Next week marks the beginning of October, the true beginning of Autumn.
The year's flown by, hasn't it? Time to start thinking about what to buy loved ones for Christmas, we suppose...
Well, you could do worse than this lavish new Bruce Springsteen box set. Replenished and re-packaged, 'Bruce Springsteen: The Album Collection Vol. 1 1973-1984' features the astonishing rise of The Boss spread across seven albums.
'Greetings From Asbury Park, N.J.' (1973)
'The Wild, The Innocent and The E Street Shuffle' (1973)
'Born To Run' (1975)
'Darkness On The Edge Of Town' (1978)
'The River' (1980)
'Born In The U.S.A.' (1984)
To expand on this story, the box set includes a 60-page book featuring rarely-seen photos, memorabilia and original press clippings from Springsteen's first decade as a recording artist.
Due for release on November 17th, this looks to be perfect Yule tide fare...
