Received an mp3 of Springsteen performing "Dream Baby Dream" (Thanks H). At first I wasn't sure what to make of it but the mesmeric, This Mortal Coil-esque rendition has got under my skin. It's a remote, un-nerving reading. Strangely true to the seismic nature of the original "Keep Your Dreams" but apocalyptically stark and uncompromising. I wonder what conventional Boss fans make of it?
