Today is the 48th anniversary of Bruce Springsteen’s debut album, Greetings from Asbury Park, N.J. Like The Doors from yesterday’s entry, I’ve never been a huge Springsteen fan, but I have grown an appreciation of the last 10 years or so. Five and a half years ago, I was part of the Vagabond Saints Society’s “Because the Night: A Night of Bruce Springsteen” (or something like that). I did four songs, “Because the Night,” “If I Should Fall Behind,” “I’m on Fire” and this one (second in the video). It was fun for me because it’s way out of my wheelhouse and I liked the challenge. I hope you enjoy!
Until tomorrow, same blog channel…
“Crazy Janey and her mission man were back in the alley tradin’ hands. ‘Long came Wild Billy with his friend G-man all duded up for Saturday night. Well Billy slammed on his coaster brakes and said anybody wanna go on up to Greasy Lake? It’s about a mile down on the dark side of route eighty-eight. I got a bottle of rose so let’s try it. We’ll pick up Hazy Davy and Killer Joe and I’ll take you all out to where the gypsy angels go. They’re built like light.” – “Spirit in the Night” (Springsteen)
