UK collection. As one of rock's most prolific songwriters, Bruce Springsteen has covered a lot of bases, building a catalogue of albums that has seen him deliver stadium rockin' anthems and then switch horses mid-stream and riding solo with noir, character-based long players. In the mid-70s, Bruce's songs started to look at where he fitted in (or not). Much of the public's perception of Bruce is wrapped up in his male persona, singing songs about girls and cars, a hyper masculine image. So, how do women relate to this? Part of the inspiration for this compilation came from seeing the all-female Bruce tribute act the She Street Band at the Clapham Grand in 2019 and experiencing how these songs, which I had known all my life, took on another perspective when seen through the filter of a female protagonist. Includes tracks by the Patty Smith Group, Darlene Love, Deana Carter, Cowboy Junkies, Hem, and others.
