Streets of Fire: Bruce Springsteen in Photographs and Lyrics 1977-1979

Meola, Eric Author

Image Not Available

“On a day like this, I remember—I’m the President, but he’s The Boss.”
—President Barack Obama, 2009 Kennedy Center Awards ceremony

Compiled by accomplished photographer Eric Meola—who knew “the Boss” when he was just an unknown Jersey kid with big rock and roll dreams—Streets of Fire is an intimate photographic look at Bruce Springsteen during a pivotal year in his life and career. In 1977, Springsteen was coming off the enormous success of his album, Born to Run, and in the studio working on his fourth record, Darkness on the Edge of Town—and these breathtaking candid photos are portraits of a master musician finally coming into his own.  A stunning collection of photographs—some never before published—of Bruce and the E-Street Band combined with the haunting lyrics of some of Springsteen’s most unforgettable songs, Streets of Fire offers fans a privileged and rarefied look at one of rock’s most legendary and beloved icons.

From the Back Cover:

An intimate, behind-the-scenes look at Bruce Springsteen as you've never seen him before. This collection includes more than seventy black-and-white photographs by photographer Eric Meola, lyrics by Bruce Springsteen, and an essay by Joyce Millman.

Eric Meola first saw Bruce Springsteen perform in 1973 at New York's legendary club Max's Kansas City. He began photographing Springsteen the following year, just before the release of his breakthrough album, Born to Run, for which Meola shot the cover album art. Meola continued photographing Springsteen throughout his early career, most notably from 1977 through 1979, when Springsteen was emerging as a bona-fide rock star.

This carefully curated collection of images gives us a revelatory look at Springsteen as he was coming to terms with his newfound success and creating the music for his fourth album, Darkness on the Edge of Town. Complete with an introduction from Meola, an insightful end-of-book essay by Joyce Millman, and running lyrics to several of Springsteen's songs, this book also shows how Meola's evocative portraits reveal Springsteen as he really was—an artist at the crossroads of his fledgling career, writing about dark themes and finding redemption through his own words and image.

About the Author:

Eric Meola's photographs can be found in private and public collections, including the International Center of Photography in New York, the National Portrait Gallery in Washington, D.C., and the George Eastman House in Rochester, New York. His images have appeared in numerous magazines, including Life, Travel & Leisure, Esquire, and Time. Streets of Fire: Bruce Springsteen in Photographs and Lyrics 1977–1979 is his fifth book. He lives in Sagaponack, New York.

Book Description HarperCollins Publishers Inc, United States, 2012. Hardback. Book Condition: New. 264 x 256 mm. Language: English Brand New Book. On a day like this, I remember - I m the President, but he s The Boss. President Obama, commenting on Bruce Springsteen, Kennedy Center awards ceremony, 2009. Before Bruce Springsteen became The Boss, he was just a kid musician from New Jersey, playing at the City s local stomping grounds and hawking tickets to his shows at $5.50 a pop. Photographer Eric Meola saw The Boss potential, having witnessed a glimmer of it at a 1973 show at Max s Kansas City and later in 1975, after spending a day behind the lens, snapping photos of the young songwriter as they drove up and down Jersey s legendary Highway 9. Meola got Springsteen so well that one of his shots - the image of Springsteen leaning on Clarence Clemons shoulder - would become the cover of the Born to Run album. Meola s photo shoot with The Boss in 1977 was different. By that time, Springsteen was more firmly coming into his own, having won some critical acclaim and a legion of dedicated fans. Springsteen arrived at Meola s New York City studio carrying a small paper bag with a change of clothes. His beard was gone; this was clearly a new stage in his life, a departure from Born to Run . Over the days that followed, Meola took several photographs of Springsteen, his lens adjusting to the new persona-Springsteen, the rock star-that emerged from the darkness. Streets of Darkness is a carefully curated collection of Meola s photographs - some of which have never been published before - from those 1977 photo shoots. They span an afternoon spent in Holmdel at Telegraph Hill Road, drives on Highway 9, afternoons spent in Meola s studio, and days goofing around playing softball with the rest of the E Street Kings - intimate portraits that provide a window in the early days and life of one of the world s most legendary performers. Deluxe in size, this book is more than a must-have item for Springsteen fans; it is a work of art just as memorable and moving as the album Darkness on the Edge of Town . Complete with an introduction from Meola, an insightful essay that puts the photo shoot into historical context, and running lyrics to several of Springsteen s songs, this collectible volume shows Springsteen as he was - an artist at the crossroads of his fledgling career, writing about dark themes and finding redemption through his own words and image.
