Daniel Corrigan has been the photographer on the MinneapolisŒæmusic scene since 1981äóîjust as the scene was coming to life. AsŒæboth a freelancer and the official house photographer for theŒælegendary club First Avenue, he has captured thousands of liveŒæconcerts, shot countless band promo photos, and was behindŒæthe camera for many of the best-known and most belovedŒæalbum covers by local artists. This retrospective, culled fromŒæhis personal archive of tens of thousands of photos, presentsŒæa unique perspective into a vibrant world, through nearly 500Œæevocative black-and-white and color images.ŒæFeaturing an introductory essay by music journalist DannyŒæSigelman, Heyday puts into context Corriganäó»s role as aŒæchronicler of rock-and-roll and illustrates the array of talentedŒæartists who have come through the Twin Cities, across a wideŒærange of musical styles and genres. In addition to the iconicŒæimages from Corriganäó»s oeuvre, the book offers a look at lesser-known gems as well as outtakes from legendary photo shoots. Supplemental essays explore Corriganäó»s personal recollectionsŒæof specific shoots, concerts, and interactions with musicians to provide a rare glimpse into this significant yet largely unsung fixture of the Minneapolis music scene.
