Five reunion era classics are wax bound.
Bruce Springsteen will release “The Rising,” “Devils & Dust,” “Live In New York City,” “Live In Dublin,” and “18 Tracks” on the vinyl on Feb. 21 via Columbia Records/Legacy Recordings.
It will be the first time on vinyl since their initial releases, except for “Live in Dublin,” recorded with the Sessions Band in 2006, which has never been available on vinyl.
The releases capture a creative arc for Springsteen, which coincided with the reunion of the E Street Band in 1999, and continues to the present day.
Per the press release:
“The Rising” (2002) will be reissued on 2 LPs vinyl for the first time in over 15 years. The album offered messages of healing and redemption in the wake of the devastating attacks on 9/11, and saw The E Street Band re-unite in the studio for the first time in nearly a decade.

“Devils & Dust” (2005) comes to vinyl for the first time since its original release on the format. The 2LP set remains one of Springsteen's starkest studio albums, recalling “The Ghost of Tom Joad” a decade earlier.
“Live In New York City” (2001) arrives on 3 LPs for the first time since its original pressing. The set chronicles Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band's much-anticipated reunion tour, recorded over two nights at Madison Square Garden in the summer of 2000.

“Live In Dublin” (2007) will be released on vinyl for the first time ever, a 2 LPs snapshot of Bruce Springsteen's work with The Sessions Band, including classic folk songs popularized by Pete Seeger and radically rearranged versions of Bruce Springsteen favorites.
“18 Tracks” (1999) is coming to vinyl for the first time in over 20 years. The 2 LPs set features rarities like the original “Born In The U.S.A.” demo and exclusive songs “Trouble River,” a 1999 re-recording of “The Promise” and Springsteen's original version of “The Fever,” made famous by Southside Johnny and The Asbury Jukes.
