Also out Nov. 16 is The Promise, a 2 CD or 4 lp configuration that includes 21 songs recorded during the Darkness sessions, tunes Bruce describes as 'substantial', and ones he possibly should have released as a separate album before the 1978 release of DarknessSpringsteen manager and confidant Jon Landau promises the previously unreleased material adds up to '...simply a great listening experience.'  The first DVD in the complete collection is The Promise: The Making Of Darkness on the Edge of Town, the documentary by Thom Zimny that premiers at the Toronto Film Festival September 14 and comes to HBO October 7 (story).  The second DVD features a 2009 HD recording of the E Street Band doing the original album in its entirety in 2009 at an empty Paramount Theater in Asbury Park, along with a dozen concert clips filmed  at shows between 1976 and 1978.  A complete 26 song set filmed at the Summit in Houston in December of '78 is documented on the third DVD.
