The limited edition boxset covers Bruce Springsteen's second decade as a recording artist, with many of the albums included having achieved Top 5 positions internationally, reaching gold, platinum or multi-platinum status in major territories worldwide. Following on from the successful 2014 Boxset, covering the period 1973-84, Vol 2 features all five studio and live albums recorded for Columbia Records between 1987 and 1996 - all of which have long been out of print - as well as a 60pg book featuring rarely seen photos, memorabilia and press clippings from the period. Additionally, the boxset also features two EPs - Blood Brothers (available on vinyl for the first time) and Chimes of Freedom - both of which are exclusive to the box. Furthermore, each boxset features a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
The audio on The Album Collection Vol. 2 is sourced from the highest-quality transfers of each original analogue album master. Acclaimed engineer Bob Ludwig and Springsteen's long-time engineer Toby Scott utilized the Plangent Process, noted for its ability to correct pitch errors and distortions in the magnetic tape, ensuring the best possible quality versions of these albums. Additionally, two of the albums in the set have been pressed on double vinyl for the first time to further maximize audio fidelity.
