Product description

Review

"He doesn't live amongst the rest of us who have to juggle normal lives and responsibilities with our passion for music and the printed word. Harvey's entire life IS his passion for music and the printed word. He is the consummate historian, the cosmic chronicler, a divine human train wreck of Lester Bangs and Carlos Castaneda. He is the yacking warrior of archetypal anecdotes who has authored many excellent tomes but without a doubt, 'Canyon of Dreams: The Magic and Music of Laurel Canyon, ' is his most formidable, dare I say, breathtaking literary work. You don't just read this book, you smell it, hear it and feel it. As a native of L.A. who grew up in the San Fernando Valley and made the trek to Hollywood through the canyon a thousand times, I now traverse that sacred asphalt with a quiet reverence. And instead of turning the music up in the car, I throttle it down now with hopes I just might -- if i really try -- touch the spirits of the artists who made the magic and the music. Br

[In] a stunning graphic layout, Kubernik takes readers on a magical trip into an area that served as the center of rock music for nearly a decade. Fans of the era will eat it up. -Library Journal"
