‘The record company, Rosie, just gave me a big advance!’

As Bruce Springsteen collects his $550 million payday from the sale of his music, I’m looking back on the making of those early recordings – including show-stoppers like “Rosalita” and “Born to Run” – that were captured in an unassuming studio off the main drag in suburban Rockland County.

Here’s Part 1 of a lookback on Springsteen’s early days; next week’s installment features a Q&A with Brooks Arthur, the man behind the music at 914 Sound Studios.
