The Ghost of Tom Joad – Video

Some things are just spiritual I don’t know what that even means but I know how it feels. The Springsteen cover recording of his monstrous song “The Ghost of Tom Joad” is from 2004 playing San G. with Charlie Natzke (other guitar) and Chris Kee (upright bass). The YouTube video is from today’s meanderings I made without moving around too much at all. The graphic of the coast was created from a photo I took long ago at Montara beach just a couple hours up the Hwy 1 from Steinbeck’s Cannery Row in Monterey… So it goes.
