BOLDLY INSCRIBED BY BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN
SPRINGSTEEN, Bruce. Album cover inscribed (“Tunnel of Love”). New York: Columbia Records, 1987. Original album sleeve, measuring 12-1/2 by 12-1/2 inches. $1850.
Original album cover for “Tunnel of Love,” boldly inscribed: “To Pal Dick, Bruce Springsteen.”
“So Bruce Springsteen met a girl, fell in love, got married and made an album of songs about meeting a girl, falling in love and getting married. And if you think it’s that cut and dried, you don’t know Springsteen. Far from being a series of hymns to cozy domesticity, Tunnel of Love is an unsettled and unsettling collection of hard looks at the perils of commitment” (Rolling Stone). With original LP.
Ink of “To” in inscription unobtrusively rubbed away leaving only impression, edges of inner sleeve split, minor rubbing to outer sleeve with two small splits to edges. An exceptionally good inscribed piece of rock and roll memorabilia, scarce inscribed.
