bruce hornsby may not have the best singing voice, but he is one o' the few virtuosos playing pop music today... and his band may be one o' the more impressive collections o' musical talent we can recollect. heck, he gots sonny emory playing drums. live performances is particular impressive as the various members o' the band cut loose.
I know it can get somewhat trite, but sometimes Springsteen's would-be-epic blue collar americana stuff just gets to me. Maybe it's because I'm from New Jersey (in fact, born to parents who went to the same High School as Bruce did, a couple years behind him). Anyhow, this version of "The River", with an extended narrative intro, is a representative example.
