Springsteen: Liberty Hall by Nicki Germaine is an incredible archive of the photographer's previously unpublished images of a young Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band, taken over four days in March 1974 at Liberty Hall in Houston, Texas, onstage and off.

In 1974, Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band were on the verge of stardom. Four nights in March of that year summarized everything the band was about -- and about to be. They occurred in Houston at a place called Liberty Hall and photographer Nicki Germaine was there, capturing not just what happened onstage, but also backstage and behind the scenes. Now, for the first time, more than one hundred of these historic images unveil a brand new rock 'n' roll story.

This has been a deeply personal project for Nicki. Encouraged by her partner Garry Tallent to bring these photographs to the attention of the world after they sat in storage for almost fifty years, she has pulled out all the stops for this self-published work, turning her archive of photographs from those four days in March 1974 into a physical object which will be treasured by Bruce fans the world over.

This beautiful large-format hardcover book measures 10 x 13 inches and contains 168 pages of photographs and personal recollections from Nicki, Bruce Springsteen, Bob Santelli and Garry Tallent. Bruce loved the photographs so much that he agreed to write the foreword to the book.

Nicki captured the band in performance, as well as off stage: candid shots, portraits of individual band members, and the band as a whole.

"Years later," Santelli writes, "Springsteen would remember Liberty Hall enough to namecheck the venue in his song 'This Hard Land." He would also recall that the shows occurred when he and the band were 'moving out of the minor leagues and into the majors. Liberty Hall and the shows that followed marked the beginning of a real turning point,' Springsteen recalled. 'It started to feel different.' Nicki Germaine's striking photographs artfully captured that 'turning point.'"

As Bruce himself writes in his Foreword: "Nicki caught us in all our wide-eyed glory at the exotic places (virtually everywhere) that our talents would take us. These are photos from 'before.' It wouldn't last much longer, but here it is. Enjoy these wonderful photographs."
