Daniel Corrigan has been the photographer on the Minneapolis music scene since 1981—just as the scene was coming to life. As both a freelancer and the official house photographer for the legendary club First Avenue, he has captured thousands of live concerts, shot countless band promo photos, and was behind the camera for many of the best-known and most beloved album covers by local artists. This retrospective, culled from his personal archive of tens of thousands of photos, presents a unique perspective into a vibrant world, through nearly 500 evocative black-and-white and color images. Featuring an introductory essay by music journalist Danny Sigelman, Heyday puts into context Corrigan's role as a chronicler of rock-and-roll and illustrates the array of talented artists who have come through the Twin Cities, across a wide range of musical styles and genres. In addition to the iconic images from Corrigan's oeuvre, the book offers a look at lesser-known gems as well as outtakes from legendary photo shoots. Supplemental essays explore Corrigan's personal recollections of specific shoots, concerts, and interactions with musicians to provide a rare glimpse into this significant yet largely unsung fixture of the Minneapolis music scene. "Heyday is a feast for the eyes and ears that time and again speaks to Corrigan's singular gift as a photographer...Corrigan's obvious intimacy with his subjects and love for the music and scene shine through in every shot." —Jim Walsh, MinnPost This new paperback edition of the best-selling Heyday features as additional ten pages of photos not contained in the original hardcover—including recent shots as well as forgotten gems from deep within the Corrigan archive.
