The Collection, Vol. 2: Nebraska/Lucky Town/In Concert

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Thom Jurek
This second volume in the Bruce Springsteen Collection wherein Sony repackages three albums in one box is rather troubling given its selections. There is the sublime Nebraska, Springsteen's first solo album, and a recording of stripped-down haunting tracks. But also included are Lucky Town why it wasn't packaged with its simultaneously released partner Human Touch is a mystery, and the utterly forgettable Springsteen In Concert from the Human Touch/Lucky Town tour which admittedly does have a few good moments in performances of older material like "Thunder Road" and "Darkness on the Edge of Town".
