The Boss released his first album 44 years ago...

Bruce Springsteens' Greetings From Asbury Park, NJ was released on January 5th, 1973.  It was his very first solo album and he has been rocking it ever since!

The album featured the song "Blinded By The Light."  British band Mannfred Mann's Earth band went on to cover the song and it reached #1 on the Billboard Hot 100.

Which version is better?

Springsteen's version

Blinded by the light- Bruce springsteen.

Or Mannfred Mann's version

Manfred Mann's Earth Band- Blinded by the Light

The hit song "Blinded by the Light" by Manfred Mann's Earth Band. This is one of my personal favorite songs of all time. I figured that since I had it downloaded, I may as well upload it to YouTube. Apparently that was a good idea.
