4.0 out of 5 stars Sixties'freshness, 14 Nov 2003
Considered as a minor band, the Smoke had one of the best sound
between beat and psychedelia from 60's UK pop.
In this anthology with rarities, they are at their best,
seconds only to the gurus of the swinging UK (beatles, Floyds, Soft machine).
Great voice, great acid guitars, great rythm !!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Unforgettable times !, 14 Nov 2003
A collection of great pictures from an amazing artist,
master in making a perfect portrait of the Swinging, groovy, hippie and psychy London.
No book shows like this the vibrations of a nostalgic but utopic era of the XX century.
Full of art, beauty and memories.
Great !!!

3.0 out of 5 stars those were the times !, 14 Nov 2003
A well illustrated music encyclopedia of what happened in the swinging UK in the sixties, A to Z artists from the beat to psychedelia, from Action to Zombies passing through Beatles, Stones, Floyds and so on.
A lot of forgotten names and rare colour pictures make the book
an optimum compendium in every sixties' library or record
It isn't a list of discographies, but a pictorial document of
a piece of pop/rock history with exaustive notes about every name.
Quasi excellent, but omitted one of the most important bands of
the Swingin'London: the Soft Machine. Great sin.
