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.
