VINTAGE BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN PHOTO FROM PHILLY SPECTRUM, PROMOTING “DARKNESS ON THE EDGE OF TOWN” ALBUM WITH THE E-STREET BAND (5/26/ 1978)
The original transparency of this photo was sent to a newspaper in Lakeland, Florida with 19 other of my best/favorite images while applying for an internship. The slides were never returned, and I wound up losing some nice pictures. Recently, I’ve been organizing my negatives and slides and came across a color copy negative of this photo. While, the sharpness and contrast is not as good as the original I was lucky enough to have a copy.
It was a difficult lesson to learn, but I never lent any original slides and negatives to anyone after this. Oddly enough, I also lent a page of BW Springsteen negatives from this shoot to another friend, and never got them back.
