I'm delighted to note the inclusion of 'Dream Baby Dream' in the tracklisting of Bruce Springsteen's new studio LP, 'High Hopes', which is slated for release in January. Springsteen performed his interpretation of the 1979 Suicide single on over 60 occasions in 2005, releasing one of those live versions as a limited edition 10" single in 2008.
A few years ago there were a large number of
audience recordings of the song floating about on
YouTube, all taped throughout 2005, though many have disappeared in the interim. A few still
cling on, however, and I'd recommend checking out
the whole lot. From the early tentative run-throughs, to the glorious, epic performances
towards the tour's conclusion, Springsteen's take
on 'Dream Baby Dream' rarely fails to floor me and
I'm pleased that it'll now gain the wider
recognition it deserves.
