Urban Spacemen and Wayfaring Strangers takes you inside the minds and music of 60s rockers who took chances in the name of art. Blending firsthand interviews with musical critiques, these in-depth profiles tell the stories of visionary musicians who never got their due--and perhaps never cared to.
These underrated artists range from pop acts who aspired only to AM radio fame, to rebel bands whose very names kept them off the air, to groups who flirted with stardom but never made the grade.
