Golden Globe #2 for the Boss

AP photoBruce Springsteen picked up his second Best Original Song Golden GlobeĀ  last night for his theme for the film “The Wrestler.” He won the same award for 1994′s “Streets Of Philadelphia.” While he certainly deserves kudos I mention his victory over Peter Gabriel, Clint Eastwood & Miley Cyrus merely as an excuse to revisit of my favorite records of 2006, We Shall Overcome: The Seegaer Sessions. The Seeger Sessions is a rollicking, heartfelt tribute to a giant of contemporary American folk music. While the sound is big enough to verge on bombastic there’s a rowdy sincerity that’s impossible to resist. Instead of literal interpretations of Seeger’s spare sound Bruce infuses these tunes with a careening energy as diverse as a 60′s hootenanny mixed with Dylan’s work with The Band.

Here is an incredible sounding recording from the Seeger Sessions tour when it stopped in the UK.

Quick note about the tunes

The mp3s on this blog are to give folks a little taste. Imagine they're those little pouches on the bag your Sunday paper comes in. You know, the one's with a packet containing just enough toothpaste to brush your teeth once or twice. They are left up for a limited time. If you find something you like support the artists by dragging your friends to their shows and/or buying their CDs/records/schwag. If you are the artist (or their label/representative) and don't want an mp3 on here, please email me (mike@nowhearthismusic.com) and I'll remove it posthaste.
