‘I love the emotional nature of Letter To You. And I love the sound of the E Street Band playing completely live in the studio, in a way we’ve never done before, and with no overdubs,’ said Bruce’s official statement.

‘We made the album in only five days, and it turned out to be one of the greatest recording experiences I’ve ever had,’ dished the Boss.
