I’ve never been a big Springsteen fan. I enjoyed The Rising for a while, and a few tracks from Devils and Dust. His stuff in the 80s and 90s didn’t do a whole lot for me.

But Josh Hurst and the others who recommended the new Springsteen album of songs by Pete Seeger were right: This is the most joyous, foot-stompin’ good time I’ve heard in years.

When I make my annual mix-disc of favorites from the year, it’s going to be loaded with tracks from this.
