It's doubtful that any Bruce Springsteen fan ever expected they'd buy an album on which The Boss sings that primary school favourite ''Froggie Went a Courtin'''. Yet, on this lively new album, he covers the amphibian sing-along as well as 12 other tunes popularised by the American folk legend, Pete Seeger.

Springsteen and his fantastic band largely favour folk standards and spirituals over the political songs that got the Communist Seeger blacklisted in the 1950s. Recorded live in the living room of Springsteen's New Jersey farmhouse, it's very much in the spirit of Bob Dylan's Basement Tapes or The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band's classic Will The Circle Be Unbroken - a fine example of a contemporary artist taking great delight in collaborating with crack musicians and mining his country's songwriting past.

The album bristles with the sound of fiddles, banjo, accordion, pump organ, horns and Bruce's boozed-up hollers to the band. All of which can be seen on the 30 minute DVD that complements the album.

It's a long way from Born To Run but, in its own foot-tappin' way, no less exhilarating.
