The exhibition also will feature listening stations, where visitors can hear never-before-released songs by the Castiles, Springsteen’s successful 1972 audition for Columbia Records, and interviews with Springsteen on topics such as his songwriting process. Additionally, visitors can hear his first recording session and some of his best known albums.
Video footage throughout the exhibition includes archival performances, an edited version of Wings for Wheels: The Making of Born to Run, and clips of Springsteen’s appearance on MTV Unplugged in 1992.
National Constitution Center President and CEO David Eisner indicates, “It is fitting that the Center – the only museum dedicated to America‟s constitutional freedoms – is the first and only venue in the nation to host this exhibition from the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum. We are certain that our visitors, from the most devoted Springsteen fans to those experiencing his music for the first time, will be inspired.”
Jim Henke, vice president of exhibitions and chief curator at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum, explains, “I worked very closely with Bruce and his organization to put this exhibit together. It’s a comprehensive look at Bruce’s entire career and contains numerous items that have never been seen by the public. The exhibit was a huge hit when it was at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and I am very happy that even more people will be able to see it now.”
