No doubt that Laurel Canyon was a magic place i the sixties, and this book gives you so many details that you feel like having to read it over again. You get stories of all the well known and some not so well know musicians and people in the music business, how Laurel Canyon turned into the center of pop and rock during the sixties. If you are a fan of west coast music this book is a must - what a journey it sends you on, and if you want to double the pleasure while reading, then play some of the music from those who lived in and near the Canyon: Crosby, Stills & Nash, Buffalo Springfield, Donovan, The Byrds, The Doors, Richie Furay, The Mamas and Papas, Neil Young and Joni Mitchell. It's a magical mystery tour and in more than one way a heavy book.

For anyone interested in West Coast music and the musicians that played and this influenced it, then this book is for you. Laurel Canyon was the home and haunt of some of the best musicians of that style and era and this book gives you a glimpse into what must have been a fantastic place to be. This is not an in depth history of the Canyon, it is a book that will give those interested, an introduction to artists and the environment that helped to create the warm, sun on your back, lazy, hazy West Coast sound.

Just got this today.

Stunningly beautiful book. It's been a long time since a book made me drool, but this did.

Anyone into the music from then and there would love you forever if you gave them this as a gift.

I'm really into the music of the inhabitants of Laurel Canyon and read as musch as I can about them and their culture at the time, This is a great book and a must for all similar music fans into the likes of Eagles, Young, Mitchell etc.
