Once again, Richard Morton Jack and friends return with an absolutely astonishing tome assessing the underground (as well as the very much overground) music scene of the 60s and 70s in the US and Canada. It repeats the triumphant vision of "Galactic Ramble" with the wonderful juxtaposition of contemporary and modern takes on such hallowed LPs as Pet Sounds, Gris Gris, Bitches Brew, Funhouse as well as deeply obscure major label LPs that bombed on release such as Roger Rodier's wonderful 'Upon Velveatur'. As mentioned in the forward, you won't find any private press albums here - these can be found in the revered 'Acid Archives' book which acted as a blueprint.

I can't stress enough what an enormous volume this is - nearly 1/2 the size again of "Galactic Ramble" - with even more colour images of LP sleeves and contemporary promo adverts. This is such an awesome labour of love and fills me with absolute unbounded geeky joy! I think this one will be hard to beat so buy one now and cherish or repent at leisure when it sells out...

This is the U.S companion to the wonderful U.K "Galactic Ramble", which is one of my favourite (if not THE favourite) music books of all time. It's even 50% bigger than Galactic Ramble i.e enormous but in all other respects follows the same layout/style.
As a pure reference book it is just unparalleled, although i know Vernon Joynson books are equally well praised but unfortunately I've never come across a copy within my price range!!
The fact that some very knowledgeable people have gone to so much trouble to even produce such a remarkable book would in itself warrant the 5 star rating but i must admit if i was simply comparing it to Galactic Ramble i would in all honesty only give it 4 stars as like my fellow reviewer "Rogue" i didn't find it quite so compelling, although mainly for different reasons.
Growing up in the U.K in the late 60's/early 70's I was a big progressive music fan and although aware of many American bands (I loved Mountain and The Velvet Underground) my main focus was on U.K artists and as J.Richard Falk says himself, when commenting on Rogue's review, the U.S mainstream seemed devoid of Prog/Experimental Rock in the early 70's and I think it's the lack of this particular genre in the book that made it a slightly less exciting read (for me at least) although having said that it's still overall a very impressive production especially if you prefer Psychedelic and/or West Coast bands.
To sum up, this is a book that no self respecting lover of music from the sixties/seventies should be without but if I was forced to choose between the two books it would have to be Galactic Ramble.

I recently received this big book and for those who know the Galactic Ramble (GR) edition, everything will be very familiar.
Same structure and style, even though this edition is much bigger.
In general I have to say it's a great work and it covers a lot of known and more unknown stuff so five stars would be appropriate.
But after spending some time with it I wondered myself because I traced a little swing of "the mood" in the comments of the authors, compared to GR.
It's hard to explain and merely subjective but I have the feeling that the reviews in GR were more open minded and had a positive attitude to the music and the products.
In this book I found a lot of comments bearing a very negative and nagging attitude. It seems as it is just impossible to say "It's a good album".
There's always the urge to find something negative on the albums, even if it's a needle in a haystack. It's like drifting away from the point....
Furthermore, there are more used articles from newspapers than comments from the authors, so in connection with the a.m. critisism I wished myself more second or third opinions as a balance, rather than another article.
And because everything seems so negative, my opinions differ a lot more now with the authors than in GR....but this is really subjective.

But apart from this...it's a splendid book that shouldn't be missing in every collectors bookshelf.
