Back In 20 is a rock album released by Gary U.S. Bonds in 2004 on the M.C. Records label. The album features guest appearances by Bruce Springsteen, Southside Johnny, Dickey Betts, and Phoebe Snow. The title of the album is a reference to Bonds' sporadic croppings of popularity; first in the early 1960s, then the early 1980s, and now, again 20 some years later, in the early 2000s.[2][3]
