Note: "In The City Tonight" V1 thru V8 are takes from Telegraph Hill rehearsals on March 25, 1979. V8 is listed as 'Untitled Song #3' on disc two of 'The Definitive River Outtakes Collection Volume 2'. Working titles included "In The City Tonight", "In The City", and titled "Meet Me In The City Tonight" on Springsteen's handwritten lyric sheet. Author Clinton Heylin stated that the music of "In the City Tonight" was appropriated by "Night Fire", which is an interesting opinion. "In the City Tonight" V9 was recorded at the Power Station on June 14, 1979, under the title, "Do You Want Me To Say Alright", for reasons unknown. Backing tracks from the June 14 sessions were used in V10, "Meet Me In The City", officially released online on October 16, 2015, to accompany the announcement of The Ties That Bind: The River Collection, which was released on December 4, 2015. "Do You Want Me To Say Alright" was included in an archival concept list put together by a Sony engineer in 1993.
