Bruce Springsteen’s Nebraska Covered, part one

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.
