By some random train of thought, you've reminded me that I ought to bust out "Nebraska", which I haven't heard for ages. Awesome album


Haha yeah. I'm the man's biggest fan. On top of having everything he's ever done, I've got about 500 bootleg shows on CD. :freak: Anyway, Nebraska is a great album. I've never heard anything else quite like it, that's for sure...
