An absolutely epic journey down The River – and it's one well worth taking – with more than 50 tracks on 4 CDs plus 3 Blu
Rays! The original double album is prime classic Springsteen, circa 1980 – a few years removed at this point from the massive breakthrough that was Born To Run, and seemingly starting to let go of the darker tone of Darkness On The Edge Of Town, though still with some shadows of it. Definitely a creative high point, and a record we're always happy to revisit. Includes "The Ties That Bind", "Hungry Heart", "Out In The Street", "Fade Away", "Ramrod", "Rive All Night", "Wreck On The Highway", "Independence Day" and more. The box set also includes the first official release of The River: Single Album, recorded in '79 and intended as the follow up to Darkness At The Edge Of Town before Springsteen scrapped the idea and went back in the studio and ultimately released the fuller, farther reaching double album. It includes 7 songs from the eventual double, some with alternate lyrics and arrangements – and there's also a full CD of outtakes. The 3 Blu
Rays include the great feature length documentary, a complete concert from The River tour in 1980, filmed in Tempe, AZ, plus disc with never before seen rehearsal footage! Comes with heavy duty coffee table book, too!
