The River, 1980

Springsteen first recorded the hypnotic "Drive All Night" for Darkness on the Edge of Town, but it had little chance of making that album: A lengthy, soul-based love song, it didn't mesh with Darkness' concise tracks. He inserted bits of "Drive All Night" into live versions of "Backstreets" and found room for it on The River. Until 1999's "Land of Hope and Dreams," it seemed like it would be the last of his sprawling epics.
