Dead Man's Town - A Tribute To Born In The U.S.A.

Jump to “More items of this artist”

(Rock/Alt.Folk/Indie Pop/Roots Rock) 2014 Lightning Rod - 12 Acts haben jetzt das komplette Multiplatinum-Megaerfolgsalbum des Boss genau 30 Jahre nach seinem Erscheinen in der Originalreihenfolge der 12 Songs zum kleineren Teil leicht modifiziert nachgespielt, in der Mehrzahl aber völlig neu interpretiert und damit praktisch zu ihrem ganz eigenen Ding gemacht. Das muss man - Springsteen-Fan hin oder her - nicht alles abfeiern, aber eigentlich fallen in meiner persönlichen Wertung nur Ryan Culwell mit 'Bobby Jean', Holly Williams (ausgerechnet!) mit 'No Surrender' und Nicole Atkins mit 'Dancing In The Dark' etwas ab - Geschmackssache. Dagegen stehen gleich mehrere Gänsehautversionen: der reduzierte Titelsong gleich zur Eröffnung mit Jason Isbell & Amanda Shires (nur Guitar/Vocals, Fiddle), 'Cover Me' von Apache Relay als sehr coole Indie Pop/Soul/60s-Ballade, Blitzen Trapper mit einer angeschrägten Alt.Folk Rock-Fassung von 'Working On The Highway', 'Downbound Train' als düsterer Piano/Harmonica-Folk Blues von Joe Pug, dann Low, die auch nach gefühlten 150 Interpretationen von 'I'm On Fire' dem Song noch was Spannendes entlocken können, Trampled By Turtles, die mal wieder beweisen, dass man im Bluegrass-Modus absolut alles spielen kann, auch 'I'm Goin' Down', dann 'Glory Days' in der kaum wiederzuerkennenden, radikal-spartanischen Fassung von Justin Townes Earle und zum guten Ende eines sehr respektablen Projekts die North Mississippi Allstars mit 'My Hometown' im groovigen Memphis Sound mit reichlich Roots'n Soul, Slide Guitars, Bläsern und Chor.


2014 marks the 30th anniversary of Bruce Springsteens - Born In The U.S.A. - Although it would become his biggest selling album with seven top 10 singles on the Billboard Hot 100, Luther Dickinson of North Mississippi Allstars says - any of those songs could be played with acoustic guitar alone and still be great. Taking this idea as its premise, Dead Mans Town: A Tribute to Born in the U.S.A. strips the albums twelve indelible originals to the core, with contributions from Jason Isbell & Amanda Shires, Low, Nicole Atkins, Justin Townes Earle, Blitzen Trapper, Joe Pug, Trampled by Turtles, and more. Rolling Stone premiered Jason Isbell and Amanda Shires Dave Cobb-produced cover of Born In The U.S.A, saying these artists are reimagining Born in the U.S.A. ... with a reduced approach more influenced by that of the acoustic Nebraska. Isbell says of his cover, - Born In The U.S.A. is one of my favorites because so many people have seemingly misunderstood the lyrical content and the songs overall tone. When you listen to the demo, the dark, minor key arrangement makes it clear that this is not strictly a song of celebration. We wanted to stay true to that version. Amanda Shires adds, - I love that the song paints a picture of struggle in the face of the American dream, and the irony in the chorus is delivered with such force that it nearly transcends irony altogether.
