Loose Ends
Meeting Across the River (with Richard Davis)
Born to Run
American Land

Me, I was most interested in the resurfacing of 'Meeting Across The River' in red above because it's the orphaned 'opera song' on Run that, to my ears at least, reaches back to an earlier, maybe more 'real-Jersey' songwriting period.

Don't think it will be played in Vancouver though. Turns out that Mr. Davis, who lives in nearby Madison, manned the stand-up base when the tune was first recorded, so Bruce brought him up to play as a special occasion.

Anyway, here it is.....
