Bruce Springsteen, Blinded by the Light

Patrick Humphries, Author Henry Holt & Company $12.45 (176p) ISBN 978-0-03-008532-1
British journalist Humphries and collector Hunt have compiled arguably ""the ultimate Springsteen manual.'' In the first section, Humphries, who writes that Springsteen ``conjures up the American dream,'' captures the performer's appeal in a nicely etched biographical portrait. The book's second half, ``The Bruce Files,'' by Hunt, exhaustively catalogues Springsteen's radio/TV/concert and rock-video appearances. The extensive discography alphabetically lists all Springsteen songs and recordings (including bootlegs). Remarkably, Hunt also attempts to document every song Springsteen has ever sung written by other artistseven if Springsteen sung it only once. Including more than 275 illustrations of posters, torn tickets, record labels, magazine covers, Japanese record jackets, newspaper clips, etc., this career compendium is calculated to dazzle any Springsteen fan.
