Well, here we are. It is the 40th anniversary of Born In The USA next month and to commemorate the album that turned Bruce Springsteen into a global superstar, he is releasing...the exact same record, but on red vinyl. With liner notes. And a fancy picture.

When I wrote about the recent-released Best Of compilation, I quoted the statistic that 50% of the people who buy vinyl don't own turntables. Those people are buying it as an act of participatory fandom, and because it's a more attractive form factor than a CD (and also, no one buys CDs any more). This release is for those people, and also for the fans who weren't old enough when BITUSA came out and want a copy of Springsteen's most indelible public image.
