Independence Boss Playlist 2007
I couldn't really even stand Bruce Springsteen as a kid in the seventies (I didn't have the patience for anything more subtle than KISS and AC/DC), but have been converted rather recently by a handful of vintage live shows.
Really unparalleled for transporting you to your own summer night below the sea wall, slowly brushing sand off of her sunburned midriff with the back of your hand, the sound of seagulls fighting over a french fry for a soundtrack. Good stuff.
Here's an emblematic triumvirate of songs from the Hammersmith Odeon '75 record to set the mood today, from Old Orchard Beach right down to the Redneck Riviera.
