Horse - the Springsteen/Morello version is simply incredible. That's exactly what I meant earlier when I thought Springsteen doesn't bring it to the crescendo it deserves. Morello does exactly that - quite simply breathtaking. :shock: :shock:

You can see Springsteen just in awe of him, he's really enjoying himself. Thanks for posting - sensational. 8)

Hi Sheik,

Sorry I have took so long to answer your query but I was up the road for my nephew's wedding,and very enjoyable it was too.

Highway Patrolman and Johnny 99 are both on the Johnny Cash(who else) album, Johnny 99.

Dare I say the Man in Black does them better than the guy who wrote them? Or is that a biased opinion on my part ?

Thanks for that Bill - I'll have a listen and pass on my opinion. To be honest it wouldn't be the first time I've heard JC doing a better version than the original :wink:

Where was the wedding?

A Horse called Juan Face wrote:If anyone really cares here are the two versions, plus the live one with both


Sorry but I didn't like the first one :oops:
I have to say that it doesn't add anything to Bruce's version.

The final one however was fantastic! That guy's guitar playing is awesome!

Got out this weekend the boxed CD set 'Tracks' as hadn't listened to it for ages and OMG this just blew me away again. Pure Boss brilliance and most of these are outtakes! How brilliant is he if these are the ones that didn't make the albums?????????????? It's all so raw and deep and just so beautiful. Disc 4 is perfection itself. My favourite at the moment out of everything he's ever done. So if anyone on this forum still doubts that he's the most important composer in the field of his generation, listen to these CDs.

AND Ags - I made a mistake. On Disc 1 there's a track called 'Linda, Let me be the one' so Pale Horse isn't the only one he wrote for here!!!!!!!!!!!!! :D He must have penned that after our night under the boardwalk in New Jersey that sultry evening :oops: :oops: :lol:

Govangirl - I'm actually just back from a short stint in New Jersey (working) all I can say is no wonder he wrote so much about jumping in his car and driving to the promised land, because NJ certainly wouldn't feature high on the list of many places I'd want to live. :shock:

In the interest of balance I did make it north to Connecticut, and parts of it were v. nice :D

But Connecticut is lovely - ALL of New England is lovely!!!!!!

We had 'tracks' out on Friday night after a bad day when the only comfort was good music and wine! Iain just mirrored your words about how truly brilliant that boxed set is! Definitely his favourite! Unfortunately our disc 4 has a big scratch on it :evil:!!

Extract from report in Spinner

Springsteen Evokes Ghosts of Cash in Nashville..............


Bruce Springsteen's first arena show in eight years in Music City on Thursday night drew such Nashville royalty as Kix Brooks of Brooks & Dunn, Amy Grant, Martina McBride, dobro player extraordinaire Jerry Douglas and Kim Carnes of 'Bette Davis Eyes' fame. But it was the ghosts whose true presence was felt.


Accompanied only by guitarist Nils Lofgren, Springsteen rendered a beautifully soulful short take on Johnny Cash's 'I Walk the Line,' introducing it by saying, "This man cut a few of my songs. His voice is deeply missed"

I would just love to hear this - I'm sure others would too. Is there any way this is possible or will it be on youtube?

Well, I tried to find it on Youtube but no luck. I did come across this though:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uzJjtDAJYHY

Not too sure about it but I liked the quote on the page from Bruce doing the Johnny Cash cover at the rock and roll Hall of Fame....

"Johnny, I wanna send out big thanks for the inspiration. You kind of took the social conscience of some folk music and the gravity and humor from country music and the rebellion out of the rock and roll and taught all us young guys that not only was it alright to tear up all those lines and boundaries but it was important. "

Wow! I love you Bruce!!!!

But going back to the clip, it was a celebration of the love between Johnny and June Cash. I know I'm going off thread here but I'm sure Bruce won't mind. Twice I've seen Truckstop Honeymoon from the States. The first was at Broadstairs Folk Week a few years ago (just Mike West) and then at Broadstairs 2 months ago, the both of them. I love them and love their music as got all their CDs. Anyway, they introduce this song about how they wouldn't want to be like Tammy and George - they're like Johnny and June. I LOVE this song! I've put it here but on Youtube the sound isn't that good, actually, not good at all. It's a great song and I often sing it loud in my car!!!!!!!!!!!.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cefn3Xm4G-o

If you ever get a chance to see them - do! It's a great show!

So sorry Bruce!

Bruce brings a new take to the long time classic Cash song"Give my love to Rose",though obviously my preference is with the original.

Wow! That was the quote I saw - brilliant to hear Brucie there! I've got a sneaking suspicion that Bill is turning into a fan :wink:

The Boss worked with some great people. How great if we had a clip of him and Cash.
