Recently read an interesting interview with Andrea Klein, who designed several of Bruce Springsteen's album and single sleeves. She mentioned that during the initial "Born in the USA" packaging discussions, Bruce was very intrigued by the photographs in Joseph Szabo's book "Almost Grown", and seemed committed to the idea of using them within the design. He eventually drifted away from the idea, but after looking at some of those photos, I really wish he'd stuck with them. They seem perfect to me.

I was also surprised to see this shot, which some of you may recognize.
