A book issued in conjunction with an exhibition curated by Esopus of Rosenbaum's photographs at Pioneer Works in Red Hook, Brooklyn. These photographs, featuring great artists such as David Bowie, Blondie, and Lou Reed, were taken by Ed Rosenbaum at rock concerts in the New York area during the late '70s and early '80s, and published here for the first time. The publisher writes, "'It was a way to remember the shows you went to,' he [Rosenbaum] recalls in the interview that opens the book. The fact that Rosenbaum took all of these stunning photos from the floor- in many cases, from seats far away from the stage- is a testament to both his vision and his enthusiasm for the acts he documented."
