    Bruce Springsteen’s Darkness on the Edge of Town broke new ground for The Boss in 1978. A counterpoint to the operatic elegance of Born to Run, the album was an angry, raw record that burst forth after a three-year hiatus.

    Because of its darker tones, some might call Darkness a difficult album, but despite this, it’s a cherished gem for many.

    Collecting stories and photos from hundreds of fans, The Light in Darkness celebrates this classic record, allowing readers to revisit the excitement of that moment when the needle found the grooves in that first cut and the thundering power of “Badlands” shook across the hi-fi for the very first time. Or the uninitiated, but soon-to-be-converted teenager, brought along by friends and finding salvation at one of the legendary three-plus hour concerts – shows that embodied all the manic fury of a revival meeting.

    The book is also for those more recent converts to The Boss who may have stumbled across a dusty bootleg in a used record store – discovering the magic of the Agora or the Winterland shows.

    Finally, The Light in Darkness is for those who never gave Bruce’s fourth album much consideration; those more partial to the high-polished sounds of Born to Run or the stadium-rousing choruses of Born in the U.S.A. For the skeptics, just read the tales of those who struggle with the dark and trembling frustration of “Something in the Night,” the open-road emptiness of “Racing in the Street,” and the too-faraway hope of “The Promised Land.” A troubling album indeed. But the passion, the connection, the thrill of the fans as they explore this classic record will make a convert of anyone.
