Real Meeting Across the River shit... (4.15)

Chuck: Information like this is never free. There's bribes and payoffs under it.

Tonelle Burton: Real Meeting Across the River shit. …What, only white men can listen to The Boss?

Chuck: Oh, not at all. No. In fact, like the main character in that deep cut, Axe is not gonna win here. Something has to tie back to him.

Meeting Across the River is the seventh track on Bruce Springsteen's breakthrough 1975 album, Born to Run; it also appeared as the B-side of Born to Run, the lead single from that album. The song is often paired with Jungleland in concert, though without the Randy Brecker trumpet part from the record and with regular bass guitarist Garry Tallent.
