Overview

Dedication is a 1981 album by American singer Gary U.S. Bonds. The album was a critical and commercial success, marking a comeback for Bonds after several years out of the limelight. It was the first of two albums on which he collaborated with Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band, the second being On The Line, released the following year, 1982. The musicians accompanying Bonds on the album include many members of the E Street Band and the Asbury Jukes. The album includes three songs written by Bruce Springsteen, one written by Steve Van Zandt, and several covers of songs from the Beatles, Bob Dylan, Jackson Browne, and others. It also features a duet between Bonds and Springsteen on the track "Jolé Blon". Bonds' early 1960s sound had been a major influence on both Springsteen and Van Zandt. The songs written by Springsteen, plus the cover of "Jolé Blon", were originally recorded for his 1980's The River, but Springsteen felt they fit better with Bonds and his versions of them have never been released (although he has performed most of them live, often featuring Bonds as a special guest).
