The tracks on this CD take us into a time when music was a political weapon; a time when Seeger's friend Woody Guthrie proclaimed his guitar killed fascists. It was a time when talking and singing about life and its tough breaks was as natural and easy as breathing in and out in 4 / 4 time. Springsteen has brought a lyrical interpretation to those tales of the past which brings them fair and square into today. His message is of things we need to know about today and about things that have been important and unresolved for many years; war, hard work with no let up, the search for grace, the joy of a great tale and the pleasure of a G chord in front of a great band.
As I sit writing this I wonder which musical well Springsteen is drinking at today; as he quietly plans and develops his next artistic expression of life in music.Read more ›

|Why this item is a better choice for some than the original...||
I wish Sony would choke on their damn DualDisc. It won't play in my car and it's twice as likely to get damaged from having 2 sides on one disc. This new release is how the original should have been issued.
