Sotheby’s auction of Bruce Springsteen’s handwritten lyrics for almost USD 200,000 has been getting a lot of attention over the last couple of days. I’m following a new (new to me) blog called Days of the Crazy Wild by Michael Goldberg which covered it nicely. DOTCW is well worth following generally, as Michael always posts interesting stories for followers of Bruce, Neil, Bob and other great music.
Born to Run continues to attract attention at the gallery – in fact we have three very different Born To Run pieces lined up on the gallery wall right now as part of our Xmas exhibition, any one of which would make a great Xmas gift if you missed out on the winning bid on the Bruce lyrics.
The three are represented by a mock up below, and in more detail are:
Chalkie Davies’ 1975 portrait of Bruce Springsteen outside London’s Hammersmith Odeon, gazing up at the neon sign reading "Finally London is ready for Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band";
Morgan Howell’s supersize 32×32 inch 3D painted single of the Born To Run 45, and
Eric Meola’s 31 frame contact sheet from the historic June 1975 Born To Run LP cover photo-session.
They look amazing. Come and check them out.
And why has Born to Run disappeared from Spotify? Very annoying!
