Word is the Boss will be appearing on SNL December 19th. Don't know if he's the guest host or just the musical guest.

Also heard some rumblings he's been in the studio so maybe this ties in with that? One can hope! grin

OCTOBER 15, 2015
‘The Ties That Bind: The River Collection’ 4CD/3DVD Box Set Out December 4th

Columbia Records will release Bruce Springsteen’s ‘The Ties That Bind: The River Collection’ on December 4th. A comprehensive look at ‘The River’ era, the set contains 52 tracks on 4 CDs with a wealth of unreleased material, and 4 hours of never-before-seen video on 3 DVDs. 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 two-DVD 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.”

‘The River: Single Album’ is the 10-track album that Springsteen recorded in 1979 as a follow up to 1978’s ‘Darkness On The Edge Of Town’ but never released. “The songs lacked the kind of unity and conceptual intensity I liked my music to have. So we went back in the studio,” he wrote in the lyrics/photo book “Songs.” The early sessions marked the beginning of a prolific 18-month long journey of writing and recording. Seven of the 10 titles on ‘The River: Single Album’ eventually appeared on ‘The River,’ some with alternate lyrics and arrangements, with outtakes like “Cindy” and a rockabilly version of “You Can Look (But You Better Not Touch)” never released. Now for the first time ‘The River: Single Album’ will be officially available.

The fourth CD on the box set is ‘The River: Outtakes,’ which spans the entire ‘The River’ sessions in 1979 and 1980 and illustrate the depth and variety of Springsteen’s work during this period. Eleven songs are rarities that have never been released before, and for the most part are completely unheard and unknown even to fans, who have long considered Springsteen’s outtakes to be treasured secrets.

“The Ties That Bind” is a brand new 60-minute documentary produced and directed by Grammy and Emmy-winning filmmaker Thom Zimny that features an intimate interview with Springsteen as he reflects on the tumultuous, extended period writing and recording ‘The River.’ The film transitions between Springsteen telling the stories behind the music — and illustrating them with solo acoustic guitar performances — interspersed with period concert footage and rare photos of Bruce and the band in and out of the studio.

The final video component is “Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band: The River Tour, Tempe 1980,” a new film produced from footage professionally filmed in 1980 using four cameras and recorded in multitrack audio. The film features 24 songs — 2 hours, 40 minutes — on 2 DVDs from Springsteen’s November 5, 1980 concert at Arizona State University in Tempe, AZ. Widely regarded as one of Springsteen’s finest performances, this intense show features early live versions of over half of ‘The River’ songs. Also included is 20 minutes of footage from the late September, 1980 River Tour rehearsals held in Lititz, PA, showing Springsteen and The E Street Band working through live arrangements of what was then unreleased material from the upcoming album.

‘The Ties That Bind: The River Collection’ is packaged in a 10” x 12” box with a hardcover 148-page coffee table book containing 200 studio and live photographs — most of which have never been seen before — plus pages from Springsteen’s notebooks, single covers, images and outtakes from the original album package, and other memorabilia documenting the album.

‘The Ties That Bind: The River Collection’ is available for pre-order at Amazon (4CD/3DVDs or 4CD/2Blu-ray) and iTunes.

I know what I'm asking Santa for Christmas! grin

Nice find there Henry. I'm looking forward to that 4th cd of the "Outtakes" and the Pro shot Tempe show. I saw a couple of shows in Philly not long after that one including Dec. 8th 1980 and they were amazing. It'll be great to have a show from that era to watch.

Maybe his SNL appearance will have something to do with this, and possibly play an outtake or two? I'd love to see it!

$129.98 US Henry. shocked

I have to admit I was surprised at that. I think Bruce inc certainly knows their main audience is from our generation who likes seeing holding, and playing albums and all the other stuff in this box.

I think the younger generation couldn't give a sh*t about that stuff, and just wants to be able to download the tunes they want to their ITunes or whatever device. grin

Haha. That house isn't very far from where I live. Maybe 35-40 minutes away. I've seen that place and it's actually pretty small, more like a cottage.

Interesting tidbit is it's owned by REALLY dedicated Bruce fans. Four guys bought it several years back, and the word was they were trying to keep it as a monument/museum type of thing. I guess that hasn't worked out too well for them but kudos for giving it a shot.

As for the thread title, I don't know what the Sheeeeeeeila reference is but you had to know by my history here it was about The Boss! wink grin

I did suspect you might live fairly near. It seems pretty realistically priced, to someone unfamiliar with house prices in that area.

"Bruce" and "Sheila" are stereotypical Australian names, always paired. See one, you think of the other, if you know about that. Andrew Y4G will explain! grin

You beat me to it my friend! cool. I came to post the exact same thing.

I'm targeting the MSG shows, and the Philly one too. Fingers crossed to do LA as well. I always wanted to see him in that venue and this might be my last chance.

I'm hoping to score tickets for Toronto & Buffalo.

LA...oh man, that would definitely be a nice gig to see.

Hmm...

Philly is a Friday night, with Newark, and one of the MSG's on a Sunday. Sound like a three day weekend in there somewhere? wink

I wouldn't be surprised at all if they hit Europe over the Summer. Maybe not as many dates as in the past but definitely some shows.

I haven't heard anything concrete yet but I'll post if I hear some news.
