This is why he's the boss. His debut album is like nothing else, the missing link that fills the huge gap between Van Morrison and Bob Seger. Hauntingly nostalgic drifter music, confused and heartfelt with workingman honesty. The opening tracking is "Blinded by the Light".... Yup that Manfred Mann song that that made everybody at the skating rink yell "douche" at the same time. I always hated that song until I heard the original.. I was blown away... I could'nt understand how MM could go so far out of his way to make a great song suck. "Does this Bus Stop"made me wanna sell my car so I could have conversations with a bus driver and "Spirt in the Night" makes me think about how awesome life was when I was 16.
