Re: The Unraveling

My honey got me the pre-order for Christmas (I found one that really gets me!) and it surprisingly arrived the day after the album was released. I held out listening to The Unraveling until I got it in my hot little hands. After reading some early reviews (some of them here) I was not expecting to l...

Nothing like a five hour drive on Friday for a hockey tourney to really dig into this record which I already love.

Need some help from the musos here. I heard a studio version of Bruce doing the Dylan song I Want You on the radio this morning.

I know there are several bootlegs of Springsteen doing this song live but does anyone know where the studio version comes from?

Thanks.
