Barbara Pyle's intimate behind-the-scenes photographs from 1975 during the recording, rehearsing and touring of Born to Run have been eagerly awaited for forty years and are finally being published for the first time.

Barbara captured Springsteen and the Band as they were catapulted to stardom. She is also one of the only photographers who has ever been given access inside the recording studio while Springsteen is working.

"I first saw Bruce and the E Street Band by accident ... I was blown away by their music. For the next year, I drove to as many of their gigs as I could reach. They jokingly started calling me their 'official unofficial photographer.' I was just expected to be there, and I almost always was – on my self-imposed mission to document this little known New Jersey band. ... I had the remarkable good fortune to spend most of the last Born to Run months in the studio with Bruce and the band. I became sort of a living 'good luck' charm and was asked to be there many nights. I knew I was witnessing history in the making."

This stunning and intimate tome also marks the fortieth anniversary of Born to Run.

Industry Reviews

Barbara Pyle's images of Springsteen and the band in the mid-'70s are as indelible as her friend Eric Meola's cover shot for the classic 1975 album.--Backstreets
