Finally some good news from the Boss front:
STATEMENT ABOUT "THE PROMISE: THE MAKING OF DARKNESS ON THE EDGE OF TOWN"
Bruce Springsteen, Jon Landau Management, and Columbia Records are working on completing a new package related to 'Darkness on the Edge of Town,' which will include the new Thom Zimny film "The Promise: The Making of Darkness On The Edge Of Town." Further details will be announced when they are finalized.
"The Promise: The Making of Darkness On The Edge Of Town" will premier September 14 at the Toronto International Film Festival.
UPDATE: HBO will air the Bruce Springsteen docu "The Promise: The Making of Darkness on the Edge of Town" in October.
From director Thom Zimny, who has worked with Springsteen on several projects, film captures the tumultuous time Springsteen had between "Born to Run" and "Darkness," his fourth album.
For much of that 1975-78 time period, Springsteen was entangled in a lawsuit with his former manager Mike Appel that prevented him from recording any songs. Doc will offer never-before-seen footage, including home rehearsals.
So it looks like the long overdue Darkness box set will be released in the coming months. My only wish is for a DVD of a full E Street Band show from 1978.
