Steve Van Zandt Announces New Box Set (Photos)

E Street Band icon Steve Van Zandt may have just celebrated a ‘Summer of Sorcery,’ but the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer is gearing up for a rock and roll Christmas with the release of a brand new boxed set.

The new set– RockNRoll Rebel – The Early Work–presents Van Zandt’s early work from 1973-1999. Set to arrive Dec. 6, the set includes the Artists United Against Apartheid’s landmark 1985 LP, Sun City – together with 51 bonus tracks spanning previously unreleased demos, B-sides, rehearsals, outtakes, classic concert performances, and a number of never-before-heard Steven Van Zandt compositions.

“It’s been a blast going through the archives and finding all these hidden gems,” says Van Zandt. “In addition to demos in various stages of completion, there are entire songs I’d completely forgotten about, and we found some really early things pre-Jukes like Southside Johnny and the Kid (the kid being me!). I’m excited to have my stuff back on vinyl for the first time in decades!”
