Bruce Springsteen Surprises Fans With Remastered Albums Release

Without any previous notice, Bruce Springsteen surprised fans on Tuesday by releasing remastered versions of ten of his albums on iTunes under the "Mastered For iTunes" program.

All of the albums were remastered by Bob Ludwig and the Plangent Processes was used on five of the ten albums to convert them from analog to digital.

The new process was used on 'Greetings from Asbury Park, NJ,' 'The Wild, The Innocent & The E Street Shuffle,' 'Born To Run,' 'Darkness On The Edge Of Town,' and 'Born In The U.S.A.'

The other albums that were reissued were 'We Shall Overcome - The Seeger Sessions', 'Working On A Dream,' 'The Promise,' 'Wrecking Ball,' and 'High Hopes'.

Springsteen's camp sent out these details about the Plangent Processes: Over the last two years, under the supervision of Bruce Springsteen and engineer Toby Scott, Jamie Howarth of Plangent Processes utilized new audio technology capable of repairing pitch and timing errors embedded in analog recordings to transfer Springsteen's early album with improved definition. Plangent Processes' unique technology for archiving original source tapes eliminates many of the inevitable distortions inherent in vintage recordings, resulting in greater transparency, detail and clarity. After the transfers were made, they were remastered by Ludwig.
