Going Cali!


The Castiles post will be the last one for a while, I'm going for a well deserved vacation under that warm Californian sun! I'll be back around the time the Magic tour wraps up. With the pace the bootlegs have been coming out, I'll probably fall hopelessly behind in reviewing them. In the mean time I have put the "Born to Run" studio album on top of the pile for the road trip. I figure I'll hear that album plenty of times Between San Fransisco and L.A., especially since I'm detouring through the Sequoia forest and Joshua Tree park.

Till I'm back I'll leave you with an appropriate tune that Springsteen didn't exactly cover, but he did play a snippet of during Light of Day on October 23rd 1999 in Los Angeles, "California Sun".

Written by Henry Glover and Morris Levy, first performed by Joe Jones, popularized by the Rivieras and covered by just about everybody from the Ramones to the Chris Isaak, I could fill a stack of CDs with just this song for the road trip. I haven't found a vinyl version yet, but I'll leave you with the Richardo Ray Orchestra version from Vampi Soul's excellent In Search Of Cool compilation.
