Bruce Springsteen - Badlands: a Tribute to Bruce Springsteen's Nebraska (2000) Retail CD
There was a time when nobody besides Manfred Mann really bothered to cover Bruce Springsteen songs. All that changed once Born To Run turned the singer-songwriter into an American pop icon. Still, it was in the bleak character studies of 1982's Nebraska that he reaffirmed himself as a literate everyman steeped in the tradition of John Steinbeck, Flannery O'Connor, Woody Guthrie and Bob Dylan. And that's the side of Springsteen that clearly appeals to Johnny Cash, Los Lobos, Hank Williams III and the dozen other artists who participate in this remake of Nebraska. Chrissie Hynde, Ani DiFranco andmore… Deana Carter all deliver haunting performances, but as far as the menfolk go, the album's most striking covers are "bonus" tracks that were recorded for but not released on Nebraska: "I'm On Fire" sounds even creepier with Cash's craggy vocal; the Mavericks' Raul Malo brings out the pop sheen of "Downbound Train"; and "Wages of Sin", in the hands of Damien Jurado and Rose Thomas, shows just how depressing Springsteen can be. All of this makes this a fine companion to the original recording. --Bill Forman
