Manfred Mann's Earth Band specialized in doing pretty radical cover versions of songs by Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen and others. Their take on the latter's "For You", that originally appeared on Springsteen's 1973 debut album, is one of several well-crafted performances by the band. Manfred Mann's signature keyboard works and singer Chris Thompson's performance give the song the added elements of bombast. Not that it really needed that, but it makes for a different and pretty successful listening experience. It's lifted from the band's 1980 album Chance.
