Playing what was originally scheduled to be their final show of the tour, Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band drop one of the best of 1978 at The Fox. No full recording of Atlanta 10/1/78, audience or otherwise, has ever been available. Newly mixed from Plangent Processed, multitrack masters, 10/1/78 is a previously unheard Darkness tour masterwork, from the show-opening cover of the Rolling Stones’ “The Last Time” through the encore closer “Quarter To Three.” In between, we’re treated to “Heartbreak Hotel,” “It’s My Life,” “Meeting Across The River,” “For You,” “Because The Night,” “Point Blank,” “Kitty’s Back” and “Incident On 57th Street” across this go-out-with-a-bang, 24-song set.

There are few periods in the post-Reunion era as busy as 2005-2009, a five-year stretch that saw the release of four studio albums each with accompanying tours, surely none more fun for Bruce Springsteen himself than 2006’s sojourn in support of The Seeger Sessions.

As measured by cultural impact and mass popularity, Bruce Springsteen’s 1984-85 World Tour was the apex. Considering its stunning scale, playing multi-night stadium stands, it’s easy to forget that 1984 was a rebirth of sorts, the start of a new era as much as a continuation of what came before it. On the biggest tour of his career, Springsteen was rebuilding the engine while the plane was flying.

The final weeks of the Working On A Dream tour saw Springsteen return to NYC for special full-album shows including the first complete performance of The River. The result was a remarkable, in-the-moment experience for band and audience, as rarely played songs like “Crush On You,” “Stolen Car,” “Wreck On The Highway” “Fade Away,” “I Wanna Marry You” and “The Price You Pay” roared back to life, fulfilling fan desires and planting the seeds for 2016’s River revisited tour.

The last night of a three-show Windy City stand captures Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band playing with the kind of purpose and passion that made the Reunion tour so memorable. Chicago ’99 balances tour staples like “Murder Incorporated,” “Youngstown” and “If I Should Fall Behind” with rarer outings for “Adam Raised A Cain,” “Independence Day” and “She’s the One,” plus true surprises “Take ‘Em As They Come,” “Janey, Don’t You Lose Heart” and a resplendent “New York City Serenade.”

Compared to the gargantuan Live/1975-85, 2001′s Live in New York City seems like the very definition of restraint, but consider this — not only does it span two discs, it leaves out a considerable portion of the set list from the show and thereby the set list of Springsteen’s celebrated 2000 reunion with the E Street Band. Some critics complained that this record was little more than a tie-in to the HBO special of the same name, but even if that’s true, the record would have merit since it illustrates exactly why this group should never have parted ways. In a sense, even if this is the third live album in Springsteen’s catalog, it’s the first that attempts to replicate the feeling of an evening out with the E Street Band (the Live/1975-85 box tried too hard to be an ultimate experience; MTV Plugged captured a transitional phase). Though most reunions feel a little forced, this feels natural, yet never nostalgic, since the track listing never relies on the predictable. There are no hits in the conventional sense — outside of “Born in the U.S.A.” tucked away on the second disc and an initially uncredited “Born to Run” — but there are many fan favorites interspersed with a few obscurities and new songs, most notoriously the protest song “American Skin (41 Shots).” This works in Springsteen’s favor, since there’s no pandering — only the joy of making music with the band that understands him best. This doesn’t really result in something essential, even if the new songs are quite good, but if you’ve ever been a fan, it’s hard not to warm to Live in New York City.

Bruce Springsteen – The Ties That Bind: The River Collection (2015) [4xCD + 2xBlu-ray]

‘The Ties That Bind: The River Collection’ is a comprehensive look at Bruce Springsteen’s ‘The River’ era, one of the most pivotal periods of time in his career. 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 as released in 1980; 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,’ was originally released on October 17, 1980 as a double album and reached #1 on the U.S. Billboard 200 chart. ‘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 fourth CD on the box set is ‘The River: Outtakes,’ which spans the entire ‘The River’ sessions in 1979 and 1980. 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,” on one DVD, is a brand new 60-minute documentary 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. Liner notes include a new essay from journalist Mikal Gilmore, the original Rolling Stone album review from 1980, and Springsteen’s updated comments about the album from the 1998 “Songs” book.

The writing is some of the best of his career and both veteran fans and those who are new to Bruce will find much to love on ‘Wrecking Ball.'”

At the end of the Magic sessions, Springsteen found himself still writing songs. Encouraged by producer Brendan O’Brien, he recorded during breaks on tour, exploring a classic pop sound for an album release coinciding with Super Bowl XLIII and the inauguration of President Barack Obama. Working on a Dream was Springsteen’s 16th studio album released under Columbia Records in 2009. The album reached number 1 on the Billboard 200, U.S. Rock albums and U.S. Digital Albums.

It’s hard to imagine Bruce Springsteen describing a project of his as a concept album—too much prog baggage, too much expectation of some big, grand, overarching story. But nothing he’s done across five decades as one of rock’s most accomplished storytellers has had the singular, specific focus and locus, lyrically and musically, as this long-gestating solo effort—a lush meditation on the landscape of the western United States and the people who are drawn there, or got stuck there.
