4.0 out of 5 stars The Money pit, 22 Jan 2013

This review is from: Seasons They Change: The Story of Acid and Psychedelic Folk (Paperback)
At times the book does sound a bit like the Monty Python " Toad the wet sprocket" sketch where the band goes through a myriad of name and personnel changes. If you don't know the artists concerned it can be a very dry read. The first half of the book deals with the late sixties and early seventies and it's there my knowledge is good enough to hold my attention. When the book gets to the last ten years though its harder reading for me as I know much less. However, I wanted to find more bands to listen to and this book has given me a list as long as my arm. Amazon should give a copy of this book away to everyone found buying acid/psych folk albums off them, they would soon make the cash back from sales of CDs and downloads of bands you never knew you had to own. There are some good acid folk compilations on Amazon, "Gather in the Mushrooms" and "Strange folk" to name two. Its worth getting hold of these as they will give a taster for some of (what for me were) lesser known names, although despite having lived in Norwich during the height of the first acid folk boom I still haven't heard of Cosmic washing machine.
