Cover Song Spotlight: "Suzanne" by the Castiles



Today, we're reaching way back in Springsteen's career to 1967, spotlighting his cover of "Suzanne" by Leonard Cohen.  Even though I'm part of the Internet generation, there's still part of me that's in awe of the Internet's power to preserve rare performances such as the one above.  I have wasted hours just digging through YouTube and finding pre-E Street Band Bruce performances (as well as watching old Mr. Show skits).

And, yes, since this song is about a woman, I'm tying it into our very-very-loosely-themed Women's History Month that we've had going on here.
