Bbbbbut Bbbbbruce

I said on the mothership the other day that I admired Springsteen but am not a fan, as in I find him a tad tedious to listen to for long.

I was surprised to find that The Band had covered his Atlantic City, and I think they help me make my point. To be fair, Bruce’s is from the deliberately sparse Nebraska, which I like more than many others. But the Band’s take stays true to the song and album’s organic roots, so its not like it needed a lot of gimmicking up or anything.)
