On March 31, 1992, a mere six months after Guns N' Roses released two albums on the same day, Bruce Springsteen released two albums on the same day. They were called Human Touch and Lucky Town and are considered by most Springsteen fans to be low points in the Boss' career. In keeping with the twins theme Rock and/or Roll is releasing two episodes of Gettin' Bossy on the same day! On this episode, entitled Lucky Touch, BJ and his Gettin' Bossy co-host Brian Sword from The Double Stop take a look at the ten song album Bruce wrote and recorded in three weeks time. He was supposed to be writing one more song for Human Touch but instead wrote a second album's worth of material to be released on the same day and called Lucky Town. Then BJ and Brian have each taken the 24 songs that made up the Human Touch and Lucky Town albums and from that group of songs chosen and sequenced one album's worth of material in the spirit of "what could have been." On this episode Brian Sword describes the album he constructed from the available material, an imaginary album called Lucky Touch.
