Bruce Springsteen The Ghost of Tom Joad

The Ghost of Tom Joad is the eleventh studio album by Bruce Springsteen, released in 1995. The album was recorded and mixed at Thrill Hill during the spring and summer of 1995.

The album is mainly backed by acoustic guitar work and the lyrics on many of the tracks are a somber reflection of life in the mid-1990s in America and Mexico. Tom Joad is the hero of John Steinbeck's The Grapes of Wrath. Springsteen has commented that he was first inspired by John Ford's film of the novel.
