Circa 'Nebraska,' Monmouth County, New Jersey, 1982
We did several different location shots for Nebraska. He came to Haddonfield [and] we took a drive to the New Jersey Pine Barrens one day. This particular shot was taken at a carriage house that he rented at the Navesink River in Monmouth County, where he actually recorded Nebraska. That was the bedroom where his TEAC 4-track deck was used to record Nebraska, that Gibson guitar was the same guitar that he used on the album. What I loved about it was this was a rented house, he's sitting on a bed with the paint-by-numbers Gainsborough hanging on the wall, and this inexpensive-looking table lamp. This evokes to me what maybe a roadside motel out on Route 66 somewhere. It was pure rockabilly to me.
