Woven of flashbacks by musicians, artists, authors, radicals and folks who “were there” in the '60s, this book by author Alan Bisbort (The White Rabbit and Other Delights) and Rolling Stone staffer Parke Puterbaugh travels through: San Francisco's rock revolution, with bands like the Jefferson Airplane and the Grateful Dead; the British underground scene, with Pink Floyd and Cream; the phenomenon of The Beatles' “Sgt. Pepper”; the dawn of psychedelia in Los Angeles, with the Doors and Frank Zappa; and rock's festival years, from Monterey to the Isle of Wight. It also explores psychedelic literature, journalism, posters, films, fashion, lingo and more, plus the impact of politics and the rebuff of radicals such as Abbie Hoffman, Timothy Leary and Allen Ginsberg. In full color throughout, the book features lots of photos, a helpful index, and a foreword by Howard Kaylan of The Turtles.
