The 10 tracks on Nebraska were recorded in New Jersey on a 4-track cassette recorder as demos intended to be later rerecorded with the E-Street Band (a unicorn album for Springsteenheads dubbed Electric Nebraska). The Boss went with remastered demos in the end. #landmark

File this quietly under Father's Day for some major kudos [or just gift to self -ed.] You can listen to the whole thing @ BruceSpringsteen. Woops, guess not #sonyfail. It is tear-your-heart-out stuff, but you knew that right.

Copies are all over the place but LP above (get this on vinyl... extra points) happens to be from the etsy shop CoMod; go get lost in the rest of their vintage/industrial picks.

in college I drove from Denver to Chicago for a music festival. Listened to Nebraska all the way through Nebraska. Considering the record is only ~40 mins long, it's a testament to how great the writing is that I never got sick of it. Landmark indeed...

So good. Not even a Springsteen fan...but for this record. Atlantic City is, in my opinion, his best. Thank goodness someone had the sense to leave these alone and not junk it up with an 18 piece band and that saxophone stuff.
