Marvellous read for anyone interested in rock music,
This review is from: "Galactic Ramble" (Paperback)This is a wonderful book which has been well thumbed ever since I received it.
Basically it is an encyclopaedic ramble through 60s and 70s music reprinting some old album reviews that appeared in "Disc and Music Echo", "New Musical Express", "Melody Maker" et al and updating them with contemporary comments from the authors.
This book is slightly different to others of the genre in that it takes the very well known like the Beatles as well as the more obscure like Lucifer's Friend. It is a fascinating read but won't please your bank manager as you'll be seeking out some of the more esoteric releases !!
It is a wonderful companion to Vernon Joynson's books - "The Tapestry of Delights" and "Fuzz Acid and Flowers".
