David Gahr’s Springsteen photobook published

David Gahr was undoubtedly one of the most celebrated rock photographers. Born in 1922, he witnessed the rock’n’roll explosion since the 50s, and photographed Bob Dylan, Van Morrison, Pete Seeger, Johnny Cash, Janis Joplin, John Lennon, Buddy Guy, Odetta, Phil Spector and many more, including, of course, Bruce Springsteen.

Gahr started following the New Jersey singer in 1973, and is the author of the cover photo of the album The Wild, The Innocent and The E Street Shuffle. His black and white photos occupied innumerable pages in magazines and books (including Dave Marsh’s acclaimed biography Born to Run).

When Mr. Gahr died in 2008, he left a legacy of thousands of photographs. This month Rizzoli has published the book Bruce Springsteen: From Asbury Park, to Born To Run, to Born In The USA, featuring a huge selection of color and black and white photos taken between 1973 and 1986, thus covering the artist’s career from his early days in Asbury Park until the worldwide succes of Born in the USA.

John Wesley Harding unveils 1994 video with Bruce Springsteen

For the first time ever, we get to see a video of John Wesley and Bruce Springsteen performing “Wreck on the Highway” in June 1994 at McCabe’s Guitar Shop in Santa Monica.

The song had been previously been published as a bonus track on harding’s CD Awake, back in 1998, and this week will be part of the Record Store Day vinyl Greatest Other People’s Hits.

Omnivore Recordings has published today a video of that great performance, the first time Wes and Bruce played together. A year later Harding hand the rare honor of opening two of Bruce Springsteen’s 1995 solo shows in Berkeley, California, when he was touring to promote The Ghost of Tom Joad.

John Wesley Harding & Bruce Springsteen

Ocurrió en junio de 1994: Wes y Bruce cantaron juntos por primera vez. En el pequeñísimo McCabe’s Guitar Shop de Santa Monica ambos cantaron “Wreck on the Highway”. Un año después Harding tuvo el rarísimo honor de telonear a Springsteen en dos de sus conciertos de la gira acústica Solo Acoustic Tour (The Ghost of Tom Joad).

La versión a duo de “Wreck on the Highway” se había publicado ya en el CD Awake en 1998, y esta semana se incluyo de nuevo en el vinilo Greatest Other People’s Hits, editado con motivo del Día de la Tienda de Discos (en inglés Record Store Day). La discográfica que publica este vinilo, Omnivore Recordings, ha desvelado hoy la grabación en vídeo de ese concierto, inédita hasta ahora.
