Meet Me in the City is my least favorite song of the outtakes in the River sessions in Springsteen’s new Ties That Bind box set. The track strains inside a too-small audio space, and putting new audio over old backing doesn’t come off as naturally as it has previously. But the song sounds great live. Was stuck in my head all morning after the show last night.
And surprises! Paul McCartney surprises. Plus, you know, Tina and Amy.
