It's no secret that I'm a Springsteen fanatic. While I love his music (and his live performances), this is one of my favorite covers he's done. Some context, though. Johnny Cash was a huge Springsteen fan (his daughter, as well). Johnny covered several Bruce songs. It was a mutual admiration society. Johnny was a big influence on Bruce. To me, this is how powerful Bruce can be... solo (just his guitar). While I like me some Johnny Cash, Bruce's cover is infinitely better than the original.
Just some musings from an old guy...
