Bruce Springsteen is premiering an unreleased live version of “Ramrod” as a preview of his forthcoming 7-disc box set, “The Ties That Bind: The River Collection.”
The 1980 performance at Arizona State University in Tempe, AZ is considered legendary in Springsteen circles as the New Jersey rocker and his band were on the road in support of their first double album, “The River.”
Due December 4, “The Ties That Bind: The River Collection” presents the live show alongside the 1980 album and its scrapped 1979 draft “The Ties That Bind”, plus 22 outtakes from the studio sessions and an hour-long documentary/interview with Springsteen.
“The River” delivered Springsteen his first No. 1 US album on the Billboard 200 on its way to sales of more than 5 million copies in the States alone.
Springsteen has also shared an unreleased outtake, “Meet Me In The City”, as a preview of the forthcoming package.
