Ten more excellent covers of Bruce Springsteen's songs:

The Hollies - Fourth of July, Asbury Park (Sandy)

David Bowie - It's Hard to Be a Saint in the City

The Band - Atlantic City

Steve Earle - State Trooper (Live)

Johnny Cash - Highway Patrolman

Elvis Costello - Brilliant Disguise

The last track was recorded to promote a concert celebrating Springsteen's birthday from Philadelphia's great public radio station WXPN at World Cafe Live on September 23rd. Many tracks were recorded at the XPN studios by local Philly artists who will all be performing these songs live on Wednesday night. The live show will be broadcast on www.xpn.org from 7-10, but in the meantime, check out a playlist of the recorded tracks here or below.
