Land of Hope and Dreams - WikipediaAlmost 25 years to the day, Bruce Springsteen played his first ever Irish Concert, at Slane Castle, and so commenced the beginning of a beautiful friendship with the Irish people, that has continued to this day. Land of Hope And Dreams: Celebrating 25 Years of Bruce Springsteen in Ireland, chronicling his 10 tours and numerous gig appearances that have taken place here, both north and south of the border. In the opening Chapter [Born In The USA] the book takes us back to the planning for Slane and recalls the local community objection to the concert following the trouble at Bob Dylan the previous year. We forget that the Heysel Stadium Soccer disaster was only three days prior to his Slane appearance on June 1st, so security and safety were a priority. One fascinating fact of many in the book is that Springsteen wanted that first gig to be perfect so he performed a full dress rehearsal with the E Street Band the day before. No stone is left unturned here. Even the death of Jim Aiken hit Springsteen badly, and is truly worthy of a mention here.

The song's origins date to or early , when it was first written, although the mandolin riff first appeared on the song "Labor of Love" on Joe Gruscheky's album American Babylon that Springsteen played on.

Then I made a series of demos, kind of in search of that voice. And I was having a hard time finding it.
