To help close down Giants Stadium last moth, Bruce Springsteen, along with his E Street Band, played a series of shows featuring full-length albums performed in their entirety, dedicating nights to Born to Run, Darkness on the Edge of Town and Born in the U.S.A.. Fans in attendance at this weekend’s Madison Square Garden shows will be treated to two more such shows, but this time the focus is on lesser known albums: Springsteen’s 1973 sophomore LP, The Wild, the Innocent & the E Street Shuffle, and the 1980 double-album The River, which boasts as good a Side One as any record maybe ever. Seriously, look:

“The Ties That Bind”

“Sherry Darling”

“Jackson Cage”

“Two Hearts”

“Independence Day”
