We gave it a B-

The latest ballyhoo to Bruce stresses lesser-known material performed by lower-wattage stars at softer sound levels. These differences give the CD distinction. While many versions still wind up routine, the 37 numbers here feature plenty of standouts. Rosie Flores lends ”Lucky Town” a new ache, Nils Lofgren gives ”Man at the Top” a touching edge, and Patty Griffin makes ”Stolen Car” race with feeling.
