The Ties That Bind: The River Collection [Box Set] [CD/ DVD]
Four CD + three DVD edition. 2015 archive release from the rock icon. The Ties That Bind: The River Collection is a comprehensive look at The River era and contains 52 tracks on four CDs with a wealth of unreleased material, and four hours of never-before-seen video. It is comprised of the original The River double album; the first official release of The River: Single Album; a CD of 1979/80 studio outtakes; a film of never-released, newly edited multi-camera footage from Springsteen’s famed 1980 show in Tempe, AZ, long rumored but never-before-seen; rare tour rehearsal footage; a brand new documentary The Ties That Bind about The River; and a coffee table book of 200 rare or previously unseen photos and memorabilia with a new essay by Mikal Gilmore. The River, Springsteen’s fifth album, was released on October 17, 1980 as a double album and reached #1 on the U.S. Billboard 200 chart. In his notes, Gilmore calls The River Springsteen’s “pivotal album—[the] hinge between the ambitious commotions that had preceded it and the more succinct musical riots, and sometimes terrifying storytelling, that followed.”
