^Yup. Originally done by Edwin Starr. I think Springsteen covered it though.

Did Springsteen really cover it?

That's pretty awesome.

^ Yeah, Springsteen did. I think I have the MP3 somewhere on this PC.

That's cool.

Is on a studio album, because if it is I might have it.

I dunno, I found this on YouTube. He did it with Edwin Starr, so I don't know if it's considered a cover:

For some reason, YouTube hasn't been working for me lately.

That sounds pretty sweet, though.

I'm assuming it's live, since it's on YouTube. I think that it would be considered a cover if Edwin Starr was a guest at Springsteen's concert, rather than the other way around.

Yeah, I believe it was live. I'm not much of a Springsteen expert, but my bros(huge Springsteen fans) DL'ed the song a while back and I've heard it. Good live cover.

EDIT: According to the file information for the MP3 I have, it's on Live 1975-1985 disc 3.

Is there a specific date for that show?

I mean... there's a lot of days (and therefore a lot of concerts performed) in ten years.

There were those 3 live albums of his, they never say the dates...

Well, there's a chance I have this album in the house.

I don't really listen to Springsteen much, but my dad has a few of his albums and CDs, so there's a possibility I have it somewhere.
