Brian Setzer's latest album Setzer Goes Instru-MENTAL! finds the guitarist stepping out of his usual rockabilly and big band comfort zone for an album of instrumentals including this cover of Earl Scruggs' jazz-bluegrass classic "Earl's Breakdown." The album won't be in stores until April 19th, but you can hear his rendition of that song here right now.

“Long Walk Home”

Bruce Springsteen | 2007

When the subject of this mournful song returns home, he hardly recognizes his town. Springsteen told Rolling Stone the alienation the man feels is a metaphor for life in a politically altered post-9/11 America. “Who would have ever thought we’d live in a country without habeas corpus?” he said. “That’s Orwellian. That’s what political hysteria is about and how effective it is. I felt it in myself. You get frightened for your family, for your home. And you realize how countries can move way off course, very far from democratic ideals.”
