A few songs by the talented singer/songwriter Patti Scialfa. Probably better known to most people as a member of Bruce Springsteen‘s E Street Band and for being married to Springsteen since 1991. To be honest I didn’t know anything about her or how long she had already been in the music business trying to promote her own songs when she joined the E Street Band in 1984, but I found out around the same time that she had by then already worked with Southside Johnny & the Asbury Jukes who was already a huge favorite of mine. When her first solo album “Rumble Doll” was released in 1993 I initially bought it because of Springsteen’s involvement (of course) but later on when I listened to it again I began to appreciate Patti Scialfa’s talents as an independent artist and some of the songs have become favorites. Even more after hearing some performed live in concert in slightly different versions years later.
