The Boss at Wembley

Springsteen is still on tour with the Seeger Sessions band, playing some pretty interesting sets. Of special interest to me are the reworkings of his own tunes with this large ensemble. On Nov 12 Bruce opened with Blinded by the Light, followed by Does This Bus Stop at 82nd Street? both from his 1973 debut album Greetings from Asbury Park. He also played The River in this set, from the self titled 1980 album, and Johnny 99, from Nebraska. The previous night, Growin' Up, also from 1973. Check out these versions. Blinded almost sounds like klezmer music, and The River is downright gorgeous.
