With the much-anticipated release of a commemorative box set for Darkness on the Edge of Town slated for this October, Bruce Springsteen's classic record is getting renewed attention in the music world. Details on the project are scarce; however, in a recent interview with Rolling Stone, Steven Van Zandt mentioned that about 10 unreleased songs will be included in the box set. Fans are surely hungry for any and all material they can get from the 1978 recording sessions and subsequent tour.For our own preview of what's to come, we contacted Dick Wingate, who was intimately involved in the launch and marketing of the album and tour.
