4.0 out of 5 stars high quality with a flaw, 7 Oct. 2012
This review is from: London in the Sixties (Hardcover)
'London in the Sixties' delightfully parades you through this city, at a time when it lead the world in fashion. popmusic and other cultural trends.

With an immense subject like this, the author could not avoid making choices. Metzger choose admiringly well, though, offering you a very adequate & high quality overall picuture. His text, as well as his lavish number of pictures, stand out.

Nevertheless this book's high historical value is somewhat diminished by a number of blatant errors in several picture's comments. Starting on page 17, where a photo of the early Beatles is dated in 1967 - which is in my estimation about five (!) years too late. At page 155 we are told that the Rolling Stones' famous free concert in Hyde Park took place on July 6, 1969, instead of on July 5. And, even worse, on page 191 the names of Who-musicians John Entwistle and Keith Moon are swapped.

As I discovered more of such errors, I cannot help wondering how many I missed on subjects I am less familiar with. For a book like this they certainly make a serious flaw. So I decided to grant one star less.
