Springsteen Photo Exhibit Debuts in Tulsa, OK

TULSA, OK – “Bruce Springsteen: A Photographic Journey,” a traveling photography exhibition curated by the GRAMMY Museum Los Angeles, will debut in Tulsa at The Woody Guthrie Center, 102 E. Brady St. The exhibition, which will open on April 29, 2014, features 45 iconic images of Bruce Springsteen. On display until the spring of 2015, the exhibit serves to document a great American music legend, and will feature photos taken by noted Springsteen photographers Danny Clinch, Ed Gallucci, Eric Meola, Pamela Springsteen and Frank Stefanko.“Our goal with this exhibition is to define the career of Bruce Springsteen in an entirely new light, as captured by these five incredible photographers,” said GRAMMY Museum executive director Bob Santelli. “Each of these photographers was able to artfully document Bruce’s world, at different stages in his career. We are honored to partner with each of them in order to help tell the story of one of the most important figures in American music.”Bruce Springsteen’s recording career spans more than 40 years, beginning with 1973’s Columbia Records release Greetings from Asbury Park, NJ. He has released 18 studio albums, garnered 20 GRAMMY Awards, won an Oscar, has been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, was a 2009 recipient of Kennedy Center Honors and was named 2013 MusiCares Person of the Year by The Recording Academy. Springsteen’s newest album High Hopes(Columbia) was released on January 14, 2014.While the majority of the exhibit focuses on Springsteen off-stage, four additional live performance photographs, shot by Barry Schneier, will be showcased. These photos were shot during the now famous Springsteen concert at Harvard Square Theater where famed Rolling Stone music journalist Jon Landau claimed, “I have seen the future of rock and roll, and its name is Bruce Springsteen.”

Additionally, the exhibit will feature video interviews with each of the photographers, produced by The GRAMMY Museum. On the evening of the launch, each of the photographers will appear at the Woody Guthrie Center for a panel discussion and Q&A, hosted by Santelli. The debut of the exhibit coincides with the one-year anniversary of the opening of the Woody Guthrie Center.

“We are thrilled to be kicking off our anniversary celebrations with this incredible exhibit featuring photographs spanning the career of Bruce Springsteen. He is an excellent example of an artist who continues the legacy of Woody Guthrie. The opening of this newly curated exhibit at the Woody Guthrie Center is a perfect fit,” said Deana McCloud, executive director.

Premiere: Bruce Springsteen’s High Hopes documentary

If you were a fan of Bruce Springsteen’s latest album, High Hopes — and there’s a good chance you were, since it debuted at number one in 20 countries — this new HBO documentary is a must-watch.

Called Bruce Springsteen’s High Hopes, the 30 minutes of behind-the-scenes footage chronicles the making of his 18th album, from scouting Rage Against the Machine’s Tom Morello to recording the tracks. It will air in the U.S. on April 4 at 9:30 p.m. ET on HBO, but CBC Music has the Canadian exclusive preview of it for you right now, here. 

The doc was helmed by longtime Springsteen chronicler Thom Zimny (The Promise: The Making of Darkness on the Edge of TownBruce Springsteen: A Conversation With His FansWings for Wheels: The Making of Born to Run), and includes up-close-and-personal footage of Springsteen in the studio, plus rehearsal footage and interviews with the Boss, Morello and more.

“I find I’m trying to resolve something internally. That’s really the thrust,” Springsteen says of his writing process in the documentary. “It’s where all the fuel for what you’re going to do is.”

Watch it in full now a week before its April 4 HBO premiere, which comes just before the E Street Band receives the award for musical excellence at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony April 10.

There are two types of Bruce Springsteen fans who have been rocked by a live E Street Band show. Those who caught the band on the Darkness 78/79 tour, and those who wish they could have.

The Light in Darkness

by

 
So legendary are those 115 concerts from May 1978 to January 1979, and so pivotal was the period in Springsteen’s music career that books, album re-releases, outtakes and documentaries have all delved into the Darkness-era in recent years.
Photographer and Springsteen-book author Lawrence Kirsch’s limited edition book The Light In Darkness is one that puts the fans and the incredible impact of Springsteen’s fourth album centre stage.

Recalling details of how they ended up in the audience for one – or several – shows, every stop of the tour is covered through the personal memories of a fan.
With more than 100 stories, common themes run throughout – how they discovered Springsteen, how many didn’t appreciate Darkness upon first listen only to later find it an influential favourite, and how seeing the band live changed their life.
These tales are joined by more than 200 fantastic photographs from the shows that provide a glimpse into everything about  the experience of the tour – from the style and intensity to the expressions of everyone in the band. 
Something that could be taken for granted today with the abundance of Springsteen fans’ blogs, such as this one, that seek to do the same thing through recaps of a show and photos from a phone snapped from the pit.

In a world dominated by comprehensive online resources easily detailing Springsteen’s concerts and shows in minute, visual detail, one of the most impressive things about this book is how it does the same with great images and props from the era.

So when fans recall hearing the ’78 version of Prove It All Night or how they felt when Springsteen broke the established conventions and left the stage to join them during Spirit In The Night, anyone who has been to an E Street Show can relate and picture themselves right there at the show more than three decades earlier.

Admittingly while after 50 pages in some of the stories can become tiresome as they repeat the similar tales of discovering Springsteen and seeing their first show. But the impact of the album and the tour itself is never lost. And as the structure uses short stories to follow every concert venue, the book is perfect for casual readers wanting to dip into the legendary shows from time to time, rather than take in the entire tour at once.

Although focusing on the fans, the chronological visit to the tour also creates a picture of how Springsteen and the band developed surrounding the release of Darkness and the troubles they overcame. 

What has been frequently touched on in other biographies about Springsteen’s legal battle and the direction he took afterwards are given a new and unique perspective through the eyes of dozens of concert goers instead of a single writer.

It is the details surrounding what has become accepted as a crucial time in E Street history that stands The Light In Darkness out amongst the increasingly heavy shelves of Springsteen books currently out there.
Not only a worthy companion to documentary The Promise: The Making of Darkness On The Edge Of Town, but also an excellent answer to those who constantly question fans lining up for hours outside venues for the best pit position for every concert they can get to.
Part of what makes this book such a fun addition to the expanding collections is how fans share their exclusive part in some of the final shows that the band would play in smaller venues. Offering experiences that many concert-goers today dream of.

As Kirsch said “The book will give readers at least a small perspective of what we experienced in 1978.”


“The connection and bond made between performer and audience during this tour set the stage for all future albums and tours to come.”

Like the album that inspired the stories within, this book is one fans will no doubt return to again and again.The Light In Darkness is a limited edition book only available from The Light in Darkness

(The book is not available in shops)But be quick, when I contacted author Lawrence Kirsch for photos to use in this review he informed me there were less than 120 copies left. Plus, until March 3, 2014, those remaining books also come with half-price shipping and the author’s signature upon request.
