteen for his illustrative lyric style and his dedication to a good rhyme scheme. Songs like Lost in the Flood and For You both show the beginnings of the evolution in musical structure that would lead to hits like Rosalita and Thunder Road. As such, a compromise was reached-the album was to have five songs with the band ("For You", "Growin' Up", "Does This Bus Stop at 82nd Street?" "It's Hard to be a Saint in the City", and "Lost in the Flood") and five solo songs ("Mary Queen of Arkansas", "The Angel", "Jazz Musician", "Arabian Nights", and "Visitation at Fort Horn").
