Columbia Records/Legacy Recordings announced on March 29 the release of Bruce Springsteen: The Album Collection Vol. 2, 1987-1996, a limited-edition, numbered vinyl boxed set comprised of material he recorded and released for Columbia during that period. The collection arrives on May 18. The long out-of-print LPs are available remastered for the first time on vinyl.

From the announcement: In addition to Springsteen‘s four studio albums from the era, the boxed set includes a special 12” of 1988’s live EP Chimes of Freedom, Springsteen’s 1993 2-LP MTV Plugged special, and the first-ever vinyl release of the 1996 Blood Brothers EP for a total of 10 discs. All of this material comes in recreations of the original packaging, accompanied by a 60-page book featuring rarely seen photos, memorabilia and original press clippings from the period.

For The Album Collection Vol. 2, remastered albums from acclaimed engineer Bob Ludwig and Springsteen’s longtime engineer Toby Scott have been pressed on vinyl for the first time. The albums were transferred from the original analog masters using the Plangent Process playback system. 1987’s Tunnel of Love and 1992’s Human Touch have also been expanded across two LPs to maximize audio quality.

All four of Bruce Springsteen’s studio albums from this period were certified gold, platinum or multiplatinum by the RIAA, with three reaching the top five of the Billboard Album Chart. The Vol. 2 collection follows the 2014 release of Bruce Springsteen: The Album Collection Vol. 1, 1973-1984, which included newly remastered editions of Springsteen’s first seven studio albums.

Tunnel of Love (1987)* (2 LP)
