Springsteen covers Commodores’ Night Shift. The song was written in 1985 by lead singer Walter Orange in collaboration with Dennis Lambert and Franne Golde, as a tribute to soul/R&B singers Jackie Wilson and Marvin Gaye, both of whom died in 1984. A full album, honoring and covering R&B singers of that era, will be released by Springsteen in early November.
I hope to hear some of those songs and more at one of the tour stops of Springsteen and the E-Street next year. I’m still fishing around for a ticket. A tad expensive, but at my age and as a rock and roll lifer, I’m more than willing to pay the price.
