"David Hepworth's argument is simple: 1971 was "the most febrile and creative time in the entire history of popular music". It's an enormous assertion but he makes his point with infectious enthusiasm . . . Whether you agree is beside the point. This is a compelling love letter to a year of timeless music." (Q)
"A clever and entertaining book . . . Hepworth proves a refreshingly independent thinker. His style is pithy and his eye for anecdotal detail sharp . . . a thoroughly provoking delight" (Daily Telegraph)
"This is no ‘my generation is cooler than yours’ nostalgia trip. Just as movements in art, jazz or TV undeniably had Golden Ages then so too with the long-playing record and its seismic effect on subsequent generations. David Hepworth’s forensic sweep of this astonishing twelve months is thoroughly absorbing and appropriately rollicking, expertly guiding us through one miraculous year in all its breathless tumble of creation." (Danny Baker)
"A good mix of entertainment, insight and odd facts. Hepworth’s thesis is largely convincing" (Mojo)
"An engaging and thought-provoking read. It’s a dry-eyed but deeply felt love note to the date when rock was still busy inventing itself. Hepworth points out more than once that at the time he had no idea how lucky he hwas. He knows now – and so do we" (Mail on Sunday)

I was very disappointed, mainly because the focus is on personalities in the vein of Hello magazine. There was not enough about the music! What was it about the music that made it special: certainly not Every Picture. Got quite a few of the quoted albums but why was it better than 67, 70 or 76?
