5.0 out of 5 stars Electric Paradise, 12 Aug. 2010

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Electric Eden: Unearthing Britain's Visionary Music (Paperback)
This is the book I never thought I'd read. A voice out of the swirling mists that perfectly captures what I had previously thought of as ineffable - the genius locii of Britain as expressed in music. The opening sections are magisterial, linking the sixties hippy/gypsy zeitgeist with Gustav Holst and Vaughn-Williams at William Morris gatherings. And the sense of a slumbering Albion waiting to be roused by an Arnold Bax symphony or a scrape of Dave Swarbrick's fiddle is achieved with great poetic sensibility.
A wonderful, wonderful soaring read.
