In January 1982, Bruce Springsteen, then thirty two years old and an established rock star, recorded a set of demos in his New Jersey bedroom for what was intended to be his follow up to The River, a double album issued in 1980 which had reached the top of the US Billboard.
All parties involved had grand expectations for this new album, and these demo recordings, including, as they did, Born In The USA , which was to become Bruce Springsteen’s signature hit only a few years later, promised an impressive album.
In Heart Of Darkness: Bruce Springsteen’s Nebraska, David Burke explores the album from a multitude of angles. From the nature of the material itself and the history of American folk music which foretold it, to the legacy and influence on later generations of musicians.
The book takes an in-depth look at a record whose very existence defied the commercial and corporate nature of the music industry yet which has proved itself to be a timeless classic.
