Overview

The Ties That Bind: The River Collection was released on November 27, 2015. The set contains 52 tracks on four CDs along with four hours of video on three DVDs or two Blu-ray discs. The first two CDs feature the remastered version of The River and the third CD contains the previously unreleased The River: Single Album, also known as The Ties That Bind, which has circulated as a bootleg for many years. The fourth CD, The River: Outtakes, are from The River sessions 1979 - 1980 and contains eleven previously-unreleased outtakes, the other half mostly on Tracks. The fifth disc (DVD or Blu-ray) contains a 60-minute documentary, The Ties That Bind, which was produced and directed by filmmaker Thom Zimny and features an interview with Springsteen as he reflects on writing and recording The River. The film transitions between Springsteen telling the stories behind the music, illustrating them with solo acoustic guitar performances, with period concert footage and photos. The remaining discs feature Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band from November 5, 1980 at Arizona State University, Tempe, Arizona, a new concert film produced from footage professionally filmed with four cameras and recorded in multitrack audio. The film features 23 of 33 songs performed, on 2 DVDs or one Blu-ray. Also included is 20 minutes of footage from the late September 1980 River Tour rehearsals held in Lititz, Pennsylvania. The boxed set also includes a 148-page book with Springsteen's secret notes and song lyrics.
