Covers Of The Boss' Atlantic City

Since the first time I heard The Band's cover of Springsteen's Atlantic City, I was absolutely hooked on covers of that song. I love the song, the original from the Nebraska record, I mean, of course. But for some reason, I really love covers of this song. Unlike our list of songs that should cease to be covered, this one should be covered more.

Besides The Band, my other favorite cover of this song is by Hank III which is distinctly more (true) country than any of the other covers I've heard.

Anyway, I was out seeing Phil King and Daniel Stokes (of the Austin band Flatcar Rattlers) last night at Jovita's and they covered it. Never disappoints, this song.

Check out the whole recording here:

I've seen pretty good covers of this one by Wade Bowen and Rodney Parker as well. One of my favorite Springsteen songs for sure!
