A terrific 'guide' for a once 'magical' era in SF. I worked for Discount Records in Berkeley 1968-69 so was a Fillmore Ticket Outlet.
I was lucky to live in SF area, and work for Fillmore Corp. in Bill Graham and David Rubinson's Record Company. Was really neat to meet many of the musicians and artists and photographers..ie Herb Greene, Jim Marshall, Bruce Steinberg, among others, as well a writers like Ed Shea, Ben Fong Torres,and the great Ralph Gleason. It was especially fun to see and watch young "up and coming" SF musicians like Carlos Santana, Boz Scaggs, Cold Blood, Ronnie Montrose, and early Journey w Greg Rolie & Neal Schoen..and East Bay' Funksters' Tower of Power…before they were big name 'stars'...
It was an exciting time, and well chronicled by Joel Selvin..who did his homework here and got to right !!. Highly recommend.!

Having grown up in the Bay Area, this book is a handbook and a map of my early days.
The 60's and early 70's had so much to offer musically, and people like Chet Helms and Bill Graham gave us venues to see the best music had to offer. So much of this book brings back memories I had forgotten. Joel Selvin really does give a Musical History Tour of the Bay Area, and I really enjoy his writing. Love this book!

I love this book. It has all of the names and places that I grew up with in San Francisco. So interesting to get the history of all of the different venues that are still there and some that are long gone.

i've lived in san francisco since 1966
i was interested in which clubs or spots Joel might write about, and i was not disappointed to
find out he covered all of them plus some
i was in my twenties in the 60s and 70s and remember frequenting most of the places he covers,
and he does so mentioning the owners, some history os the spots, etc, just thorough, i'd say

excellent book, especially for people who lived through the 60s and 70s
