Bruce Springsteen - The Seeger Sessions

Thought I was going to hate this, but its much better than it probably has a right to be. It has a real "having a laugh and few beers" vibe to it, which suits the style of music and the band are fabulous.

Let down a little by some poor song selection - Froggy Went A Courtin is a joke no matter who's singing it.

God, I wish he'd toured Australia with that show. I would have loved to hear something like Jacob's Ladder played live.

Re: Bruce Springsteen - The Seeger Sessions

Aw lady, they played that tune when I went! It was awesome. The whole band was just having fun... everyone except the drummer and pianist (that leaves 16 people) all got on the front of the stage in a big group, boogying, playing solos, smiling, dancing, swaying, singing, laughing. It was one of the highlights of the whole show. The band felt whole.

Re: Bruce Springsteen - The Seeger Sessions

Ah, so jealous. Sounds fantastic. That band sounded like they were having a party on the album - I can only imagine how fantastic they sounded live. And Springsteen always knows how to put on a show.

Re: Bruce Springsteen - The Seeger Sessions

Does anyone else find themselves coming back to this over and over again? I'd go as far as to say it's one of his best albumns. I think it's the rustic feeling that's got me hooked.

Has anyone watched the DVD that came with the American Land edition? That studio was great. The brass guys were at the foot of the stairs.

Haven't seen the DVD but I do still enjoy the album. I still have to skip Froggy though and I could have done without Old Dan Tucker. I wouldn't rank it as one of his best personally, but those two songs aside; it's a very good piece of work.

Re: Bruce Springsteen - The Seeger Sessions

Personally, I would have preferred a re-recorded version of We Shall Overcome with the band.

We Shall Overcome is a little underdone for me as well.
