Photographer to the stars of Laurel Canyon and much more,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: California Dreaming: Memories and Visions of LA 1966-1975 (Leather Bound)
Anyone owning a copy of a record by the Doors or CSN or Jackson Browne or The Eagles will know Henry Diltz as the photographer of various record sleeves. This lavishly mounted book (ltd edition) is a fabulous visual documentary of California's music from the mid 60s to 1975. In addition to the photos there are also quotes from everyone featured in the book. A marvelous book of this golden era for music, that lost itself on the human highway by the mid 70s. This book contains some stunning photos and the attention to detail is remarkable. If you can't afford the ltd edition version there's a more reasonably priced version due shortly.

Can you tell me IF a more reasonably priced version of this book was EVER released? I am still waiting.

No don't think it was ever released at a lower price, it's a great book but bloody expensive. The photos and detail is superb.

I saw the book at Henry Diltz Woodstock exibition in London. I thought that it was the best book I had ever seen. It is like a musical bible of that period and place. I wish on.

Not as expensive as the INSANE price that is being asked for this USED COPY!! Absolute madness!! Has anyone heard of a recession 'round here.........EVER????

Almost £1,200 for a used copy ? That is madness, it was a limited edition and the care & attention put into the details and outer box are good - BUT that price is ludicrous. I may take my copy to Antiques Roadshow ! Second thoughts maybe not.

Even £750 is UNREASONABLE!!!! There are hard times around at present. Think AGAIN!!!!!
