Really looking forward to it, even though Springsteen's earliest incarnation as a folkie was really a stopgap between the Child/Steel Mill band years and the founding of the E Street Band. But "Nebraska" cemented his acoustic cred, IMHO; and "The Ghost of Tom Joad" reinforced it. Last summer, enroute home after doing a UU service I worked up based on his music, I took my singing partner Susan to see him for the first time on the solo acoustic "Devils & Dust" tour. The arena was only half full and the sound mix was loud, echoey and dreadful, but he was terrific. I'd seen him many times with the E Streeters and once with his studio band on the "Lucky Town/Human Touch" tour; this was not necessarily better, but different and still satisfying.
Loved his "Do-Re-Mi" on the Woody tribute album, BTW. And though it's uneven, I like the Zevon tribute "Enjoy Every Sandwich" (especially Bruce's version of "My Ride's Here."). BTW, anyone catch the "Nebraska" tribute album? Chrissie Hynde's version of the title tune sends chills up and down my spine. (Dar Williams' cover of "Highway Patrolman" was okay, but I liked the original and Johnny Cash's version better).
