5.0 out of 5 stars Tells the whole story. A must have!, February 11, 2002
This review is from: Blues-Rock Explosion (Sixties Rock Series) (Paperback)
If you love the blues and you love rock, you HAVE to have this book! It is THE Bible of the blues-rock phenomenon, period. "The Blues-Rock Explosion" is a brilliantly-written compendium that will tell you everything you ever wanted to know about the music you love...where it came from, who the artists were, and how this soulful, gut-punching style of music that grabbed you and never let you go developed and blossomed in the USA and the UK, from the late 50's, right through the 60's and the early 70's. By the end of the book you'll have the WHOLE picture of this seminal, magic era in musical history.
I couldn't put this wonderful book down, and though I was "there" at the last half of the Explosion and thought I pretty much knew who was who and what was what and how it all happened; I learned more from this book than I picked up first-hand from my experience playing this style of music in San Francisco, London and Los Angeles from the 60's to the present day.
The Blues-Rock Explosion is a must for anyone who loves the blues and rock 'n roll. You'll be hooked as it takes you through Liverpool and London, Chicago and Seattle, and profiles Clapton, Mayall, Butterfield & King and all the rest who made blues-rock history. Great book.
