Nebraska is one of those albums, that have inspired lots of artists. There are many singer/songwriters that says it is their favourite Springsteen record. There are tribute albums covering Nebraska, Badlands: A Tribute to Bruce Springsteen’s Nebraska beeing the best known. It was released by Sub Pop Records in 2000. Another is the new release, Long Distance Salvation.
Concerts/tribute shows are played to honor this now 30 year old masterpiece.
I have picked some of my favourite versions of these fantastic songs, I hope you like them. Seek out the artists, and if you haven’t got Nebraska, well, buy it, everybody should at least have one copy of this artwork.
