Oops, the title song actually is in that tracklist for The Ties That Bind. Substitute Wreck on the Highway, a great closer.

I stand by the rest though!

Drive All Night

My dislike for those songs has nothing to do with any perceived liking for "pop/rock" from Bruce. That song is too long and repetitive.

I guess those who prefer the more straightforward pop/rock won't be as big of a fan of the darker material (and the reason Bruce didn't put The Ties That Bind out that way is because he felt it was too light), but I love the way the album points toward Nebraska and manages to contain the best of both worlds, musically and thematically. It's scattershot, perhaps, but certainly more than one good's albums worth of songs.
I think if he had released this album, toured in late 1979/early 1980, then went back into the studio and did the other songs (like the ones you mention above) and released that album in 1981, then a tour, then Nebraska as it is in 1982, you'd still have a natural progression to Nebraska and the darker material. Going from the proposed The Ties That Bind album, to another album in 1981 with the likes of Independence Day, Point Blank, and Fade Away, and then finally to Nebraska in late 1982, would be one hell of an album cycle, in my mind.

I still love The River as it is, but I can imagine how incredible two separate albums with a more cohesive focus on their own, moving towards Nebraska, would've been.

I need to see if I can find a download/torrent of the audio from that 1975 London concert DVD that came with the Born to Run reissue.

Holy crap, it's amazing. (Although Kitty's Back goes on about 20 minutes too long.)

Didn't the set come with a cd of that show? I have one and I'm sure it came with the box set.

Mine doesn't have it, unless it's a hidden treat on one of the other discs.

The box set I have it has a CD of the album, a booklet, the live DVD and a "making of" DVD.

I think I just found a torrent, though. Whoot!

Headache: Gosh, thanks. That does look a lot better.

Mine was a separate cd, along with the other stuff you have.

No, the box set came with the DVD of the show only (along with Born To Run and the Making Of thing). They then released the show as a 2CD set by itself.

Oh yeah, that's what I need - yet another item on my Amazon wish list.

Thanks for the tip!

(...goes to stop torrent downloading...)
