Not long ago there was a huge upset with Bruce Springsteen fans because the decision was made for Walmart to exclusively offer one of his "best hit" CDs.
Well, it looks like Springsteen is regretting that decision
In a fine profile written by Jon Pareles on Bruce Springsteen, the Boss said the decision to do a deal with Wal-Mart for an exclusive greatest hits package was made too hastily. “We were in the middle of doing a lot of things, it kind of came down and, really, we didn’t vet it the way we usually do,” he said. “We just dropped the ball on it. ... Given its labor history, it was something that if we’d thought about it a little longer, we’d have done something different.”
He added, “It was a mistake. Our batting average is usually very good, but we missed that one. Fans will call you on that stuff, as it should be.”
It's great to see that he's paying attention to what his fan base says and recognizing that he shouldn't support the terrible business practices -- labor and other wise -- that Walmart uses.
