Item description for Born to Run: The Unseen Photos by Daniel Wolff Bruce Springsteen...
"It is a magnificent album that pays off on every bet ever placed on him---and it should crack his future wide open." - Rolling Stone, on the 1975 release of Bruce Springsteen's album Born To Run. Photographer Eric Meola was hired thirty years ago to do a photo shoot which resulted in the iconic rock n' roll album Born to Run. This magnificent book recreates that photography session, contains all of Bruce's lyrics, and includes an introduction by distinguished popular music writer Daniel Wolff. Bruce Springsteen is one of the most important songwriters and performers of the last three decades. Born to Run is the album that put Bruce Springsteen on the cover of both Newsweek and Time. It is a timeless snapshot of Americana---all sweaty, high energy, and tuned to a carnival-like level. For many critics of the day, Born to Run made Springsteen the most important artist of his generation. It was this album that Springsteen's songs first portrayed a glorious yet very real side of the American Dream. In this book, Eric Meola shares the photographic alternates and outtakes, most for the very first time, in stunning black- and-white quadratones, more than thirty years after the album's release. In addition to the many never-before --seen photographs, here for the first time and in one place are all of the lyrics from this iconic American album.

Born to Run: The Unseen Photos Apr 26, 2008
For any true Springsteen fan to have anything that gives you a glimpse into the beginnings of greatness is awesome. Great photos, some amusing, worth the purchase. Only disappointment had nothing to do with the book itself but with the way it was shipped. Came in a bit banged up and dirty - this site should bubble wrap the individual item and not just toss it in a box.
Bruuuuuuuuuce Apr 1, 2008
Very professional and quick delivery time. Would do business again in a heartbeat, no complaints.
great book,better pictures,the best songwriter Mar 10, 2008
This book has been made by a person who really apreciates Bruce's songs and for people who feel the same. It's a beautiful review of the pictures taken 30 years ago for Born to Run album. The paper used,the quality of the material, the compositon of the images...
For real old school fans only Jan 3, 2008
We just took a ton of photos of my 6 month old twin girls for our Christmas card. Looking at all those digital images trying to decide which was the best shot reminded me a lot of looking at this book. A lot of pictures of the subjects (in their case Bruce and Clarence Clemons and in my case Katie and Maggie) in a couple of different outfits in poses only slightly different from the shot before. After awhile they all start to look alike until finally you just say, "Uhh, that one," the person next to you agrees and you have your album cover/Christmas card.
Seriously, I am a big Springsteen fan and liked both his music and his look from that time best, so the book was a must for me, but if you're not that kind of fan and like Springsteen because you think he is or was cute--this ain't the book for you.
Absolutely worth waiting Dec 6, 2007
A book with really great pics. It's a must have for a Springsteen-fan. Worth every penny. What more can I say.
