Springsteen's voice was rough on his latest studio album, not sure about doing soul songs. Of course I like Bob Dylan's three Sinatra albums and he never could sing.

Rolling Stone founder Jann Wenner:
There’s a new Bruce [Springsteen] record coming out this fall, which is stunning. I’m listening to that.

I hope it follows in the same "throwback" footsteps as Letter to You.

Off the top of my head, I only know three of those songs. But sure I will check it out. Hope he only plays a couple on his tour. I want as much of his original stuff as possible.

For what he charges for a ticket he should play all of the first seven albums and then another two hours of deep tracks each night.

I liked it. His voice is stronger than it was on the last album. Pre-ordered the CD along with the upcoming Neil Young earlier.

Re: Bruce Springsteen - 2023 World Tour / “Only The Strong Survive” - soul covers album

Listened to the soul album twice and, well, if you like Bruce Springsteen and you like soul this should be you're kinda' album but I think the hardcores will probably protest in the same way they did when he did the Seeger Sessions. Personally, I love when an artist experiments outside of what they are more known for and Bruce certainly has done that here.

I think he pulls it off, alright. As a cover album in the twilight of his career, it's pretty good and I was glad he mostly stuck to lesser known cuts. The backing vocalist and band are fantastic and I'd pay to see this side of him live (you know, just not $500 a ticket ).

Is this just a filmed version of an already aired Stern radio show?
If so that's kinda chintzy for HBO.

Whatever it was, it was an absolutely fantastic interview. I was transfixed for over 2 hours. Who knew The Boss was so nuerotic?

He's been a pretty open book in recent years between his autobiography, his Broadway show and the podcast series he did with Barack Obama.
Still I will check it out soon.

My wife is a huge fan of The Killers and my obsession with Bruce is well documented here by now. For a Christmas present, I bought this original 16 X 20 photo print from The Killers store, which I will get framed.

Awesome pic, Decker!

Thanks for the tip on the Bruce interview with Stern. I could listen to Bruce talk for hours (and have with his audiobook which I totally recommend).
Speaking of him and Stern, there's a great clip out there back in the 80s when Clarence was on the Stern show and they called Bruce's answering machine.

What did you think of the Soul album?
