Like many, I suspect, I discovered this album via his sublime cover of "In Bloom" which joins the list that includes Johnny Cash's "Hurt", Jimi Hendrix's "All Along The Watchtower" and Joe Cocker's "With A Little Help From My Friends" as covers that usurp the original and become THE version. My only criticism is that it ruined Springsteen's "Hitchhikin'" for me. Listen to them both and tell me Bruce hasn't heard it!
I love the extensive use of the horn section throughout, that keeps the style from ever slipping into any one pigeonhole, other than that of "excellent".
