New Springsteen box set about ‘The River’ on horizon

What’s inside “The Ties That Bind: The River Collection.” (Columba Records)

It’s never to early to start dropping hints to friends, family members, coworkers and even casual acquaintances about Christmas gift ideas. This is especially true if you happen to be a fan of Bruce Springsteen. The Boss has a landmark delivery coming Dec. 4: “The Ties That Bind: The River Collection.” The much-anticipated mega-box set includes 4 CDs of music, 3 DVS of video and a 148-page coffee table book chronicling the creation of “The River”, Springsteen’s fifth album released 35 years ago in October of 1980. “The River,” which included Springsteen’s first top 10 single, “Hungry Hearts”, went on to be certified quintuple platinum. It was a followup to “Darkness At The Edge of Town,” and was originally created as a single disc, but Springsteen took it back and doubled it with more tracks. This latest package will fit nicely on your shelf with other box sets by Springsteen ‘Born To Run” and “Darkness On The Edge of Town.” This major box set is available for pre-order at Amazon and iTunes for $129.98. “The Ties That Bind: The River Collection” track list includes:
