The Boss's version of Chimes Of Freedom is the best one I ver heard. it sends chills down your spine.
The Boss sure lives up to his name on this one.
Excellent job......

I shed a tear or more with Springsteen version. Had not heard the song until then, but if you care about the sentiment of the words you can't go wrong either way. A beautiful, touching, timeless song.

CALL IT A DRAWER DEPENDING ON WHAT MOOD YOU'RE IN AT THE MOMENT!! (BUT DAMN BRUCE GIVES IT 1000% ALL HE'S GOT.. RIVALING IN PATHOS TO HIS OWN THUNDER ROAD ACOUSTIC )

I love Bob Dylan's version!

Love Dylan and Springsteen, but the Byrds' 1965 version is, by far, the best.
