1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By B. Margolis on April 6, 2012
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
It's a large paperback, with tons of photos, ads and promotion weirdness. It looks like it's a complete account of this important record label of the 1960's.

However, the cover is rubber cemented to the binding and it came apart during the first read of the book. Also, there's a bunch of minor errors:

1. They do mention useful information about "Out Of Time" being issued in the US on MGM (and how that came about), but they failed to mention the two Twice As Much singles issued on MGM.

2. They do not mention that Small Faces' "Here Comes The Nice" and P.P. Arnold's "First Cut Is The Deepest" were issued on the short-lived US Immediate label, distributed by United Artists, at all!

3. They say that Steve Marriott produced The Herd's "Sunshine Cottage" on Deram Records. Problem is it was issued on Fontana Records.

The overall story is spot on, but it was not spot checked to fix any errors.
