New hardcover book out now 

An unprecedented look at Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band, from the group’s creation and early New Jersey days to their meteoric rise and seminal Born in the USA tour, as photographed by David Gahr

This is the first book of images of Bruce Springsteen by David Gahr (1922–2008), who shot the cover images for Bruce Springsteen’s second album, The Wild, the Innocent and the E Street Shuffle. Gahr’s earliest photographs of the musician showcase a youthful Springsteen in Asbury Park, New Jersey, on the eve of a career breakthrough. Gahr befriended the rising star, and over a span of approximately ten years he photographed Springsteen, both on and offstage.

This new book includes previously unpublished images of Springsteen recording, performing at the Bottom Line weeks before the release of his seminal 1975 album Born to Run, and playing to legions of fans during his Born in the USA tour.
