Apparently not enough to mention a single song, even when specifically asked.

That's why this topic must clearly be a wind-up. No intelligent person would make such a judgement otherwise. ;-)

Then I started playing in a band, and they covered a few of his songs from the Nebraska album.
So I went out and bought 'Nebraska' on CD. I loved it immediately and played it to death. I'd heard that another one of Bruce's albums 'The Ghost Of Tom Joad' was a similar style. So I bought that. I loved it.
Then I heard a few songs from the 'We Shall Overcome' album, and I just had to pick that up aswell..

So it turns out I really like Bruce's folkier side. However I still don't like the big band material.

The man has my utmost respect though. He's written some amazing music, he's still going strong at what, 64? He rocks stadiums for over 3 hours at a time.. and let's face it, he's pretty cool 8)

Try his latest album "Wrecking ball". It´s actually very folkish:
