Thread Name: Contemporary song in folk music
Subject: RE: Contemporary song in folk music is taking orders for We Shall Overcome: The Seeger Sessions" by Bruce Springsteen. I love Seeger and I love Springsteen. Speaking about this dual disc recording, Springsteen said "So much of my writing, particularly when I write acoustically, comes straight out of the folk tradition. Making this album was creatively liberating because I have a love of all those different roots sounds... they can conjure up a world with just a few notes and a few words." It sounds good to me. Any comments?
