If you would have asked me a few years ago if I listened to folk music, my response would have been "no." These past few months, I've had the pleasure of finding true gems in this genre.
Bruce Springsteen's latest CD WE SHALL OVERCOME: THE SEEGER SESSIONS is a CD that even your mama can listen to and enjoy.
Springsteen's rendition of songs such as "Old Dan Tucker," "Jesse James," "John Henry" and "We Shall Overcome" did this songwriters lyrics justice.I was surprised that he even sang a gospel song "O Mary Don't You Weep."
It feels like Springsteen has taken us back to our roots with this CD. WE SHALL OVERCOME: THE SEEGER SESSIONS is in stores now. If Springsteen comes to your town on tour, get your tickets. If he didn't perform any other songs but these, it would be a good concert.
On a scale of 1 to 4, Bruce Springsteen's latest CD gets a 4.
