Uncut gave away two albums of Springsteen covers with twin editions of Take 71 earlier this year. But his songbook is so vast, Light Of Day offers a further 29 such recordings, with only Dion’s “Book Of Dreams” and Patty Griffin’s “Stolen Car” overlapping. Standouts on CD 1 include Dan Bern’s acoustic “Thunder Road”, Nils Lofgren’s “Man At The Top”, Matthew Ryan’s eerie “Something In The Night” and Steve Wynn’s up-all-night, dark and whacked-out “State Trooper”. CD 2 offers Elvis Costello’s countrified “Brilliant Disguise”, Graham Parker doing “Pink Cadillac” as an acoustic blues and a surprisingly affecting “New York City Serenade” by Pete Yorn. Yes, our Springsteen CDs were given away free. But Light Of Day is in a good cause: all royalties are being donated to medical charities.
