Bruce Springsteen & The Seeger Sessions Band - "Bring Em' Home" & "Pay Me My Money Down" on Late Night With Conan O'Brien 06/23/06

There's a certainty that this is one of the best performances that I've ever seen from a late night television program. Stereogum posted a link to the YouTube files for Bruce Springsteen & The Seeger Sessions Band's performance on Late Night With Conan O'Brien from this past friday and it is absolutely spectacular. The band consists of literally some twenty musicians (well...Jimmy Fallon & Thomas Hayden Church are there too...playing the spoons...) which all lend their individual talents flawlessly creating a massive musical orgy. If there's one performance you check out this week, let it be this (oh...and I still have a considerable distaste for Jimmy Fallon, in all his spoon playing, camera-time stealing glory):
