Eight Miles High: Folk-Rock's Flight from Haight-Ashbury to Woodstock
Richie UnterbergerISBN: 0879307439;
Book DescriptionThis book explores the folk-rock scene from mid-1966 to the end of that decade, when folk-rock began spinning and splintering into many different directions that continue to influence music today. The book traces the interwoven web of innovations and influences that brought folk-rock to new peaks and also marked the inevitable close of the movement's first and most exciting phase. The memorable and varied artists profiled here range from the Mamas and the Papas, Fairport Convention, and the Byrds, to Buffalo Springfield and Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young - not to mention more psychedelic acts such as Jefferson Airplane and the Grateful Dead, and singer-songwriters like Joni Mitchell. Based on dozens of firsthand interviews with top musicians such as Roger McGuinn, Donovan, John Sebastian, and Arlo Guthrie, as well as dozens of photographs, Eight Miles High portrays the creative ferment of the late-'60s folk-rock scene in all its glory.
