Book Description

3 Dec 1998

Readers and reviewers alike went wild for this book when it was first published. It was called 'a photographer's magical mystery tour' and the New York Times Book Review said 'Linda McCartney has taken some thrilling, sweetly intimate, killer-diller pictures of...friends and heroes from that flower-bright, disorderly, uncompromising era.' According to American Photo, 'McCartney's spontaneous style was a perfect match for the live-for-the-moment decade she reclaims thirty years later.'

In Haight-Ashbury she snapped the Grateful Dead sliding down some porch steps. She caught the Beatles on stage and off, captured Steve Winwood and a pouting Mick Jagger and shot strobe-lit cameos of Jimi Hendrix and Jim Morrison in concert. For everyone who experienced the sixties - and everyone born too late to catch the excitement - LINDA MCCARTNEY'S SIXTIES brings rock's legendary heyday back to life.

5.0 out of 5 stars The epitome of 'rock and roll' photography. 15 Nov 2000
By A Customer
Linda McCartney's 'Sixties, Portraits of an era' is a beautiful book with an amazing selection of photographs from a very influential era. It is perhaps, and certainly in my view, the epitome of rock and roll photography. Linda McCartney's photos capure the essense of some of the most famous 'rock & roll' musicians of the sixties, exposing the characters and sometimes tragic stories and lives underneath the glamour and fame associated with these musicians. This book will appeal to young and old alike -from those remembering their youth to those exploring the influential musicians and period of the sixties for the first time. Not forgetting other budding photographers. But the most pleasing aspect lies in the story of Linda herself, the journey of her life and how her friendships with the musicians developed behind the lens, and of course, the photos themselves. This really is a spectacular collection of photographs - if you think I'm being biased read it for yourself! (I would also strongly recommend reading her book 'Sun prints')

5.0 out of 5 stars Natural Light, Natural Rock, Natural Beauty 23 Nov 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
I first saw this book at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and was amazed at the photographs. Mrs. McCartney didn't seem to take posed pictures with bright lights in the musician's eyes. She used natural light and caught the musicians in their natural state. I love this book so much because of the honest quality to the photos. I'd definately recommend it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb photos, often revealing text 26 Aug 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Linda McCartney was a good rock photographer--this should not be forgotten.
Her book "Linda McCartney's Sixties" documents her abilities as well as the access she had to many critical 60s performers. Being an attractive woman with a camera was a bit of an anomaly back then, and Linda took full advantage of this.
Approaching musicians with a combination of wide-eyed interest and complete understanding of the games involved in the business, she combined an artistic sense with insight into the characters of the scene. Her photos of Traffic are some of the best ever taken of the group; one can also say the same for her photos of the Beatles, Rolling Stones, and Janis Joplin.
The text doesn't always tell as much as the reader would want to know. Linda McCartney was a fascinating figure who saw an awful lot of history, but doesn't always place herself fully in the stories she relates. This is too bad; it appears that her personality was a big part of the value and success of her work.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well Done!! 22 Mar 2005
By Mary James - Published on Amazon.com
What a unique and delightful compilation Linda has put together in this book. It has a very "homey" feel, very comfortable and relaxed. Linda definitely had a feel for the right moment to snap the picture - these are as natural as anyone could hope for. What a kick to see so many of these people when they were so young and still often unknown. The family photos are gorgeous and a rare treat. Linda's chatty tone with the text makes it seem as personal and ordinary as sitting down in the kitchen together with a cuppa tea.

5.0 out of 5 stars Linda McCartney lives on! 20 Sep 2005
By Chopper Chick - Published on Amazon.com
I have been wanting this book for so long so I was so happy to find it used on Amazon. The photos are awesome and Lindas' comments on the people and the time it was taken are more than I expected. She was an awesome photographer and I'll bet a wonderful person to actually know.
