One reason this album sounds a lot more toned down is due to Bruce’s experiences playing on the strip. It angered him playing in bars where people didn’t care what he had to say, only paying attention to how it sounded. Bruce wanted to draw attention to his lyrics. Doing this, brought on the comparison to being the New Dylan, which Bruce immediately tried to shake with the follow up album The Wild, The Innocent, & The E Street Shuffle.
Old Bruce makes a point of letting us know that he’s from one of the scuzziest, most useless and plain uninteresting sections of Jersey. He’s been influenced a lot by the Band, his arrangements tend to take on a Van Morrison tinge every now and then, and he sort of catarrh-mumbles his ditties in a disgruntled mushmouth sorta like Robbie Robertson on Quaaludes with Dylan barfing down the back of his neck. It’s a tuff combination, but it’s only the beginning. Because what makes Bruce totally unique and cosmically surfeiting is his words.

Jay's Record Shop" in Asbury Park, w he was living at the time. This record store was across the street from the legendary "UPSTAGE CLUB", w Bruce often played from 1969 until it closed in 1971. This in-store is well known to serious Springsteen fans,.
When Bruce Springsteen put this New Jersey beach resort on the map in the 70s, it was down on its luck. Now the beach town, a weekend escape for New Yorkers, is seeing a revival. Since his 1973 debut album, Greetings from Asbury Park, the Boss has romantically detailed the town’s decline – a place of stoned-out faces and hardscrabble lives, where greasers tramp the streets.
