The Boss sings soul standards.  So bad.

Nobody's favourite album, but listening to this, geez, you realise how good it could have been. The outtakes are amazing, with real bass and real drums. I never realised just how much the production had ruined it.

That's a great set!  I've never owned the LPs, but I did buy it on CD years ago.  :)

It doesn't get as much love, but I'm also very fond of the second WTCBU set:



might even try and give that another play tonight

I knew that there was a second one out, but haven't heard it.  I see that they did a third volume too (30 years later); where does the time go?!

So, I was more or less a fan of Born to Run, back when it was new. For whatever reasons, I didn't care for the follow-up album. Springsteen would. for all intents and purposes lose me, with "Hungry Heart" and "Santa Claus Is Coming to Town."
Later, at college, a classmate wrote a review of then-newly-released Nebraska, and I upbraided him for discussing the lyrics exclusively, and the music not at all.

Somehow, this year, I am curious to listen at last to the album, myself:

I'm glad that random thought crossed my mind. I like this album a lot.

^By far my most played and most admired Springsteen release.

There was an excellent episode of the My Favorite Album podcast on it, if you're interested:

There's also a lot of really interesting unused songs from those session/demos on Youtube

Boy, I haven't played that one in ages myself.  Glad that you enjoyed revisiting it Karl.

A favorite of mine (particularly on long drives):  Greetings from Asbury Park, N.J.....so many great songs on there.  Love the E-Street Band too!

The second dud in a row from an old pro.  This is better than Springsteen's horrid attempt at blue-eyed soul.
